Boy Scouts get the shaft

Once again the Boy Scouts, that rebellious, anarchist, spawn of Satan organization has drawn the ire of the peace loving, god faring, pillars of virtue the ACLU (via the Rottweiler):

The Pentagon has agreed to warn military bases worldwide not to directly sponsor Boy Scout troops, partially resolving claims that the government has engaged in religious discrimination by supporting a group that requires members to believe in God.

No, surely not, no. An optional, private organization asking people to follow their guidelines? Heaven forbid. Here's a tip for you whiners out there: if you don't like the rules, don't join! Start your own damn group! Let's sue the girl scouts for not allowing boys in, or McDonald's for making people fat, or bulglars suing the people they tried to rob when they get hurt on their propoerty. I don't care if the government gives the boy scouts money. Good for them. Everyone wants the government to pay for health care, and reasearch, and special interest programs, but because this group thinks God is a good guy and would like their members to respect him, that makes them brain washing fascists. Go figure.
