I agree that public entities should kick out scouting across California. That would put pressure on BSA to change the policy. I think Lucy Stern actually gave the building and land to the scouts, or to the city with the caveat that scouting could use it. That doesn't mean however that the government has to honor that. If she gave it to the KKK with the understanding that they could use it, the City wouldn't be letting the Klavern meet there. Governmental orgs across CA need to send the message to scouting that they will lose support, chartering orgs, meeting places, etc if they don't stop discriminating. This is how you make change. Am I the only one who remembers South Africa?
