  •  They made that deal... (5+ / 0-)

    In order to preserve their bigotry.  It was only a temporary solution.  Now it is reaching diminishing returns - but they can't just abandon their present position because they have set up their institution around religion.

    •  I don't believe (0+ / 0-)

      that the constitutional right for an organization to espouse a fundamental non-demoninational belief in God is the issue or necessarily an immediate identifier of sustained bigotry.

      You could ask the Church Choir leader and Eagle Scout about that.

      They can change and for the better on the issue at hand without violating their core principals. I believe they will do so.
