And the Prez get's a badge for being a bad *ss for equality!
President Barack Obama, who is also the honorary president OF the Boy Scouts of America, has joined presidential candidate Mitt Romney in OPPOSING the organization's ban on non-straight boy scouts and scout leaders!
DING DING DING!!!
White House representative Shin Inouye stated Wednesday:
“The President believes the Boy Scouts is a valuable organization that has helped educate and build character in American boys for more than a century. He also opposes discrimination in all forms, and as such opposes this policy that discriminates on basis of sexual orientation.”
While the progressive President's stance on the blatantly discriminatory issue isn't a major shocker, seeing as he's already announced his love for all of Dorothy's companions, the fact that both Barack AND Mitt are against the ban is a gynourmous blow to those who support it.
Come on BS Leaders!
Your president AND the potential future president (eek!) are calling you out on your homophobic, toxic, bull sh*t ban! Get with the future world and stop living in an ignorant past!
