I just heard a headline on the news at noon that the US Supreme Court has
ruled in favor of BSA on their fight to require a belief in some form of
God, supreme being, etc. They ruled that the requirement DOES NOT violate
the anti-discrimination laws.
Do you know anything else about the details of the case?
I was trying to track this down in the on-line Supreme Court
resources. Yesterday's order list includes:
93-597 WELSH, MARK, ET AL. V. BOY SCOUTS OF AM., ET AL.
under `certiorari denied', i. e the court refused to hear the case and
let the lower court ruling stand. Unfortunately, it doesn't include
any other details such as exactly what was at issue and what the lower
court ruling was.
