Boy Scouts 98, ACLU 0

Speaking of the Civil Liberties Union (national division), at least suing on behalf of teens who want to stay out at night is an interesting social question. The ACLU spends so much time and energy on its obsession with driving all religion out of the public square that it's sometimes hard for me to take it seriously on other issues. The idea that the founders, in trying to prevent the establishment of a national religion, somehow meant to keep Bibles off teachers' desks and the 10 Commandments and Boy Scouts off government property, is preposterous. At least now the the U.S. Senate is sticking up for the Scouts, in a big way, so maybe the tide is turning. But, really, who'd have ever thought anybody would have to stick up for the Scouts, and that we'd consider it a major victory in the culture wars.
