Supreme Court: Scouts Can Recruit in Public Schools

The U.S. Supreme Court today refused to hear an appeal from an atheist father who wanted the Boy Scouts excluded from recruiting in his local public schools.

This left standing a lower court decision allowing the Scouts the same access that other groups have. According to the Associated Press:
A Michigan appeals court said that Mount Pleasant schools allowed other organizations to use class facilities, including a hospital group, an Indian tribe, a Baptist church, and a hockey association.
Thus we have the continuation of a fairly consistent pattern of courts unholding the principle of neutrality in dealing with religious groups.

Liberals, of course, continue to insist that religious organizations and expressions must be rigidly excluded from the public sector.

But they have neither the Constitution nor the developing case law on their side.
