DALE U. The Boy Scouts is a private, not-for-profit organization engaged in instilling its system of values in young people. The Boy Scouts asserts that homosexual conduct is inconsistent with the values it seeks to instill. Respondent is James Dale, a former Eagle Scout whose adult membership in the Boy Scouts was revoked when the Boy Scouts learned that he is an avowed homosexual and gay rights activist. This case presents the question whether applying New Jersey's public accommodations law in this way violates the Boy Scouts' First Amendment right of expressive association.

If you are coming into a troop that has already been functioning well, your Scouts will have planned an activity well in advance. A quick resource for this is pp. This will get you by for a while, but it is vital that this first meeting, of all meetings, is fun.
That can come later. As Baden-Powell, founder of Scouting, said: When you come to look on it as something formidable, then you miss the whole spirit and the whole joy of it; your boys catch the depression from you, and Scouting, having lost its spirit, is no longer a game for them. Let him take his task seriously, look upon his privilege with a desire to accomplish great things, and always remember that the good of the boys is his ultimate aim.

Respect and defend the rights of all people. Your relationships with others should be honest and open. Be clean in your speech and actions, and faithful in your religious beliefs. The values you follow as a Scout will help you become virtuous and self-reliant. And the courage to refuse to do what his heart and his head say is wrong. Moral fitness, like emotional fitness, will clearly present opportunities for wise guidance by an alert Scoutmaster. A Scout keeps his body and mind fit and clean.
He chooses the company of those who live by these same ideals. He helps keep his home and community clean. If you play hard and work hard you can't help getting dirty. But when the game is over or the work is done, that kind of dirt disappears with soap and water. It is the kind that shows up in foul language and harmful thoughts.
DALE "Swear words, profanity, and dirty stories are weapons that ridicule other people and hurt their feelings. The same is true of racial slurs and jokes making fun of ethnic groups or people with physical or mental limitations.
A Scout knows there is no kindness or honor in such mean-spirited behavior. He avoids it in his own words and deeds.
He defends those who are targets of insults. Indeed, neither term in the Boy Scouts' Law and Oath expresses any position whatsoever on sexual matters. BSA's policy statements fail to establish any clear, consistent, and unequivocal position on homosexuality.
V [T]he only apparent explanation for the majority's holding, then, is that homosexuals are simply so different from the rest of society that their presence alone -- unlike any other individual's -- should be singled out for special First Amendment treatment. Under the majority's reasoning, an openly gay male is irreversibly affixed with the label "homosexual.
His openness is the sole and sufficient justification for his ostracism.
Though unintended, reliance on such a justification is tantamount to a constitutionally prescribed symbol of inferiority. As counsel for the Boy Scouts remarked, Dale "put a banner around his neck when he. He created a reputation. He can't take that banner off. He put it on himself and, indeed, he has continued to put it on himself.
Over the years, BSA has generously welcomed over 87 million young Americans into its ranks. In over one million adults were active BSA members. The notion that an organization of that size and enormous prestige implicitly endorses the views that each of those adults may express in a non-Scouting context is simply mind boggling. Indeed, in this case there is no evidence that the young Scouts in Dale's troop, or members of their families, were even aware of his sexual orientation, either before or after his public statements at Rutgers University.
It is equally farfetched to assert that Dale's open declaration of his homosexuality, reported in a local newspaper, will effectively force BSA to send a message to anyone simply because it allows Dale to be an Assistant Scoutmaster.
