City Evicts Boy Scouts For Anti-Gay Bias

     PHILADELPHIA (CN) – The City of Philadelphia wants to evict the Boy Scouts of America from the rent-free property that has been its headquarters since 1928, for violating the city’s anti-discrimination policy. The city says the Scouts’ Cradle of Liberty openly discriminates against homosexuals.




     The city owns the property on Spring Street and under the 1928 agreement the Scouts must surrender it within one year after being given notice by the City Council, according to the claim in state court.
     The city gave notice in July 2006, asking the Scouts to leave or pay fair market rent, because of the organization’s discriminatory policies.
