A different kind of "jamboree" awaits the 1,400 delegates arriving Wednesday at the Boy Scouts of America's national conference in Grapevine, Texas.
A traditional-marriage organization said Wednesday that it was a victim of political abuse by the Internal Revenue Service and called for a congressional investigation into the matter.
After more than two decades of legal battles, rallies, protests and campaigns, proponents of gay marriage say they are increasingly confident as they await their day in court.
As hundreds of same-sex couples took their long-awaited wedding vows in Washington state Sunday, the constitutional battle in Washington, D.C., over gay marriage was just getting started.
A federal appeals court on Tuesday declared California's same-sex-marriage ban unconstitutional, paving the way for the legalization of gay marriage in the nation's most populous state and setting the stage for a showdown before the U.S. Supreme Court.
Supporters of traditional marriage scored a crucial victory Thursday as the California Supreme Court ruled that sponsors of Proposition 8 and other ballot measures are entitled to defend the initiatives in court when state leaders refuse to do so.
"The only way to determine if a crime has been committed is to conduct a thorough and unbiased investigation into the matter and report the findings publicly," the group's chairman, John Eastman, wrote.
"If they don't let it be fought out in the states, there is going to be an eruption," Eastman said.
