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 proposed policy "introduces sexual issues into an organization that is not supposed to be about that at all," Mr. Eastman said.
"Quite frankly, I think that if anybody's going to leave, it ought to be the ones that are seeking to change the organization into something it's not, rather than those who want to adhere to what it has traditionally always been," Mr. Eastman said. "I'm an Eagle Scout myself, my son's an Eagle Scout and my grandfather was an Eagle Scout. This hits personal."
