SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – The Supreme Court of California has unanimously voted to ban judges in the state from working with groups such as the Boy Scouts of America due to their stance on homosexual behavior.

The court voted on the matter on Friday, taking up a recommendation from the court’s Advisory Committee on the Code of Judicial Ethics.

“The Supreme Court adopted the recommendation … to eliminate an exception to an ethics rule that prohibits judges from holding membership in any organization that practices invidious discrimination on the basis of race, sex, gender, religion, national origin, ethnicity, or sexual orientation,” it explained in a press release.

In 1996, the court had banned judges from being involved with the groups that purportedly discriminate against others, but provided exceptions for youth and religious organizations. Friday’s vote removed the exceptions surrounding youth organizations.

“The only remaining exception to the general rule is membership in a religious organization,” explained Fourth District Court of Appeal Justice Richard Fybel, chair of the Supreme Court’s Advisory Committee on the Code of Judicial Ethics. “One other exception—belonging to a military organization—was eliminated as well, because the U.S. armed forces no longer restrict military service based on sexual orientation.”

  1. I guess that the Supreme Court of California will next ban all Eastern Orthodox clergy from chaplaincies, advisory positions and all other representations within the State of California due to our stance on homosexual behaviors and acts. Sin is sin, no matter how you sugarcoat it, politically support immorality and deviant acts or endorse it.
    Abominations before God are just that and individual disbelief in such being sinful and wrong does not change God’s laws.
    These people will, to their dismay, find out that while God is good and loving to those who follow his laws and precepts, He is not to those who willfully follow their own will instead of His.
    Lack of discipline (the root of disciple) and following man’s natural lusts result is fallen and craven men. The cafeteria quality of many (dare I say most) ‘christian’ leaders and teachers will (and does) result in many being consigned to the fires of gehenna.
    Keep your eyes peeled, I’m working on a rare post for ‘A Conservative Christian Man’ that addresses discipline as a necessary forerunner of redemption.
