Idaho Sheriff Threatens to Dump Boy Scout Charter over Gay Inclusion

Is also apparently unaware antisodomy laws have been declared unconstitutional

|

The Kootenai County Sheriff said Friday that he is compelled to drop the department's Boy Scouts of America charter because the organization is promoting a lifestyle that is against state law.

"It would be inappropriate for the sheriff's office to sponsor an organization that is promoting a lifestyle that is in violation of state law," Sheriff Ben Wolfinger said.

Sodomy is against the law in Idaho, he added.

"I have talked with Chris Peterson about this and sent him a copy of the law," Wolfinger said.
