WASHINGTON, Dec 1 (LSN)  Yesterday, the US Supreme Court rejected an appeal by a gay Boy Scout leader who charged the youth organization with discrimination after it discontinued his services because of his active homosexuality. Charles Merino became the second former Boy Scout leader to be denied access to the young boys by the Supreme Court. In 1984, former Eagle Scout Timothy Curran, a practicing homosexual, lost his Supreme Court battle to lead a troop of young boys.  Homosexual activist lawyer Evan Wolfson of the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund revealed that numerous other attempts to legally force admission to the Boy Scouts are being pursued in the lower courts. “The lead challenge to that policy is right now in the New Jersey Supreme Court,” Wolfson said.
