California Senate Action On Boy Scouts Might Make Me A Grover Norquist Groupie

News from the Golden State !! Boy Scouts Nonprofit Status Stripped In California Legislation .

Well how about that. There is a lot to say about this , but here is something for people of Faith to chew on that advocate for higher taxes for the common good. How does something like this help that ? I am always amazed at the amount of people that want to punish speech , beliefs and associations they don't like through the tax code. I always find that a tad frightening and more so recently since it appears to be in more vogue.

Here we have California that has made the choice , a quite mainstream one no doubt , to have some fairly high taxes to do among other things care for the least among us. I really wonder though if the common good is using that dynamic as a tool to punish views one does not like via the State  tax code.

The next question is of of course who is next ?
