Philadelphia To Scouts: Stop Being Bigots Or Pay Up

A local Boy Scouts chapter embroiled in a battle over gay rights is suing the city of Philadelphia to avoid eviction from their headquarters.

The federal lawsuit seeks to stop the city from evicting the Scouts or from charging the group about $200,000 a year in rent.  The Scouts currently pay $1 annually for the space.

The city says it cannot keep subsidizing the rent of a private group that discriminates. It gave the Scouts until Saturday to revise their policy or pay rent.

The rest.
