Stemberger claims that the BSA vote will affect the marriage cases at SCOTUS

John Stemberger
John Stemberger, head of Florida Family Policy Council, is a Florida lawyer with a mediocre legal education and mediocre intellect. He has become the right's point man on Scouting discrimination.

Today, in an email:
Homosexual activists, having convinced BSA leadership to spearhead the proposed change in policy (which would force every Scouting unit to allow open homosexuality among its boys), know that losing this issue would be the biggest set-back for the homosexual agenda in America yet, also affecting literally millions of young Boy Scouts.
This issue has been propelled by circumstance in contrast to some sinister group of activists. In many ways, momentum began in 1997 with a straight 12-year-old Scout, Steven Cozza, who activated Scouting for All. Cozza (now a professional bike racer) saw this an issue of fundamental fairness. Of course, when people start railing against the "homosexual agenda," they sound more like birthers or truthers. It is impossible to reason with conspiracy theorists. Stemberger goes on to write:
They also know if they can win this BSA battle on May 23rd, this will likely to be taken into consideration by some U.S. Supreme Court Justices as they deliberate and announce their decision on whether to overturn the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in June, which currently defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Also, if gay activists win, you can bet they will be celebrating their victories in all the LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) parades in a few weeks – June is Gay Pride month.
Suffice it to say that Stemberger has some issues. What he is suggesting is that people should donate to his cause in order to prevent gays from "celebrating" equality, apparently at his expense. Eliminate discrimination and it is the Scouts who are "winners." The Scouts are supposed to support and depict American values. As Americans we place considerable value on eliminating discrimination.

And, no, I seriously doubt that any action taken by the Boy Scouts will, in any way, affect the marriage cases  before the Supreme Court.When, exactly, does this schmuck have the time to practice law and who would hire him? He is a graduate of third-tier Samford Law. Hopefully he is at 14 minutes, 30 seconds.
