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. Peterson, who works in the Hayden office of the Inland Northwest Council of Boy Scouts, could not be reached for comment on Friday/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
