The rights of private groups. (Boy Scouts and the Salvation Army)

"If these groups are truly private--only getting money from private sources and donations, then they should have the privilege of creating their own rules. However, once they take so much as a penny of tax money, they must abide by the government's rules."

If you take a penny of tax money do you have to give up your beliefs?

Private groups have the same rights as private citizens, in that they can decide for themselves what they stand for and who they want to associate with.

Does NARAL have to hire Pat Robertson? No. They are a private group, and he openly opposes their agenda.
