Afternoon Links: Gay Marriage Marches And The Boy Scouts

-- Forces on both sides are gathering momentum as they prepare for the Supreme Court's hearing on same-sex marriage this March.

Same sex marriage supporters are organizing marches on the two days of the Supreme Court hearings this spring.

So are same-sex marriage opponents. "Save the date"!

-- On Sunday, the president called for the Boy Scouts to end its ban on openly gay scouts and troop leaders. In an interview on CBS Evening News, he explained, "Gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everybody else does in every institution and walk of life, and the Scouts are a great institution that are promoting young people and exposing them to opportunites and leadership that will serve people for the rest of their lives, and nobody should be barred from that."
