501. the Gay Oreo

The rainbow cookie that Oreo posted to its Facebook wall is just the latest example of corporations coming out in support of gay rights. Meanwhile, according to Chuck Norris, President Barack Obama and his administration are working behind the scenes to create a "pro-gay Boy Scouts of America."

The issue of gay members and leaders in the Boy Scouts of America came to a head in 2000, when the Supreme Court ruled that since the BSA was a private organization, it could restrict its membership. But in April of this year, a resolution that would permit individual units to accept gays as leaders was presented at the May Scouts national meeting, along with a petition from with over 275,000 names protesting the removal of a lesbian den mother.
