Last week the philanthropic arm of shipping giant UPS said it will no longer give money or in-kind donations to the Boy Scouts of America as long as they discriminates against gay scouts and leaders, joining Intel as the second major corporation to recently strip funding from the BSA.
A UPS spokeswoman said grant recipients have to adhere to the same standards UPS does by not discriminating against anyone based on race, religion, disability, or sexual orientation. “UPS is a company that does the right things for the right reasons,”
Well that’s not sitting well with Tony Perkins , President of the anti-gay hate group The Family Research Council who always seems to confuse “right” with “Reich” and is now threatening to lead a boycott against UPS.
“Despite relentless pressure to make its message more politically correct, the Boy Scouts have kept their commitment to keep the organization ‘morally straight.’ Unfortunately for millions of young boys, not everyone in America respects that decision. Instead, their stance on homosexuality has often made the Scouts the target of harassment, ridicule, and now financial bullying. For more than 100 years, the Scouts have focused on instilling character and leadership into America’s boys. They aren’t about to compromise that mission just to placate liberal companies and activists. As a private company, UPS has every right to determine who it supports. By the same token, so do we. With whom will you stand?” – Tony Perkins via press release”
Well good luck with that Princess. I’m sure those humpy UPS guys in their sexy brown shorts are just quaking in response to your press release.
“For more than 100 years, the Scouts have focused on instilling character and leadership into America’s boys.”
And for (at least) 50 of those years, its been documented BSA has broken Federal Law by refusing to reveal the rampant child-abuse within its organization while not allowing in gay scouts and gay leaders.
Once again Perkins shows as long as there’s an evil breath in his body he will continue to spew anti-gay hate till the end.
