Intel pulls funds from Boy Scouts over policy barring gay scouts and leaders
ABC15.com ^ | 9/24/12 | abc15 staff

Posted on 09/24/2012 1:09:17 PM PDT by madprof98

The Boy Scouts of America has lost one of it's biggest corporate donors, Intel, who announced Sunday they will no longer fund the organization until gay Scouts and leaders are welcome within the organization.

Eagle Scout Zach Wahls, founder of Scouts for Equality, launched a campaign urging Intel to pull funding from the Boy Scouts after a report revealed the company gave nearly $700,000 to the Boy Scouts in 2010.

"Intel made the right decision here, in order to live up to their corporate values of diversity, equality and individual liberty," said Wahls. "Companies that support the LGBT community simply can't be in the business of funding organizations that discriminate.

In a statement released Friday, Intel's Chief Diversity Officer, Rosalind Hudnell, said that the company could no longer fund the Boy Scouts of America, so long as the Scouts stand by their long-held policy barring gay troops and leaders from participating in the organization.

Intel is one of the largest employers in the Valley.

Intel was apparently the largest corporate supporters of BSA. But surely their new policy will change as soon as angry mobs of Christian activists paint signs on the walls of corporate headquarters . . . oh, they don't do that?

What could possibly be wrong with homosexual men taking little boys into the woods overnight?

Please find someone signed up who can post this at the site of the original article.

When Gay travel magazines compare over 100 countries for the availability of little boys for sex, that’s a link.
When the Gay Platform of 1972 contains objectives like the repeal of all sodomy and age of consent laws, that’s a link.
When even Kinsey stated that 37 percent of the homosexuals he interviewed admitted to deviant sex with underage boys, that’s a link.
When more recent research finds that the homosexual rate for child molestation is through the roof compared to heterosexuals, that’s a link.
When the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) and its’ modern counterpart, B4U-ACT, both petition for the removal of laws and stigma of man-boy sex, that’s a link.
When Elton John holds a concert with male dancers, dressed as Boy Scouts, who writhe suggestively on stage, and the crowd goes wild, that’s a link.
I could go on, but I think the Readership gets the idea that we’ve seen enough headlines about Scoutmasters, dirty priests and high school coaches have been bunning little boys for so long that we have come to the inescapable conclusion that a very high proportion of homosexuals have a sick and salivating interest in little boys.

But how is ‘gay America’ going to meld with ‘Sharia America’? LGBT and Islam are both being forced down the throats of Americans.. I suppose this is more about CRUSHING THE FOUNDATION OF AMERICA (CHRISTIAN VALUES) AND OUR CONSTITUTION. The perpetrators of this progressive approach to killing America don’t care about the messy details.

This society is bound and determined to destroy every vestige of traditionalism that made America the great country it was, before it became the cauldron of perversion it is now.

The queers have drooled over the hope of getting at the Scouts for decades. I hope the Scouts hold strongly against this latest assault.

Let's see if we have the complete picture here.

1) Big donors to the BSA pull their funding because the Scouts don't admit homosexuals.

2) Meanwhile, the BSA is currently under barrage from various criminal law cases due to the abuses inflicted on boys by homosexual Scout leaders who mananged to sneak past the screen.

If I wanted to crush an organization like the BSA out of existence, I couldn't think of a better scenario.

A Santa Clara elementary school principal is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on six drug charges, including one that he offered methamphetamine to an undercover narcotics agent he met on a gay dating website. Eric Lewis, 42, principal of Montague Elementary School for seven years, was arrested Thursday at the Caltrain station at Fourth and Kings streets in San Francisco. When officers searched his apartment Thursday, they found a quarter ounce of methamphetamine, eight ecstasy pills, and three vials of GHB, a date-rape drug, according to Sean Webby, spokesman for the Santa Clara County district attorney. “It was a complete...

Intel's measly $700K donation is not something that can not be made up from other corps and individual donations.

We pulled Chick-fil-a’s iron out of the fire, maybe they need to step up or increase their giving to Scouts.

Actually, the dancers in the Elton John bit were dressed as Cub Scouts, not Boy Scouts. For what it’s worth, it’s possible for young men in the Boy Scout program to be over the age of consent - but not children in the Cub Scout program.

My prediction is that within a year, Intel stock tanks and some new upstart takes over the main processor chip market. The Christian boycott has less effect than incuring God’s boycott.

As is only fitting, Intel just effed itself.

If Intel wants to follow newspapers down the road to ruin - fine. Let ‘em. Maybe Intel only needs the business of liberal elites (less than 5% of the population ) inner city blacks, and union goons. Go for it intel - give the finger to middle class Americans.

Wonder where the funding goes? When I was in Scouts, our troop was pretty self sufficient; bought our own uniforms, equipment, and transport was done by volunteers. We were completely oblivious to some big corporate donor. The only thing we used in the community was meeting in a local public school. I'm sure we could have avoided that by switching to a church. I think BSA is too grass roots to crush. Intel on the hand is dependent on customers.

Hmmm, must be a change in management to trigger this action. My guess is the queers, freaks and perverts of Californicate have installed members in the organization. Will make it a point to select AMD on next purchase. Have repeatedly turned down the beggars from United Way because of their discrimination against the Boy Scouts and I tell them why. Several of the beggars doing the actual door-to-door didn’t even realize that United Way favored the queers, freaks and perverts and excluded the Boy Scouts.

Intel is just one among many companies that make whatever it is they are making these days. Do Moslems around the world buy computers with special homosexual blessed parts?

Have they realized yet that if they use Intel chips there are little demons inside that will prevent them from entering Paradise?

There are so many more problems with using homosexual chips with demons I just can't name them all,but I know this information is going to be on the net forever.

Just one faggot named in the lawsuits with a connection to Intel ~ as a reseller, employee, manager, or major customer’s buyer ~ and that’s where the lawsuits get referred to ~ Intel ~ I am sure somebody in Boy Scouts’ defense team is on that right now, and that could well be the link anyway.

National funding does support some things that make it down to local level, like training for adult leaders. The individual troops are, however, almost completely financially independent, and could easily become fully independent if necessary.

In fact, the troops give a lot to the national organization through dividing the money collected through popcorn sales. I have been with my son's troop the past two weekends while they sold popcorn outside a large grocery store - I won't cause the store problems like a boycott by revealing their name.

The sale have gone really well, and that's good because National dramatically increased our quota this year. Almost everyone reacted well to being asked to buy. While not everyone bought the expensive popcorn (with today's economy? Are you kidding?), most responded with statements of support, and many gave a dollar or two as a donation.

There were two negative incidents: one guy gave a dirty look and spit on the ground; other dude stuttered that he would buy "when they stopped discriminating." I'm guessing these guys are not morally straight.

Well - unfortunately this isn’t true. While troops might be self-sufficient (some aren’t..) the level up troops run ONLY on donations from the community. I’m talking about the council level offices. That place where you bought your uniform or the Scout Master ordered the merit badges costs money to keep open. They have staff there that oversees record keeping of the Scout’s advancement, coordinate operations of the Summer camps owned by the councils, etc. Money for these operations comes primarily from donations.

What you said and.....why do organizations like the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts need “corporate support” from anyone? What they need is leaders! When I was a Girl Scout leader, a long time ago, there was no corporate support, and there was very little parental support either. How did corporations ever come to be involved anyway?
