LGBT groups target Boy Scoutsí donors
Dallas Voice ^ | October 12, 2012

Posted on 10/12/2012 10:16:34 AM PDT by Zakeet

After appealing to the good will and fairness of the Boy Scouts of America to lift its ban on gays, LGBT advocates have a new tactic: Go after the organization’s major funders, from Fortune 500 companies to the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas. And so far, the new strategy seems to be working.

The group Scouts for Equality, founded by former Eagle Scout Zach Wahls, recently convinced Intel, the Boys Scouts’ largest corporate funder, to cut off support for Scout councils that don’t have LGBT-inclusive nondiscrimination policies.

And this week, a spokesman for the Human Rights Campaign told Dallas Voice that HRC is looking at ways to penalize companies for contributions to organizations like the Boy Scouts in the annual Corporate Equality Index.

Under Intel’s new rule, local Boy Scout troops and councils that do not discriminate and refuse to comply with the official Boy Scouts policy are still eligible for funds.

BSA stands to lose $700,000 a year from Intel.

“We have no problem with councils that have stated nondiscrimination policies,” said Wahls, a straight ally who was raised by two moms.

Since the Intel victory, Scouting for Equality has picked its next target — UPS, which gave the Boy Scouts $167,000 in 2010.

Although UPS is not the next-largest funder of the Scouts, Wahls said the company is highly visible, the Christmas package delivery season is approaching and of its total donation, $100,000 went directly to national headquarters.

Other major funders of the Boy Scouts include local United Way chapters, which may or may not take the Scouts’ ban on gays into account.

“Some United Ways are doing that by their own volition,” Wahls said.

These perverts believe if they can force society to accept and endorse their behavior, they will have better access to victims.

They are immature in their demand for acceptance, which is the entire point of their “flaming” lifestyle.

“...Churches need to step up and donate. Stop funding left wing or moderate “causes” or ministeries...”

Dare we name them? How about Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, UNICEF, and foreign “missions” which do not spread the Word. In Columbus, Georgia it was widely noted that a Habitat home had a $48K SUV parked in front. When asked about it the owner explained that it was not hers...it was her live-in boyfriend’s wheels.

When will business figure out the only 1 to 3% of Americans fit into the LGBT category? What is the cost of pandering this small but vocal group?

That 1% is over-represented in the Media empires of this nation. Thanks to their positions of influence, and the efforts of their collaborators in positions of influence, their voice is greatly amplified over what it ought to be.

Apparently the Nazi Party in command of Germany was mostly Homosexuals.

Ludwig Lenz worked at the Sex Research Institute in Berlin, which was destroyed by Hitler's Brown Shirts in 1933 likely because its records, including 40,000 confessions from members of the Nazi Party, would have exposed the sexual perversions of Nazi leadership. Lenz said that "not ten percent of the men who, in 1933, took the fate of Germany into their hands, were sexually normal."

--------------------------------------------------------------

Many of the guards and administrators responsible for concentration camp horrors were themselves homosexuals. Famous Nazi hunter Elie Weisel was sent to Auschwitz, where he discovered that the head of his part of the camp "loved children," and observed that "there was a considerable traffic in young children among homosexuals there."

A Nazi administrator at Treblinka, according to one historian, "had a harem of little Jewish boys" and "sought in Treblinka only the satisfaction of his homosexual instincts."

4 Churches need to step up and donate. Stop funding left wing or moderate “causes” or ministeries, especially those that aren’t very effective or cost efficient. Give the Scouts not just financial support but a vote of confidence that we won’t give in to blackmail for peds and other creeps.

Nice sentiment, but misplaced. BSA's volunteer structure includes "charter organizations" which sponsor/franchise units, i.e., dens, packs, troops, and crews. The overwhelming majority of these charter organizations are churches. Most of these churches absorb the cost of hosting a unit under their roof, i.e., utilities, etc. The units are expected to be financially self-supporting for their needs. This is a major topic unto itself and methods can be found elsewhere on the web.

Now, the local council offices do need financial support. This is where the battle is being fought today by the LGBTQ insurgency.

10 Shows the sick state of affairs our country is in, when corporations are confronted with decisions to support an honorable institution that teaches true moral guidance like the Boy Scouts, or to cower to the salivating pervs and child-molesters who want to prey upon its young members... and choose to side with the latter.

The Human Rights Campaign’s 9th annual (2011) Corporate Equality Index shows an unprecedented 337 major U.S. businesses earned the top rating of 100 %, up from 305 last year.

As of 7/20/2012 there are 119 corporate partners with the National Gay Lesbian Chamber of Conference.

from Wikipedia:
Loss of support
Some public entities and private institutions have ceased financial or other support of the BSA, primarily as a result of conflicts between their nondiscrimination policies and the BSA's membership policies. About 50 of the 1,300 local United Ways, including those in Miami, Orlando, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Seattle, have withdrawn all funding.[70] The BSA has also lost all funding from several large corporations that had been regular donors, such as Chase Manhattan Bank, Levi Strauss, Fleet Bank, CVS/pharmacy, and Pew Charitable Trusts.[70] For example, Pew Charitable Trusts, which had consistently supported the BSA for over 50 years, decided to cancel a $100,000 donation and cease future donations.[70] A number of public entities (including the cities of Chicago, San Diego, Tempe, Buffalo Grove, Berkeley, and Santa Barbara, as well as the states of California, Illinois, and Connecticut) have canceled charitable donations (of money or preferential land access) that had historically been granted to the Scouts.[70][71][72] 8

Perhaps there should be a laws prohibiting such recreational adult sex groups from associating or interfearing with groups associated with minors. There is no reason for groups that advocate such conduct to be addression issues involving children in any shape or form.

for crying out loud , do these people ever stop with their radical agenda, hell do they even take a day off using NAZI thuggery and tactics?

Why would they? They have a mental disorder and since they pressured the medical establishment to normalize their unhealthy behavior, why expect them to act like a normal healthy person? The radicals are sick enough to not be able to comprehend normal limits of behavior or how sick they look in attempting to sexualize the Boy Scouts.

Any company that stops supporting BSA goes on my permanent boycott list. It’s that simple.

Sodomy repeated thousands of times has turned their brains into jello. So they don't stop. They are clinically insane. In a decent society aggressive pests like this would be punished-------

This homosexual agenda needs to be put back as a mental disorder, as well as cross dressing etc etc etc .

Children are being hurt and those with this mental problem are not getting the help they need.

Either clear up the medical establishment or create a new disorder for forcing your sex on the Boy Scouts.

exactly.

go after companies which support this radical perverted sick agenda, dont spend your money and boycott them.
Speak up instead of being silent and fight back.

The GOP and others have failed and become cowards, there is nothing normal about a man wanting to insert his penis into another mans butt and push turds.
Nothing normal about a woman wearing a strap on and then saying she is the guy and act as if she had a penis.

Nothing normal or natural about a man or a woman acting and saing they are the oposite sex like these cross dressers do.

Bottom line is that they have mental issues and so does a yone who supports them
