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 organizations 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 dont 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 Intels 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.

ever notice how even our side ignores much of the homosexual agenda and fakes like Hannity will never discuss social issues even as kids get hurt.
The media will never mention that it is homosexual men touch boys
got better than that here.
I woman with about 10 kids got a really nice home built for her, land and al the furniture.
Beautiful house it is but guess what.
The woman was not happy with that, no sir/mam she wanted us the tax payer to pay her taxes on the house and would not work due to her not wanting to lose her welfare.
When she was refused to have us pay her taxes she then cried racism..
I’ve seen a woman demand her kid get free breakfast and lunch as she is on food stamps, which doe snot make sense as food stamps is supposed to give her food so why the need for her kid to get free food at school.
Anyway she leftt he scholand jumped into a pearl white all chrom caddy escalade.
As for these mentally sick homosexuals, they are so radical now and so immature that they just can;t now understand why people , normal folk say nature/God made man and woman for a reason.
Yuk, control your imagination gilb :)
Pastor’s across the country warned everyone that homo’s did not want equal rights...but they wanted to change society...well....here we are. We had better stand up now.
