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.

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?

Men who touch boys are homosexual child molestors, and they want to put homosexuals with little boys,

SICK PERVERTED IDIOTS and that goes for anyone supporting such utter madness too

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.

I don’t know why these LGwhatevers don’t just create their own groups instead of trying to change everyone else? Should the NAACP have to accept the KKK as members? It’s called ‘right to associate with whomever you want to and DON’T want to.’

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.

Evil has really gotten a stranglehold in this country, from the government corridors to the corporate boards to the vile poison of pop-culture. Almost a total sea-change from a few short generations ago.

Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.”...“Get out of our way,” they replied. “This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge! We’ll treat you worse than them.”

Their theory is that "if we can't force you to accept warped sex freaks and their practices, then we will destroy you."

They don't care about the good scouting does, they don't care about the good Marriage does, they care about forcing their perverted beliefs on those who disagree.

In 1787 we killed these people whenever we discovered one. By the 1960s we just locked them up in mental institutions. Nowadays, we let them dictate social policy to the rest of the nation.

Do what the perverts are doing, and fight back. Write Intel, UPS, and other companies bowing to this liberal political correctness and chide them for bowing to such perverted tactics to allow the stalking gays to “conquer” the Boy Scouts.

We probably can’t hurt Intel, financially, but we can let them know what the majority of Americans think about this tail-wagging-the-dog nonsense.

Many will not agree with my feelings, but if the Boy Scouts cannot survive without money supplied by funders who support faggots and pedophiles, I would rather see them close their doors than give in, than be a training school for Socksuckers & Fudge packers.

This is part of the insanity of our times.

Of course, it needs a firm response from decent Americans.

See Losing America's Multi-Generational Purpose, for where this attack fits into the overall attack on our heritage.

See Boy Scouts Of America & Leftwing Agenda, for the absurdity of having homosexual scout leaders.

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."

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.

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.

http://nglcc.org/files/nglcc-splash/index.html
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.

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.

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

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.
