ATLANTA (AP) -- The UPS Foundation says it will no longer give grants to the Boy Scouts of America as long as the group excludes gays and lesbians from being scouts or scout leaders.
The philanthropic arm of the Atlanta-based shipping giant made the change Thursday after an online petition protesting the foundation's annual grants to the Boy Scouts attracted more than 80,000 signatures.

It will be FedEx for me...or have they turned queer, as well?
If true, I’ll not use UPS any more.
If true, I’ll not use UPS any more.
The media is satan possessed. They just can't stand any organization that attempts to instill virtue into young minds. Or ANY minds.
They all turn queer, inevitably.
Good.. UPS, strike.. NEXT! F%#@%@em.. :)
I’m having trouble keeping track of the growing list of businesses I now refuse to patronize.
seriously - an online petition with only 80,000 signatures from the most radical group in American. Sounds like someone at UPS WANTED this to happen.
I guess UPS hates children.
Ditto...and I ship a lot!
Moreover, much like the Chick Fil-A broo-ha-ha, I'd bet that the majority of those complaining probably rarely use UPS.
Just another example of the tyrannical minority, Leftist tools exerting pressure way beyond their ability to affect any meaningful decrease in a company's bottom line and worse yet, the caving by a big conglomerate like UPS over something like this.
Like UPS, but guess I'll be using USPS and Fed Ex more often.
If true....goodbye UPS in this house.
I think we should buy and island and sent all the gays to it...let them start their own economy manufacturing KY Jelly....see how long it takes for them to go slip slidin’ away...
80K signatures? I doubt all were sincere.
Stand firm BSA!
Thank you Boy Scouts! I hope UPS goes the way of J.C.Penney’s.
This drives me crazy. The Boy Scouts are a private organization. They have every right to make their own rules. If you do not like them, too bad.
The UPS is union. It should not be a surprise that they are no longer giving grants to the Boy Scouts of America.
This will have a serious impact on my purchase decisions; it will eliminate any merchants using UPS. It is very sad to see such shortsighted action by a large business.
I guess that UPS managers do not or cannot see the statistical correlation between homosexuality and pedophilia. Or they do and want to destroy the boy scouts.
I’m dropping my Life Scout off for a meeting as I type this. I will honor UPS action and will be withholding all funds from UPS as well.
I practically never use UPS anymore. They’re slow and too expensive. For being a semi-govt. operation, USPS seems to do the best job, both with on-time and cost. And with the least shipping damage.
That’s right, thanks for reminding me.
what can Brown do to you, little boy?
What they really don’t like are people that are INFLEXIBLE.
If you are inflexible, you can’t be cajoled / controlled into doing things others demand that you do. Which means INFLEXIBLE == LIBS HAVE NO POWER OVER YOU.
My wife and I have no heirs, so BSA is one of the beneficiaries of our estate.
This is insanity.
We don’t put Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts in tents together.
So what is the difference between putting an eighteen-year old female leader in a tent with fifteen year old male and and putting some hypersexed gay leader in there with the kid?
Our culture is going down fast.
Brown short-sleeved shirts, and very short brown shorts....well, just sayin’/s;)
It used to be called "free association". Well, the libs can call it what they want. Their "undocumented workers" will always be illegal aliens to me.
Maybe someone can start a counter petition telling UPS that if they do this the people will no longer use their services?
Now we know the reasons the UPS guys wear tight shorts. Buncha’ fagitos if you ask me. I’ll ask the next UPS carrier to stop here if he’s AC/DC or just DC ~
And to add to my point,
when did sticking to what you believe is right and good, being inflexible or something that requires compromise?
When did an ever-shifting morality become the highest virtue? When did taking the spineless, gutless moral position that “It’s All Good, Baby” become the highest moral pinnacle? Do whatever, we won’t judge - we’ll just attack anyone who doesn’t agree with us. That’s the current highest moral standard of the left today. Hardly inspiring. If you agree with us, you’re awesome. If you don’t you’re hateful.
Who made them the deciders of all things moral? They say inflexible old morals are the reasons why things are the way we are today. I submit the chaos of the last 50 years of moral relativism and the concurrent increasing assault of those with strong Christian moral foundations are seeing the results of their own “do whatever you want, you’re super” no-guilt, no-shame morality - or lack of - has created.
Why do these people do this.
Are Homosexuals so embedded in the United States that companies such as this would sellout boy scouts for queers?
Obviously they are.
What a damned shame that America has more respect for Fudge packers that the youth of America.
What a sick Company
Yep. Same here - No queer.
Besides, Fed Ex is a lot faster, and their packages aren't crushed like the ones you get from UPS.
The majority of the nation supports the little boys. Who wouldn't? This needs to go viral just so companies understand the consequences of bending over for homosexuals (literally).
Well, that answers the question about “what can brown do for you...” Nothing now.... If it’s brown and stinks...must be UPS.
Pure democracy is mob rule.
Dateline 2072 — United Interstellar Parcel Service (formerly UPS), the largest shipping company in the SinoAmerican Superstate, has announced it is withdrawing monetary support from the Omnisexual Youth Scouts of Sino-America due to their discrimination against man-boy-boy polygamous couples and their failure to show sufficient enthusiasm during last year’s Annual Obama Day Parade. “Despite a few hateful protesters hiding in the backwoods of Idaho, shifting demographics and generational views make man-boy-boy acceptance an inevitability,” said the preserved head of Barney Frank.
Big deal, businesses shouldn’t donate shareholder money anyway.
When not contact UPS and see if it’s true first. Maybe they never gave them grants to begin with.
And in point of fact, this issue was litigated all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
The Court ruled that the Boy Scouts have the legal right to discriminate or set standards which exclude homosexuals.
But, the liberals act as if that case never happened, as they continue to harass the Scouts about “discrimination”.
we need to let these companies hear from us
The Pedophilia Movement is making big strides lately
It is an AP story from Atlanta. AP reported that UPS gave the boy scouts $150,000 in 2010. The story by the Associated Press also names the contact at UPS.
I suspect that the UPS will lose considerably more than $150,000 per year as a result of their mean faced, illogical, and unjust action.
And they are harrassing them. This got old a long time ago. They want to force them to change. They are not going to. They don’t have to. They are being bullied.
UPS supports pedophiles? Who knew?!
Fedex appears to have turned incompetent.
Fed Ex for me!
We need to do the same...after all, WE are on the RIGHT side of the argument!
