Disney Stops Funding to Boy Scouts of America Over Gay Ban [Why No Call To Boycott Disney?]
NBCNews ^ | March 01, 2014

Posted on 03/01/2014 3:42:55 PM PST by Steelfish

Disney Stops Funding to Boy Scouts of America Over Gay Ban The Walt Disney Co. announced it is pulling funding to the Boy Scouts of America because the organization bans openly gay troop leaders.

Although the Boy Scouts began welcoming gay scouts in January, the group still forbids gay members after they turn 18 — as well as gay parents — from leading troops and packs.

Disney didn't reveal how much money it has donated to the organization in the past, according to NBC affiliate WESH in Orlando. But the entertainment company said it will stop its funding starting in 2015 in a letter that was posted online last week.

Disney dissolved into its own fantasy world and its former sanity has not been heard from since.

LOL! I’ve been a disney denier/boycotter for years. Played a gig at a soundstage in the backlot one time a few years back. It was harder to get back there than my regular job working on the shuttle. Talk about security. $$$$$$$

I thought the Boy Sodomites of America were fag friendly. I don’t have any use for Disney anyway.

Used to be a family friendly company instead of fag friendly. Let them cater to the 1.5%.

Disney isn't cheap to go to.

The free shit army isn't paying admission, its moral Americans with jobs that don't like sex perverts or their supporters.

Boycott Disney.

Since the BSA chose darkness, this is a win-win for people of conscience, even though we still grieve the death.

If the BSA refuses to lift all sodomite bans, they’ll increasingly lose funding. If the do lift it, they’ll lose virtually all their valuable members.

Let it die. The sooner the better.

you are of course wrong having been duped

there are no 7 or 11 year old queers.

a queer scout is likely to have become a deviant after several years of membership

They always want more.

They honestly don’t see the problem in putting boys under the auspices of men who want to have sex with men.

If you don’t trust a middle aged man alone with a 16yr old girl then why is it bigoted to not trust a middle aged gay man with a 16yr old boy?

I accept them being gay, however I reject their demands to “know” young boys.

Oh tut tut, mon ami. Most Americans have been told that you're born a fag . . . and can't do a thing about it. That's what Doprah Witless told us for many, many years . . . and she should know, if you know what I mean. Ask her "straight-prop" Stedmanly.

Speaking of a fagfest (was I?), I'm going to conveniently miss the so-called Oscars tomorrow so I don't have to listen to ellen degenerate promote faggotry while dressed like a man and then have to listen to the "trash American" so-called jokes and filth during the rest of the show.

I've DVRd a bunch of History Channel goodies to gorge on all evening.

Well, I don't accept their "being gay." It's a terrible mental and physical sickness, especially among men that shortens their lifespan by over 30 years. And I'm tired of listening to them carp about we Americans not doing enough to find a cure for AIDS. AIDS is totally 100% preventable right now . . . all they have to do is get mental and spiritual help and stick to it.

“If I never give Disney another dollar...that would be fine.”

That’s my plan. Poor Walt Disney, to have his company taken over by the people that run it now would have made him very sad if he had lived to see it. The same pond scum that run most all of the media now have Disney. What a shameful end to a once wonderful company!

Probably because you’d have to pull the head off a hundred of the Disney mascots to find a straight one.

I wonder how much subliminal messaging in Disney films is directed at warping the sexual identities of children.

I have not paid attention to the Oscars since about 1968. See no reason to change that habit.

I see no problem with Scouts who discover they are gay not being kicked out.

After all, lots of youngsters hit puberty and realize they like the same sex.

BUT they should keep it to THEMSELVES.

Why ruin it for everyone else?

In case anyone has been in a coma for the past couple of centuries, being gay is NOT "cool" to 99% of normal boys.

But Scoutmasters?

Has Disney not heard of the multi-million dollar lawsuits by boys who were molested by the homosexual Scoutmasters in their midst?

Hint: they weren't molested by heterosexuals.

So the conclusion I draw is that Disney is PRO-CHILD RAPE.

Do they REALLY want that to be their position?

BSA made their bed when they decided to pursue the corporate dollar and were then made dependent upon the crack that is “easy money” because they expanded their “professional” ranks.

But there were strings attached, positions on the National Board...influence from corporations pursuing the politically correct dogma of the day, influencing the program down to it’s lowest level...

And here, ladies and gentlemen, is the result of an organization compromising it’s values through poor management and leadership...for money.

The BSA is reaping the whirlwind of what they have sown...unfortunately, the boys are the ones who are made to pay the price of adults acting stupidly, as is almost always the case.

Well said. It has never, for a moment, been any less the mental illness it was defined as prior to homosexuals taking over the American Psychiatric Association in the 1970's.

Lets see if Disney's Frozen wins an Oscar tomorrow night.

Its a 100% certainty that the Frozen song Let it Go will win the Oscar for best original song. The official video of the song, sung by Idina Menzel, has been played 118 million times since Dec 6. The Demi Lovato version of the song has been played 86 million times

I was planning to take my family all 9 of us to Disney since we were going to be in Orlanda for other reasons but not now and not so much even because of the Scouts. I hope the Scouts have learned that the left demands nothing but total submission. They won’t give up till they have an sexual immorality merit badge honoring Harvey Milk and requiring Scouts write a journal exploring their gender identity in relationship to their fellow scouts. There needs to be a push back but conservatives seem cowed not understanding that until we are as passionate in our defense of those things that we love as our opponents are passionate about their depravity we will lose. The irony is that in France they are have a vibrant growing social conservative movement that has been instrumental in driving up Hollande’s negatives but they are out there by numbering tens of thousands in FRANCE! The next French election is likely to throw the socialists out of power and even roll back gay marriage. India has just rolled back gay rights. So when people say it the fight is over they are saying they are simply willing to surrender but of course it wont stop there. We see exactly where the fag-fascists are going with this and their allies. They intend to actively suppress anyone who dares express the simple truth that men and women are complimentary and evolved/were created to forge families mate and have children. That is not just religion that is nature but foolish people in our movement have allowed this issue to be pigeonholed as if gender is a religious construct. Its crazy but in a society where religion is being steadily replaced by a state secular religion there is no limit to tyranny of the modern progressive inquisition.

They used to say they just wanted tolerance but we see exactly what they want and that is dominance. The question is are you going to give up or fight for liberty because that is what is being lost. When you can’t even politely disagree without being called a bigot and screamed down where do we think this will end?

I think it was 1973 when they strongarmed the APA to remove it from the list of "character and behavior disorders."

1996 – The American Family Association (AFA) announced a boycott against the Walt Disney Company (WDC), which the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) joined, when WDC began giving benefits to homosexual employees in domestic partnerships. The AFA claimed Michael Eisner, CEO of the WDC from 1984-2005, "was involved in a media group that actively promoted the homosexual agenda" and was pushing the "gay agenda". Prior to Eisner coming on board, The WDC. had a strong brand image of family wholesomeness. Eisner brought in homosexualist Jeffrey Katzenburg as his 2nd in command. Eisner also produced adult-themed/R-rated films under the new Miramax label. The AFA and SBC ended the 9-year boycott in spring 2005 after Eisner left the company.

2/01/2013 – George Kalogridis became the 1st openly homosexual president of Walt Disney World Resort, where he’ll oversee ~ 66,000 employees. Kalogridis began working at Disney World back in 1971, busing tables; then 17, he was hired before the park’s official opening. Now 59, Kalogridis has put in time as President of Disneyland in Anaheim, CA and Chief Operating Officer of Disneyland Resort Paris. Disney World is the world’s most-visited entertainment resort, featuring 4 theme parks, 2 water parks, 24,000 hotel rooms, 3,000 time-share suites, a 120-acre retail complex and a 230-acre sports campus. Kalogridis plans to make Disney World his home, both literally and figuratively. He and his partner of 12 years, Andy Hardy, are building their own little castle in Golden Oak, the luxury subdivision that Disney World is developing on the northeastern corner of its 40-square mile property.

5/31/2013 – Gay Days has become a weeklong event. Organizers say they expect 170,000 people to participate in some aspect of this year's event, which started Tuesday evening and runs through Sunday. In addition to visiting Disney World, participants have a range of planned events from which to choose across the tourism district and the rest of the Orlando area, including a Taste of Gay Days restaurant exposition, a charity auction, pool parties and other social gatherings. Gay Days, which is based in Orlando, expanded its reach to the Western half of the country last fall with the introduction of Gay Days Las Vegas. Disney began to sprinkle merchandise throughout its parks with designs including rainbows, symbol of the gay-pride movement. Red tank tops with rainbow-colored Mickey Mouse heads began arriving in shops along Main Street USA a few days ago. They were paired in store displays with other rainbow items usually found in the parks year-round, such as rainbow pins and antenna toppers. "We offer a wide range of merchandise items that appeal to guests .

IMO, there are minute degrees of separation between “gay”, “homosexual” and same sex attraction...the “gay” is an obnoxious, in your face activist who is intent on tearing down anything good that reminds them of their deviancy...

I have dealt with exactly one Scout in over 20+ years who we thought was homosexual but had a limited same sex attraction. But I also learned, this CAN be a part of puberty.

The primary difference here is that we were able to intervene, get the boy some spiritual and psychological counseling to help him through...now, some states are passing laws that would make criminals of me and the others who intervened on his behalf.

Homosexual, because there’s nothing “gay” about it.
