Walt Disney Company to cut funding to Boy Scouts of America over gay policy
The Guardian ^ | 3-2-2014 | Associated Press in Los Angeles

Posted on 03/03/2014 6:53:04 AM PST by servo1969

The Walt Disney Company will cut funding to the Boy Scouts of America, beginning in 2015, because of a policy that bans gay adult leaders in the organisation.

In December the defence and aerospace giant Lockheed Martin said it would no longer donate to the Boy Scouts, because of the same policy. Last May, the California Senate voted to revoke the organisation’s charitable status.

The Boy Scouts organisation said it was “disappointed” by Disney’s decision, which will affect its ability to serve children, Deron Smith, a Boy Scouts spokesman, said in a statement on Sunday. Disney does not provide direct funding to the Boy Scouts but it donates money to some troops in exchange for volunteer hours completed by Disney employees, he said.

This is a war.

It will not stop until openly queer boyscout troop leaders are allowed to take groups of boys camping in the woods alone and unsupervised.

Then they will demand that little girls who pretend they are boys be allowed to join and go camping in the woods with groups of real boys.

Then they will demand that boyscout troop leaders who dress as women and have breast implants be allowed to take groups of boys camping in the woods alone and unsupervised.

Then they will argue that a 29-year-old troop leader who sleeps with one of his 15-year-old scouts shouldn't be thrown out because 'they're in love.'

When God is thrown out there is no limit. There is no stopping point. There is only a pause before moving on to the next perversion.

Screw Disney. ABC TV and radio - out. Future trips with my grandkids to Disney - out. Purchasing anything Disney - forget it. Disney and the rainbow crowd can KMA. I am so sick of this gay crap. You’d think there were no other issues in the entire world to worry about. ENOUGH!!!!

Amazing how the Boy Sodomites agreed to allow homo children in their troops, which is a major down-step, and it is still not enough to satisfy the sodomite lovers across this decrepit country.

Doesn’t both me in the least though, since I have ceased having any respect for them or their sister group, the GSA.

May they all go to hell and take what’s left of Disney with them.

Not a biggie. It’s not like Faggy Mouse gives a large donation every time.

I do not and will never understand how putting gay men in charge of a group of children is possibly a battle worth fighting. Allowing gay kids in, like they did last year is acceptable to me, but not putting adult men in charge of children. It takes one messed up individual to scar children for life. This is idiocy.

It should be instructive that the BSA attacks from Sodomites were not ramped up UNTIL they relented on their homosexual policy regarding minor members.

Sodomites are implacable. They will not stop until they can legally sodomize boys.

The BSA did this to themselves by their compromise policy of allowing homo members but not leaders. I quite giving because they allow homos at all, and the homosexualists quit giving because they don't have a 100% queer policy.

And why isn't their pro-homo corporatist board of directors not intervening with the big corp donors like Disney? When I was a scout, a good 55 years ago, I don't recall that the BSA was so dependent upon corporate support.

The way the headline was structured I thought it was GOOD news; that funding would be cut because the BSA was allowing open homosexuals as members. Allowing adult homosexuals in leadership roles is beyond the pale.

HOMOSEXUAL, because there’s nothing GAY about it.

The Disney channel fell from grace in our home long ago. For a while it seemed every show was glorifying witchcraft. Put a smiley face on the occult, it is still what it is. We changed channels.

Lockeed Martin is such a piece of shit company. I hated their "tolerance" training that programs everyone that they accept everyone.

I challenged that thinking by simply stating that there are people groups that simply are not desirable because of their disorderly lives and values.

And then I left. If you own LM stock, get out. They are going to fall because of their ungodly ethics and horrible management.

We live in Florida, not too far from WDW, and will never need to go there again. They have way too much influence in matters beyond just entertainment.
Boy Scouts of America need to stand tall or they will have to change their oath...”Physically fit, Mentally awake and Morally straight.” What part of “morally straight” don’t people get?

Lockheed is not unique in this regard...political correctness has infiltrated almost every aspect and level of society, corporate America and the US military...the queer factor ranks very high...

I sense, by your persistent denigration of anything/everything Lockheed that your separation was on, shall we say, less than amicable terms?

There already is a sodomy badge...sort of: This isn't an official badge, but scouts can order this online and wear it on their uniform...almost daring fellow scouts and leaders to be 'bigoted' enough to tell them to take it off. Its the brainchild of a high school classmate of mine...and fellow Boy Scout. And, somewhat ironically he worked at Chik-Fil-A throughout high school. I never had an inkling he was gay. He has no kids of his own, but around 5 years ago he tried to become a scout leader. They turned him down - because he was gay. And, he's become an activist ever since. Oh, when people buy this badge from him online, they are contributing money to his lobbying and court efforts. Before people ask, he is not somebody I would consider a friend. And looking back on it, he really didn't have any friends in high school. He has an arrogant and bossy air to him, and even when he was in a group, like the scouts, he operated on his own.

I have to agree and have long realized that there is no limit for the homosexual agenda. No matter what is allowed, it will never be enough. Each concession will just encourage the gay activists to push for more and more and more. Some activists openly talk about inter generational sex and that by not allowing it we are denying boys their “rights”.
As for Disney, I simply try to have as little interaction with them and ABC. To buy their products or watch ABC is to support people whose views are the opposite of mine.

I'm glad I knew the Wonderful World of Disney of old, when the Kingdom was still magical, instead of the politically correct battleground for American sodomy rights it's become.

Thanks for the memories, Walt! I hope you understand why I haven't been back. I guess you really can't go home again.

a lesson in the tactics of the left. you cannot compromise with them. when you give them an opening, they will use that opening to go further.

they will not stop. ever. they’ll always find another goal.

you cannot stop them, at best you can contain them. once you give an inch, they will smell blood and only come at you with renewed vigor.

Let's just say I won't be using any LM employees for references. As for their stock, it naturally went up with the F-35 project: but once DoD realizes its unaffordable piece of shit, in which they were gouged, it will plummet.

I wouldn't trust Lockheed to design, build, and fly a kite.

Let Disney make its money from the children of homosexuals. We have also blocked ESPN from our DirecTV, since they are a part of Disney and promote homosexual athletes as though they were their agents.

...in that regard, one has to feel for Jerry Sandusky and for Penn St...if they could have maintained the subterfuge for another few years, Jerry could have been blessed for acting as his nature required, and Penn St could have been glorified for not being harshly judgmental...

So let me get this straight. The BSA bow to the PC police and start accepting gays into their organization and everyone here at FR bashes BSA for giving up on their long held biblical belief that homosexuality is a sin. This was followed quickly by predictions of massive loses to BSA and a call not to ever support them.

Now we get Disney saying they are no longer supporting BSA because they are now supporting gay members and now we have many people her on FR bashing Disney.

Am I missing something!

The Boy Scouts sold their independence when they started accepting money from corporate America. America’s Ministry of Culture (the Disney Corp) is just another in a long line who are paying dollars to have the Boy Scouts dance on a string.

The last movie Walt was involved in personally was Follow Me Boys. Talk about irony.

If you haven’t seen it, it is timeless. A young Kurt Russell is one of the main characters.

He PERSONALLY got involved in the movie and was a huge proponent of Scouting while he was alive.

Ironically, it serves about the same purpose today as it did then - father surrogacy and training people who have had kids how to be proper parents.

The Scouts are guilty of capitulating to the sodomite lobby. Conservatives justifiably condemned them for this betrayal.

Disney is demanding to FURTHER homosexualize the Scouts. Conservatives justifiably condemn them for this attack.

Clearer? Or should I type more slowly?

Get this. The BSA required all adult scout leaders to go through YPT (youth protection training). The purpose of this is to raise awareness and prevent child abuse by adult leaders. It is very similar to the Virtus training in the Catholic schools.

Then they go full 180 degrees with gay scouts.
Gay scouts will grow up to be gay scout leaders.
How can the BSA square with a counteracting policies?

They can’t. They have to choose one way of the other.
Looks like they are going to knuckle under again.

Disney isn't supporting the B.S. troops because they won't let gay scoutmasters take the troops out for a "special moment" in the woods. Disney want them to be even more inclusive.
