Intel pulls funds from Boy Scouts over policy barring gay scouts and leaders

The Boy Scouts of America has lost one of it's biggest corporate donors, Intel, who announced Sunday they will no longer fund the organization until gay Scouts and leaders are welcome within the organization.

Eagle Scout Zach Wahls, founder of Scouts for Equality, launched a campaign urging Intel to pull funding from the Boy Scouts after a report revealed the company gave nearly $700,000 to the Boy Scouts in 2010.

"Intel made the right decision here, in order to live up to their corporate values of diversity, equality and individual liberty," said Wahls. "Companies that support the LGBT community simply can't be in the business of funding organizations that discriminate.

In a statement released Friday, Intel's Chief Diversity Officer, Rosalind Hudnell, said that the company could no longer fund the Boy Scouts of America, so long as the Scouts stand by their long-held policy barring gay troops and leaders from participating in the organization.

Intel is one of the largest employers in the Valley.

A Santa Clara elementary school principal is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on six drug charges, including one that he offered methamphetamine to an undercover narcotics agent he met on a gay dating website. Eric Lewis, 42, principal of Montague Elementary School for seven years, was arrested Thursday at the Caltrain station at Fourth and Kings streets in San Francisco. When officers searched his apartment Thursday, they found a quarter ounce of methamphetamine, eight ecstasy pills, and three vials of GHB, a date-rape drug, according to Sean Webby, spokesman for the Santa Clara County district attorney. “It was a complete...

Intel's measly $700K donation is not something that can not be made up from other corps and individual donations.

We pulled Chick-fil-a’s iron out of the fire, maybe they need to step up or increase their giving to Scouts.

What we have here, folks, is a company taking punitive actions against an organization that will not betray it’s longstanding moral tenets.

It’s as simple as that.

Intel can take their funding and shove up it their USB ports!

We should ask the Intel flunkies if they would let a straight male take their 9-year-old daughter into the woods too.

Actually, the dancers in the Elton John bit were dressed as Cub Scouts, not Boy Scouts. For what it’s worth, it’s possible for young men in the Boy Scout program to be over the age of consent - but not children in the Cub Scout program.

My prediction is that within a year, Intel stock tanks and some new upstart takes over the main processor chip market. The Christian boycott has less effect than incuring God’s boycott.

As is only fitting, Intel just effed itself.

If Intel wants to follow newspapers down the road to ruin - fine. Let ‘em. Maybe Intel only needs the business of liberal elites (less than 5% of the population ) inner city blacks, and union goons. Go for it intel - give the finger to middle class Americans.

If we don’t stop falling for “plausible deniability” from these people, they are going to roll right over us.

If this insanity was going on in the 1950’s, my parents wouldn’t have allowed me to get within 50 miles of the BSA.

Wonder where the funding goes? When I was in Scouts, our troop was pretty self sufficient; bought our own uniforms, equipment, and transport was done by volunteers. We were completely oblivious to some big corporate donor. The only thing we used in the community was meeting in a local public school. I'm sure we could have avoided that by switching to a church. I think BSA is too grass roots to crush. Intel on the hand is dependent on customers.

Both Romney and Obama have supported having gays participate in the boy scout program.

Hmmm, must be a change in management to trigger this action. My guess is the queers, freaks and perverts of Californicate have installed members in the organization. Will make it a point to select AMD on next purchase. Have repeatedly turned down the beggars from United Way because of their discrimination against the Boy Scouts and I tell them why. Several of the beggars doing the actual door-to-door didn’t even realize that United Way favored the queers, freaks and perverts and excluded the Boy Scouts.

Intel is just one among many companies that make whatever it is they are making these days. Do Moslems around the world buy computers with special homosexual blessed parts?

Have they realized yet that if they use Intel chips there are little demons inside that will prevent them from entering Paradise?

There are so many more problems with using homosexual chips with demons I just can't name them all,but I know this information is going to be on the net forever.
