Lockheed cuts ties with Boy Scouts
Marietta (GA) Daily Journal ^ | 12/19/13 | Jon Gillooly

Posted on 12/19/2013 1:07:21 PM PST by madprof98

The Lockheed Martin Corp. is cutting ties with the Boy Scouts of America because the group does not allow gay Scout leaders, officials told the MDJ on Wednesday.

“While we applaud the mission of the Boy Scouts and the good things they do in our communities, their policies that discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation and religious affiliation conflict with Lockheed Martin policies,” said Lockheed spokesman Gordon Johndroe.

The reference to “religious affiliation” has to do with the Boy Scouts’ ban on atheist members.

No facility tours for the kids either. Total lock-out. The local Dems are delighted (see article).

To heck with them. It’s more important that they support buggery than to provide a supporting environment for boys to grow up in.

I didn’t realize Lockhead Martin had that many sexual deviants working there. Just wow!

I thought the BSA vote to allow queers? Maybe that was in the ranks and not the leaders?

Lockheed needs to get a bunch of gay men and then send all their children out in the woods with them.

“While we applaud the mission of the Boy Scouts and the good things they do in our communities, their policies that discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation and religious affiliation conflict with Lockheed Martin policies,” said Lockheed spokesman Gordon Johndroe.

Before he was spokesman for Lockheed, this guy was Obama's deputy press secretary.

Surprise!

Yes. The kids can be Scouts but the BSA doesn't permit gay troop leaders...yet. Once the current gay Scouts are old enough to be troop leaders, that will change. It's an incremental process.

Meanwhile, Lockheed is attempting to look 'progressive' to it's politician friends in Washington that give Lockheed big contracts.

Lockheed Martin has a lot of government contracts. And if Lockheed executives and the BOD weren’t already aware of how much the government was buttering their bread, you can be sure someone pointed that out to them.

This sounds Defence Department related.

They are pushing gay diversity to their contractors.

Shame on us men for allowing females and gays to emasculate us. Let's get back to building SR-71's and Apollo missions. My God, the Feminist-In-Chief's past which includes being raised by a feminist, man-hater Marxist mother and a transgender cross-dressing nanny is costing us dearly.

Hopefully, Duck Dynasty and the current controversy has awakened Americans to start fighting back against the scourge of political correctness run amok. God, we want you back! Please come back to America!!!

Mixed feelings. Lockheed can take flying leap. Then again the BSA is a shadow of what it once was and should be now.

Some days, I really want the muslims to institute shariah law for about a year. It would be worth the dhimmi tax to rid ourselves of homosexuals and feminists.

Cyclotic also cut ties with Boy Scouts. My son earned Eagle last week. Four days later, our troop held our final meting and I hung up my uniform as a Scoutmaster for the last time. On January 6, we will hold our first meeting as a Trail Life USA troop.

I’m not blaming the Scouts, but when you depend on either corporate or government money for your mission - you will find there are always strings attached.

Lockheed seems to be “sending a message.” I don’t think it will be too long before they start firing Christians.

Unfortunately, my daughter is an engineer working for Lockheed Martin.

I guess all anybody needs to know is the geographic location of Palo Alto, CA in order to figure this out.

This and all the other corporate actions against the BSA and similar organizations is a direct result of incorporating “Diversity and Inclusion” programs.

Political Co-wreckedness is destroying the very fabric of this Nation.

The Scouts thought that allowing gay Scouts would shut them up.....Of course it didn’t.

All it did was embolden them ever more while ticking off their traditional supporters.

That’s what happens when you try to please everyone. It just makes everyone mad.

Forced on them by the thug ‘administration’.

That said, LM should have been nationalized a long time ago. They build nothing that is sold commercially anymore, might as well be part of the relevant agency that needs their junk.

For those of you shocked by that comment: recall that the Navy built their own ships for centuries, and the Army made their own rifles and artillery.

Where the folks at A&E television apparently would prefer “a man's anus” ... the folks over at Lockheed seem to prefer “a boy's anus”. I find that disgusting and offensive. Lockheed should be ashamed, but ... I imagine the perversion prevents them from being so.
