I say yes to continuing to pressure UPS and yes to the human rights getting involved. The BSA should have their funding cut in order to further feel the blow that comes with the consequence of discrimination.

Also, more on the topic of the majority of the article, Ellen I awesome, enough said.

BSA often claims that they don't discriminate against scouts, but they insist that scouts uphold standards of behaviour. They further claim that rules against gay adult leaders are required to protect scouts, even as they keep scoutmasters who shared pornographic magazines with their charges. Thank god it was straight porn! We wouldn't want to lead the youngsters astray.

But what is withholding an honor earned for no reason other than a scout's sexual orientation--not behaviour--if not discrimination in its most fundamental form?

Nobody should support organizations that have discrimination as a core principle.

I hereby award you the badge of shame for contradicting what you learned in the boy scouts with such a hate fill post. You are a filthy pig scout.

Maybe this homosexual scout can use all the money Ellen gave him and start up a group of homosexual guys that like to take little kids out into the woods.
C'mon, how many parents wouldn't sign their sons up for that?

Considering most gays are anti hunters and not much of a great outdoorsman I can't imagine what may be going on in those tents at night. At least that's what Barney Frank said when his boy got nailed for growing weed in Moody Maine.

We know Barney, we know!

Considering all the molestation cases concerning the BSA involve married men, I'd say the kids would be a lot safer.

The BSA is traditionally known for three things: badges, camping, and circle jerks. More recently, they are also known for BEING jerks.

Better an open and honest gay man than a sneaky molester hiding behind a god, a marriage, and false machismo. Oh yeah, coaches and members of the clergy, also.

Yup. Pedophilia can be found in all colors and professions. As a percent to populus however male/male pedophilia is highest.
