It doesn't pay to cling to old prejudices and maintain discriminatory policies anymore.

You're not kidding! When the general public realizes that the United Way cut off the Boy Scouts for such a frivolous reason the United Way will lose millions of dollars in donations.

When the United way chapter in my area reduced funding to the Boy Scouts this year to only the Boy Scout Scholarship Fund, they received an all-time record donations.

Only if you assume "the general public" are a bunch of hateful petty bigots, or... more to the point... you assume they think like YOU.

The bad news is, some people will cling to their "right" to hate and discriminate until the day they die.

The good news is... they WILL die.
