UPS: Pull your donations until the Boy Scouts pull their anti-gay policy

There are 28 comments on the www.change.org story from Nov 8, 2012, titled UPS: Pull your donations until the Boy Scouts pull their anti-gay policy . In it, www.change.org reports that:

When asked by a reporter at The American Independent if UPS will continue to donate now that Boy Scouts of America have reaffirmed their policy, UPS spokesperson Kristen Petrella said "This decision has not and will not impact The UPS Foundation’s decision to provide funding to BSA although we evaluate each funding request on an individual basis."

That position is inconsistent with how UPS views workplace equality and it is inconsistent with the Scout Law, which demands bravery, loyalty and kindness.

Until the Boy Scouts of America ends this hurtful policy, they do not deserve the financial backing of companies that strive for workplace equality. Intel Corporation, the Boy Scouts' largest corporate donor, according to The American Independent, recently announced that they would discontinue funding the Boy Scouts after more than 30,000 Americans joined Scouts for Equality's petition campaign. Now it's time for UPS to do the same.

UPS Foundation President Eduardo Martinez should know all too well how senseless and out-of-touch the Boy Scouts' anti-gay policy is. Mr. Martinez serves as Chair of the Corporate Development Council for the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts and is a board member for The Metro Atlanta YMCA. Both of these organizations welcome and benefit from embracing gay youth and leaders in their programming.

The Boy Scouts really cannot afford to accept homosexual leaders. Look what happened to the Roman Catholic Church. Priest abuse was over 80% homosexual in nature and primarily involved Boy Scout aged minor young men, with very little clinical pedophilia.

Yikes. I thought then Pekin Monster was gone for good, dissolved by his own hateful bile. I know he's not allowed sharp objects, but you'd think his keepers would keep him away from the Interwebs as well, except to allow to play mindless Facebook games.

Well.... he's on about a three month cycle of manic depression. It's about time for him to go berserk again.

Did the priest go to the boy scout's house or did the boy scout go to the church?

But you apparently have less respect for the dictionary and proper spelling, you ignorant yahoo.

And just so you know, we all love UPS and Chick-fil-A. It's their policies we abhor. Supporting antigay groups and activities is just not cool. And we have enough respect for ourselves to take a stand against bias and bigotry, even if it means we have to buy our chicken sandwiches at Wendy's and use Federal Express. What do YOU stand for, Brandon?

Woohoo indeed.

Well, Brandon sweetie. There is nothing normal or decent about hating "queers." In fact, your use of that word tells us that you are likely in your teens and scared about those "special" feelings you have for your best friend. if you're older than that, you are unable to escape your junior high school vocabulary and biases. In either case, it's very sad. Just come out already. It's okay. We all know.

But David, the BSA only allows heterosexual leaders. So the child abuse scandal they are trying to hide is about heterosexual men molesting boys.

That doesn't make any sense.

Any man that molests boys IS a HOMOSEXUAL! PERIOD! END OF STORY!

A Male that has sex with another Male is having HOMOSEXUAL sex. If it is a child then they are ALSO guilty of being a pedophile.

And I agree with you 100%. But that doesn't explain why so many of the guys I fooled around with in Jr. High and later were and are heterosexuals. Both of you are basically saying if you ever got a BJ from another guy and never reciprocated in any way you're still gay.

The sex act doesn't determine your orientation.

It's almost like the old claim, "you just haven't had sex with the right woman/man". That sword cuts both ways if you use it.

By NoQ's logic anyone who has sex with anyone of the opposite sex is heterosexual. That's not true. I know lots of gay men and lesbians who had sex with a "straight". Some even became parents as a result. But they are still gay. They simply engaged in heterosexual sex.

That would mean they were BiSexual if they were having sex with both sexes

Sweetie, you might as well describe that as your rutabaga, after all it has as much in common with rutabagas as it does logic. Fact, logic and empirical scientific evidence are laughing at you as you make a complete and utter fool of yourself. You can't even fake having a f*cking clue as to what you are ranting and raving about but insist on ranting and raving about it nonetheless.

Reply if you want to show everybody else what a pathetic waste of human potential really are, but as far as I'm concerned you're done, I already KNOW you are a pathetic waste of human potential. You're dismissed.
