UPS Nixes Boy Scout Funding for LGBT Support

UPS recently announced it would stop funding the Boy Scouts of America because the Boy Scouts will not risk having its scouts led by scoutmasters who might have a sexual interest in the boys. The Boys Scouts of America faces millions of dollars in lawsuits because of past abuses by gay scoutmasters.

According to a report from the Biblically Responsible Investment Institute, UPS has given over $400,000 to nation’s largest LGBT organization, the Human Rights Campaign. In addition, they have given thousands of dollars to other gay groups.

The Human Rights Campaign keeps track of gay-friendly companies and has consistently given UPS a score of 100 percent. UPS has even bragged about the score. The Human Rights Campaign frequently calls people “haters” and “bigots” if they believe marriage should only consist of one man and one woman.

Attacking organizations which support traditional sexual views may have unintended and possibly life-threatening consequences. For example, a day after the Human Rights Campaign repeated the charge that the Family Research Council was a “hate group,” an employee of another LGBT organization walked in to the headquarters of the Family Research Council, armed with 50 rounds of ammunition and a bagful of Chick-fil-A sandwiches, and began shooting the “haters” who worked there.

According to Thomas Strobhar, President of the Corporate Morality Action Center, “UPS should be careful whom they support with money that belongs to all the shareholders. The Boys Scouts are a national treasure with legitimate interests regarding the safety of the scouts, while the Human Rights Campaign has contributed greatly to a lack of civility in public discourse.”
