H31N0US: Hunter_Worthington: That's awfully short sighted of them. Nothing says grind a political axe like burying it in the backs of the nation's youth.

Intel and UPS should be proudly supporting the Boy Scouts instead of making short sighted, spineless decisions like giving into the bullying of the professional homosexuals, whose only accomplishment is trying to destroy the achievements of others.

They really are pathetic.

0.5/10, although "professional homosexuals" is kind of catchy.


Wonder if they are anything like executive transvestites

kmmontandon: The Scouts' anti-gay stance is fairly ironic considering the rumors surrounding Baden-Powell's "friendship" with a close male friend.


What do you expect from the author of "Scouting for boys?"

Jake Steed: Looks like I'll being going with AMD and Fedex


Why? Neither of them are BSA donors either... They may have just been smart enough to stop giving sooner, or never start giving... But, if you think either company supports their homophobic policies, I think you're deluding yourself... You best go start your own Bigots, Inc. shipping and CPU manufacturing company...

Men having sex with boys is exactly why the scouts is trying to prevent gays from serving as leaders. Looks like abunch snuck in.

So you think that Intel and UPS have some sort of obligation to fund the BSA?

Why do you love socialism so much?

trappedspirit: uttertosh: Aarontology: Barfmaker: How would you compare this to the Penn State thing?

Scope. The Boy Scouts had many, many, many more victims.

All while claiming to be a moral organization.

we need to ban the scouts and the catholic church now? Maaaaaaaaaan is this witch hunt shiat getting old.

Why all the hate for man boy love?

Well, to be fair, I can't think of a single organization that doesn't encourage and cover up child rape. And it's obvious they are covering it up because you don't hear about it.


So that's the reason for all the hatred/misunderstanding for man boy love? Hiding the truth?

Shouldn't we all be a little bit more accepting of other people, just like DrPainMD: says?

Hopefully honesty and truth will win, and the true global spread of man boy love will be revealed in an ecstatic gush of global acceptance over the tempting, but downright dirty face of bigotry, ushering in a new dawn of peace an revelry that man and boy alike can really get behind and give two thumbs up!!

Even With A Chainsaw: Joe Blowme: So instead o starting their own "gay" scouts group, they try to ruining the straight one... pathetic.
I wonder if they donate to any muslim groups who actually want to kill gays?

UPS and Intel don't have a responsibility to start any sort of organizations. They are, however, free to cut funding to organizations for whatever reason they see fit.

But you knew that already, since you were just trolling.


right, but i was not saying UPS should start the group...But you knew that already, since you were just trolling

Aikidogamer: Mean Daddy: This is the difference between liberals and conservatives. If this was a big deal for me, as a conservative, I look at it and say, why doesn't someone create a "liberal" version of Boy Scouts and COMPETE against them. Homosexual leaders, great.

A liberal on the other hand, wants revenge and THEIR values pushed on the organization.

Pretty much this...

The other thing that comes to mind is this is how far the political correctness trolls have gone. Companies are now attention whoring by doing things publicly to appease the PC trolls. Nevermind the fact this organization is one of the best youth organizations when it comes to teaching usefully skills and promoting confidence...no lets yank our money for attention.


No, lets yank their money because their discriminatory policies conflict with the policies of companies like UPS. As a conservative, you should be supportive of this action. It is a perfect example of economic laissez-faire. Let the corporations that fund the scouts vote with their money and do with it as they please without outside interference.

Also, as a conservative, I am sure you would like to see the BSOA lose their government funding. We need to cut spending and the scouts can surely find their funding through private charitable donations that do not involve our tax-dollars.

Homosexuality is a crime


Where do you two get this shiat from? There are sects of Christianity who also feel the death penalty should be imposed on gays (even American politicians have insinuated as much) your stupid generalizations (muslim group = wants to kill gays) is sorely lacking. Go back to bigot-town.

cy_co_whore: But having a son who is in Scouts I always wondered how I would handle this. He is almost 12 and he knows what someone being gay means, but I would have really hated to have to explain it to him when he was too much younger because his leader had brought his boyfriend to a meeting or on a camping trip (like a lot of leaders whose wives are involved at the cub scout level.)


You would say "Most men have women partners, but some men have other men as partners and some women have other women as partners." Your child would then nod, accept it, and move on to other things that concerned him more.

MagicMissile: Its supposed to be an organization for young boys... I don't understand societies fascination with wanting to read see and hear about homosexual relationships going on in the Boy Scouts. Its like some kind of pedophiles fantasy that has spread through the politically correct zombie landscape known as the U.S.A
In short, our country has gone to hell in a hand basket and there is no saving it at this stage of retardation.


Man, the trolls in this thread just aren't working very hard. Even the grammatical errors are grade school stuff.

If, by immediately, you mean over the coarse of 100+ years, and if, by ostracized, you mean companies and people decide to stop giving them free money until stop acting like bigoted assholes, then I completely agree with everything you just said.

People shouldn't give to the Boy Scouts because they covered up thousands of cases of their people raping children.

Even if they reverse their bigoted policies, they'll still be an organization that covered up child rape.
