Disney Stops Support for Anti-Gay Boy Scouts!
On Friday, Disney announced that they planned to halt funding to the Boy Scouts of America beginning in 2015 over the Scoutsâ€™ controversial ban on gay leaders.
The group voted last year to allow gay youth member, but not gay leaders.
Disneyâ€™s charity guidelines say that groups become ineligible for funds if the discriminate in a manner inconsistent with Disneyâ€™s own policies on the basis of sexual orientation, as well as other traits including, race, religion, and sex.
My son was asked by his friends to join the Boy Scouts but I told the other moms that we don't join groups that discriminate. I'm happy to see this news about Disney.
Hopefully, the Boy Scouts rethink their position and change their rules.
