On Friday, Disney announced that they planned to halt funding to the Boy Scouts of America beginning in 2015 over the Scouts’ controversial ban on gay leaders.

The group voted last year to allow gay youth member, but
not gay leaders.

Disney’s charity guidelines say that groups become ineligible for funds if the discriminate in a manner inconsistent with Disney’s own policies on the basis of sexual orientation, as well as other traits including, race, religion, and sex.

 

Go Disney!

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.

It's surprising that the Boy Scouts would teach kids to discriminate.  I can't believe they get away with that and that any parent would allow their kids to associate with the Boy Scouts.

Just because someone is gay, does not mean they would harm a child.

Too bad the BSA doesn't see it that way
