UPS Dumps the Boy Scouts Over its Anti-Gay Policies

The UPS Foundation, which gave $167,000 to various Boy Scouts of America entities in 2010, said today that the organization is no longer eligible for grants due to its anti-gay policies, GLAAD reports:

UpsThe UPS Foundation posted the following on its site:

The UPS Foundation seeks to support organizations that are in alignment with our focus areas, guidelines, and non-discrimination policy. UPS and The UPS Foundation do not discriminate against any person or organization with regard to categories protected by applicable law, as well as other categories protected by UPS and The UPS Foundation in our own policies. These include, but are not limited to race, gender, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran or military status, pregnancy, age and religion.

UPS confirmed to GLAAD that under these guidelines, which UPS said have been in development for several months, organizations that are unable to attest to having a policy or practices that align with the Foundation’s non-discrimination policy will no longer be considered eligible for funding.

  1. I fully support BSA and its current membership standards. BSA units (troops, crews, ships, etc.) have always had a few gay members. These matters were handled with discretion within the unit. Scouts and Scouters who have lied to become members of Scouting because of their openly gay lifestyles deserve to be dropped from Scouting, as they have violated the principles of Scouting at its very basic level. Re. UPS, I don't use them anymore. I ship via FedEx or UPS. So UPS doesn't get a dime from me.
