UPS Pulls Plug on Boy Scouts

How did UPS become brown? This offers a clue:

After the July announcement that the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) would uphold its ban on homosexual scout leaders, corporate supporters have come out swinging. Computer giant Intel was the first to pull its support. Now, Georgia-based UPS is following suit. After years of generosity, UPS (whose policies are 100% aligned with the homosexual movement) said it was pulling the BSA’s funding because its non-discrimination policy doesn’t match UPS’s. In a statement, UPS executives announced that they would “cease all future funding to the Boy Scouts until gay Scout leaders are welcome within the organization.”

Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. What UPS and other corporations refuse to acknowledge is that the Scouts’ policy isn’t a matter of intolerance — but security. After hundreds of cases of child sex abuse plagued the organization, the BSA tried to create a membership criteria in the best interest of kids’ safety and parents’ rights. Over the years, the Boy Scouts have paid millions — possibly hundreds of millions — to boys victimized by same-sex predators. And the financial toll was nothing compared to the emotional trauma of these children, whose lives are forever scarred by those encounters. For more than 100 years, the Scouts have focused on instilling character and leadership into America’s boys. They aren’t about to compromise that mission just to placate liberal companies and activists.

Sending children out in the woods with open homosexuals who bully their way into scout master positions also entails the risk of them being forcibly infected with AIDS. But that is a small price to pay for UPS’s reputation for impeccable political correctness.

Use FedEx.

    I fear the Boy Scouts will go the way the military did with DADT policy. I was member of the Scouts and also a Member of the US Army. But I will not be asking my son to follow in my footsteps. Their are alternatives to Scouts, our church has youth programs and a friend of mine, his church offers its own scouting type program. We as conservatives and those with morals will just have to adjust to the new prog reality, and change the game. Through our churches and communities much like we did with home schooling. We have to start and fight back covertly in our own homes and churches and neighborhoods . Staying off the radar screen.

    Being 74 years old, I was around when the Scout homosexual scandal was food for ridicule. The Scouts drove them out, where they then slithered over to the Catholic church in America.

    Hmm, Liberal values. Children molested, BAAAD. Taking measure to prevent that, ALSO BAD. The scouts have rules in effect that an adult can never be in a one on one situation with a boy. I have scoutmaster conferences with my scouts, “one on one” noo more than 15 feet from the rest of the troop. The scouts will outlive this, and God Bless them!

    If a religious employer was forced to provide contraception to his employees, it’s fascism.
    When a private company opts out of supporting an organization that does not support the value system the company it’s also fascism.

    Because that company isn’t allowed to have an opinion – or use it’s money to support the things that company likes.

    “Cooperations are people my friend!” Unless of course they are liberal…

    The cancer that is liberism continues to infect everything we hold sacred in this once great country.

  • StanInTexas

    TruthBeTold, interesting how your “that company isn’t allowed to have an opinion” does not apply to politics.

    UPS can support or not support anyone they choose. They can even be hypocritical and claim to not discriminate based on “religion” while they punish the Boy Scouts for their religious position. And we on the right are free to criticize and boycott UPS for business practices that we disagree with.

    And where were you when Chick-Fil-A offered an opinion on marriage? Was their company allowed to have an opinion?

    Used to use UPS for my at-home biz, since they were the best game in town; then they added the fuel surcharge, and then the residential delivery surcharge, and then what seemed like weekly rate increases. USPS started in with the flat rate shipping, discounted online postage with free tracking, free packing materials, and free package pickup – blows UPS out of the water.

    Try it, you’ll like it.

    UPS is the slowest way to move anything on earth, how they stay in business is a wonder anyway.

    What can brown do for you? Well it can get on your d!@k if your Homosexual.

  • Dr. 9

    Here’s a word, and very effective idea, for the American people. BOYCOTT! Put them out of business for punishing others who dare stand by their convictions and opinions. This very effective tactic can change our world, but it takes strength, courage, and the will to stand together. Meaning that, generally speaking, the American sheeple are incapable of doing it.

    Political correctness is a far greater threat to our freedom and liberty than is terrorism…

  • IslandLifer

    An extremely important program for anyone’s son. I’m glad they put more safety measures in place to keep the filth out. There is no reason to think they’ll cave, it would be the end of the organization. I don’t donate $ to charities because I’ve seen how they operate. I will donate my $ and time to a local troop or council. Never did like using UPS, even when I worked for them.

    Why are they expending so much time, energy, and finances just to be near young boys?

    What makes you think UPS’s decision not to support the scouts is Fascism? Has anyone here expressed that opinion?

    From http://www.econlib.org/library/Enc/Fascism.html
    Where socialism sought totalitarian control of a society’s economic processes through direct state operation of the means of production, fascism sought that control indirectly, through domination of nominally private owners. Where socialism nationalized property explicitly, fascism did so implicitly, by requiring owners to use their property in the “national interest”—that is, as the autocratic authority conceived it.

    Governmental control of private business is the essence of Fascism. That is exactly what ObamaCare does.

    BTW, UPS can put their contribution dollars wherever they wish. In many respects, USPS seems to do as good a job delivering packages on time as UPS and that’s saying something.

  • St. Gilbert

    @TruthBeTold –

    I humbly suggest that you look for truth outside of the religion of Liberalism. It’s not that Liberalism contains no truth, but Liberalism’s truths are half-truths, which are more dangerous than its actual lies. Half-truths disguise the lies. They are the enemy within which is much harder to see than the enemy without. Honestly examine Liberalism for its truths. Then please search elsewhere for the fullness of truth. You’ll be a happier and more accurate teller of truth.

    Actually UPS has been doing a good job delivering my packages and if we’re true conservatives we know they have a right to set their own company policies.

    But as a consumer I have the right to not use their services, and in fact, tell others why I will not.

    So I have copied Dave’s well-written thread and am going to send it to all my eMail contacts as well as at least 100 churches, I’m going to take it to the only UPS facility in our town and give it to the manager, I’m going to write FedEx and explain why I’m switching my business to them (so they won’t cave), I’m going to send letters and eMails to both eBay and Amazon asking them to insure I have USPS options and I’m going to tell them why, and I’m going to ask every UPS driver I see, “What’s the deal?”

    A drop in the bucket maybe, but there just might be a lot of buckets.

    Plus I’m going to make a strong statement using IslandLifer’s link.

    By the way everyone, the pen is mightier than the sword.

    Or as I like to phrase it, ink can do more for a militia than gunpowder.

  • IslandLifer

    I apologize for the above link. It came back as unknown address. I had to use the customer service email found at their home page. Maybe someone else has better luck finding the corporate email.

    Well after calling they said there wasn’t a corporate email. Physical addy is:

    I behind you 100% Alpha, I will do the same.

    Fed-Ex all the way! UPS can suck it…..oh wait. They would like that.

  • Alphamail

    Interesting little follow-up on the UPS.

    Seems as though UPS likes La Raza and other hate (oops, I mean diversity) groups, as much as they dislike the Boy Scouts.
