Posted on 02/27/2014 4:43:17 PM PST by kristinn
Walt Disney World has jumped on the bandwagon of businesses pulling their funding from Boy Scouts of America, as the organization still refuses to end its ban on openly LGBT adults.
Charitable contributions will no longer be made to BSA or local troops as part of Walt Disney World's "Ears For You" grant program.
As the straight son of a lesbian couple, Wahls has been working to reverse the BSA's policies of discrimination and exclusion. Since its inception in 2012, Scouts for Equality has succeeded in influencing seven major corporations - including Lockheed Martin, Caterpillar, Major League Soccer, Merck, Intel, UPS and now Walt Disney World -- to end their sponsorship.

Says a lot about the democrats doesn’t it?
Considered BRAVE, COURAGES AND AN INSPIRATION TO US ALL.......ABC good morning America
Entertainment, shopping, and charitable choices seem to be oddly self-winnowing since about, ohhhhh, 2008ish.
NAMBLA & other DemocRats will be very proud of Disney.
THIS after they opened the door to homo’s!? Give the left an inch, they take you a mile. A pox on Disney and a pox on the BSA.
It's never enough with these people.
I continue to be shocked at the direction that our country has taken in the last ten years or so. The last six years have ben almost beyond belief.
Walt would be sick at this.

Comsumer contributions will no longer be made to Disney Theme Parks or Disney Movie Tickets as part of Boy Scouts’s “Up Yours” boycott program.
Did Disney World forget who the new BSA boss was?
I remember the days when Walt Disney wouldn’t even let hippies into Disney world. Now Disney regularly promotes drug addled whores and sodomy for the kids. Walt isn’t just spinning in his grave, he’s doing warp factor 10 now. Amazing how libs can infect something once so innocent like Disney. Bambi to Miley Cyrus, Snow White to Britney Spears. Scout day to sodomy day.
Methinks the modern-day equivalent of a Spartan spirit and drive doth live on in the corporate boardrooms of this land.
Corporate warriors cramming it to those who prefer an innocent path of life.. for what?
Folks ought consider some stock portfolio updating.
Do it for the children.. not to them.
More corporatism on display. They’re out of the shadows now.
Not too good for international business, I think.
Why should they worry? The same idiots that make excuses for NOT removing their sons from the BSA will send those same kids to DizzyWorld anyway.
While CEO of Walt Disney in 2009, Iger earned total compensation of $29,028,362, which included a base salary of $2,038,462, a cash bonus of $9,260,000, stock awards of $6,336,509 and option awards of $8,308,647. Iger earned a $13.5 million bonus in 2010, which was a 45.4% increase from 2009. He made $34.3M in 2013, with his cash bonus down 14.7% from the previous year.
Annette the rebel wore it anyway in the Beach Blanket movies.
Where will it end?
And there is no such thing as a “son of two lesbians”. These people are insane and I am sick to death of them. Who is pushing these corporations to do this? If homosexuals are no more than 3% of the population, how did they get so much power? Christians are a majority and we can’t get Brewer to protect businesses from having to kiss their a**es.
