Walt Disney World Stops Supporting Boy Scouts Over LGBT Discrimination
UPI ^ | Thursday, February 27, 2014 | Kris Guiliani

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.

SNIP

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.

 Walt Disney World 

Entertainment, shopping, and charitable choices seem to be oddly self-winnowing since about, ohhhhh, 2008ish.

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?
A cause?
No.
An agenda.

Sad.

Folks ought consider some stock portfolio updating.
Do it for the children.. not to them.

He did his best to keep kids pure (Mouseketeers) and even tried to keep Annette from wearing a an exposed navel bathingsuit.

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.

As a young lad, I had a truly wonderful time in Disneyland roughly 1960. I have no desire to take the grandkiddies there (but I will show them Mickey Mouse Club dvds.)

I just read that it now costs $100 dollars for a one day adult pass at Disney.
I have a good idea why and who they are trying to keep out but I also must ask Is Disney practicing discrimination over poor people wanting to visit their park?

The left always combines their stock portfolios when they are boycotting a business. They like to do institutional boycotting such as union money or some other large cache of money. We should do that do so that they will feel the punch.

What would be some traditional organization that could move their money from the sodomy supporting businesses? Do church groups go to Disney together? Do Christian colleges invest in stocks? Are there Christian investing groups?

That's okay. It's gonna cost 400 clams now just to get into The Magic Kingdom for hubby, wifey and two kids over 7.

So let Disney turn their parks into the Snow Lavender Kingdom.....and everyone stay away for a couple years. Let's see how the Disney profit and loss ledger will look then.

As a joke and to make a point Christians should show up at the doors of these pro-sodomy businesses dressed as transexuals—men dressed as women, women dressed as men. This would make a great show on youtube.

Welcome to the future.

I have to laugh. Did the BSA really think this thing would be finished by letting in openly homosexual Scouts?

Everyone knew it was just the first bite of the apple.....

I keep saying people of all over 18 ages and the older and more out of shape the better...should start dressing in full Bondage leather and latex at work and suing everyone that complains. It’s a hate crime by the current legal definition. They were born that way after all.

Seriously.

No surprize here. Just took 1 year ...

2/01/2013 – George Kalogridis became the 1st openly homosexual president of Walt Disney World Resort, where he’ll oversee ~ 66,000 employees. Kalogridis began working at Disney World back in 1971, busing tables; then 17, he was hired before the park’s official opening. Now 59, Kalogridis has put in time as President of Disneyland in Anaheim, CA and Chief Operating Officer of Disneyland Resort Paris. Disney World is the world’s most-visited entertainment resort, featuring 4 theme parks, 2 water parks, 24,000 hotel rooms, 3,000 time-share suites, a 120-acre retail complex and a 230-acre sports campus. Kalogridis plans to make Disney World his home, both literally and figuratively. He and his partner of 12 years, Andy Hardy, are building their own little castle in Golden Oak, the luxury subdivision that Disney World is developing on the northeastern corner of its 40-square mile property.

Disney went to hell with Walt died.

Walt Disney was a devout Congregationalist Christian.

Walt Disney was a conservative Republican, and very anti-communism. He took a strong anti-pornography stance for films. He would roll over in his grave if he knew how sodomites had taken over his company.

BSA made their bed when they decided to pursue the corporate dollar and were then made dependent upon the crack that is “easy money” because they expanded their “professional” ranks.

But there were strings attached, positions on the National Board...influence from corporations pursuing the politically correct dogma of the day, influencing the program down to it’s lowest level...

And here, ladies and gentlemen, is the result of an organization compromising it’s values through poor management and leadership...for money.

The BSA is reaping the whirlwind of what they have sown...unfortunately, the boys are the ones who are made to pay the price of adults acting stupidly, as is almost always the case.
