Skip to comments.Walt Disney World Stops Supporting Boy Scouts Over LGBT Discrimination
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.
it’s a sodomite world, after all...
or a muslim world
anyone else has no rights that will be respected.
Disney is on the down side of the hill and gaining speed toward self destruction.
And the compromisers thought letting gay scouts in would end the furor. So, so naïve.
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.)
Not naive at all. Complicit and duplicitous. As is every other lesser evil proponent.
Pedophilia is a sexual orientation.
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?
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.
I agree about the higher. I’m talking about the locals.
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.
Celebrate homosexuality or go to jail. Get with the program Kristinn.
So am I. Without their active help or indifference, none of it could have happened at all.
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.....
Eagle Scout 1969
BSA Scouter 2001-2011
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.
Not those around me. They really thought it would end once they showed they were open minded.
And so they are responsible.
No doubt about that
The BSA can shove it. Disney, too.
Let ‘em all rot.
Guess that does it for the wife and I ever returning to Disney.
And their movies.
Hey Disney, how about a new movie, “Pluto packs fudge”?
No to BSA
Yes to BFA
2/01/2013 George Kalogridis became the 1st openly homosexual president of Walt Disney World Resort, where hell oversee ~ 66,000 employees. Kalogridis began working at Disney World back in 1971, busing tables; then 17, he was hired before the parks 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 worlds 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.
See what happens when you give in. You end up alienating your supporters, and those for pushed for change, it still isn’t enough....then you’re left with no support at all.
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.
