Walt Disney World tells Boy Scouts to allow openly gay leaders or lose funding

posted at 6:41 pm on March 5, 2014 by Dustin Siggins

A few days ago, Disney World announced that unless Boy Scouts of America (BSA) changed its policy on openly homosexual scoutmasters – namely, they’re not allowed – by January 1, 2015, the organization would lose funding from Walt Disney.

The reason is simple – Disney says BSA violates the company’s non-discrimination policy:

Disney does not give money directly to the national organization or local BSA councils. However, through its VoluntEARS program, Disney allows employees to do volunteer work in exchange for cash donations to the charities of their choice.

Employees taking part in the VoluntEARS program will no longer be able to submit the funds to the Boy Scouts, the organization said. The new policy will not affect Walt Disney employees who volunteer with the Scouts, the company said.

….

According to Disney’s charitable giving guidelines, groups become ineligible to receive Disney funding if they “discriminate in the provision of services unlawfully or in a manner inconsistent with Disney’s policies on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, national origin, age, marital status, mental or physical ability, or sexual orientation.”

Kudos to the homosexual activist lobby, which has managed to scare Disney into making this move. As a private organization, Disney is of course entitled to withhold money from whatever organizations it chooses to, even if that decision is unwise.

However, this leads to a question: Will Disney also take money from Girl Scouts USA, which does not allow male scout leaders? Discrimination is discrimination, after all, and those men who want to lead girls on scouting trips should be given the same opportunity as women.

It’s a silly question, but so is Disney’s position that not allowing men who have sexual attractions to men to lead boys on scout trips is unfair discrimination.

Then again, this is the same company that is accused of sending money to Planned Parenthood, as well as hiding animal abuse that takes place during filming of its movies, so policies inconsistent with Disney’s official child-friendly corporate theme are hardly unusual.

Principles or money?

Well, Disney chose MONEY years ago.

Someone needs to start pressuring the BSA to remove the phrase “morally straight” from the oath.

CurtZHP on March 5, 2014 at 6:46 PM

Why would the BSA ever take money from Walt Disney, a company the is the antithesis (gotta use those words before the SAT bans them) of everything the BSA stands for.

WryTrvllr on March 5, 2014 at 6:46 PM

The Scouts should tell Disney to stay in its fantasy world, and seek alternative funding.

OldEnglish on March 5, 2014 at 6:47 PM

WryTrvllr on March 5, 2014 at 6:47 PM

As long as the girl Scouts start letting heterosexual men take little girls camping..

melle1228 on March 5, 2014 at 6:48 PM

So, it goes against Disney’s corporate values.

But apparently sexualizing young girls isn’t against Disney corporate values.

It’s a silly question, but so is Disney’s position that not allowing men who have sexual attractions to men to lead boys on scout trips is unfair discrimination.

Bingo! Glad someone else gets this common sense position.

good question.

wait, aren’t “boy scouts” and “girl scouts” sexist? how come disney doesn’t just say “boy scouts and girl scouts should change their names and allow scouts and scoutmasters from both genders?”

oh wait, what i just said is intolerant. i should have said “all” genders.

KS Rex on March 5, 2014 at 6:50 PM

Disney was never for the children. It’s all about contracts, lawyers, real estate manipuulation, patents & copywrites (and sometimes stealing them)and money, money, money–and in the latter category foisting politically correct homosexuality onto children is ‘de rigueur’. BTW if Disney thought there was more money in lining up homosexuals and shooting them in the back of the neck, THAT would be their position.

MaiDee on March 5, 2014 at 6:50 PM

It’s only fair if Disney stops giving money to the Boy Scouts because of homos that they stop giving money to the Girl Scouts because they support baby killing.

reddevil on March 5, 2014 at 6:51 PM

they should go back to Disney and say, we will accept gay leaders if you will assume all liability for any problems that occur like what happened in the Catholic church with the priests.

Sadly, they won’t. They’ll bend over and grab their ankles (analogy very much intended), like they did when they voted to allow openly gay members. I have no idea who actually voted. I know they never asked me, but my son is no longer a scout, because I’ll not have him exposed to perverts.

CWchangedhisNicagain on March 5, 2014 at 7:10 PM

This is a pathetic, corrupt act by Disney.

Their right to apply their vast fortune to whatever as they chose, fine, but targeting the Boy Scouts as they have over this issue of homosexuality-denied-in-Scout-leaders is really, really, really creepy, downright profane in it’s lack of respect for the otherwise quite respectable Boy Scouts.

Disney today isn’t the place Walt Disney built. I’m ashamed to even read their name anywhere, any credit, after hearing this news about their insult to the Boy Scouts. Very, very disrespectful by Disney.

Anyway, for the more level-headed…Whatever Disney does, it does in order to preserve it’s economic bottom line. Want to boycott Disney? It’s your right. Frankly, the decision to allow gay scout leaders should rest with the BSA…not Disney or anyone else…just like their decision to allow openly gay scouts recently.

The Disney Company should not be dictating policy to Boy Scouts of America. That said, the company has the right to withhold contributions for whatever reason they deem. To myself, it does appear that the BSA has placed themselves in an untenable situation. Currently, the Boy Scouts now does allow openly homosexual teenagers to be members of their organization ………. however, does bar them from them being leaders when they reach adulthood. How does someone reconcile this position?

You’re right, CWchN, they don’t follow their own guidelines.

This is Disney discriminating in the name of non-discrimination. Very bitter discrimination by Disney.

This is ONE opportunity where conservative can strike back and drive the Disney scum out of business with their pocket books and send a message not only to Obama but the whole world, but like the RINOS in congress they will cave.

This is because Disney has them by the cojones through their children via non-stop propaganda. “Mommy, dadyy, I wanna go to Disney Land (Disney World)(. Booo hooo booo hooo.” and, because conservatives don’t follow their convictions the way liberals do,”for the children” they will relent and take their kids to Disney World, to disney movies and buy Disney products and lose yet another battle they could have won.

Lanceman on March 5, 2014 at 7:15 PM

This is the playbook that progressives use over and over again. They pressure an institution repeatedly to alter its traditional views, waiting for the inevitable ‘accommodations,’ and as a result of those accommodations the institution is hollowed out from the inside out, losing members with traditional values. They’ve done it with entire mainline Christian denominations, with the military, and with the Boy Scouts (which bent to the progressives’ will on allowing homosexual scouts). They know exactly what happens once they are able to get a toehold, because biblical Christians and traditionalists will leave these institutions in droves, leaving behind a husk of the former institution that only moves further and further left.

They Boy Scouts died when they decided to allow gay scouts. Most people already know that. Who cares what Disney does. I know I don’t. They’re out for money, and they’ll pander to the audience that makes the biggest stink, which is clearly homosexuals. There are Christian alternatives to the scouts. Avail yourself of them.

xNavigator on March 5, 2014 at 7:16 PM

ConstantineXI on March 5, 2014 at 7:13 PM

I don’t necessarily think that. I think you have a lot of gay Scouts who have come out of the closet who want to be leader, and then there is the other group. The group that wants to infiltrate any conservative/traditional organization an turn it gay friendly. The problem is that it doesn’t stop there. When groups splinter off because they don’t like the way the organization is going that that group gets targeted as well.

In reality, a large majority of gay scout leaders will not molest their scouts. But no, you’d rather deny ALL gay scouts leaders the joy of scouting…just to protect a relatively small percentage of straight boys. Sad.

Reading comprehension fail.

The point is that Disney has no problem funding the killing of babies but is outrageously outraged at a group that wants to let local troops bar gay members. So apparently to Disney killing babies is a lesser offense than discriminating against gays.

No, only reaching out to teenagers who believe themselves to be homosexual who are lost, anxious and depressed. My advice to such teenagers are to remain celibate and find a support group that will help you talk and determine if you think you are homosexual or not homosexual. There should be no guilt associated with being homosexual and in a long term committed relationship.

That other feebe that can’t capitalize, hagfish 2.0 can’t hold a candle to you. ;D

Walt Disney is rolling over in his grave after this garbage….you see one victory is never enough for militant gay activists. Getting boys to be openly gay in Boy Scouts was never enough. Baking cakes for same sex marriages won’t be enough. Getting married in churches won’t be enough. The final victory will be making it a hate crime to call homosexuality a sin.

It’s sad. The scouts used to be responsible organizations. The Boy Scouts have had enough trouble keeping perverts out and now they’re expected to open the door and invite them in. they should refuse to take money from any company that mandate such a thing. Socialists can’t stand having any organization that doesn’t have socialist”values”. Look out FFA and 4H.

What are you saying? Steve Egg wrote a thread topic just this morning.

Oh, I’ve been gone all day and must have missed it…

So, it goes against Disney’s corporate values.

But apparently sexualizing young girls isn’t against Disney corporate values.

Bingo!

If anyone knows the policies of the Boy Scout Organization, could they tell me what would happen if the Boy Scouts caved in to the
homosexual demands and allowed gay scout leaders? Are parents of
children in the program allowed to say “No way, I am pulling my kid out of that leader’s troop and am requesting a transfer to another group?” Just curious. We heterosexuals have to find a way
to fight back. I admit I don’t know how we do that.

In reality, a large majority of gay scout leaders will not molest their scouts. But no, you’d rather deny ALL gay scouts leaders the joy of scouting…just to protect a relatively small percentage of straight boys. Sad.

Frank Lib on March 5, 2014 at 7:17 PM

Meh, not only that, but to also protect those outside the “large majority of gay scouts” who would molest children.

This statement has still blown my mind. So based on your statement, you would rather sacrifice a small percentage of straight CHILDREN to feed the narcissistic need of some male ADULTS. Oye!

Good Lord…so as long as your beliefs align with liberal beliefs you’re ok, otherwise you’re to be outcasts, penalized, scorned, scolded, ridiculed, etc., etc., etc. Pitiful.

On the upside, you got listed. So there is that feather for your cap.

Kudos to the homosexual activist lobby, which has managed to scare Disney into making this move.

LOL! Disney is a pioneer in LGBT rights. It always has been. It was one of the first companies in America to offer benefits to the spouses of their employees in the 90s.

think Frank has the humor of Bishop. Just gonna take everyone a while to adjust.

Bitter Clinger on March 5, 2014 at 7:24 PM

Are you sure that was sarc, because I could see a lib saying that.

Nailed it.

GarandFan on March 5, 2014 at 7:25 PM

No, it’s a reflection on what and who the current entertainment industry is. Disney — AND it’s theme parks — are part of that ‘homosexual activist’ bunch, as are also other companies in the same business.

“It’s Ellen!” Fun, chipping costumes, games, gayness! That’s about where it’s gone, sadly.

I see someone is replying to their own posts again. QOTD should be fun tonight…

After putting up with the hagfish and all of his new socks, Lourdes is becoming strangely tolerable.
