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.

Where did the phrase “sex by eight or it’s too late” come from? – WryTrvllr on March 5, 2014 at 7:51 PM

Never heard of such a phrase. Can you tell me when it came into being? Was the person who coined the phrase straight or gay? ……………… My guess is that it was Roman Polanski, if anyone. Last time I checked he was straight.

I don’t believe in SSM and I don’t like the way the gay lobby is trying to shape this country.

But you’ve written your story here before and it touches me every time. I can’t help but respect and admire the way you have lived your life. I think you are right. The over sexualizing(sp?) of society is no good for anyone. The truly spiritual is becoming a rare thing. Our country has been dragged through the gutter by the 1970s sexual liberators/pornographers. I don’t blame this generation. They are the product of those who should have known better.

Now that the Catholic church is no longer a safe haven for homosexual pedophiles I guess Disney is counting on the Boy Scouts to provide one.

They changed their policy regarding homosexuals but not regarding pedophiles, unless I missed something. The Venn Diagram of “homosexuals” and “pedophiles” does have some overlap but it’s not that the former implies the latter.

And we haven’t even gotten to the heterosexual pedophiles yet.

alchemist19 on March 5, 2014 at 8:42 PM

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.

There are leftists who like the idea of eliminating age-of-consent laws.
Sex with anyone or anything you want, whenever you want.

Also, homosexual scout leaders would obviously recruit kids into their perverse lifestyle.
They view that as a plus.

So Disney & their ilk don’t mind an increased risk of kids getting molested.
Just like they don’t mind kids getting killed in abortion mills.
Their agenda is what matters most to them.

itsnotaboutme on March 5, 2014 at 8:43 PM

The leader of a Christian alternative to Boy Scouts that does not allow gays said the group was “horrified” when news organizations published a photo from one of its meetings in Texas that appeared to show a group of children giving the Nazi “Seig Heil” salute. John Stemberger, the chairman of the board for Trail Life USA, told Business Insider he initially saw the picture in a story that was published on MSN on Saturday.

“We were horrified when we saw the photo in question on the MSN site and immediately investigated the situation,” Stemberger said in a statement Monday. “This is what we learned. … Many Boy Scout Troops have a tradition of ending their troop meetings with the boys gathering in a circle and then singing the song ‘Taps’ which is a slow ceremonial piece of music played or sung at the end of the day. The Boy Scouts that do this closing ceremony start singing the song with their hands raised straight into the air with the scout sign and then gradually lower their hands till they get to the end of the song when hands are at their side. This longstanding Boy Scout tradition was being followed with this Texas Trail Life troop using the Trail Life sign.”
Yes, note the false statement that Trail Life “does not allow gays,” as opposed to its police of excluding those — straight or gay — who oppose the doctrines advocated by the organization. A thin red line, but that line is real, as demonstrated throughout the Boy Scouts controversy.
Back to the photo and its cutline.
By the publication date for that San Jose Mercury News report — the story to which Grossman originally linked — it appears that copy editors knew enough to produce this improved cutline:
In this Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014 photo, Trail Life members move their arms as they sing “Taps” in a circle during a meeting in North Richland Hills, Texas. Trail Life USA, the new Christian-based alternative to the Boy Scouts of America, excludes openly gay members. (LM Otero/AP)

So the arms of the Trail Life members are moving, but there is no way for the reader to know that just by looking at the photo.

Yep and it’s subtly brilliant on their part. I we would never expect them to execute a push that will take years to happen with constant pushback in order to get close to kids that will in the end leave a small paranoid minority watching every move you make on edge for anything that could even be construed as improper when they could have just lied about their sexual orientation or gone to the playground or whatever it is that heterosexual pedophiles do to find their victims. The plan the homosexuals concocted was so overcomplicated and so stupid that they probably thought there was no way they would ever suspect it. But we’re too smart for ‘em!!!

alchemist19 on March 5, 2014 at 8:58 PM

Only someone without kids could make that statement.

You’ve never checked a State sexual predator database, have you?

This isn’t about cub scouts. It’s about Boy scouts. It’s the same age group LGB activists have been targeting on several fronts through school policies.

It’s not about molestation, it’s about introducing abnormal behavior as normal during the formative years of adolescence. You don’t have to touch a Scout, you just need to fog the issue of sexuality by proclaiming LGB is biologically normal, when it’s not.

As I stated in another thread, you guys have won. Marriage will be the law of the land thanks to legislating from the bench.

You’ll also have exclusive control of most traditional organizations soon. I mean once you’re let in wont it also be homophobic not to put you in charge?

You should be enjoying you’re many victories and the victories that will surely follow. You should, in short, stop pushing people. But of course you won’t.

As to the scouts: they will be a shadow of their former selves; which is of course what you desire.

But your average run-of-the mill Christian child will not be hurt by this. My kids play sports & have never shown an interest in the scouts. But they know all about the outdoors & how to handle weapons because I have taught them. Both my boys AND my girls. And parents from stable homes who have children interested in scouts will now forego the scouts and teach the kids themselves.

This only hurts inner city kids & kids without fathers. You should take a bow.

I mean lets be honest. What is the percentage of the population who are gay. I’ll be generous and say 5%. Now half it to 2.5 for men only.

Out of that 2.5% how many gay men really want to be involved in the things that scouts do? And be honest.

The Hillbuzz guy had a great article on how an acceptable compromise would be to let lesbians be scout leaders and gays be Girl Scout leaders. It was made sense and was humorous as well. I’ll try & find it & post a link but I’m not a tech guy so I wouldn’t hold my breath.

Statistically, homosexuals are far more likely to be pedophiles than heterosexuals are.

itsnotaboutme on March 5, 2014 at 8:44 PM

Pedophiles, whichever sex they are attracted to, are thankfully an extremely tiny subset of the population. An adult gay man is about as likely to molest your son as an adult straight man is to molest your daughter.

alchemist19 on March 5, 2014 at 8:58 PM

And great white attacks are VERY infrequent in bathtubs. That was one incredibly disingenuous statistic. If Itsnotaboutme can quote a source, than you must work for the NYT.

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

“openly gay” I don’t have a (huge) problem with, but “openly flaming obnoxiously in-your-face gay” I would.

Dr. ZhivBlago on March 5, 2014 at 10:12 PM

frank has like 8 daughters, boy, and he don’t want ‘em corrupted by homosexuals.

Lanceman on March 5, 2014 at 9:26 PM

And you can’t blame him. If you start hanging around with homosexuals and get to know them you start to figure out that they’re okay people even if they do have one thing about them that’s different, then before you know it you’re hanging out and are actually friends, then what with the way things are going in this country they’ll all be getting married and then next thing you know you’re invited to the wedding and you don’t want to be rude or cause a scene so you say yes then you look at the wedding registry and it’s all brands and stores that you’ve never even heard of where they would probably not even let you in the door in jeans and a t-shirt so you dress up a bit to go shopping and the prices of everything they register for are so darn expensive that it’s going to send you to the poor house just to get them a gift. It’s terrible! What father would want his daughter to go to the poor house? It’s almost a moral obligation that they should be protected from such a thing.

Trail Life USA, let the sodomites ruin what’s left of the BSA and pray for the poor kids and their parents stuck in it because they are close to completion of the program.

I’ve not heard of “Trail Life USA” before this, so they’re totally new to me.

However, I am somewhat familiar with the Royal Rangers.

The Royal Rangers are what the BSA used to be.

Homosexuality isn’t some kind of uplifting religion worthy of praise by Jesus, Siddhartha, Mohammed, et al. Now, I will say that if that’s the way they are, then that’s the way they are. But I don’t have to be around them if they make me feel uncomfortable, and pretending to be comfortable in order to be PC is condescending and petty.

If I found out my kid’s heterosexual scout master liked to be tied up and spanked by “Mistress” Judy or whomever, or have his diapers changed by a prostitute dressed up like a Candy Striper, my kid would no longer be in that pack.

Dr. ZhivBlago on March 5, 2014 at 10:24 PM

Yep. And one of the top three execs was the founder of the Gay/Straight/Whatever alliance that backs Dan Savage and whatnot.

Disney is prog central.

budfox on March 5, 2014 at 9:28 PM

I didn’t know that! That explains a few things, like why Disney has decided to introduce a gay couple on the kids’ TV show ‘Good Luck Charlie.’ I did some searching and it appears that the ‘Executive VP of Global Communications at Disney/ABC Television Group’ is a man named Kevin Brockman, who is now on the board of something called GLSEN ( Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network).

Prog central is right.

Homosexuals ARE generally fine people (here comes the “qualifier”) as long as they are NOT promoting homosexuality, or flaunting their own state of homosexuality.
I have worked with them, and it doesn’t bother me one bit, knowing that they are ‘homosexual’.

Once they begin demanding that society openly accept their homosexuality as a valid, legitimate, alternate state of “normal”, then the trouble starts.
BTW … I’ve never had any of the ones I’ve worked with conduct themselves in such a manner. They were good co-workers on the job.
We knew they were ‘gay’. They knew we knew . . . . . everybody knew.
Every once in a while, there’d be some friendly teasing between hetero and homo about it, but only between guys who’d known each other a long time.
If that’s how homosexuality were handled today by both sides, I really don’t believe there would be any of this ‘political strife’ over it.

listens2glenn on March 5, 2014 at 10:36 PM

http://www.health.harvard.edu/newsletters/Harvard_Mental_Health_Letter/2010/July/pessimism-about-pedophilia

Than there’s this one.

I guess the pessimistic part must be in what they were forced to do with categorizing. Read this part

There is more agreement on other issues. Nearly all people with pedophilic tendencies are male. Studies of child molesters have reported that only 1% to 6% of perpetrators are female. Co-occurring disorders, such as personality disorders or mood disorders, are common in people with pedophilic tendencies. And about 50% to 70% of people with pedophilic tendencies are also diagnosed with another paraphilia, such as exhibitionism, voyeurism, or sadism.

Consensus now exists that pedophilia is a distinct sexual orientation, not something that develops in someone who is homosexual or heterosexual. Some people with pedophilic urges are also attracted to adults, and may act only on the latter urges. Because people with pedophilic urges tend to be attracted to children of a particular gender, they are sometimes described in the literature as heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual pedophiles. Roughly 9% to 40% of pedophiles are homosexual in their orientation toward children — but that is not the same as saying they are homosexual. Homosexual adults are no more likely than heterosexuals to abuse children.

Get that? They’re pedophiles, NOT homosexuals. By the way, who, anymore, claims 9-40% of the population is homosexual? To be intellectually honest, that last sentence SHOULD read “Homosexual adults, who are not pedophiles, with the same modifier for heteros.

WryTrvllr on March 5, 2014 at 10:44 PM

“Homosexual adults, who are not pedophiles, etc…….” and use that same modifier for the heteros.

WryTrvllr on March 5, 2014 at 10:47 PM

So, SC, getting back to your question, a homosexual in a STABLE relationship with a consenting adult, isn’t the issue here. And not likely a threat to anyone’s kids.

My answer remains NO. To your specific question. Thanks for taking the time to address mine.

Thank you Cindy Munford.

WryTrvllr on March 5, 2014 at 10:54 PM

Just take your kids out of scouts. They are like religion to gays. The movement never wanted to coexist with people of faith, they want to punish and destroy them. Same with scouting. They won’t be happy until it’s completely bowed to their demands.

hawkdriver on March 5, 2014 at 10:57 PM

If you are a family of faith and you’re looking for a substitute for scouting, AWANA is prime for filling that void. The children in AWANA we taught were begging for more camping, scouting type activities.

I actually agree with a lot of this (here comes the qualifier :) ), but I’m not sure what you mean about promoting or flaunting their lifestyle. If you say you don’t want to see two women making out in public then I’ll agree with that, but then again I don’t want to see a heterosexual couple doing that either.

My nephew has two years left. His troop is a charter of homeschoolers. They are no longer taking any new scouts, and the troop will disband as soon as they can get the older kids to Eagle. I enjoyed the heck out of scouting when I was a kid. It was innocent and edifying.
