A family advocate believes it’s time for people to tell United Parcel Service they don’t agree with its corporate decision to no longer support the Boy Scouts of America.
The UPS Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the shipping giant, says it will no longer donate to organizations that do not adhere to its “diversity policies,” which prohibit “harassment” against anyone based on race, sex, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, age, or religion. UPS announced this week it was responding to an online petition that garnered more than 80,000 signatures protesting the foundation’s annual grants to the Boy Scouts.
Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality tells OneNewsNow that people need to call UPS and object.
“They call it non-discrimination, but it effectively discriminates against organizations which have a moral creed or a faith creed that is against homosexuality,” he explains. “The Boy Scouts won their Supreme Court decision allowing them to live by their own moral code, but ever since then the gay lobby has sought to punish them in whatever way they can, calling them discriminatory, anti-gay, [and] bigoted.”
