From a news story received on November 14th, 2012:
ATLANTA – The UPS Foundation says it will no longer give grants to the Boy Scouts of America as long as the group excludes homosexuals from being scouts or scout leaders.
The philanthropic arm of the Atlanta-based shipping giant made the change after an online petition protesting the foundation’s annual grants to the Boy Scouts attracted more than 80,000 signatures. The UPS Foundation gave more than $85,000 to the Boy Scouts in 2011, according to its federal tax return.
A UPS spokeswoman says groups applying for the grants will have to adhere to the same standards UPS does. The company says it does not discriminate against anyone based on race, religion, disability or sexual orientation.
~Does the sheer and absolute hypocrisy of this scurrilous statement strike anyone else besides me? It is precisely their above stated policy that makes this company a complete liar, because they have just chosen to do exactly what they said they don’t (and not on only one, but on two out of the four facets they say they don’t): Discriminate against the Boy Scouts of America solely because of both the BSA’s “religion” AND “sexual orientation” – that they, the Boy Scouts of America, choose to be and stay and stand for God-defined, male-female, heterosexual relationships! UN–BELIEVABLE!
This is exactly the same, sheer insanity and double-standard hypocrisy as those people display who think that all Americans (and particularly the minority group known as Christian-Americans) are stupid and biblically uninformed enough (See John 8:31-32) not to instantly see through the utter transparency of their statements when they continually seek to shove down our throats that, “there is no such thing as absolute truth,” – and want us to accept their statement as – guess what – absolute truth! May I restate? UN–BELIEVABLE!
