UPS Joins Intel in Boycotting the Boy Scouts

Just days after Intel announced it would no longer be giving corporate donations to the Boy Scouts of America because of their discriminatory nature, UPS is saying no to them as well:

“UPS showed true bravery today in standing with the 80,000 Americans, including thousands of Scouts and Scout leaders, who oppose the Boy Scouts’ hurtful anti-gay policy,” [founder of Scouts for Equality Zach] Wahls said in a statement. “That bravery is what Scouting is all about,. Corporate America gets it better than most: policies that discriminate aren’t simply wrong, they’re bad for business and they’re hurting the Scouting community.

UPS gave $150,000 to the Scouts in 2010.

They’ll be giving nothing to the Scouts this year.

When will the BSA learn that discriminating against gays and atheists is just bad policy for a group that’s supposed to be for all boys?
