Walt Disney World Ends Its Support Of Boy Scouts Over Ban On LGBT Leaders!

walt disney ends its support of boy scouts over ban on lgbt leaders

Walt Disney World is taking a stand!

A stand against the Boy Scouts of America!

The controversial group's refusal to end its ban on openly LGBT boy scout leaders kind of negates its decision to end the ban on openly gay youth.

After all, what are you teaching kids when you tell them to pour their heart and soul into something only until they're 18 years old, and then they're shunned by the organization that they'd loved so much? Doesn't make much sense to us.

And apparently Walt Disney World feels the same way because they are NOT going to keep going with their Ears to You program, which would match charitable donations to an organization that any of their employee's volunteered at. This used to include the Boy Scouts, but that is no longer the case!

Here's what the Central Florida Council’s board president wrote:

"We recognize that many Scout Units have received financial support over the last several years from this grant opportunity and are sad to see it go. The National BSA Council has reached out to WDW to try to resolve the situation, however, according to WDW, their views do not currently align with the BSA and they are choosing to discontinue this level of support. We will continue to keep an open line of communication with them, but at this time, are unable to reverse their decision."

And although Scouts For Equality co-founder Zach Wahls is sad to see the Scouts lose money, in the end he thinks Disney made the right call. He said in a statement:

“We’re never happy to see Scouting suffer as a result of the BSA’s anti-gay policy, but Disney made the right decision to withhold support until Scouting is fully inclusive. Scouts for Equality will continue to advocate for a fully inclusive membership policy, to help build a stronger Scouting community that is eligible for the support of Corporate America.”

Disney has always been maintained no form of harassment or discrimination against people no matter what, so this move makes sense.

Our only question is what took them so long?!

    SHAYGIRL1309- shut up! you are on a gay man's (yeah he is annoying, but so what) blog calling gays "homo's" and women "skanks"…get lost…You get a charge out of bullying in secret? You are a coward! The hate has to stop and Disney does NOT want ignorant people like you visiting there anyway…the world is changing…gays and lesbians are the LEAST of the world's problems- it is people like YOU- full of hate and judgement that teach our kids to hate…which leads to violence and discrimination!

    Re: StraightAgenda – the "extreme gay agenda"…what are you talking about? You are so ignorant…gays and lesbians wanting equal rights and equal treatment and NO hate is not "extreme". Get an eduation, get some evolved thought and stop with your hate. People are KILLED in this world because they are gay…people lose JOBS in certain areas because they are gay…and you are PART OF THAT problem…so ignorant…stop living in fear and open your eyes…people are people. Get out of your small town where everyone is like you and live life with evolved thought…

    It is of no surprise to me that the statement released by the Boy Scouts was worded the way it was. Of course they are going to say " We are unable to revers their decision". Well that about says it all. Let's discriminate against people who have devoted a huge portion of their lives to our organization, and then when we loose funding and strong relationships with a company over it we will twist our words and put it on them. Yeah sure Boy Scouts that's the big problem here right you couldn't get them to reverse their decision. I can't believe they had the nerve to actually release a statement saying that! Let's just call it like it is, and instead of hiding behind Disney and putting it on them lay it all out. You wouldn't change your mind, and your discrimination of gays in your organization. How about you go ahead and reverse your antiquated views and decision about your policies on gay leaders in your organization! It is typical of bigots though too place the blame on everyone and everything but where it belongs. On them!

    seems I hit a nerve. The Girl Scouts are now headed up by dykes but so far the Boy Scouts are standing strong. Disney is for skanks and homos. Don't take your kids there.

    Business especially a big business like Disney shoudd stay out of politics. I have not been do Disneyworld, only Disneyland but their tickets are like $92-95 for a one day adult ticket and they no longer give AAA discount, cheapskates.
