Shame on UPS for giving into the Liberal bullies in our society.

The BSAs decisions have had an effect on youth also - We saw that large youth group vote against the BSAs position on gays.

"Unfortunately, this decision will have a direct impact on the youth we serve ..." You know what else has a direct impact on the youth that you serve? A policy that blatantly discriminates against some members of our society.

UPS's lack of continued funding to the Boy Scouts of America will impact the youth of America, but discriminating against people won't? Silly logic from a tired organization.

I now know an organization that I will leave my assets to in my will. The Boy Scouts of America are a great organization.

"Unfortunately, this decision will have a direct impact on the youth we serve ..." So, I guess that would be unlike the impact on boys who had been sexually abused, and the facts and histories of the abusers have been hidden since the 1950s?

The Scouts are one of the few organizations that actually stand for something...refreshing in this environment of liberal do-good political correctness. I applaud the Scouts for their position and I will give generously to the Boy Scouts when they come calling for donations or fundraisers.

As a former Eagle Scout, I have no use for the Boy Scouts as an organization. At least the Viking Council in the Twin Cities ignores the organization's ban, but still too much small-mindedness and it's just not needed. And it's not just with gays either, it's also their attitude toward atheists and agnostics I find distasteful.

fuzz 48 I will try to respond. The Trib makes it difficult to note negative items pertaining to the GLBT community. About all I can say is the boy scouts have their current policy in order to reduce the abuse of boys.
