Atlanta based shipping giant UPS says it’s Foundation will no longer give grants to the Boy Scouts of America after an online petition gathered 80,000 signatures protesting the BSA for excluding homosexuals from being scout leaders.
A spokeswoman for UPS says all groups will have to comply to the same standards UPS does. The company does not discriminate against anyone based on race, religion, disability or sexual orientation.
I could be missing something here but, if UPS does not discriminate against religion, why are they discriminating against the Boy Scouts religious beliefs?
I have nothing against a person being homosexual, but for myself I would not want my young son/daughter under their influence anymore than I would leave my son/daughter in the care of a pimp or pedophile.
So let’s be honest — Everyone discriminates. Everyone. So stop giving discrimination a bad name.
To discriminate means you have set a certain criteria in your life. I don’t hang out with drug dealers, porn stars, thieves or terrorist. Am I discriminating? You darn right I am.
Companies discriminate all the time. If you don’t have the type of degree they require, you will not be considered for the job. That’s discrimination.
Would you hire a blind person to teach Art or Driver’s ED?
There are different things that people can and cannot do, and there are others that because of who they are or what they do, have limited their options.
Everyone has the right to make their own choices in life. You cannot force someone to agree with your lifestyle anymore than you can force someone to love you.
But I have to question ????? Why would you want to push yourself on someone who didn’t want you? I would think anyone should have more pride in themselves than to try and force their opinion or lifestyle on others where it is neither wanted or appreciated.
