Bank of America pulls Boy Scout funding

A reader sent me the following link earlier this week:

Boy Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind and – according to the Bank of America – discriminatory.

If you have heard of Valdosta, chances are it was because of the local high school football team’s prowess at winning national championships. But today, the overbearing effects of overactive liberalism reached far into South Georgia and slapped the Boy Scouts right across the face.

At a recent Valdosta Kiwanis Club meeting, the local Boy Scouts leader, Matt Hart, was present to accept a donation from the Club. Matt gladly accepted the contribution to help the local Boy Scouts spruce up their summer camp and then he told the Kiwanis Club the Scouts were grateful for the donation because the regular donation received each year from Bank of America had been denied this year because Bank of America believes the Boy Scouts national organization discriminates against gays.

In fact, Matt, the Executive Leader of the Alapaha Area Council for the Boy Scouts, shared with the group a recent letter he received from Bank of America Charitable Foundation explaining the denial:

The letter, in part, stated:

“…Under the non-discrimination policy, the Bank of America Charibale Foundation cannot provide funding to any organization that practices discrimination on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, secual orientation, age, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, or veteran or disability status. The Boy Scouts’ current employment and membership practices do not comply with this policy.”


“If the Alapaha Area Council, Boy Scouts of America has the autonomy to depart from the current discriminatory practices of the national organization, and will verify that fact in writing, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation may consider reviewing this request again.”

How much do you want to bet that the militant wing of the ‘gay movement’ had something to do with this?
