Disney Divests from Boy Scouts

It’s a small world after all, which is why word travels fast when you maintain anti-gay policies. Walt Disney Co. will not be donating at all to the Boy Scouts of America in 2015 because of the group’s rule banning gay leaders. Before the decision, Disney had provided small grants to local troops and donated money to the Scouts in exchange for its employees’ volunteer hours with the group. “We believe every child deserves the opportunity to be a part of the scouting experience and we are disappointed in this,” said Boy Scouts spokesman Deron Smith.
