Activist Groups Urge Obama to Reject Boy Scout Honor
From Fox News:
Activist groups, including Scouting for All, urge President Obama not to accept the honorary Presidency of the Boy Scouts of America until they stop discriminating.

Dear Sir or Madam:
I am writing to you regarding your company's financial support of the Boy Scouts of America. While I commend you
for generously supporting nonprofit organizations, your support of the BSA disappoints me.
The Boy Scouts' blatant discrimination against gay youth and adults, as well as atheists, proliferates hate and
intolerance; two things which need no financial assistance to thrive. The BSA discriminates against many of <Company
Name>'s own employees, and their children. Their policies also hurt your customers. Therefore, I ask <Company
Name> to take the moral
high ground and join Levi Strauss and Company, J.P. Morgan, American Airlines, Wells Fargo, Medtronic, and the
many other corporate leaders supporting equality for all.
I ask your company to discontinue its funding of all organizations that discriminate on the basis of age, political
affiliation, race, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation or religious beliefs (including the BSA).
I hope <Company Name> shares my belief that discrimination, in any form, is unacceptable.
Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.
<Your Name Here>
