United Ways Across the Country Need to Ask themselves: Would They Fund the BSA if The BSA Discriminated Against African American Youth and Adults or any other Group? If not then Why Should Any United Way Contribute to the Boy Scouts of America Who discriminate Against our Gay Children and Adults as well as Atheists

Summary:
This article begins by questioning if the United Way would financially support organizations that discriminate against racial minorites, and begs the question of why they should be expected to support organizations that discriminate based on sexuality.

After separating the issues of homosexuality from pedophilia, it goes on to inform the reader that homosexuality is not a choice - it is genetic.

Several United Way groups in the Fox Valley and also in Menomonie have said they will not condone such discrimination.

We are an education and advocacy organization reaching out to gay and nontheist youth and adults in our effort to get the Boy Scouts of America to rescind its exlusionary policy.
