Every Christian Should Boycott UPS


One of the reasons this country is going downhill so fast is that conservatives and Christians continue to support organizations that are hostile to our values.

Take UPS, for example.

Its decision to publicly attack one of the finest organizations in America, the Boy Scouts, for putting kids first and staying true to its Christian principles by refusing to admit homosexual members tells you that this is not an organization that is friendly to Christian values.

The philanthropic arm of shipping giant UPS said it will no longer give money to the Boy Scouts of America as long as the group discriminates against gays, the second major corporation to recently strip funding from the scouts.

The UPS Foundation made the change Thursday after an online petition protesting its annual grants to the Boy Scouts attracted more than 80,000 signatures. UPS, based in Atlanta, follows computer chip maker Intel in withdrawing corporate support for the Boy Scouts.

UPS spokeswoman Kristen Petrella said groups applying for the foundation grants will have to adhere to the same standards UPS does by not discriminating against anyone based on race, religion, disability or sexual orientation.

“We promote an environment of diversity and inclusion,” Petrella said Monday. “UPS is a company that does the right things for the right reasons.”

Certainly, UPS doesn’t have to give the Boy Scouts any money, but when it wants to make sure that everyone knows that it doesn’t support the single best youth organization in America because that group is trying to adhere to traditional values, Christians shouldn’t support that. Use the Post Office, use FedEx, but don’t keep giving your money to companies that hold people like you in contempt.
