This past Monday the United Way of the Capital Region met with representatives from the New Birth of Freedom Council, which oversees Boy Scouts in Dauphin, Cumberland, Perry, York and Adams counties and serves 11,400 Scouts. If the United Way decides against the Boy Scouts it will mean a loss of $85,000 annually. Why does the United Way of the Capital Region feel compelled to question the funding of the New Birth of Freedom Council? Because of their ban on homosexual leaders and members and the national BSA’s reaffirmation of that ban on July 17th has brought the issue to the forefront. The United Way of the Capital Region has added “sexual orientation” to their policies and they no longer fund organizations which “discriminate” against homosexuals.
