Eagle Scout Zach Wahls: 'UPS showed true bravery' when it cut funding to the Boy Scouts

A statement from Eagle Scout Zach Wahls, founder of Scouts for Equality, via Change.org:

“UPS showed true bravery today in standing with the 80,000 Americans, including thousands of Scouts and Scout leaders, who oppose the Boy Scouts’ hurtful anti-gay policy. That bravery is what Scouting is all about,” said Wahls. “Corporate America gets it better than most: policies that discriminate aren’t simply wrong, they're bad for business and they're hurting the Scouting community. You would think that after all the Boy Scouts have lost as a result of this policy, they would understand that.”
