The United Way of the Bluegrass (central Kentucky area) has just suspended $96,000 in annual funding to the Boy Scouts of America’s Blue Grass Council. The decision was made because of the Boy Scouts’ national policy of not allowing homosexuals to serve as adult leaders.
This is not the first time the United Way has been on the wrong side of a moral issue. Back in the late 1980s or early 1990s, the United Way gave money to at least one group that provides abortions. When I got word of this, I called United Way to protest against money given to charity being used to end the life of tiny humans. The response I got was, “It’s legal.”
Be careful where your charitable contributions go. Do some research. Don’t be involved with groups that don’t share your moral convictions. You do have other options. Find a better way.
