OPEN LETTER TO UNITED PARCEL SERVICE
Recently, it was reported that UPS has effectively ceased funding the Boy Scouts of America due to lobbying by a coalition led by a young “gay rights” advocate. Apparently, he convinced your corporation that the B.S.A. is unjustly discriminating by not allowing overt homosexuals to serve as role models (leaders) or members.
Americans for Truth deems this a prudent policy which discriminates only indirectly-and that against behavior. Why should any youth-serving organization allow leaders to model behavior that is unnatural, immoral, and extremely unhealthy? Since 1980, 317,000 (updated estimate) men who’ve had sex with men (MSM) have died of HIV/AIDS. Of the 1.2 million Americans infected with the disease, 532,000 are MSM. Twenty percent of Manhattan’s 20-year-old homosexuals will be HIV/AIDS positive by age 30. Society must expend $24,000 per victim yearly for anti-viral drugs to keep him alive (while potentially infectious) for 20+ years. Ten billion per year is the cost of male-on-male sex. The Scouts would be irresponsible to allow such a lifestyle to be even implicitly affirmed in its ranks.
