Is Boy Scouts of
America breaking the law?

Scouting for All advocacy group calls for investigation of BSA tactics.

The Boy Scouts of America is possibly involved in unethical and illegal business practices, according to a press release Wednesday from Scouting for All, a nonprofit group trying to undo the BSA's ban on gay members.

The BSA claims it consists of two nonprofit corporations--the National Council, which operates the scouting program that bars gays and atheists, and Learning for Life Inc, which operates nondiscriminatory classroom and career programs. Learning for Life receives donations from the charitable organization United Way, which has many chapters that refuse to donate funds to the National Council because of its discriminatory policy. Scouting for All argues that there is no separation between the two BSA nonprofits and that donations to Learning for Life are funneled back to the National Council, therefore duping tolerant donors into giving money to an intolerant company.

Scouting for All viewed numerous public records that suggested the majority of revenues generated by Learning for Life Inc. are diverted into the accounts of the National Council.

Scouting for All is calling for a formal investigation of the BSA and also asking groups with antidiscrimination policies, such as the United Way, to stop donating to the BSA. (The Advocate)
