Regarding Lockheed's decision not to support the Boy Scouts financially: Has it occurred to anyone but me that since they are a government contractor, they, along with other government groups, might have been told that they will no longer receive government contracts unless they follow the politically correct guidelines regarding diversity?

If that is the case, they had no choice but to comply.

As a private organization, the BSA should be free to make decisions on any matter without government interference.

I hold no animus toward homosexuals or any other group, but I do hold animus against the government for any attempt to regulate and control everyone’s speech, actions and even thoughts.
