UPS drops support of Boy Scouts over LGBT discrimination

GLAAD is reporting that the Boy Scouts  will no longer be getting grants from shipping giant UPS due to their anti-gay policies. 

UPS has posted this statement on their website:

The UPS Foundation seeks to support organizations that are in alignment with our focus areas, guidelines, and non-discrimination policy. UPS and The UPS Foundation do not discriminate against any person or organization with regard to categories protected by applicable law, as well as other categories protected by UPS and The UPS Foundation in our own policies. These include, but are not limited to race, gender, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran or military status, pregnancy, age and religion.

In 2010, UPS gave $167,000 to Boy Scouts USA.
