Hate group has bad priorities when it comes to the Boy Scouts

The Family Research Council can't help itself when it comes to smearing gays. Maybe it's a clinical thing.

In this particular scenario, the organization is not exactly happy that UPS has decided not to donate to the Boy Scouts due to its policy of not allowing gays to be members.  According to FRC, UPS is punishing the Boy Scouts because the organization is supposedly trying to keep boys safe from pedophiles:
 
What UPS and other corporations refuse to acknowledge is that the Scouts' policy isn't a matter of intolerance--but security. After hundreds of cases of child sex abuse plagued the organization, the BSA tried to create a membership criteria in the best interest of kids' safety and parents' rights. Over the years, the Boy Scouts have paid millions--possibly hundreds of millions--to boys victimized by same-sex predators. And the financial toll was nothing compared to the emotional trauma of these children, whose lives are forever scarred by those encounters. For more than 100 years, the Scouts have focused on instilling character and leadership into America's boys. They aren't about to compromise that mission just to placate liberal companies and activists. 

Note what FRC says here - "same sex predators," i.e. making the inaccurate point that a man who molests a boy should be automatically considered as gay. 

And the sad thing about what FRC did? Other than blaming gays for the situation with the Boy Scouts, this organization has made no comment on the scandal created when it was learned that the Boy Scouts has been shielding potential pedophiles for decades, even after barring gays to be members or serve in leadership positions..

Why is FRC even defending the Boy Scouts at all?

Certified SPLC hate groups have no credibility to say anything. Too bad the SPLC hasn't certified the RCC yet.

They are backing the BSA just like they support the Catholic Church. Both orgs don't want gays and both are hiding pedifiles. They want to believe that we are one in the same. The question I have is if they don't have gays as members then why does the problem of child sex abuse continue?
Because being gay does NOT mean you are a child molester. It is a circle that they don't want broken because it will disprove their belief.

Let's not forget that this excuse falls apart when we think that the BSA prohibition against atheists also violates UPS's non-discrimination policies and would equally be a reason to remove funding. Would FRC say that the BSA is being punished for trying to protect kids from non-belief as well?
