Lockheed Martin shoots down the Boy Scouts

It seems military defense contractor Lockheed Martin is taking a cue from the anti-Christian rhetoric of the U.S. military. The company has announced it is pulling support of the Boy Scouts over their ban on gay scout leaders.

According to a story in the Marietta (GA) Daily Journal, Lockheed spokesman Johnny Witaker said the withdrawal of support "includes all company monetary contributions and company-sponsored employee activities with the Scouts like facility tours, on-site Scouting activities and events, service on the Atlanta Council’s executive board and employee volunteer activities on company time.”

Lockheed also announced the disapprove of the Boy Scouts' ban on atheists as Scout Leaders.
