Recently, David E. Fullmer (Forum, Jan. 9) recited the Scout oath (he incorrectly referred to it as a law), and then launched into a disgusting, fictional gay sexual oath in an inflammatory attempt to defame, insult and create hatred and intolerance.

Mr. Fullmer illustrates the reason that corporations all over America are finding it necessary to enact strict anti-discrimination policies.Corporate donations and sponsorships to any organizations are "gifts," and as such, not "owed," and may be withdrawn at will. Mr. Fullmer needs to identify and deal with the sources of his anger and homophobia before attempting to support the Boy Scouts or have any influence whatsoever with our young boys.
