Major League Soccer (MLS) has ended its partnership with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and it may or may not be based on the BSA's reaffirmed stance opposing homosexuality.
Decide for yourself after the jump!
MLS kept it brief, simply stating:
"Major League Soccer’s agreement with the Boy Scouts of America expires at the end of the 2012 season and MLS does not intend the renew the agreement for a variety of business reasons."
Of course, the timing of this decision is notable because it was announced on Friday, June 20, just days after the BSA's secret committee concluded their two-year review of their anti-gay policy and decided to stick with it.
The partnership between MLS and the BSA began in January of this year.
Outsports notes that Major League Soccer has previously reached out to the gay community and partnered with gay rights groups, so maybe the Boy Scouts of America's discriminatory policies simply aren't in line with MLS's principles.
What do you think, Instincters? Is Major League Soccer ending their relationship with the BSA based on their anti-gay stance?
