I just retired after 40+ years with one of the countries/worlds largest defense contractors. About a year ago my co-worker was on the computer checking his email when he said come look at this. It was a Corporate memo which said and I'm paraphrasing a little but in essence it said "we will no longer be hiring from BYU because their stance on LGBTQ issues does not fit in with our company values". A week or so later we tried to find the memo but it had been deleted from the archive. Interestingly about that same time period one of the new VP's at our division was a BYU graduate, whether that had anything to do with the memo quietly going away I don't know. There have been plenty of reasons given for why the Boy Scouts was dropped by the church and others but the truth of the matter is the Boy Scouts was killed by corporate America. Corporate America has shifted from being generally family oriented and supporting conservative values to being quite liberal, especially Big Tech and they are getting more politically involved. Too me that is one of the greatest threats if not the biggest threat in the country right now because when you have control over jobs and peoples livelihoods you hold the ultimate influence and power.
