Bob Morris, Indiana lawmaker and crazy-man, on the Girl ScoutsPosted: February 20, 2012
Meet Bob Morris. He is a Republican in the Indiana legislature representing Fort Wayne. He is also crazy and/or stupid. Rep. Morris recently did some internet searches relating to the Girl Scouts, and found out that they are more or less responsible for creating a vast army of communist, gay, oversexualized abortion providers. I will allow Mr. Morris to speak for himself–the following excerpts come from a letter the representative sent to fellow Republicans that I accessed through the website of the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette.
This past week I was asked to sign a House Resolution recognizing the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts of America. After talking to some well-informed constituents, I did a small amount of web-based research, and what I found is disturbing. The Girl Scouts of America and their worldwide partner, World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), have entered into a close strategic affiliation with Planned Parenthood.
At least he admits that he based this ridiculous letter solely on the results of “a small amount of web-based research.” And for the record, that Planned Parenthood connection doesn’t even exist.
Denver Auxiliary Bishop James D. Conley of Denver last year warned parents that “membership in the Girl Scouts could carry the danger of making their daughters more receptive to the pro-abortion agenda.”
Hmmm… One random religious guy in Denver? Good sourcing.
A Girl Scouts of America training program last year used the Planned Parenthood sex education pamphlet “Happy, Healthy, and Hot.” The pamphlet instructs young girls not to think of sex as “just about vaginal or anal intercourse.” “There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!” it states. Although individual Girl Scout troops are not forced to follow this curriculum, many do. Liberal progressive troop-leaders will indoctrinate the girls in their troop according to the principles of Planned Parenthood, making Bishop Conley’s warning true.
A single training program used a single Planned Parenthood pamphlet, OH MY GOD! And it says sexy things? Man, this really reinforces that thing that one religious guy in Denver said. (See Loop, Feedback.)
Many parents are abandoning the Girl Scouts because they promote homosexual lifestyles.
Many parents are doing many things, this seems pretty poorly sourced as well.
World Net Daily, in a May 2009 article, states that Girl Scout Troops are no longer allowed to pray or sing traditional Christmas Carols.
Ah! Finally, a well sourced citation! Of course one needn’t look very far to realize that World Net Daily might be a less than reputable source. The current top story on their website: “State warned Obama fails ballot requirements ‘Both of candidates’ parents must be U.S. citizens at time of candidate’s birth'”
Boys who decide to claim a “transgender” or cross-dressing life-style are permitted to become a member of a Girl Scout troop, performing crafts with the girls and participate in overnight and camping activities – just like any real girl.
All kidding aside for a moment, this one is true. And I am proud of the Girl Scouts for their supportive and accepting approach in dealing with children.
The fact that the Honorary President of Girl Scouts of America is Michelle Obama, and the Obama’s are radically pro-abortion and vigorously support the agenda of Planned Parenthood, should give each of us reason to pause before our individual or collective endorsement of the organization.
Oh right, those Obamas, using that honorary role to convert millions of girls to their radical agenda. As a proud resident of West Branch, I must insert here that Lou Henry Hoover was at one point the National President of the Girl Scouts. Would this help assuage Rep. Morris, or would he be in the Amity Shales ‘Hoover prolonged the depression with his meddling’ camp? Tough question…
Well, Mr. Morris, whatever is concerned conservative father to do? Is there any ridiculous conservative group to counteract the entirely mainstream and worthwhile Girl Scouts of America? Of course there is!
I have two daughters who have been active in the Girl Scouts of Limberlost Council in Northeastern Indiana. Now that I am aware of the influence of Planned Parenthood within GSA and other surprisingly radical policies of GSA, my two daughters will instead become active in American Heritage Girls Little Flowers organization. In this traditional group they will learn about values and principles that will not confuse their conservative Hoosier upbringing.
