Don’t buy those Girl Scout cookies March 12, 2010

I’m sorry.  I really am.  I hate to be a meanie.  I know there are tons of nice parents, trying hard to raise their daughters in a crazy world, who have daughters in Girl Scouts, and they probably think it’s great.  They help their daughters in fund raising by selling Girl Scout cookies.  But if you’re a faithful Catholic, you shouldn’t be supporting Girl Scouts of America or the World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides.  They are not at all like the Boy Scouts of America, which has steadfastly remained tied to traditional, Christian values.  The Girl Scouts have come to associate themselves strongly with anti-life, pro child sex organizations.

Wow, that’s a strong statement, idn’t it?  Well, check this out.   That’s a pamphlet distributed by Planned Parenthood at a meeting hosted by the World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides at the UN this week.   At a panel discussion for ONLY those UNDER 18.  For children.  For children to have sex.  The brochure claims that:

“Many people think sex is just about vaginal or anal intercourse… But, there are lots of different ways to have sex and lots of different types of sex. There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!” The brochure goes on to encourage young people to “Improve your sex life by getting to know your own body. Play with yourself! Masturbation is a great way to find out more about your body and what you find sexually stimulating. Mix things up by using different kinds of touch from very soft to hard. Talk about or act out your fantasies. Talk dirty to them.”

Yes, uh……that’s right.  Take that dirty fantasy of yours and get it all worked up by……uhhh…….talking dirty to it.  That’ll teach it.  The sick thing this, this kind of thing goes on at the UN all the time, and was specifically intended for CHILDREN.  Do you want this kind of material being shown to your cute 8 year old girl with freckles on her nose?  I sure don’t. 

Good LORD!  First of all, this is yet another tie between Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood.  Such ties are deep, and extend down to local councils, where girls are often exposed to Planned Parenthood provided sex-ed literature and sometimes even tour PP clinics.  I guess to sort of train the next generation of clients, I don’t know. 

Read more at the link, it will make you want to throw up.  But that’s not all!   There is evidence that about 20% of local Girl Scout councils have some type of relationship with Planned Parenthood.   Down in Waco, the Bluebonnet Girl Scout Council was engaged for many years with Planned Parenthood to provide sex education at summer girl scout retreats, education that encouraged kids that any and all forms of sex is just great.  Straight, gay, fisting, swallowing…..it’s the perfect example of how the “if it feels good, do it” mentality has corrupted so much of our culture.

So, sorry, I can’t buy your girl scout cookies.  I will continue to pray that all local parishes, including many in our own diocese, will disassociate themselves from the organization.  Even if the local council isn’t tied up with Planned Parenthood, the money raised selling cookies does go back to the national organization and some of it will get to Planned Parenthood, one of Girl Scouts biggest partners.  I’m sorry, I’m not picking on you or your daughter, but a faithful Catholic just cannot support this. 

There is an alternative.  The American Heritage Girls engage in many of the same, good activities that Girl Scouts used to, but without the hideous accoutrements.

UPDATE: Another writer feels the same way.

UPDATE2:  And more coverage.   This last article makes  a very good point.  Why does Planned Parenthood work so hard to pimp their porn onto children?  They are trying very hard to create their next generation of clients.  By normalizing sex in the minds of these youngsters, the demonic Planned Parenthood knows that the kids will be more likely to be sexually active, and, kids being kids, will likely engage in such activity in a high risk way.  That will lead to more unintended pregnancies, more panicked kids and parents, and more abortions.  It’s a win all the way around for Planned Parenthood.  Hardly surprising for an organization founded by the racist, eugenic, bile spewing Margaret Sanger.
