Why do dioceses and parishes continue to support Girl Scouts? October 15, 2010

Present day Girl Scouts USA are not the organization many of us knew in our youth. They have been taken over by a radical feminist agenda that includes close ties to Planned Parenthood, pushing a very graphic form of sex education (including demonstrations on how to use forms of artificial contraception), increasing signs of a blatant pro-abort outlook, and growing connections to covens of wiccans?  Why do Girl Scouts continue to find homes in so many Catholic parishes?  Several dioceses/archdioceses have already severed ties with the Girl Scouts and denied them use of diocesan facilities.

Particularly distressing is the number of parishes in the Diocese of Dallas that encourage Girl Scouts and provide space for them and their meetings.  I’m sure that individual troops may be fine and do much good, but should any Catholic Church entity have a relationship with this increasingly anti-Catholic organization?

The link you have in the article with the words “not the organization many of us knew in our youth.” doesn’t go to an article/blog/relevant information. I would be interested in whatever you have to post as I am working w/people at a parish who wish to NOT see their parish sponsor a GS troop and they need more concrete evidence than what I’ve been able to pull together.

There is an extra “http//” after the initial “http://” at the beginning of the link. Remove that and it should work fine.

I would recommend this very recent article from Life Issues Institute:

I questioned someone about the girl scouts associated with out parish. She said that their groupd didn’t support planned parenthood. I’m sorry, if you support girl scouts then you support planned parenthood because money (and advertising) automatically goes to the corporate level.

There are several good Catholic (and christian) groups for girls. The link mentions American Heritage Girls. Little Flowers and Little Women’s Hospitality program are excellent as well.
