Posted on 10/19/2010 9:51:34 AM PDT by Academiadotorg
Americans may still see the Girl Scouts of America (GSA) as an apolitical group but the groups leader has acknowledged a marked change in the GSA. Were not your mothers Girl Scout troup, GSA executive director Marty Evans has said.
In 1972, they dropped loyalty to their country from their oath in favor of I will do my best to be honest and fair, J. C. Willke writes in the October 2010 issue of the Life Issues Connector newsletter. In 1975 the first Catholic Archdiocese cut off all support for the Girl Scouts because of their sex-ed program.
During 1993, the Girl Scouts made God optional in the Girl Scout promise.
On my honor, I will try to serve God and my country, to help all people at all times, and to live by the Girl Scout law, the GSA manual still reads but goes on to advise, When reciting the Girl Scout Promise, it is okay to replace the word God with whatever word your spiritual beliefs dictate.
They still sell cookies, but here are some new badges to earn: domestic violence awareness, stress management, girl power and decisions for your life (teen pregnancy, etc.), Willke states. Lets note a few examples of these changes:
* In Pennsylvania, Junior Girl Scouts (age-12) can attend a workshop on puberty designed by Planned Parenthood to earn their becoming a teen badge.
* In Connecticut, Girl Scouts honored a Planned Parenthood official for promoting healthy practices in local troops.
* In Amarillo, TX, Girl Scouts have sponsored Planned Parenthood sex-ed seminars for 4th through 8th graders.

The Girl Scouts are nothing like the Boy Scouts.
In Cincinnati, they had MASTURBATION LESSONS until I called G. Gordon Liddy to look into it, and he got it shut down!!
Planned Parenthood International, earlier this year, said girls should learn to enjoy sex by age 10.
What makes you think it really ended? What about other places?
The nation has gone so insane that nobody should bother having kids (especially girls) unless they can raise them in a commune in near-total isolation from others.

when my girls were in scouts and i was a leader, i was not happy that the organization was disparaging stay-at-home moms. (which i was one, and so were the other leaders in our large troup).
the organization wanted leaders that were “working” women.
my question to them was, who do you think is doing most of the volunteer work? stay-at-home moms.
That wasn’t enough.
Anyone who teaches a 9 year old how to masturbate needs to be shot on sight.
Anyone who lets their daughter join is just asking for problems

Marty Evans is pathetic and I HATE PC/progressive crap! We HAVE to take back our country from these lunitics!
The safe schools czar wants to start in kindergarten these days
That’s the sex positive agenda as espoused by Planned Parenthood, SEICUS, Kinsey, Reich, and others. Seeking to see everyone sexually active and experimenting at every age. They see orgasm as a birthright to be enjoyed at every age.
They oppose abstinence as unhealthy (NOT because it doesn’t work but because it is contrary to their OWN amoral teaching).
And we are criticized for not allowing homos to get near our Boy Scouts!
My wife and a friend did girl scouts for our girls for a couple years, but the organization was so bad, they just got out.
American Heritage Girls was founded in 1995 in West Chester, Ohio by a group of parents wanting a wholesome program for their daughters. These parents were disillusioned with the increasing secular focus of existing organizations for girls. They wanted a Judeo-Christian focused organization for their daughters and believed that other parents were looking for the same for their daughters. This became the catalyst for the birth of the organization we have come to know as the American Heritage Girls.
It ended in that place....it may have started up someplace else later....I’m sure!
They also have a kind of sex education badge ..depending on the leader abortion could also get an approving nod..
I have one granddaughter in “brownies “ it worries me to death that she will stay with the scouts..
I’ve never heard of the girl scout oath. I just checked some old gs manuals and none of them mention an oath. There is a gs promise and as of the 1975 edition of the Cadette manual, it contained service to God, my country and mankind.
In Denver, Gold awards (top award, similar to Eagle in Boy Scouts) were given on more than one occation for 200 hrs of community service which pushed the gay / lesbian agenda into their school system. Further SCHOLARSHIPS were given to some of those girls.
Other girls who did their community service projects on a library reading program, food drives, etc also received the Gold but went lacking for any scholarship money.
My daughter got her silver award but after seeing that sad display has since dropped out of girl scouts.... with my support.
This is why I will not contribute money to them. I will not buy cookies and I feel very very sorry for the little girls I see because their mothers are too blind to see what a real woman and Girl Scout is. The Girl Scouts are a propaganda brainwashing club.
“In 1972, they dropped loyalty to their country from their oath in favor of ?I will do my best to be honest and fair,??
Code words and indoctrination for “social justice” aka marxism...
It either ended or it went stealth. You’d be surprised at what schools and stuff will do without telling parents.
my girls did daisy and brownies, they didn’t want to go on.
this was a decade ago. the badges for brownie and daisy weren’t objectionable then.
i did the cub/weeblo scout thing too. i enjoyed both of them, but my boys didn’t want to continue on. the leader was too boring they said.
i complained to our council. they said that’s what the organization wanted. we had our meetings at night so the parents that weren’t able to attend during the day, could come and observe or help.
Even if we ignore for a moment the babies that they have slaughtered, 10 year old children are being effectively molested by PP and the nation couldn’t care less. We have an organization so evil that it surpasses the Nazi propaganda in barbarity. What are Americans doing about it? Whining about petty discomforts! So much for the myth about the average person being “decent”. Everywhere I look there is nothing but filthy worthless cowards.
The baby boomer generation and my generation are the worst bucket of disease to ever infect the world. I’m hoping that the coming nuclear war will turn everyone sterile. That is the final hope...
You should worry every second about your granddaughter.
She is as good as dead.
Our troop is not like this. Both girls want to quit, but mom won’t let them. They prefer 4-H. The one thing I like about G.S. is that they sponsor a day at the University Hospital where the girls learn about medical careers. Youngest wants to be a surgeon.
I used to buy lots of their cookies because I thought it would help the kids. Now I feel really sick.
I just contributed to the corruption and death of innocents.
Somebody please kill me.
the unit my daughter was in during her year in brownies did nothing but make sit upons for an entire year
at the end of the year, they handed out a bunch of patches they never earned and the unit disbanded. When I wanted to help out several times, I was told that my help was NOT needed. over and over again.
outcome: my daughter was bored out of her mind and did not want to be part of the GSA again. I was lucky on that end.
If I remember right: On my honor, I will try, to do my duty, to God and my country. Something something every day, and to obey the girl scout laws. (girl scout in 1958-63.
Makes me glad that I have boys.
Our family left the GS last year because the kooky commie crap they were putting in their training materials: anti-gun, global warming, skinny-minnie dieting, you know the score. We went to a Christian girl’s organization, American Heritage Girls. We also homeschool, and there was an AHG group composed of mostly homeschoolers.
ACK ACK ACK ACK!!!
Girl Scouts are just an arm of the feminazi-lesbians now.
Do you know anything about Campfire Girls? I’ve heard they’re good too.
I don’t know much of anything about campfire girls. I thought they were just the younger version of girl scouts, don’t really know.
I know.. I have 7 children, that baby’s mom is my only liberal , non church goer.. so she does not even have a counter balance there.. poor baby
I will never have children. It’s bad enough knowing that most children will suffer horribly and have no hope. To then have to worry about your own is unbearable.
It is worth the time, money and effort.. even with the girl scouts :)
The women's movement stole the girl scouts.. and they are trying to clone themselves..
i also no longer buy girl scout cookies.. I will not give one penny to them
My other granddaughters went to a church based kids program ..seperated them by sex and age.. and had Christian moms and dads as the leaders..
I know that catholics have CYO for the older kids..may be time to adapt some of the kids programs that have been developed to that church and keep the girls safe..
The girl scouts is a recruiting program for liberated females ...
I was a camp fire leader in MY day.. I almost drove myself nuts trying to develop projects.. LOL
I was a wolf, bear, webelo leader, then I turned it over to my husband when they went to the troop.
I was up until June, the Registrar at the local Boy Scout Council. The best one they ever had. I was told that too.
I opened my daughter’s “Agents of Change” Girl Scouts manual to a photograph and bio of none other than Dolores Huerta. The GS are abandoning entirely the badge programming so that even our Conservative Christian leader will have no other programming to offer her scouts.
