"I'm sick to think that an organization as illustrious as the Girl Scouts would make a decision based on one person's political agenda,"
Don't any of these clones ever make a statement that isn't focus-group tested?

The Girl Scout council in Maryland owned a fabulous camp not far from Baltimore.
A few years ago, the organization decided to sell the camp, take the cash, and buy a new office building!
Nonprofit organizations are often run for the aggrandizement of their professional leadership rather than for the publicly stated purpose.
Professional leadership in nonprofits usually has a horizontal background (across other nonprofits)
rather than a vertical background (ie. within the Girl Scout organization).
Leadership is committed to "Nonprofit Professional Management" rather than the particular organization's public goals.
The Professionals can even pervert an organizations goals.
The Girl Scouts, at least nationally, have embraced the L think and have thus avoided the confrontation that the Boy Scout battle.
The last camp fire may have been the torching of principal as well as the girl's cabins.
