The national headquarters for the Girls Scouts of America is a brand new huge building in my city. I have wondered for a long time how such a "humble" group could afford such an expensive looking place. Now, I'm convinced that they are being bankrolled by monied leftist groups.
It'll be a snowy day in July before their cookies enter my home again.
Thanks for the post.
American Heritage Girls sounds like a great alternative, but they still don't have a troop in my neck of the woods. (Middle Nowhere, PA)
What I see happening is a movement back through the eons to worshipping a fertility symbol, the earth mother, primitive, whorey, egotistical, anti-God, nasty, idolatrous, by um - modern? enlightened? people.
Here is what is completely wrong with this! Why would a lesbian wish to address a convention for youth (Girl Scouts). In publicly representing herself as a lesbian, she is informing the world that she desires sex with other women. So why does she need to be involved with the youth convention which is a program for minors?
I didn't have a very high opinion of the Girl Scouts in the first place. This further lowers my opinion.
As contrasted to the Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts seem to be more interested in selling cookies to bankroll their organization than they are in the outdoor skills and activities that girls should be engaging themselves in. Now it would appear that they're using their organization to promote a feminist political agenda. That's their right. But it's also the right of parents to decline to allow their daughters to participate in the organization. And it's also everyones right to not buy their cookies, Which aren't very good anyway.
This AHG sounds like a better alternative. I think the "Y" has an alternate organization as well. (Camp Fire Girls?)
My wife (I helped as a registered GS myself) had a GS troop for 10 years. Saw our girls (including my daughter) go from Brownies to Seniors. By that time, the late 90s, GS (and our regional counsel, to a lesser degree) had become so politically correct it was pretty bad. Got involved with another troop as co-leader two years ago and just couldn't take it. GS has become just plain disgusting in many ways. It is very sad. Most of the tasks I did in helping the troop over the years are banned now. Men are all treated as being potential molesters and rapists. And not too subtly, either.
A friend and GS volunteer and leader for 17 years was kicked out of scouting. Her crime? At the camp, she was smoking in the properly designated area for adults to do this. Unknown to her a girl had snuck out there and saw her smoking. She was booted out of scouts after 17 years of service! Left a sour taste her her mouth I can tell you.
The left has really trashed a fine organization. I am amazed the Boy Souts have done as well as they have in resisting. The wackos corrupted GS from within, and since they haven't been able to do that with BS, they are attacking them legally from without.
Of course, she wants to make heterophobia and homosexism mandatory.
It's not the thin mints?
Seriously, I am stunned at the direction the Girl Scouts have taken.
Amazing... while the Boy Scouts continued to get pilloried, the Girl Scouts are now promoting lesbianism, and pro-choice stances with these speakers. How absolutely sad.
And this folks is why the left does not oppose the girl scouts.
Sign your kids up for Awana or something else.
OK... The "Girl Scouts" are hereby added to my list of organizations that I'll have absolutely NOTHING to do with.
I hated the Brownies for my year in them. Unfortunately, my daughter is due to be one this year because 99% of the girls in her class in her (Catholic) school belong to one troop. I was not going to let her join, but my ex decided that it was a sign of my bad parenting (he wants to get 50/50 custody so he can stop paying his meager child support) that I kept her away from the other girls like that. Grrrrrrr. I am hoping since the troop is girls from the Catholic school and led by one of the moms that it is kept insulated from the BS.
The Catholic Elementary school where my son attended seemed to have a decently organized Girl Scout troop. He was in the Cub Scout counterpart based out of that Church and, as was already mentioned, was completely immersed in what I would call traditional American values, family and social.
Even so I found it was a good idea to be present at the parents meetings if only to hear of the upcoming proposed (read changeable) events.
Very sad to read about the shifting values of the Girl Scouts.
Thanks for posting this!
**the shifting values of the Girl Scouts.**
Why my children were all in Camp Fire!
In other words, they've been Oprahfied.
brainwashing at it's finest (or rather, ugliest). Their trick is to catch them early and get them to believe whatever they want. that must be why I've seen so many young girls (12, 13 or so) thinking their lesbians
No credit due to myself, I dropped out of Brownies after one year. That was in 1971.
Although it wasn't as "PC" back then as it is now, we still were able to do some fun things like cook outs, wild flower collections, ect...things related to the outdoors.
(ha, I didn't even know what "PC" meant then, but I had a suspicion of what didn't seem right)...
I knew it was time to go. I did more "outdoor" things with my family and learned more from my dad than anything the Brownies or Girl Scouts could teach in the short, few years left he had on earth with us then.
Very sad to hear they went feminazi.
No more Girl Scout cookies ping
If you want on/off the ping list let me and little jeremiah know.
Proving once again that gays do not procreate, they recruit.
I don't know, but the changes has been explicitly portrayed on the cookie box graphics for many years now. Especially the "narcissistic devotion to self".
I have greatly curtailed my cookie buying, but I still have to have a box or two of those Samoas.
Truth will come out in the end.
Presuming that Lesbians/Gays are born that way which is what the homosexual agendists would want us to believe, sooner or later these brain washed girl scouts, who werent really born that way will come to the realization that they have the same needs and desires that normal, non brainwashed heterosexual women have. The problem is, will they be able to function in society.
I am truly amazed that Democracy survives in America with the likes of the Communists in the Democrat party, the Liberal agendas being taught in the schools, the open borders and the state of terrorism, the IRS and the Federal reserve system sucking money out of the producers, the anti-G@d group trying to remove all references from America while Muslim children are allowed to pray in school, the Girl Scouts, et al
How utterly and blatantly hypocritical! Try this:
'No must ALSO be the answer to - to proselytizing all who are not homosexuals into some form of sexual deviency involving same-sex partners.'
Anybody else catch that?
Very sad to have to let go of what was once a noble transaction to now what needs to be a serious boycott.
I never even thought of that till now.
Makes you appreciate the tenacity of why the Boy Scouts held so tightly to their traditional values...once you let evil in it spreads like the plague.
In case you've never read this, here's an article worth bookmarking for future reference ......
Don't these girls have enough to deal with with their gym teachers?
I want my daughters to be a Girl Scouts but this prevents me.
Is Dr. Cole the chair of the Board of United Way of America????
"Has anyone heard of a group commited to filling the void that the Girl scouts left?"
Some Girl Scout leaders have become alarmed by the organizations leftward leanings and have decided to do something about it. In 1995, Patti Garibay, a former Girl Scout troop leader, founded the Cincinnati, Ohio-based American Heritage Girls (AHG), which now has troops in 32 states.
I was in the Cub Scouts for a few years, but eventually moved on as well. (I wanted to join the Girl Scouts, but alas, to no avail.)
I just saw their web site. There are only two troops in Illinois. I expect to see that grow.
Bump. To. The. Top.
Everyone needs to know the truth about the Girl Scouts, and that there are alternatives.
I did a Google search and found some information on a Catholic alternative called "The Little Flowers" Girls Club. It sounds nice... (my own daughter's too old for it at this point!) It may be worth checking out.
The below website looks like a location to order materials (programs, badges, etc.) for The Little Flowers:
Thank you for the research! Like you, my daughter is too old for Girl Scouts but I have copied Barnacle who also posted this information. Perhaps the two of you can begin to spread this to others. Bless you both!
Thanks for the research and pings.
And wouldn't you know it, in my parish bulletin today (Ste. Marie's in NH) there's an announcement for a Little Flowers Club here! It's just starting up!
Why don't you start a troop in your part of the country? You only two girls.
Two years ago, hubby and I decided we would not buy any more girl scout cookies. Near the end of cookie-selling season, a neighbor child came to our door selling the remainder of her boxes. Hubby, forgetting our ban, bought the rest of the girl's thin mints and something else. We opened them, ate them, and within one day, we had the worst virus we'd had in years. That cured our craving for girl scout cookies.
If you must know, my health (or lack thereof) doesn't permit it. In June my doctor informed me that I have a terminal illness, and if I'm very lucky and careful I might have a couple more years, but they're not going to be very active years.
