Did you READ the article I gave you? You are not responding to it at all....just more fluffy comments. Broken record.

Not only did I read it, I communicated my concerns to GS in my Council and GSUSA, because I manage over 400 girls in more than 20 troops, half of whom are in troops at our local Catholic parish, as is half of my own troop and my own daughter.

The answer straight from GIRL SCOUT HQ IS


We are a federated organization

The Councils are free to make their own relationships and partnerships, as part of the United Way and other nonprofit community participants.

Nation's Capitol and Baltimore Councils, which is where cookie money that does not go direct to the troops stays, HAVE NO TIES TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD. NONE. NADA. ZIP.

Furthermore, we GS Troops and Councils don't make donations. We receive them.

The priest in the parish cited in the article was obviously confused if quoted correctly, because “WAGGGS” (World Associationof Girl Scouts and Girl Guides) is the international Scouting organzation based in London. Yes, we are members of the international organization of 145 countires that have GS and GG.

But so is Boy Scouts a member of a World Scouting Organization that embraces homosexuals and mixed sex troops, unlike BSUSA.

The international scouting organizations for boys and for girls are very liberal, dominated by europeans and growing 3rd worlders (surprise), and heavily tied to the United Nations agenda.

Mostly, I and every other leader I know....ignores them, and mostly ignores National too.

Maybe they get $2 of our $12 annual GSUSA membership fee.
One final fluffy ill-informed comment from me. Did you know England has more girls joined in Boy Scouts (now just called Scouts) than it does boys? It ain't Robert Baden-Powell's Boy Scouts ay more.
