Some politicians entangled in this too! Maybe we can unelect them.
Good for them. I wish more Catholics, including Catholic politicians, would actually be taught, believe and stand up for what the Church teaches, rather than work for the opposite.
Woo Hoo! BUMP!

Subject Line: Girls Inc. support and ultimate loss of business
Dear Mr. or Mz xxx,
How did your company make such a gross business miscalculation? Im sure youll stand your ground and make public statements to the effect it has not had a negative impact on your business. But it will. You know it will take some time to show up in your bottom line.
Actually Id like to thank you for your side by side stand with Girls Inc. It has allowed me to reopen a dialogue with my three daughters. Each daughter has several of your dolls.
They have all three decided to ceremoniously throw them away. Not sell, them not give them away but to destroy them.
Here are the demographics.
Daughter #1 Honor student (freshman) at xxx University studying to be an elementary teacher.
Daughter #2 National Merit Scholar and a senior in High School. Being courted by Ivy League Universities.
Daughter #3 Freshman in high school and right on their heels academically.
They all three find your monetary and public support of abortion and lesbian sexual orientation as unacceptable. They feel you are now directly responsible for great harm to females in general.
Enough said. Look for your products in trash cans throughout the United States and elsewhere. What an INCREDIBLE blunder on your part. Whoever made this marketing decision needs to be canned. Your company will suffer because of it.
My City, My State
Oooh rah! I love that kind of talk.
Especially when it is backed up with actions.
Good for Father Malloy. Well said.
BTW, yesterday was our daughter's 10th birthday. On previous birthdays, we had given her gifts from AG. Not this year.
And Christmas isn't looking very likely, either.
Moral Absolutes/Homosexual Agenda Two-fer Ping.
Good news on this thread, with lots of contact info for those who want to support those who done good and criticize those who done bad.
Those who done good need our support!
American Girls presents itself (from what I've seen at friends' houses quite some time ago) as a wholesome, traditional values type of company. The fact that it supports an organzation promoting abortion, contraception and lesbian sex for teenagers needs to be publicized!
Freepmail me if you want on/off the M.A. pinglist, and me AND DirtyHarryY2K if you want on/off the H.A. pinglist.
Bless you, Father!
Father Malloy, you are my hero of the week.
Excellent! I hope as word spreads that more people will protest the decisions by American Girl. I've been following this story, but this is the first time that I have read that Girls, Inc. isthe former Girls Club of America. This is extremely disappointing.
As I recall the KKK sponsored a highway cleanup program in Georgia a few years ago. Would AG donate money to the KKK and then take umbrage at the outcry because the money was to be used just for road beautification? Same difference.
FWIW, Fr. Malloy is a straight arrow--and says Mass exactly the way it's written in the Missal.
Also a military chaplain in the Reserves.
