Scouting is evil. This is proof!

That post was uncalled for.

Called for. Absolutely called for. Sometimes reality sucks. :-(

Frankly, someone needs to call the sheriff and report the crimes taking place in that building.

...Girl Scouts used to... be [a] good, solid, moral organization to which our children could belong. It seems that the Girl Scouts has decided that is not the path on which they wish to continue.

They've chosen the new path of "lesbian farming" in cooperation with planned parenthood.

What about the argument of "my daughter's troop is OK"?

I'm a Brownie Scout leader. Every troop is different, and you need to know your leaders well. As long as I'm involved, then I'm not very worried about what is going to happen to my daughters. I'm friends with the other leaders. They are both heterosexual moms still married to their husbands.

We have a nice troop. My girls are getting a lot of it socially. One of them has a severe speech problem, and she tends to be shy. This has been one way of getting her around other girls.

Although I think that anyone's opinion is fine when it comes to his/her own child, I would rather give the now 10.00 each that it takes for me (to be a leader) and my daughter to participate and give it to a worthwhile organization. There are many good groups out there that are not so liberal nor money grubbing. Let's just talk about the scholarships to the GS. If a child comes to my troop, GS will pay for her 10.00 registration. Most times the leaders will end up with a gift certificate from someplace that will cover her sash. Who covers the dues? The cost of the crafts? That same leader who has paid 10.00 to volunteer.
I wouldn't mind this if the GS had the values I do, but to supplement them for their liberal agenda? NO WAY.

I can fully appreciate your distaste at the topic, and the other freeper's comment.

But dicussing it here - in an effort to ultimately educate others of the depravity taking place in public schools on our dime, is necessary. The ruination of schoolchildren is the tragedy; and discussion of it is a necessity.

People have had their heads in the sand too long.

????

I was replying to YOUR comment about pitying people who are rendered uncomfortable looking at pornography meant for high school kids with her husband.

A comment with the word "pity" in it is ok for you, but not ok for me?
