    A long simmering feud between the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts has broked out into the open with the decision by the Boy Scouts to accept females in their ranks. The controversial decision by the Boy Scouts includes a weak and confusing justification. Sacramento Bee: The Boy Scouts of America announced Wednesday that its board of directors had unanimously approved a decision to begin admitting girls into its Cub Scout program and to develop a program that will allow girls to eventually attain the rank of Eagle Scout for the first time ever. “This decision is true to the BSA’s mission and...
  • Girl Scouts Accuse Boy Scouts of Trying to Steal Away Girl Recruits

    The Girls Scouts of the United States of America is accusing the Boy Scouts of America of a "covert campaign to recruit girls into programs run by the Boy Scouts," according to a letter by the Girl Scouts' president. "We were disappointed in the lack of transparency as we learned that you are surreptitiously testing the appeal of a girls' offering to millennial parents," Girl Scouts President Kathy Hopinkah Hannan wrote in her letter to Boy Scouts President Randall Stephenson. "Furthermore, it is inherently dishonest to claim to be a single-gender organization while simultaneously endeavoring upon a coed model." Top...

    It sure is easy to get confused these days. One moment #Resistance against offensive politics and policies is brave. Bold. Daring. The next? That is crazy talk. At least thats the charge leveled when conservatives resist liberal policies, such as when the archbishop of Kansas City, Joseph Naumann, announced last week that the Archdiocese had decided to end its relationship with the Girl Scouts of America. As he put it: To follow Jesus and his Gospel will often require us to be counter-cultural. With the promotion by Girl Scouts USA (GSUSA) of programs and materials reflective of many of the...

    There's a new commandment for Catholics: Thou Shall Not Eat Tagalongs. The Archdiocese of Kansas City recently announced they are severing ties with the Girl Scouts. And that means no more Girl Scout cookies, too. Say goodbye to Thin Mints and Do-Si-Do's. The Washington Post reports that Catholics fear the Girl Scouts programs and materials are reflective of many of the troubling trends in our secular culture, and that the organization is no longer a compatible partner in helping us form young women with the virtues and values of the Gospel.So the Archdiocese is dumping the Girl Scouts (and their...

    ANDERSON COUNTY, SC Anderson County Sheriff's Office deputies say they are looking for a woman after money was stolen from a Girl Scout selling cookies at the Powdersville Walmart. According to a Sheriff's Office statement, at 2:15 p.m. Sunday a woman and her daughter were selling Girl Scout cookies outside the Walmart when the woman got out of a black Jeep, went to the vending machine behind the table where the cookies were being sold and asked if the sellers had a newer $1 bill.

    She made BANK by telling the truth. At only 11-years-old, Charlotte McCourt is going places. The Girl Scout from South Orange, New Jersey, wrote scathing reviews of the organization's cookies in hopes of scoring a big sale from her dad's "very wealthy" friend. But her critiques of the "flavorless" Toffee-Tastic and "kind of boring" Trefoil landed the sixth-grader a much bigger windfall: Sales exceeding 15,000 boxes, and counting. McCourt is a member of a "miniscule but mighty" five-person-troop. While she had already sold 92 boxes, she wanted to more customers to donate cookies to the U.S. military. So Charlotte's dad,...

    Heather Leavell, a fourth-generation Girl Scouts troop leader and proud mother of an 8-year-old Brownie, could not sleep the night after she found out the Girl Scouts would be marching in Fridays inaugural parade for President-elect Donald Trump. How, she wondered, could an organization that preaches respect and honesty and that seeks to empower young girls march for a man who has repeatedly demeaned women and bragged about groping their genitals? My blood was boiling, said Leavell, a 43-year-old Melrose resident. My whole life, Ive been very proud to be a Girl Scout. But if they march in this inauguration,...

    We should have seen this coming. There is no doubt that this was the next logical step. Once the Gender Dysphoria camel had his/her/its nose inside the tent, we could expect nothing less than the whole camel. Now, as there is a battle over where people can use the restroom heating up, a mainstay in the development of girls has now decided that it would denounce the specialness that is womanhood.

    ST. LOUIS (ChurchMilitant.com) - The head of the St. Louis archdiocese is disbanding the Catholic Committee on Girl Scouts and cutting off ties to the youth organization. In a letter issued Thursday, Abp. Robert J. Carlson set forth a number of concerns regarding the Girl Scouts and its parent organization, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). Among its concerns is "WAGGGS' continued promotion of contraception and 'abortion rights' on behalf of its girl members, the majority of whom are minors." The letter also notes worries over the Girl Scouts' promotion of radical feminist icons Gloria Steinem...

    The national organization—GSUSA—maintains memberships, alongside abortion providers, in pro-abortion organizations; and confirms that its local councils and troops may collaborate with Planned Parenthood. Additionally, GSUSA honors Congresswomen Nancy Pelosi, Sheila Jackson Lee, and Barbara Lee, all ardent advocates of abortion who even support partial birth abortion. The international organization—World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS)—which is funded by GSUSA, demands “non-judgmental sexual and reproductive-health information and services to all,” in its campaign The World We Want For Girls 2015. At the local level, every Girl Scout council promotes pro-abortion organizations and women to girls in your community via...

    They call their group "The Unicorns." The six young girls teach themselves things they didn't learn in the Girl Scouts, like building a campfire. "I got jealous of what my brother got to do because he's a Boy Scout ...," said 10-year-old Ella Jacobs. Jacobs and her friend, Allie Westover, decided they were more interested in what the boys were doing. So last fall, they started participating in activities alongside a local Boy Scout troop. "I really like competitions and I really enjoy competitive nature and also working in teams and so being in Boy Scouts gave me the opportunity...

    As the Girl Scouts USA continues to hemorrhage members and money because of its continued support of what many see as extreme ideological ideas, Girl Scout leaders from around the world converged on the Vatican to meet with Pope Francis, only to receive a gentle but firm scolding on gender ideology. The optics were clear. The group, which has staked out positions in opposition to Christian teaching on abortion and human sexuality, met with Francis hoping the thousands of daughters and moms exiting Scouting would have a second thought. Pictures of Girl Scouts USA CEO Anna Marie Chavez shaking hands...

    July 2, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - An unusual request from a major donor to a regional branch of the U.S. Girl Scouts has drawn attention to the organization’s ongoing support for gender ideology and transgender issues. Girl Scouts of Western Washington CEO Megan Ferland revealed last week that the council had recently received a donation for $100,000. However, after the Girl Scouts’ practice of allowing boys who identify as girls to join the Scouts hit the news during the media’s coverage of the Bruce Jenner case, Ferland says she received a note from the donor putting a condition on the donation.“Please guarantee...

    A Girl Scouts troop in the state of Washington has returned a $100,000 donation because it came with the caveat that it could not be used to support transgender scouts. In an interview Tuesday, Megan Ferland, CEO of the Girls Scouts of Western Washington, said,"Girl Scouts is for every girl, and that is every girl regardless of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion. Every girl is every girl." This includes boys who think they're girls. The Girl Scouts claim their policy is one of "inclusivity," and they welcome transgender scouts, and in fact have several such members...

    Hey, Girl Scouts of America! Your liberal bias is showing! The Blaze is reportingthat a section of a handbook entitled "MEdia" (yes, with the capitalization and all) is still listing the flaming liberal website Media Matters for America as a reputable source for fact-checking media stories. Media Matters is listed alongside Snopes, which also fact-checks rumors and urban legends and it widely accepted as a truly unbiased source (Media Matters... eh, not so much) - The funny thing is that The Blaze reported this back in 2012 after Christy Volanski noticed the reference in her daughter's guidebook and alerted the...

    So the organization gave the money back. And now they want your help. A $50,000 donation is cause for celebration at the Queen Anne offices of the Girl Scouts of Western Washington. We have these little clapper thingies, and the clappers go mad when we get that kind of gift, says the councils CEO, Megan Ferland. So when Ferland came back to the office earlier this spring and announced that shed just landed a $100,000 donation, the place went mad. Not only did it represent nearly a quarter of the councils annual fundraising goal, it would pay to send 500...
