    It’s easy to be corrupt when you kill for a living. Does anyone really expect the nation’s largest abortion and baby-parts-trafficking chain to be honest about its numbers? They abort and distort every single day.

    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.

    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 dangerous thunderstorm struck the D.C. area last night after President and Mrs. Obama had their photo-op with the Girl Scouts camped out on the White House lawn, prompting an emergency evacuation of the campers. But not to the nearby White House, mind you. The Girl Scouts had to go across the street and seek shelter in the Eisenhower Building:

    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 reporting that 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 council’s CEO, Megan Ferland. So when Ferland came back to the office earlier this spring and announced that she’d just landed a $100,000 donation, the place went mad. Not only did it represent nearly a quarter of the council’s annual fundraising goal, it would pay to send 500...

    Those pint-sized radical feminists also known as the Girl Scouts are in trouble again — this time for their transgender-inclusion policy — and they’ve wasted no time in shutting down the haters. Though the national organization has formally accepted transgender girls into its ranks since 2012, it seems one conservative organization has either just heard the news or has been stewing about it ever since. “A new Girl Scouts of America (GSA) policy states it will extend membership to boys who identify as girls,” notes the website of the American Family Association, a Christian-morals organization that’s been labeled an anti-LGBT hate...

    The Girl Scouts are concerned about falling membership and a declining number of adult volunteers, so a Girl Scout staffer in Salt Lake City cooked up the idea to start a troop headquartered in the area’s “gay pride center.” The idea is to attract “transgender” youth and children living with an LGBT parent. Shari Solomon-Kleba told the Associated Press, “Girl Scouts is all about empowering girls to become leaders who make the world a better place. Why not at the Pride Center?”

    January is a time of year when the pro-life spotlight shines especially bright. In an ironic coincidence, last month’s commemorations marking Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, the landmark Supreme Court decisions that legalized abortion in 1973, coincide with Girl Scout cookie season in most areas of the country. This iconic organization and its fundraising product has become an increasing flashpoint for pro-lifers, as more and more become aware of the numerous concerns regarding the Girl Scout organization. In January 2014, numerous pro-life groups organized a “cookiecott” that garnered significant media attention. Given the public’s increasing awareness and response...

    FULL TITLE: Girl Scout membership plummets for second straight year losing more than 100,000 members For the second straight year, youth and adult membership in the Girl Scouts has dropped sharply, intensifying pressure on the 102-year-old youth organization to find ways of reversing the trend. According to figures provided to The Associated Press, the total of youth members and adult volunteers dropped by 6 per cent over the past year — from 2,994,844 to 2,813,997.

    WASHINGTON — Tensions between Girl Scouts’ messaging and Catholic teaching have led to a national boycott of Girl Scout cookies, the ousting of Girl Scouts from parishes, and a significant drop in Catholic membership in the Girl Scouts. Now a panel of U.S. bishops has released the results of a two-year investigation into Girl Scouts’ problematic messaging, ties to Planned Parenthood, and continued advocacy of so-called reproductive rights by the organization’s international affiliate, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). Their findings indicate that the concerns continue to persist, regarding the problematic connections between the Girl Scouts...

Catholic teens are wondering after participating in a Girl Scouts meeting to collect young women’s opinions on the new goals that will steer UN policy – and billions of dollars in aid – for years to come. “We were just a ‘means to an end,’” said one young lady. “All they wanted was for us to validate their point.” The UN is undergoing a lengthy process to determine new goals on poverty and development. Many say young people’s opinions should be included and a number of groups are stepping forward to...

The seven-year-old and her father were fundraising on Strawberry Tree Lane in Temecula, California, with a tin of baked goods on Sunday morning. But at 11.30am she knocked on a door and was met with a deadly weapon. The pair scarpered, horrified, and called the police. John Michael Dodrill, 59, has been arrested and charged with the offence, and is due to appear in court tomorrow.... Her father, who witnessed the alleged offence, called the police.

    The Girl Scouts have apologized for seeming to endorse abortion advocate Wendy Davis in a tweet late last month, ..... The endorsement has caused a firestorm of protest among Girl Scouts, their moms, and the public at large. The controversy comes at precisely the wrong time for the Girl Scouts, right in the middle of the cookie-selling season that nets the Girl Scouts somewhere around $700 million. (snip) The first cookie boycott run by John Pisciotta, executive director of Pro-Life Waco, had a tremendous effect on the Girl Scouts, even driving then Girl Scout CEO onto national television to defend...

    A part of every Thin Mint and Do-Si-Do, every Samoa and Savannah Smile goes to support abortion advocacy. So say John Pisciotta, who runs a tiny pro-life organization in Waco, Texas, and a dozen national pro-life organizations he has convinced to join him in a national boycott of Girl Scout cookies that will be announced in Texas tomorrow. A few weeks ago, the Girl Scouts designated Wendy Davis as an “incredible woman” who deserved to be on the list of 2013 “Women of the Year.” Only a month earlier, the organization promoted Kathleen Sebelius as a woman of “courage” on...

    The above picture is going viral on the net. It shows a couple of members of Come And Take It of Fort Worth with some Girl Scouts.   I talked to Kathy Perkins, who was there,  and she told me about how it came to be taken. Kathy says that the local chapter of Come And Take it was engaging in their usual act of civic education by taking a walk in the area.   While they were doing so, they saw the Girl Scouts selling cookies.   Feeling a little hungry, they decided to buy some of the cookies.  The Girl...

    As Tony Lee of Breitbart News reported Saturday, the Girl Scouts recently promoted late-term abortion advocate and Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis as one of their “incredible women of the year.”According to the report, the official Girl Scouts Twitter account referred to Davis, who filibustered a bill that banned abortions past 20 weeks of pregnancy, as “incredible,” and linked to a Huffington Post list containing the names of Gloria Steinem and Davis. The Girl Scouts’ ties to the institutional left and the abortion industry have become increasingly apparent, with Breitbart News’ Austin Ruse delivering the most recent exposé of the...

    Who should young girls grow up to be like? If you listen to the Girl Scouts, the answer is apparently they should aspire to become Wendy Davis, the state legislator whose sole claim to fame is standing up against a bill to stop abortions all the way to birth in Texas. On December 18, 2013, Girl Scouts USA tweeted: “Incredible Ladies Who Should Be Women of the Year for 2013” and asking if anyone should be added to the list. Is there anyone you’d add to this list?

    It says something about the Girl Scouts of America’s radical approach in recent years that its chief spokesman is none other than Josh Ackley, front man for a “homo punk” rock group called “The Dead Betties.” Ackley is not new to the Scouts. He’s been with the group since 2008, and a year later, he began blogging for it. He now appears to be both the face and voice of the 101-year-old organization after the recent departure of its public relations chief, Michelle Tompkins, according to Breitbart News. Breitbart reported: If you are a national reporter writing on the Girl...

If you are a Girl Scout mom concerned about the sometimes-troubling drift of the Girl Scouts in recent years, Josh Ackley may be the one you’ll meet with.

    A Colorado radio host is urging listeners to give up Girl Scout cookies due to what he referred to as the organization's promotion of "lesbianism." Kevin Swanson, a pastor and right-wing activist, said on his "Generations Radio" program, which originates in Elizabeth, Colo., that he doesn't condone purchasing Girl Scout cookies because the organization promotes homosexuality and supports abortion, MSNBC reported Tuesday. "Please, I beg of you, stop buying Girl Scout cookies," Swanson said on Monday's radio broadcast. "I'd say you ought to say no to the Girl Scout cookies," Swanson said. "I don't want to support lesbianism, I don't...
