Two Girl Scout cookie sellers were targeted by a woman who drove up to their cookie stand and snatched their hard-earned dough, reports WPBF.com The drive-by happened Sunday night at a shopping center in Palm Beach Gardens. A woman in a maroon, four-door Honda pulled up to 7-year-old Vanessa Bergeron's cookie table and asked for a box of the treats. Her mother, Missy, was also at the table and walked up...

    Americans may still see the Girl Scouts of America (GSA) as an apolitical group but the group’s leader has acknowledged a marked change in the GSA. “We’re not your mother’s Girl Scout troup,” GSA executive director Marty Evans has said. “In 1972, they dropped loyalty to their country from their oath in favor of ‘I will do my best to be honest and fair,’” J. C. Willke writes in the October 2010 issue of the Life Issues Connector newsletter. “In 1975 the first Catholic Archdiocese cut off all support for the Girl Scouts because of their sex-ed program.” “During 1993,...

Garvey, LDI's Director of Communications. It is estimated that the boycott has cost Planned Parenthood more than $40 million since the Corporate Funding Project (CFP) began nearly 18 years ago....

    Willie stood calmly as each of the children at Hawk-Houston Boys and Girls Club approached him, holding out their hands before patting him on the chin or chest. The small Yorkshire terrier was there with his owner to teach the children about responsible dog ownership and dog bite prevention. The program being used that afternoon was created by local Girl Scout Kathryn Venezia. The Houston Academy senior developed the program as part of her effort to earn the Girl Scout’s highest honor, the Gold Award. Last year, there were 5,500 Girl Scouts who earned Gold awards. “I wanted something more...

    Girls Scouts Go Wild Malcolm A. Kline, March 22, 2010 While Girl Scouts around the country went door to door selling cookies, their national representatives were trying to explain a sex brochure distributed at a UN meeting the GSA was represented at. “As to their claim that the brochure might have been left in the room by a previous organizational user, the Friday Fax looked into the question of who used the room prior to the Girl Scouts at 4:00 pm on March 1,” Terrence McKeegan reported in a weekly communication sent out by the Catholic Family and Human Rights...

    What every girl should know about being "hot" now is being provided – by Planned Parenthood in concert with the Girl Scouts. This week, the World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides held a no-adults-welcome panel at the United Nations in which Planned Parenthood distributed a brochure entitled "Healthy, Happy and Hot." ............ ............ The brochure targets young people and contains graphic details on sex. It also encourages casual sex in many forms. "Many people think sex is just about vaginal or anal intercourse… But, there are lots of different ways to have sex and lots of different types...

    I've seen more than a few boxes of Do-Si-Dos and Samoas around lately. It's hard to look askance at the Girl Scouts when there's so much sweetness in the air. But there is reason for keeping the Girl Scouts out of the "mom and apple pie" category. For one thing, the organization has a think tank, a nongovernmental organization and a welcome mat out to Planned Parenthood. At a meeting of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women this month, the World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides held a session for young people in which the...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A pro-life organization that monitors corporations that donate money to Planned Parenthood has released a new list of companies that give money to the nation's largest abortion business. New corporations on the boycott list include jeweler Tiffany & Company and Blackjack Pizza restaurants. Life Decisions International has been monitoring companies for over 15 years and says that at least 137 corporations have stopped funding Planned Parenthood as a result of the pro-life boycotts. That's cost Planned Parenthood an estimated $35 million. "This should be a testament to those who believe it is impossible to change corporate...

    Until the mass murder at Fort Hood intervened, I’d intended to write about Thursday’s bingo night to benefit the Girl Scouts. It was a cold and stormy night. Almost all of the summer visitors are gone. We thought there’d be sparse attendance at the monthly charity bingo game put on by the Rotary Club. But the place was packed, wall to wall. Dozens of Brownies and Girl Scouts in uniform were scurrying about, serving the players. Final figures weren’t available on the spot. From prior experience, however, I’m sure more than $1,000 was raised for the Scouts. How ordinary is...

    Twin Falls, Idaho » The headquarters for 620 Girls Scouts in south-central Idaho is moving because too many registered sex offenders live near its current downtown office, officials said. "Do we feel this is the safest environment for girls being served in the area?" asked Shelli Rambo Robertson, CEO of the Girl Scouts of Silver Sage Council, which includes Idaho, Oregon and Nevada. "We did not." The group last month discontinued meetings at the southern Idaho office and is moving to a new office near the College of Southern Idaho. The headquarters on Fourth Avenue was in an industrial part...

    SNIPPET: "For all his public activity, Bray has rarely, if ever, discussed his life story in detail. His own MAS biography offers vague descriptions of his work as "a long time civil and human rights advocate." A charismatic African-American convert to Islam, Bray spent this entire decade working for Islamist organizations. Prior to joining MAS, Bray was political director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). Those jobs have helped him build a growing public profile and given him access to politicians and policy makers. And that may explain his reluctance to discuss his life before political activism.

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – The United States wants to enlist its 3.4 million Girl Scouts in the effort to combat hurricanes, pandemics, terror attacks and other disasters. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) launched a campaign Tuesday to entice the blue, brown and green-clad multitudes to be even more prepared, with the promise of a new patch if they pitch in. The young scouts will be able to emblazon their sashes or vests with the patch if they undergo the training which readies them for an emergency. "This new preparedness patch will increase citizen preparedness and enhance our country's readiness for...

    FORT HUACHUCA — One of the first things a group of post Brownies did with a solar oven was bake brownies. Members of Brownie Troop 2181 have decided their community service project will involve solar ovens. The girls’ goal is to buy five of the ovens for needy families. “We want to help people who don’t have a lot,” 6-year-old troop member K.J. Engasser said. The recently formed troop is working with Baja Arizona Sustainable Agriculture, a nonprofit education organization in Sierra Vista that promotes sustainable food production and sustainable methods of cooking, such as solar ovens That the Brownies...
