    They've been after the Girl Scouts for a while now. It's really pathetic.

    Oh goody --- more misinformation being paraded out as "fact" by MSNBC.

    Oh, and Arty, please provide the names of any members here who are telling YOU or anyone else here to "Vote Republican", and provide proof in the way of posts that actually tell anyone here to "Vote Republican". Or, would this just be more of your delusional ranting that we have come to expect?

    LOL! Attack the messenger. Except here the messenger isn't your boogey man MSNBC, but the local Indiana "Journal Gazette" newspaper, quoting the man's own official letter to the Republican caucus of the State legislature. Opppsss! Let see what the locals have to contribute to this: (underlined is my emphasis)

    Verbatim text of letter from Indiana state Rep. Bob Morris, R-Fort Wayne, to fellow lawmakers.

    February 18, 2012

    Members of the Republic [sic] Caucus

    Dear Fellow Representatives:

    This past week I was asked to sign a House Resolution recognizing the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts of America. After talking to some well-informed constituents, I did a small amount of web-based research, and what I found is disturbing. The Girl Scouts of America and their worldwide partner, World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), have entered into a close strategic affiliation with Planned Parenthood. You will not find evidence of this on the GSA/WAGGGS website—in fact, the websites of these two organizations explicitly deny funding Planned Parenthood.

    Nonetheless, abundant evidence proves that the agenda of Planned Parenthood includes sexualizing young girls through the Girl Scouts, which is quickly becoming a tactical arm of Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood instructional series and pamphlets are part of the core curriculum at GSA training seminars. Denver Auxiliary Bishop James D. Conley of Denver last year warned parents that "membership in the Girl Scouts could carry the danger of making their daughters more receptive to the pro-abortion agenda."

    A Girl Scouts of America training program last year used the Planned Parenthood sex education pamphlet "Happy, Healthy, and Hot." The pamphlet instructs young girls not to think of sex as "just about vaginal or anal intercourse." "There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!" it states. Although individual Girl Scout troops are not forced to follow this curriculum, many do. Liberal progressive troop-leaders will indoctrinate the girls in their troop according to the principles of Planned Parenthood, making Bishop Conley's warning true.

    Many parents are abandoning the Girl Scouts because they promote homosexual lifestyles. In fact, the Girl Scouts education seminar girls are directed to study the example of role models. Of the fifty role models listed, only three have a briefly-mentioned religious background – all the rest are feminists, lesbians, or Communists. World Net Daily, in a May 2009 article, states that Girl Scout Troops are no longer allowed to pray or sing traditional Christmas Carols.

    Boys who decide to claim a "transgender" or cross-dressing life-style are permitted to become a member of a Girl Scout troop, performing crafts with the girls and participate in overnight and camping activities – just like any real girl. The fact that the Honorary President of Girl Scouts of America is Michelle Obama, and the Obama's are radically pro-abortion and vigorously support the agenda of Planned Parenthood, should give each of us reason to pause before our individual or collective endorsement of the organization.

    As members of the Indiana House of Representatives, we must be wise before we use the credibility and respect of the "Peoples' House" to extend legitimacy to a radicalized organization. The Girl Scouts of America stand in a strong tradition that reflects with fidelity the traditional values of our homes and our families. The tradition extends from coast-to-coast and back through the past one hundred years. That said, I challenge each of you to examine these matters more closely before you extend your name and your reputation to endorse a group that has been subverted in the name of liberal progressive politics and the destruction of traditional American family values.

    I have two daughters who have been active in the Girl Scouts of Limberlost Council in Northeastern Indiana. Now that I am aware of the influence of Planned Parenthood within GSA and other surprisingly radical policies of GSA, my two daughters will instead become active in American Heritage Girls Little Flowers organization. In this traditional group they will learn about values and principles that will not confuse their conservative Hoosier upbringing.

    I have been told that, as of today, I am the only member not supporting the Girl Scout Resolution.

    I challenge each of you to examine these matters and to decide carefully whether or not to sign the resolution.

    Respectfully,

    Bob Morris


    Now please explain that "misinformation" CuriousJockAZ. And I will politely avoid addressing your routine ad hominem attacks against me personally, that only serve your goal to divert attention from the topic at hand.

    I'm waiting for our favorite conserve friend from up north to show up and tell you that you are an "idiot" for using "ad hominem" attacks because you don't like the source...

    I mean, if he's gonna be fair and attacking a source is an "ad hominem" attack and makes one a "foolish" arguer, I'm sure this is something that he'd be willing to support on all accusations of source issues, even when brought up by a conservative.

    But, beyond that..

    You may disagree with MSNBC, but this ain't an opinion piece...it's fact and everywhere:

    Just search Bob Morris and girl scouts...They can't all be lies.

    No, just the vast majority. Are you suggesting that Conservatives vote for Democrats? That would be a hard sell, don't you think?

    CuriousJockAZ,

    You said, "Oh goody --- more misinformation being paraded out as "fact" by MSNBC."

    The misinformation comment is not directed at Art_Deco's assertion that members on this site urged others to vote Republican, but rather it was directed at the news delivered by MSNBC.

    ...Unless Art_Deco works for MSNBC.

    Hmmm, why would a supposedly straight, married man spend so much time thinking about gay sex and see imagined homosexual "threats" where they don't exist?

    Oh, that's why.

    Considering what the GOP has on its plate for POTUS candidates, I'm very likely going to be a (reluctant) Obama voter in November.

    I'm down with that.

    When that 'boycott the cookies' went viral, I went out and bought six boxes from a stand where some girls and their moms were selling them. And I told them why I was supporting them. They were shocked---they'd heard nothing about it at all.


    It takes alot of "balls" or figurative balls for 1 girl to boycott a organization because they are admitting someone she doesn't want around.

    The fact they heard nothing about the issue isn't surprising. Its refreshing. At that age they should be doing girl scout things and not worrying about silly adult issues about inclusion.

    Operation thin Mint sends cookies to the troops overseas.

    Do they the Girl Guides allow males yet? As the Scouts have been forced to accept girls! If not then yes feminisem is certainly at work, that would attract many lesbians too!
