Girl Scouts
Girl Scouts compete in the Mission Ocean Challenge during the USS California Science Experience
at Naval Surface Warfare. Later, their lesbian, feminist, communist leaders taught them to
destroy everything that is good and wholesome about America. Then they had a troop outing
to an abortion clinic and watched The Ellen Degeneres Show. (Greg Vojtko/U.S. Navy)
In what is looking like a coordinated attack on Girl Scouts of America, the latest salvo comes from Rep. Bob Morris, R-Fort Wayne. The lawmaker declined to sign a letter of resolution congratulating the Girl Scouts on their hundredth anniversary last week and thanking them "for the strong positive influence it has had on the American woman."

Not so fast. Morris explained couldn't sign because "he did some Web-based research and found allegations that the Girl Scouts are a tactical arm of Planned Parenthood, that they allow transgender females to join, 'just like any real girl,' and encourage sex."

The Journal Gazette of Fort Wayne Indiana is reporting he explained his reasons in a letter to colleagues, the text of which the site posts here, and it's a doozie! A choice excerpt:

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.
Feminists, lesbians and communists! Oh my!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
