Catholic Bishops Challenge Girl Scouts USA For Conflict With Church Teachings!

Dear Commons Community,

The Huffington Post is reporting that Catholic bishops are openly expressing concerns about the Girl Scouts because of positions associated with sex education, abortion and Planned Parenthood.  The Post reports:

“Long a lightning rod for conservative criticism, the Girl Scouts of the USA are now facing their highest-level challenge yet: An official inquiry by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

At issue are concerns about program materials that some Catholics find offensive, as well as assertions that the Scouts associate with other groups espousing stances that conflict with church teaching. The Scouts, who have numerous parish-sponsored troops, deny many of the claims and defend their alliances.”

I side with the Girl Scouts!

  1. Well, many Catholics have left the Girl Scouts because they have published left wing websites only in the girls books. They are planting seeds that are contrary to Catholic church teaches. Camps are being run by lesbians, just look at the Margaret Singer award (founder of abortion) within the Girl Scouts. I strongly suggest Little Flowers and especially with American Heritage Girls. Even the Boy Scouts have partnered with American Heritage Girls because their missions compliment each other. Girl Scouts think it’s ok to teach our girls about sex. Well, it’s not any of their business. They are tied to Planned Parenthood forming their best customers.
