… among claims of anti-Catholic rhetoric and ties with organizations supporting abortion and contraception, like Planned Parenthood. It would appear the Girl Scouts is an association involved in practices not in line with Church teaching and so a formal investigation was been launched.
It will be interesting to see what results the investigation reveal. I’m not a big fan of the Girl Scouts myself but those feelings are based on my own personal experience with the organization from my childhood as a scout. They never did any of the fun stuff I saw the Boy Scouts doing. We never camped and shot BB guns. We never set things on fire and learned how to bait a hook. It was all boring stuff involving crafts and when I got older the theme became strong, angry, young girls who don’t need filthy rotten boys. Their heavy feminist agenda was the number one reason I remained skeptical about the organization even before I learned they hearted Planned Parenthood like Clooney hearts Obama. That and they are openly secular. Why some Catholic parishes are affiliated with Girl Scout troops always seemed rather odd to me, especially when you have groups like the American Heritage Girls.
If you ask me, and you didn’t, I think young ladies would benefit more from finishing schools. We call them “Charm Schools” here in the South.
