Other than being overpriced, unhealthy and supporting a bad organization, Girl Scout cookies are a great idea

I wish I would have had this article when the little girl and her grandma came to the door last week — Say no to Girl Scout cookies.  I caved and bought one box of the kind my wife likes.  I’ll give the grandma a copy when she delivers it.

I knew the Girl Scouts had issues but it has gotten much worse: Radically pro-abortion and pro-Planned Parenthood-style sex education and more.  Please read the entire link and stop supporting this organization.

When our sweet little neighbor in her brown camp uniform came knocking on our door this year, we had to say no. I told her mother that I didn’t want to hurt Katie’s feelings, but I couldn’t support the Girl Scout cookie sale anymore because I’d learned too much about the organizers’ agenda, primarily their support for abortion and partnership with Planned Parenthood.

I worried that my “political” stand would cause uneasiness between us, but her response put me at ease: “Well,” she said, “they do use unpaid child labor to make their sales, and the troop only gets 10 percent of the revenues anyway.”

Or is it? Cathy Ruse argues that Girl Scouts’ ties with abortion giant Planned Parenthood, and a morally “progressive” agenda discounts it from receiving our support.

True. According to the Girl Scouts’ website, the lion’s share of the money goes not to the troop but to bureaucrats up the chain of command in multicounty councils. The national office gets a piece of the pie, too, in the form of royalties based on gross annual sales volume – about 200 million boxes per year.

. . .

Last year, the Girl Scouts decided to admit boys who dress as girls. . . . Perpetuating this cruel charade on the little boy and forcing little girls to participate in it is “inclusiveness” to the Girl Scouts. To others, it’s child abuse.

But it shouldn’t be surprising: The Girl Scouts have a cross-dresser in the front office.

Ten years ago, Girl Scouts media relations officer Joshua Ackley was frontman for the “homopunk” band the Dead Betties. In publicity shots, he’s dressed in women’s clothing, and in music videos, he appears to be naked and feigning masturbation. The video for “Hellevator” portrays a woman being strangled in an elevator shaft while Mr. Ackley flashes a menacing grin.

Today he issues press releases, posts news and views on the Girl Scouts’ blog, and tries to mollify moms who are concerned about Girl Scout ties with Planned Parenthood. In fact, it was Mr. Ackley who facilitated the Girl Scouts’ “no adults allowed” workshop at the United Nations – the workshop in which the Planned Parenthood sex brochure “Healthy, Happy, and Hot” was offered, although part of Mr. Ackley’s job is to deny it.

It wouldn’t be a surprise if someone like Mr. Ackley was behind the Girl Scouts’ recent scandal: a guidebook that tells girls to check with the leftist, George Soros-funded Media Matters before believing what they read in the news.

. . . Several years ago. a quarter of the Girl Scout councils nationwide admitted to partnering with Planned Parenthood, the nation’s abortion giant. When questioned about the affiliation on NBC’s “Today Show,” Girl Scout CEO Kathy Cloninger had no compunction in confirming it.

The Girl Scouts have been “pro-choice” for years, but now they’ve been caught supporting promiscuous sex for girls. The Planned Parenthood sex guide offered at that “girls only” U.N. meeting offered this advice on Page 11: “Some people have sex when they have been drinking alcohol or using drugs. This is your choice. … If you want to have sex and think you might get drunk or high, plan ahead by bringing condoms and lube or putting them close to where you usually have sex.”

Heard enough? There’s a lot more at 100questionsforthegirlscouts.org.

Earlier this month, a young Girl Scout employee, Renise Rodriguez, made the mistake of stopping by the office to do extra work on her own time in a T-shirt bearing the words: “Pray to End Abortion.” A supervisor ordered her to turn the shirt inside out or leave the office. She left, for good.

So should we all.

  1. You were obviously on the computer before me this morning. You noticed when I read this article because I immediately posted it on FB!

    We haven’t bought G.S. cookies for years. Our daughter was a Brownie in the late 1980s, but then I read an article in “The Wall Street Journal” (still in my files) on 5/13/93. It was a front page article was about how little money from the G.S. cookies actually went to the individual troops and that the majority of it went to the bureaucracy. Over the years I have collected more articles about how the Girl Scouts have teamed up with Planned Parenthood for “sex education” for them, and across the nation Girl Scouts have supported Planned Parenthood events. Meanwhile, the leadership have been indoctrinating the Girl Scouts about homosexuality being just another life-style choice, and allowing lesbians to be leaders (Focus on the Family had an article 11 years ago about how the feminist movement had invaded Girl Scouts, virtually took the phrase “to serve God” out of the Girl Scout promise – making it optional, without attempting to define “God”) and that it is one of the most politically-correct organizations in the country.

    An article from 2009 exposes the leadership as communists and radical feminists, with fully one-third of paid staff being lesbian. The article also exposed the new “Journeys” curriculum for 6th – 8th grades as being full of Eastern religious beliefs, including teaching how to make Zen gardens. The next age group’s curriculum (titled “Girltopia”) is heavily-loaded radical feminism and socialism. The curriculum for teens is even more radical, pushing the “power of advocacy.”

    So this is not a new thing – the Girl Scouts have been corrupt for at least 20 years.

  2. I bought some already, but this will be the last year. I’m going to print and copy the article and post it at work. There is actually no need for them any more now that keebler makes samoas and a good version of the thin mints. Not only are they just as good, they’re half as much and you get more of them.

    My wife was a little upset, but I wouldn’t let our daughter join because of their politics.

  3. I can’t even bring myself to click the ‘like’ button on this post. I will say, however, that I like knowing there are still those, as yourself, who make us aware of this sickening stuff. No more GS cookies in our home! Blessings

  4. Three years ago my husband bought a box of GS cookies and wouldn’t share with me. I went to the dollar store and bought a box of same flavored cookies for $1.50. The inner package mimicked the GS cookie package….and the cookies tasted exactly the same. LOL… It cracked me up. I don’t know what GS charges for the cookies this year–but $1.50 or even $2.50 is cheaper than they charge. If I found one of the GS cookie varieties under another label, there are sure to be others. Best way to double your money??? Fold it and put it back in your pocket !

So, what do you think?
