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.

Not mmmmm . . . Frog Soup

When I was in Taipei, Taiwan on business years ago, we were served Frog Fat Soup (among several other things that I still suspect were part of an elaborate practical joke, but that’s another topic).  Apparently it is a delicacy made with the fat of frogs from a cold climate.  I’m a somewhat picky eater, but when traveling internationally I try to be a good sport and sample the local cuisine.  Let’s just say that one spoonful was plenty for me.

That reminds me of a different kind of Frog Soup: A metaphor a friend and I use to describe our culture.  It is based on the popular example about how frogs will jump out of hot water if you toss them in it, but if you put them in cold water and slowly turn it up they’ll stay in it until they die.  Just like with the frogs, our culture has slowly deteriorated to where it accepts all kinds of things that would have landed people in jail just a few decades ago.

Hence, this culture is a massive bowl of Frog Soup.  We’re drowning in it.  I’m not referring to the random freaks we see but the mainstreaming of perversions.

We permit the legal destruction of 3,000+ unwanted human beings each day because they get in the way of the myth of sex-without-consequences.

As I predicted earlier in the last decade, schools are beginning to teach kids as young as 5 how “normal” homosexual, bisexual and transgender behaviors are.  Too many people fail to ask why the government has a mandate to teach such things.  They’ll try to say that parents may not teach it at home (good for those parents!), but they can’t explain why anyone should teach it.

If you oppose the oxymoron that is “same-sex marriage,” you are considered a hater.

We do nothing about the massive amounts of pornography in our culture.

We not only tolerate but fund organizations like Planned Parenthood that, in addition to being the top destroyer of human life in the country, systematically hide statutory rape and sex trafficking (when not teaching your kids to ignore the perspectives on human sexuality that you and your religion hold).

Planned Parenthood even has their tentacles in the Girl Scouts organization.  (Hat tip: An Un-civil War)

Frog Soup is disgusting.  Throw it out.  Vote your values.  Prepare yourself, then stand up for the truth.  Stop fearing man and the future.  We can’t just blame non-Christians, they are just (generally) doing and permitting what is in their job description.  We need to be the light to the world and agents of change.  There is a better way, and it starts with God.
