Are the Girl Scouts Right for Catholic Girls? Comments

Girl Scouts is an organization that has always committed itself to teaching girls wholesome skills, such as self-respect, the ability to communicate effectively with other people, and the tools for leadership. Or so we thought. Parents send their daughters to Girl Scouts because it has the reputation of being a program that instills values and builds character, but it has become increasingly clear recently that parents, especially Catholic ...

    It seems to me, that rather than leaving the GSUSA, we need to reclaim them, along with other women of faith and good will. It all starts at the troop level, and it's the troop leaders and assistants who ultimately determine what the girls see and hear - My leaders flat-out told me some of the stuff in my book was wrong 40-50 years ago, and i did the same when I was a leader! Scouting began as a grassroots movement, with 8-10 girls in Atlanta, and we can re-claim it the same way. Pray to Our Blessed Lady and to the Holy Spirit for guidance and grace.

    While reading this article, the image came to mind of a kid with its hand in a cookie jar, being asked by Mommy from another room, "What are you doing?" and the Little Dear , hand still in the cookie jar, saying, " Nothing, Mommy !"

    This is the overall method of the radical feminists when dealing with structures that have moral authority. Problem is, kids grow up and abuse the parents that didn't teach them that wrong is wrong, even if no one is looking.

    Now the mortal authority of the Catholic Church, and the moral authority of all parents, and the natural moral law are being challenged with the Obama Care mandate to abuse right moral order.

    It has come full circle; the sneaky child has grown up and the challenge has been made. One or the other will have to back down.

    This is a very good article and gives facts so that parents can realize that there is so much to be concerned about. As parents we are the vicars of our children and we must be role models. The GS program starts with their indoctrination at kindergarten age and continues through the program. Girls are taught to think that the material is normal. Thankfully no leader would EVER use this programs material. We have wonderful ladies being leaders. Most GS troops are now just social clubs as the material GS puts forth is porn and not in keeping with our Catholic faith. The big proglem comes in the fact that.....When girls pay a registration fee or when cookies are sold the GS are using that money to finance the agenda of promoting the sexualization of our children and the abortion message. What a terrible way to work at destroying the innocense of our girls. The girls are being USED as pawns to sell over 714million in cookies not to mention books,badges,uniforms,etc. All leaders are now realizing that they have been used and feel betrayed for putting their trust in this org. We can and must do better for our girls. Start with Facebook Make the Girl Scouts Clean Again Pray for country because he controls the youth controls the country. The Girl Scouts want our kids.
