It appears that the Catholic Church has put the Girl Scouts under "scrutiny" with a special inquiry. Which, if I remember correctly from the American Nun-association, means that they're facing the Inquisition.
I'm not too sure what the Girl Scouts have to do with the Catholic Church. Anyone know if they are Catholic?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.
The Catholic News Agency is, however, incensed. Not about the fact that the girls are being investigated, but that the Washington Post got it wrong.
What's going on? Anyone know?Numerous sources -- including former Girl Scouts , Scout leaders , and pro-life leaders -- have documented hundreds of examples of the Girl Scouts promoting pro-abortion and LGBT resources, recommending sexually explicit books and movies, highlighting pro-abortion leaders and lesbians as role models, partnering with LGBT and pro-abortion activist groups, including Planned Parenthood, and referring girls to pro-abortion organizations to learn about “advocacy ” (a pet word in the new Girl Scouts).
