The Archbishop of Kansas City severed ties with the Girl Scouts.
Archbishop Joseph Naumann felt that the Girl Scouts has become increasingly secular and their values are inconsistent with the Gospel.
The Girl Scouts has morphed into feminazis in training. The Archbishop cited disturbing ties to Planned Parenthood.
“In a statement earlier this month, the archbishop noted that he has studied the concern about the Girl Scouts for a number of years, engaging in discussions with parents, scouts, pastors, and Girl Scouts representatives. He states the “disturbing content in materials and resources” created and distributed by the national Girl Scouts organization, and discovered by his youth ministry staff, was a primary factor in his final decision.
“The national organization, for example, contributes more than a million dollars each year to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGS), an organization tied to International Planned Parenthood and its advocacy for legislation that includes both contraception and abortion as preventive health care for women.
[Abortion promoters] Margaret Sanger, Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem are frequently held up in materials as role models for young Scouts. These as well as many other “role models” in the GSUSA’s new manuals and web content not only do not reflect our Catholic worldview but stand in stark opposition to what we believe.”
It’s good to have options.
The parishes in his archdiocese will instead host The American Heritage Girls. It’s a group that isn’t tied to the abortion touting, gender bending feminazi movement.
Breitbart reported that “the group was founded in 1995 by Patti Garibay, a Girl Scout volunteer who grew uncomfortable with the organization when the word “God” became optional in the Girl Scouts promise.”
Hats off to the founder. She didn’t just complain or quit. She created an alternative organization. What an amazing role model for girls.
Parents cannot be bullied into sacrificing their children.
In a recent post about a Catholic School rejecting a transgender play for 5 year olds, Clinton Somerton of Campaign Life Coalition praised the Catholic board for shutting down the play.
Although he was referring to the transgender agenda specifically, IMO the approach can be applied to other ways the the “Liberals” seek to indoctrinate our children. Part of Somerton’s response is worth re-posting here.
“On the contrary, NCDSB needs to be bold and outspoken in its commitment to protecting children, and in calling out these pan-sexual ideologues as child abusers. … It is our collective failure to resist the sexual militants that has allowed the situation to deteriorate to the point where such groups can virtually demand access to little children while fearful adults stand gaping and blinking helplessly.”
