Lesbians! Feminists! COMM-unists! The Sky Is Falling!

From Anne Gregory of the Ft. Wayne, Ind., Journal Gazette, via onetime Girl Scout Fleabane, comes the following text of a letter from Indiana state Rep. Bob Morris, R-Fort Wayne, to fellow lawmakers.

Members of the Republic (sic) Caucus
Dear Fellow Representatives:

This past week I was asked to sign a House Resolution recognizing the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts of America. After talking to some well-informed constituents, I did a small amount of web-based research, and what I found is disturbing. The Girl Scouts of America and their worldwide partner, World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), have entered into a close strategic affiliation with Planned Parenthood. You will not find evidence of this on the GSA/WAGGGS website—in fact, the websites of these two organizations explicitly deny funding Planned Parenthood.

Nonetheless, abundant evidence proves that the agenda of Planned Parenthood includes sexualizing young girls through the Girl Scouts, which is quickly becoming a tactical arm of Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood instructional series and pamphlets are part of the core curriculum at GSA training seminars. Denver Auxiliary Bishop James D. Conley of Denver last year warned parents that "membership in the Girl Scouts could carry the danger of making their daughters more receptive to the pro-abortion agenda."

A Girl Scouts of America training program last year used the Planned Parenthood sex education pamphlet "Happy, Healthy, and Hot." The pamphlet instructs young girls not to think of sex as "just about vaginal or anal intercourse." "There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!" it states. Although individual Girl Scout troops are not forced to follow this curriculum, many do. Liberal progressive troop-leaders will indoctrinate the girls in their troop according to the principles of Planned Parenthood, making Bishop Conley's warning true.

Many parents are abandoning the Girl Scouts because they promote homosexual lifestyles. In fact, the Girl Scouts education seminar girls are directed to study the example of role models. Of the fifty role models listed, only three have a briefly-mentioned religious background – all the rest are feminists, lesbians, or Communists. World Net Daily, in a May 2009 article, states that Girl Scout Troops are no longer allowed to pray or sing traditional Christmas Carols.

Boys who decide to claim a "transgender" or cross-dressing life-style are permitted to become a member of a Girl Scout troop, performing crafts with the girls and participate in overnight and camping activities – just like any real girl. The fact that the Honorary President of Girl Scouts of America is Michelle Obama, and the Obama's are radically pro-abortion and vigorously support the agenda of Planned Parenthood, should give each of us reason to pause before our individual or collective endorsement of the organization.

As members of the Indiana House of Representatives, we must be wise before we use the credibility and respect of the "Peoples' House" to extend legitimacy to a radicalized organization. The Girl Scouts of America stand in a strong tradition that reflects with fidelity the traditional values of our homes and our families. The tradition extends from coast-to-coast and back through the past one hundred years. That said, I challenge each of you to examine these matters more closely before you extend your name and your reputation to endorse a group that has been subverted in the name of liberal progressive politics and the destruction of traditional American family values.

I have two daughters who have been active in the Girl Scouts of Limberlost Council in Northeastern Indiana. Now that I am aware of the influence of Planned Parenthood within GSA and other surprisingly radical policies of GSA, my two daughters will instead become active in American Heritage Girls Little Flowers organization. In this traditional group they will learn about values and principles that will not confuse their conservative Hoosier upbringing.

Bob Morris

  1. Healthy, Happy and Hot
    "A guide written for young people living with HIV to help them understand their rights, and live healthy, happy and sexually fulfilling lives."

  2. are you suggesting a right wing repugnican would actually LIE to tarnish the
    > reputation of something as all-american as the girl scouts?
    > the horror!

  3. i hereby offer the following deal to the honorable bob morris,
    >> republican of indiana.
    >> if he can provide proof that the girl scouts of america distributed a
    >> booklet titled "happy, healthy and hot," i will either:
    >> 1) eat the dirty old hiking boots that reside at the dark back of my
    >> closet floor,
    >> or, if he prefers
    >> 2) kiss his ass in macy's window (or just outside the macy's window of
    >> his choice, if macy's will not let us in the window for this purpose.
    >> the choice is his.
    >> in fact, i will do BOTH things if planned parenthood has such a booklet.

  4. do i think that the honorable bob is untruthful?

    heaven forfend!

    i would say, rather, that the honorable bob lives in a parallel
    universe. i'm sure it is a beautiful parallel universe, one in which
    truth and beauty reign supreme and never is heard a discouraging word
    except when the girl scouts of america fall under the influence of
    sluts from yet ANOTHER parallel universe.

  5. to paraphrase the ingenious stephen colbert, "all it needs is the aura of truthiness"
    masters of propaganda indeed.

  6. Planned Parenthood of IndianaFebruary 23, 2012 at 8:03 AM

    "It was disappointing to read Rep. Morris' inflammatory, misleading, woefully inaccurate and harmful words about Planned Parenthood, the Girl Scouts of America, and the President and First Lady.
    PPIN does not produce or distribute the materials Rep. Morris referenced. Planned Parenthood of Indiana is first and foremost a provider of affordable, high-quality health care, serving more than 100,000 Hoosiers across the state. Our nonprofit provides preventive services such as life-saving cancer screenings, Pap tests, birth control, testing and treatment for STDs, as well as sexual health education and health counseling. As part of our sexual education services, we offer a variety of age-appropriate education services developed by trained professionals.
    Inflammatory and generally inaccurate claims about a partnership between the Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood have been promoted primarily by anti-choice lawmakers seeking to place pressure on organizations to disassociate or distance themselves from Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood currently has no formal partnership with the Girl Scouts, but supports their mission and recognizes their century of contributions to our society.

  7. I have friends that are gay and to be quite frank most of them were in prior heterogenous relationships are marriages and never saw themselves as a person that would be homosexual.

    1) We need to stop the 'class stature' of our society. Being a Girl Scout, being in a sorority/fraternity, etc. due not make you gay!
    2) Planned Parenthood originally was formed to provide support to domestic abuse, provide education toward pregnancy,etc. Of late, P.P. has become more involved in abortions and supporting persons that don't understand that having sex could result in a pregnancy. ABORTION IS THE MURDER OF A LIVING HUMAN BEING!!!!! Poor personal choices need to be dealt with in other means than murder! Any person that supports murder should be held liable!
