The Archbishop and the boyz are leery of the Girl Scouts
Afraid that girls want to be more than empty vessels for some guy’s seed
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth has conducted a dialogue with the Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) and issued a non-binding resource guide for bishops to help them decide whether it is appropriate to collaborate with the organization.
According to the USCCB, “the questions can be grouped around three areas: (1) GSUSA’s relationship with organizations such as Planned Parenthood and GSUSA’s relationship to its international affiliate, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS); (2) GSUSA’s policy on matters pertaining to human sexuality, contraception, and abortion; and (3) GSUSA programmatic materials and resources, and questions about inappropriate content.”
Yes, you have to be suspicious about any association with those criminal syndicalists, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts! World Girl Government can’t be far behind. That terrifies the bishops, of course.
In the meantime, Scouts, carry on.
Update: Speaking of criminal syndicalism, Pope Francis apologized today for the Catholic Church’s child abuse and coverup scandal. Maybe the church can regain some moral authority, but it isn’t going to be for a long time.
Further update: Here’s a Frontline video titled Secrets of the Vatican.
