Bob Morris, a Republican lawmaker in Indiana has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that religious ideology and politics do not mix. Morris, a mentally handicapped Christian(He's handicapped because he's Christian, not because he has a brain disorder.)attacked the Girl Scouts of America by claiming that the cookie selling little girls were a 'tactical arm' of Planned Parenthood and promoted a pro-abortion, anti-homosexual agenda.
"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."
"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."
It's clear from his comments that Morris is convinced that the only thing worse than death is the Girls Scouts.
Now I would agree that some of the material I saw that has been distributed to Girl Scouts has graphic descriptions of sex coupled with some inappropriate suggestions on how to "do it". I am also kind of disturbed at the poor choice of "role models" for these young girls. Lesbians are fine in my book, feminists are too radical and if there is a confessed Communist in their literature I will poo-poo on the GSA a little myself.
I think that there are definitely some radical leftist ideals filtering in to youth oriented groups in this country, and I detest such intrusions, but Bob Morris just makes himself look silly by blowing up like a child about this, instead of trying to have a reasoned discussion on the subject. When we add this to the already ridiculous statements from presidential candidates like Rick Santorum, it's clear that in 2012 Republicans are just as unhinged as the Democrats have been since the anointed one took office.
I pray(in a very secular fashion) that Ron Paul pulls a miracle out of his posterior and clinches the nomination, otherwise we are in for another 4 years of mentally deficient politicians fucking this country up the ass.
