Oh, what “a small amount of Web-based research” can do. Indiana state Rep. Bob Morris hopped online recently to read up on an organization he was concerned about, one that imperiled his conservative family and threatened to turn his daughters into pro-abortion communist homosexuals. Yes, we’re talking about the Girl Scouts. Peddling those Thin Mints is just a sinister cover. —KA
Los Angeles Times:
The Republican state representative is being roundly ridiculed for his position, even within his own party. But Morris isn’t backing down.
“My family and I took a view and we’re sticking by it,” Morris told the Associated Press this week, adding that his daughters are now members of a group for conservative Christian girls. “My girls are no longer Girl Scouts. They’re now going to join American Heritage Girls.”
Morris said he made his discoveries after talking to some knowledgeable constituents and conducting “a small amount of Web-based research.” He said the discussion and research led to his conclusions that the Girl Scouts encourage sexual activity, are a front for Planned Parenthood, and that scouts are encouraged to look up to role models who endorse feminist, lesbian and Communist agendas.
He also noted a Colorado troop’s decision to allow a transgendered boy to join, adding that the fact that First Lady Michelle Obama is honorary president of the Girl Scouts of America “should give each of us reason to pause before our individual and collective endorsement of the organization.”
