The homo-fixated Robert Knight, of Concerned Women for America's Culture & Family Institute is taking a look uppity young women (and the abortion-lovers and lesbos that are recruiting them). In the past he's spent an awful lot of time thinking about guys getting it on, so I guess it's our turn.
His target is the character building, wholesome, all-American organization, Girl Scouts USA. He says that the 50th annual convention in Atlanta will "showcase group's drift into radical feminism."
Dr. Johnnetta Cole, a woman whose radical views forced the Clinton administration to withdraw her name from consideration for Education Secretary, will be one of three keynote speakers at the Girl Scouts USA national convention in Atlanta from October 7-10.Since the Girl Scouts are on the Hell Express, all good sheeple should place their young women into the Cincinnati, Ohio-based American Heritage Girls (AHG), which now has troops in 32 states. Its mission:
Another speaker is Kavita Ramdas, president and CEO of the Global Fund for Women, which, among other things, promotes abortion and feminism. The third speaker is Ann Curry, news anchor for NBC’s Today Show.
The choice of the first two speakers indicates that the Girl Scouts show no sign of slowing their plunge into hard-core feminism and political advocacy, at least at the national level. The Girl Scouts still sell cookies by the millions, conduct many worthwhile community activities, and involve many families that hold traditional values. But the national organization, like many others, has been captured by a liberal elite that sometimes tips its hand.
...Some years ago, the Girls Scouts began purging materials of positive references to homemakers. Instead of being family-centered, the group now promotes "girl empowerment," with programs that focus heavily on a narcissistic devotion to self, but then steered into collective action for liberal causes, such as environmentalism.
American Heritage Girls organization is a scouting program for girls that supports the traditional values of God, Family and Country. AHG's programming promotes the Judeo-Christian values upon which our country was founded and strives to enhance the girls’ life experiences with fun-filled activities supervised by trained adults, supported by family members and implemented by members. AHG's programming provides life skills, leadership skills and character building through a traditional troop setting.Thanks to Blender Jennifer for the pointer.
..."God should not be optional in our lives or in our scouting choices," said [former Girl Scout and founder] Patti Garibay. "American Heritage Girls believes that a character building program for youth, such as scouting, demands a moral compass. AHG provides just that – a philosophical basis of Biblical truths and a continued commitment to assist girls as they grow in their relationship with Christ."
