An Indiana state House representative has caused a stir for refusing to sign a resolution honoring the Girl Scouts on the occasion of the organization’s 100th anniversary.
In a letter to his colleagues, Republican Bob Morris asked the State House to rethink its endorsement of a group he says promotes abortion, homosexuality, and the sexualization of young girls.
Morris claims that “evidence” he found online led him to conclude that the Girl Scouts “is quickly becoming a tactical arm of Planned Parenthood,” and warns of “liberal progressive troop-leaders” who will “indoctrinate the girls in their troop according to the principles of Planned Parenthood.”
It gets worse.
He goes on to accuse the Girl Scouts for promoting “homosexual lifestyles” and allowing “‘transgender’ or cross-dressing” boys to join troops “just like any real girl.”
Finally, he takes issue with an alleged list of Girl Scout role models, which he claims are mostly “feminists, lesbians, or Communists,” excepting three with “a briefly-mentioned religious background.”
Morris closes by saying that in light of what he’s learned, and the fact that First Lady Michelle Obama is the Honorary President of Girl Scouts of America, he will be pulling his two daughters out of the local Girl Scouts troop, and signing them up for Little Flowers, the American Heritage Girls’ “traditional” alternative, where “they will learn about values and principles that will not confuse their conservative Hoosier upbringing.”
Morris is the only member of the Indiana state House who hasn’t signed the nonbinding Girl Scouts centennial resolution.
But wait – several other House Republicans will reportedly be taking their signatures back after reading his letter.
See why we hammer on Republicans?
