It’s that time of year again: Girl Scout cookie boycott season!
WorldNetDaily today reports on the right-wing organizations that are boycotting the Girl Scouts for such offenses as tweeting a HuffPost Live video in which someone mentioned Wendy Davis, promoting “ardent feminist” writers, marching in a gay pride parade, and incorporating “labyrinths, global warming, yoga, avatars, smudging incense, Zen gardens and lesbian role models into their teachings.”
WND has reported on a variety of activities on the part of Girl Scouts that conservatives and religious believers might find objectionable, including when the organization was found touting a pro-abortion politician.
Girl Scouts also marched in a homosexual promotion in San Francisco and were found to be removing “God” from their “Girl Scout Promise.”
They also have incorporated stone labyrinths, global warming, yoga, avatars, smudging incense, Zen gardens and lesbian role models into their teachings.
In a lesson called “Amaze: The Twists and Turns of Getting Along,” girls were taught that they should read Buddha and explore mazes and stone or dirt labyrinths – symbols rooted in pagan mythology and popular within the New Age movement as meditation tools.
They also were introduced to Polish poet Anna Swir, known for her feminist and erotic poems, and Jane Addams, an ardent feminist and pacifist.
The American Family Association sent an email to its members last week urging them to “just say, ‘No, thank you” when a girl scout comes to their door selling cookies. “It’s hard to say no to those little girls in the green and brown sashes,” writes AFA president Tim Wildmon, “but buying Girl Scout cookies serves only to further facilitate a very liberal pro-abortion agenda.”
The Family Research Council has also urged its members to boycott the cookies.
Concerned Women for America has also come out against the Girl Scouts. CWA’s Janice Shaw Crouse told WorldNetDaily, “The Girl Scouts formerly embraced the Judeo-Christian values that Americans once grew up with – love of God, love of country, treating others fairly and living wholesome lives. Now, Girl Scouts are more focused on indoctrinating girls on the so-called women’s rights agenda.”
