I’m the second to last person in the world to defend the Girl Scouts. I have painful memories of, at age 8 or thereabouts, being coldly interrogated and rejected from a New Rochelle Brownie troop. So you may hail me (a small hail will do) for integrity in reporting this, from today’s Daily News, via AP:
Indiana pol blasts ‘radical’ Girl Scouts
A lawmaker has told fellow Republican members of the Indiana House he will not support a resolution celebrating the Girls Scouts’ centenary because he believes it is a “radicalized organization” that promotes homosexuality.
In a letter obtained by The Journal-Gazette of Fort Wayne on Monday, Rep. Bob Morris said he did some research on the Internet and found allegations that the Girl Scouts are an arm of Planned Parenthood, and allow transgender females to join.
The only radical I can spy here is Rep. Bob Morris. So maybe we’d all better continue not to spend our money in Indiana. Or on Republicans. Apparently the majority of them have been attacked by the same rabid raccoon.
