Topix Staff Feature

Buzzfeed reports that Indiana State Representative Bob Morris is declining to honor the 100th Anniversary of the Girl Scouts of America on the grounds that they are a "radical" organization. Accusing the GSA of celebrating lesbians, forming a close alliance with Planned Parenthood, and cozying up to Michelle Obama among other charges, Morris appealed to fellow House Republicans in a letter explaining his stance:

I challenge each of you to examine these matters more closely before you extend your name and your reputation to endorse a group that has been subverted in the name of liberal progressive politics and the destruction of traditional American family values.

Morris has decided to involve his own daughters in the more traditional American Heritage Girls Little Flowers organization, an outfit befitting of a "conservative Hoosier upbringing."

What do you think? Is Bob Morris right to be concerned about the GSA, or is he blowing things out of proportion?

Point number one: there is no relationship between the Girl Scouts and Planned Parenthood. They also have a long history of support for both families and the religious beliefs of individual members.

Buzzfeed, Rep Morris and Topics Politics Staff Writer all need to take a closer look at what kinds of slander they are publishing.

It has been ages since I was a Girl Scout. Frankly, I would not be disturbed to learn of a partnership of some kind with Planned Parenthood. However, in the complete and total absence of any such alliance, one has to wonder about the motives of those who are trying to invent some kind of infiltration conspiracy.

As a correlary question: I wonder if Bob Morris is believes the Catholic Priesthood is promoting pedophilia (an obsession with children as sex objects)?

Or is this a politically motivated attach on Planned Parenthood?

See, the difference is that the Boy Scouts are very open about their anti-gay policy. That's there choice and I would expect them to live with it--and any political ramifications.

The Girl Scouts actually HAVE no alliance with Planned Parenthood. This particular line of BS has been created in order to use them as a pawn in the anti-choice/anti-gay political game.

See the difference?

Which leads me to wonder... is carey529 a latent homosexual who's toremented by the conflict raging in his head? Clear case of over-compensation.

My God, if this isn't the most bizarre and aloof circumstance. The GOP has loss it's moral compass. They have actually elected insane morons to take their case to the legislator. Not only have they ranged war on American Women the idiots have included the American Girl Scouts.

Who doesn't see this as a rally point for Fascist living in America that hate our way of life?

Lets ask the repub Sheriff in Ariz if the Girl Scouts caused him to CHOOSE to be gay?

If the Girl Scouts promote homesexual behavior, call me "Le Jimnbo"

...and make sure you use the French word for "The" like the rightwing-nut poster above. For some reason he prefers French to English.

So, I gather it's your aim to see America fail? Why do you guys hate America so much?

You guys have hate for America equal to that of the Taliban and Al Qaeda.
