Family Research Council Warns that 'Radical' Girl Scouts are out to 'Get Our Kids'
The Family Research Council recently called for boycotts and prayer requests against the Girl Scouts, typically by pushing a false and misleading claim that Girl Scouts are distributing brochures from Planned Parenthood and suggesting that proceeds from Girl Scout Cookies go to the women’s health group, which is also not true.
Yesterday, FRC president Tony Perkins spoke with FRC senior fellow Cathy Ruse on Today’s Issues, the program Perkins co-hosts with American Family Association president Tim Wildmon, where Ruse attacked the Girl Scouts for hiring LGBT staff members and supporters of gay and abortion rights. Perkins explained that the reason the “progressive agenda” is targeting Girl Scouts for “liberal indoctrination” is because “they’re not having kids [and] so they want to make sure they can get our kids.” Perkins said the Girl Scouts’ decision to hire LGBT staffers, unlike the Boy Scouts which bans gays, is “like leaving the door wide open at the chicken coop for the fox”:
Ruse: They have been taken over by these radicals, and there’s no other word for them, they’ve got people on their board that are also on the board of the Human Rights Campaign and push for same-sex marriage, they’ve got people on their board that outwardly promote abortion and work in clinics on the side, it’s been taken over. The Girl Scouts’ leadership is completely now at odds with what I believe most of the families of the girls think Girl Scouts is all about.
Perkins: Folks we couldn’t make this up. Truth is stranger than fiction in this city and in this nation when we see really the progressive agenda behind this liberal indoctrination, they are going to where the kids are. They’re not having kids so they want to make sure they can get our kids, and they are going to these organizations. As you described Tim, Boy Scouts have been at the forefront of saying ‘hey look, we’re standing true to our founding values, we’re not departing from that, we’re not going to go down to this path of political correctness,’ and a lot of people think, ‘well, the Girl Scouts are probably the same way.’ In fact, it’s really like leaving the door wide open at the chicken coop for the fox.
