What I will not write about today: News stories, links, and snarkitude

Share

frustrated35Sometimes I get so frustrated and/or disheartened and/or annoyed by some of the news stories of the day that I can’t bring myself to write about them. Here are a few recent reports that made my blood pressure hit the roof. I am avoiding delving into them at length out of concern for my physical and mental health.

UPDATE: Yessss!

Homophobe Lawmaker Who Blasted Girl Scouts Gets Only 1 Donation Since

Share

I'm betting Mr Morris knows the bible pretty well, and I'm sure he's heard this- "Reap and ye shall sow".

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — An Indiana lawmaker who drew criticism for calling the Girl Scouts a radical group that promotes abortions and homosexuality has received only one campaign contribution in the months since that controversy.

The Journal Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/JuPIjM ) Rep. Bob Morris' latest campaign finance report shows that between Jan. 1 and April 13 the Fort Wayne Republican raised $5,000 in a single donation from the Northeast Indiana PAC for Better Government.

Morris now has about $19,000 on hand. He's facing Democrat Lee Jordan in the fall but Indiana's online campaign finance database had not yet posted Jordan's latest report.

 I always love watching Lizz; the entire panel nailed it.

Below is the letter explaining why Indiana State Rep. Bob Morris (R-Fort Wayne) is against honoring the Girl Scouts on their 100th anniversary:

Nonetheless, abundant evidence proves that the agenda of Planned Parenthood includes sexualizing young girls through the Girl Scouts, which is quickly becoming a tactical arm of Planned Parenthood... “membership in the Girl Scouts could carry the danger of making their daughters more receptive to the pro-abortion agenda.” 

A Girl Scouts of America training program last year used the Planned Parenthood sex education pamphlet “Happy, Healthy, and Hot.” The pamphlet instructs young girls not to think of sex as “just about vaginal or anal intercourse.” “There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!” it states. Although individual Girl Scout troops are not forced to follow this curriculum, many do. Liberal progressive troop-leaders will indoctrinate the girls in their troop according to the principles of Planned Parenthood, making Bishop Conley’s warning true.

Many parents are abandoning the Girl Scouts because they promote homosexual lifestyles... Of the fifty role models listed, only three have a briefly-mentioned religious background—all the rest are feminists, lesbians, or Communists. World Net Daily, in a May 2009 article, states that Girl Scout Troops are no longer allowed to pray or sing traditional Christmas Carols. Boys who decide to claim a “transgender” or cross-dressing life-style are permitted to become a member of a Girl Scout troop, performing crafts with the girls and participate in overnight and camping activities — just like any real girl. The fact that the Honorary President of Girl Scouts of America is Michelle Obama, and the Obama’s are radically pro-abortion and vigorously support the agenda of Planned Parenthood, should give each of us reason to pause before our individual or collective endorsement of the organization.

Here is the entire letter:

What a radical group of unAmerican heathens. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to buy a few hundred boxes of Girl Scout cookies.
