Was The Kansas City, Kansas Bishop Right To Toss Girl Scouts And Their Cookies?!?!

We blogged this one earlier but the ensuing news coverage has fallen into the typical culture war media slap fight. It's easy to sympathize with Girl Scouts but maybe the amicable parting of ways isn't such a bad idea amid competing ideologies about Planned Parenthood and transgender issues that might leave a bad aftertaste for many of the faithful whilst offering an important lesson for young ladies about politics and how the cookie crumbles . . . Also, some of the bad puns in the MSM coverage kinda hints at the overall importance of this talk show issue:

Kansas City Archdiocese parts ways with Girl Scouts because it reflects 'troubling trends'

"With the promotion by Girl Scouts USA of programs and materials reflective of many of the troubling trends in our secular culture, they are no longer a compatible partner in helping us form young women with the virtues and values of the Gospel," Naumann wrote.

First Galileo then the Girl Scouts... think right or else.

Isn't the molestation of children by Catholic priests a "troubling trend?" Let me know when you get that straightened out. When the church starts wondering, like it always does, where did our youth go? There's your answer.

he may be right but there are bigger, more important battles to fight first.

This is a classic example of what media whores are like. The Archdiocese could have just stop having anything to do with the Girl Scouts without all the statement giving baloney, but no they had to seek out attention to what they were doing. Rather I support in anyway the Girl or Boy Scouts is a private matter which doesn't need to be known by anyone other than myself. In my opinion both organizations have been ruined and destroyed by the, Up Your Ass PC Correct Snowflakes, just like they have everything else.

Listen to Simple Dave on this one... He knows exactly what a media whore looks like! And how do you know so much about the Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts?

The diocese probably played this one correctly. Yeah, they have HUGE and despicable internal issues they need to deal with (and haven't yet), but the public announcement concerning the girls scouts wasn't intended for the general public. It was designed to catch the attention of their membership, who have likely been complaining due to the philosophical differences and have been pushing for this (and who, so far, have stuck by the church throughout their molestation scandals). The church is doing what those who continue to give money to them want to be done, they're simply protecting their bottom line. The fact that they announced it to general public was just to make sure that their membership REALLY knew how serious they were about it.

Um,why I am not surprised at all the Boy Scouts are welcome? The Catholic Church and the Boy Scouts do share a common interest..

The Church is ridiculous. They should be more concerned with cleaning up their OWN house than worrying about an organization that supports little girls.

10:14 you kiss your momma with that mouth? She should slap the shit out of you for being such a Byron wannabe asshole.
Super Dave is right if they want to do something just do it and forgo all the media limelight. So tired of church's thinking they need to force their views on us when they have tenfold their own issues to deal with.

Church's now days are a joke. It is true the snowflakes have ruined our youth. Girls want to be boys and boys want to be girls. Only a sick society would allow a child to say I am not what I appear to have been born as and now you have to make restrooms safe for me to enter whichever gender I want to be that day. The media is to blame for a lot of this hype that kids think is the new cool thing to do.

How about this? Anyone can be anyone they want to be and can do whatever they want with whoever. Throw all laws about sex away and lets go back to being a nation minus, hell lets go for broke and eliminate all the laws and see how well you fruitcakes like that?

Wat did the girl scouts do? It is silly to make a big fussy show of excommunicating the cookies AND the horse they rode in on, raise awareness by shittin on thin mints , c'mon church it's a pussy move

^^^Hey gramps, you lost? This was an article about the Catholic church and the Girl Scouts, not a transgender issue. Did you just want to say "snowflake," cause your rambling screed was largely incoherent. "Lets go back to a nation minus" Minus what exactly? Go sell your ignorance and hatred elsewhere shit-flake. Nobody is buying it here.

Catholics have a church and religion to manage. If the Girls Scouts don't like it they can get the fuck out. Fucking whiner libtard press.

Intellectually challenged: See 3:24 p.m. The church kicked the Girl Scouts to the curb, smart man, not the other way around. And the catholics do have a whole lot to manage, such as where to transfer the next kiddie rapist. Keep tithing though, as I'm sure it will get you to "heaven".

I couldn't tell you the last time I bought cookies from an actual Girl Scout. It's always their parents selling them at work, with the Girl Scout nowhere to be seen.

Never eaten any Girl Scout cookies that were very good. I used to eat Brownies now and then, very fresh and delicious.

Uh, it's not only creepy clergy and pedo priests, y'all. I googled "kc teacher sex scandals" and more than a few news reports from very recent years are easily found of pervy public school personnel! Plus, men and women in our military have reported on icky islamists who nasty with little kids. Look up bacha bazi, and bacha posh. Eeewwww.
