Indiana Lawmaker Attacks 'Radicalized' Girl Scouts in Anti-Gay, Transphobic Letter to Colleagues

In an anti-gay, transphobic letter to colleagues which also attacks feminists and the Obamas, Indiana Rep. Bob Morris (R - Fort Wayne) explains why he won't be supporting a resolution honoring the 100th anniversary of the "radically pro-abortion" Girl Scouts, the Journal Gazette reports.

MorrisWrites Morris in the letter:

Many parents are abandoning the Girl Scouts because they promote homosexual lifestyles. In fact, the Girl Scouts education seminar girls are directed to study the example of role models. 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.

As members of the Indiana House of Representatives, we must be wise before we use the credibility and respect of the “Peoples’ House” to extend legitimacy to a radicalized organization. The Girl Scouts of America stand in a strong tradition that reflects with fidelity the traditional values of our homes and our families. The tradition extends from coast-to-coast and back through the past one hundred years. That said, 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 says he's having success in getting other Republican lawmakers to pull their names from the resolution. The Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana has posted a statement on their website about the group's values.

FULL LETTER (via The Journal Gazette)

February 18, 2012

Members of the Republic Caucus

Dear Fellow Representatives:

This past week I was asked to sign a House Resolution recognizing the 100th Anniversary of Girl Scouts of America. After talking to some well-informed constituents, I did a small amount of web-based research, and what I found is disturbing. The Girl Scouts of America and their worldwide partner, World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), have entered into a close strategic affiliation with Planned Parenthood. You will not find evidence of this on the GSA/WAGGGS website—in fact, the websites of these two organizations explicitly deny funding Planned Parenthood.

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. Planned Parenthood instructional series and pamphlets are part of the core curriculum at GSA training seminars. Denver Auxiliary Bishop James D. Conley of Denver last year warned parents that “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. In fact, the Girl Scouts education seminar girls are directed to study the example of role models. 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.

As members of the Indiana House of Representatives, we must be wise before we use the credibility and respect of the “Peoples’ House” to extend legitimacy to a radicalized organization. The Girl Scouts of America stand in a strong tradition that reflects with fidelity the traditional values of our homes and our families. The tradition extends from coast-to-coast and back through the past one hundred years. That said, 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.

I have two daughters who have been active in the Girl Scouts of Limberlost Council in Northeastern Indiana. Now that I am aware of the influence of Planned Parenthood within GSA and other surprisingly radical policies of GSA, my two daughters will instead become active in American Heritage Girls Little Flowers organization. In this traditional group they will learn about values and principles that will not confuse their conservative Hoosier upbringing.

I have been told that, as of today, I am the only member not supporting the Girl Scout Resolution.

I challenge each of you to examine these matters and to decide carefully whether or not to sign the resolution.

Respectfully,

Bob Morris

  3. He did a "small amount of web-based research" and his main source was "World Net Daily"?

    Is this parody? Seriously nobody is REALLY that much of an idiot, are they?

    I'm guessing when this guy was in high school and was asked to write a paper on current events, he just plagiarized a paragraph out of "Weekly World News."

    What a dope.

  4. Is he a CGI character? I knew it would happen sooner or later, but I figured California would have the first one. Certainly not Indiana.

  5. He has a website where you might let him know what you think of his email.

  10. He's younger than I expected. Usually it's the doddering old farts who come up with this level of nuttiness.

    In other pictures he looks very Eddie Munster-ish. http://photos.indystar.com/photos/2011/2/22/455188/inline.jpg

  11. The integration of equal opportunities into an organisation takes place at many levels. at the heart is the idea that learners and our people should be able to work and study in an environment where they feel safe, respected and listened to regardless of their backgrounds or personal attributes, and where they can be confident to speak out and know they will be herd. there needs to be mechanisms by which they discuss key issues relating to their experiences as a transgender and feel confident this will lead to action

  12. I was speaking to a Mormon lady about why her daughters didn't join girl scouts (the boys are in boy scouts) and she said that their church (LDS) did not support the girl scouts as they were an anti-God/anti-Family organization that promotes the sexualization of young girls and allowed no place for girls to be "just girls".

    We spoke at length on the subject. I guess the Mormons came up with their own version of the girl scouts, whereas they've pretty much taken over the boy scouts.

    Mormons are much more strict, yet more secretive than Catholics. People think Mitt Romney will be one way (moderate) when in fact they use their position to further their Church's agenda.

    I'm very anti-sexualizing of young girls. As a mom of two...I totally see it. Go to any store with kids clothes. Little boys still dress like they did in the 70's. Girls clothing today looks like the high school kids clothing of the 1980's. Its so sad that we won't let them just...be kids for as long as possible.

    However, I feel that the Girl Scouts does allow that. They're in there crafting up a storm, making things, visiting elderly people...

    I'm glad my kids are in scouts.

  17. I'd like to introduce a resolution which, if passed, would designate a representative Girl Scout to publicly kick Bob Morris in the nuts.
