As you’ve do doubt heard, the former “Boy Scouts” has changed its name to “Scouts” so they can include girls.

In today’s society “political correctness” is merely a lovely word for fascism, bullying and waging war on children’s God-given right to innocence and embracing their own gender.

At any rate, if you’re fed up with the Boy Scouts Scouts, you wouldn’t be alone. It’s been reported that the Scouts saw a 425,000 drop in membership in response to their decision. They took their biggest hit when the Mormon Church cut ties to the organization.

If you want to send a message in terms of membership numbers, there are alternatives. Mind you, many of these alternatives are for both boys and girls, but they always have been, They’re not pushing a political agenda at the expense of children.

BTW-The Girl Scouts are unhappy about the Boy Scouts decision, which they feel will lure away their members. However, they are not off the hook in terms of the moral high ground either. Did you know that the Girl Scouts have ties to Planned Parenthood?

That’s right. That’s why Archbishop Joseph Naumann severed ties with the Girl Scouts. He states:

Planned Parenthood…”contributes more than a million dollars each year to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGS), an organization tied to International Planned Parenthood and its advocacy for legislation that includes both contraception and abortion as preventive health care for women.

[Abortion promoters] Margaret Sanger, Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem are frequently held up in materials as role models for young Scouts. These as well as many other “role models” in the GSUSA’s new manuals and web content not only do not reflect our Catholic worldview but stand in stark opposition to what we believe.”

So much for yummy cookies. Anyway, here’s some options to investigate and share. Bear in mind that these are not recommendations or endorsements. Contact the organization-especially local chapters- for more info.
