Question at the right-wing message board:
My 7-year-old daughter recently asked if she could join the Brownies like some of her friends... Any parents have any experience with the modern Brownies? Have they completely adopted the Progressive agenda?Some answers:
The Brownies raise money for Girl Scout funds that donate to Planned Parenthood. I will never allow my daughter to join for that reason.
I have not had any problems with liberalism and this organization so far... I did get a flier in the mail and it said something about "it takes a village to raise a child". I threw it out.
The simple answer is that these groups are not the trusted organizations of days-gone-by as many "progressive" groups have hijacked them for indoctrination purposes.
Even 20 years ago there was a heavy lesbian influence... Stop politicizing our children!
They're switching from Godly to pro-gay and pro-abortion. Stay away. Join a church-based group instead.
They took 'God' out of their pledge and have included lesbian lifestyle acceptance in some of the older girl's badge work.
I don't know if it is still the case, but a few years ago, the rainbow was used almost equally with the old Girl Scout trefoil as a symbol of Girl Scouting.
To give you an idea how the organization was overall, they had no problem of giving our troop the number 666. We changed that immediately, of course.
