Kansas City Archdiocese Breaking Ties with Girl Scouts

Young girls used to learn quite a bit from the Girl Scouts. At some point though, the leaders of the Girl Scouts became left-wing activists and changed the organization for the worse.

Other groups that the Girl Scouts have worked with are now severing ties with the organization because of their teachings.

This includes the Archdiocese of Kansas City, who has sent a notice saying they will sever ties with the Girl Scouts and now support the American Heritage Girls, a Christian-based organization very similar to the Girl Scouts, but without Planned Parenthood or the leftism.

Via Kansas City Star:

“I have asked the pastors of the Archdiocese to begin the process of transitioning away from the hosting of parish Girl Scout troops and toward the chartering of American Heritage Girls troops,” Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann said in a statement released Monday.

“Pastors were given the choice of making this transition quickly, or to, over the next several years, ‘graduate’ the scouts currently in the program. Regardless of whether they chose the immediate or phased transition, parishes should be in the process of forming American Heritage Girl troops, at least for their kindergartners, this fall.”

Some parents aren’t too happy about the switch because they’ve been involved with Girl Scouts for a long time. It’s interesting since Planned Parenthood has partnered with Girl Scouts – and abortion is against the Catholic religion.

The action has angered some Girl Scout leaders and parents in the archdiocese, who say Girl Scouts is a respected program that helps raise strong girls who become good stewards. They call the move punitive and unfair and say it treats girls in their troops like second-class citizens.

“This is frustrating; parents are very irritated,” said Maria Walters, a former Girl Scout leader in the archdiocese and mother of two Girl Scouts. “I feel we should all be together as one in the community. This does nothing but divide us.”

This is important because it shows that organizations should offer a better solution that is more aligned with their own teachings. This is something they should have done the moment Girl Scouts decided that Planned Parenthood would make a good partner.

Hopefully many others will take their lead.
