Girl Scouts Stand Tall Before Official Inquiry By Catholic Bishops

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueLegal MattersStuff 4 Kidz


The Girl Scouts have never been ones to shy away from controversy,

There was that time they accepted a 7-year-old transgender child in Colorado.

Or the time they passed out brochures to girl scouts at the U.N. that promoted safe sex.

These are issues that the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops have pounced on as cause for their official inquiry.

The inquiry coincides with the Scouts' 100th anniversary celebration.

The inquiry will be conducted to look into "possible problematic relationships the Girl Scouts have with other organizations."

We never saw the Girl Scouts as a lighting rod for controversy before, but this seems to be getting really serious!

The spokesperson for the girl scouts said:

"Our world is becoming smaller and our young people need to have those opportunities to engage with their peers from around the world."

With numbers in the Girl Scouts down to "only" 2.3 million, the group cannot afford some kind of religious exodus.

1/4 of all the scouts are Catholic.

We really hope that everyone can put their differences aside to figure out a way to allow everyone involved to be happy in the end.

Because seriously we love those peanut butter cookies!
