Why Our Family Won't Be Purchasing Girl Scout Cookies Anymore...

Confession: I love certain Girl Scout Cookies. You know...the mint ones and the ones that have caramel and coconut covering them. But I will be buying them no more...

Here is why:

WHAT the HECK??!!!

I was horrified after the second paragraph and downright nauseated after that.

My gosh. Is every single thing that was once good and pure in our country being completely tainted by sin? Sure looks that way. God help us.

No more GS cookies for me either, friend. :(

Yes, we gave up on Girl Scouts years ago, but duh - didn't think of not buying cookies! Apparently this organization has been hijacked by ... well, you know. :-(
(I think the Boy Scouts are still okay - sorry no cookies, tho)

Oh my goodness! I knew they had removed all reference to God and I knew they had allowed homosexual troop leaders, even on overnight trips. But I had no idea it was this far gone! We have started a new chapter of American Heritage Girls at LCS and if you were interested in Girl Scouts at all this is the way to go. AHG is Christ centered and Bible based. www.ahgonline.org is their website and you'll be able to find a troop near you.

Thank you for posting this.

I did not check out the link but did quickly skim your responses and now I will probably have to check out the link!

FYI- the Ore*s- mint double stuff will help you out- they're my new fav!!

Wow. I am shocked. Had considered GD for my girlies, but didn't want another activity this year. It's out for sure now!

Horrible and nauseating! No more GS cookies in this house.

sadly the GSs have been extremely liberal for quite a while. Not the same organization I loved being part of as a young girl!

Angie said...

And here I thought you were going to joke about eating a whole box of cookies by yourself, or something. That's just sick! I wasn't buying any because of the price, but now there's no way I'll support that garbage!

I didn't even know they had allowed lesbian leaders! Definately "not your mother's GS'S"! So sad for all the girls who really need role models and activities after school.

Holly said...

Shocked. Horrified.
OH my word.

Jackie said...

YOU'VE...GOT...TO...BE...KIDDING...ME???

Done with the cookies...check! I loved those suckers, too!

Jodi said...

Ugh.
WHAT is this world COMING to???

James, Dawn and Family said...

OMG...I'm totally shocked. I'm terrified to even think about the girls going out into the real world.

Sharon said...

Karin, I was late in reading this, but I am totally disgusted!!! There will be no more girl scout cookies here either. I had NO idea this was going on!

Grace said...

I checked them out when Anna wanted to join a long time ago. We were shocked at what we found out back then.

But, I have been know to purchase cookies sometimes. Never again!!For some reason I was thinking I was supporting the girl selling the cookies rather than the organization.
