Thoughtful Thursday---Why I don't buy Girl Scout Cookies.


Now, honestly I could say the last thing I need as a chubby diabetic is yummy cookies laying around the house. It would be true.

I could also mention that at $4 a box, my budget definitely does not them either!

Neither is the real reason I don't purchase Girl Scout cookies, however.

I don't buy them because I don't want to support teaching our daughters a liberal, feminist, pro-abortion agenda.

There it's out!

Here are some articles you can read to understand where I'm coming from:

An informative site is 100 Questions for the Girl Scouts which was started by the president of Family Watch International.

Please know that when a little Girl Scout asks me to buy cookies, I don't jump back, make a cross with my fingers, and shout, "Back you midget whore of Babylon." I just politely say no thanks. 

After all, it's their parents who need educated. So, it's the parents I take aside, grab by the shoulders, and while shaking them firmly, shout, "Stop turning your daughter into a femi-nazi, anti-christ!" 

Okay, I don't do that either.

But sometimes I wish I could.

Stopping by (sorry, I got very distracted by a very sleepy 5yo this morning). I absolutely agree with your post entirely! I've resisted putting the girls in girl scouts for many of the same reasons. However, I am looking for something that I can get behind and they'll enjoy.

I agree. The only cookies I like are the Thin Mint and I found some Arnott's that I like much better.

I know several people sending their daughters to American Heritage Girls instead of Girl Scouts. Their site is http://www.ahgonline.org/

God Bless!

I feel the same way. I was horrified when I found out about their involvement with the Girl Scouts. That's one more wholesome activity ruined by liberalism. Stopping over from Modest Mondays

I just skimmed the articles you linked to, but WOW! I was in Girl Scouts as a kid, and I don't remember any of this kind of stuff happening (and that was only 20 years ago -- things are deteriorating incredibly fast). This is terrible. Thank you for sharing.
