This, is one among many reasons why my daughter will be going nowhere near the Girl Scouts.
“Sharon Slater, a mother of seven, innocently walked into a panel sponsored by the Girl Scouts USA at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women a few weeks ago. Almost immediately she was asked to leave. All non-Scout adults were kicked out of the room, which was packed with adolescent girls.
Her curiosity piqued, Slater lingered by the door and when the panel ended she went immediately back inside to look around. What she found has shocked her and shocked Girl Scout moms around the country. Slater found a stack of brochures produced by Planned Parenthood called “Healthy, Happy and Hot” that among other things explained to the girls, “Some people have sex when they have been drinking or using drugs. That is your choice.”
Read the whole thing at Washington Times. It will turn your stomach.
My personal opinion – It is not the Scouts’ job to teach sex ed. It isn’t the public school’s job to teach sex ed. either. It’s the parents’ job.
Too many parents are so scared of talking to their kids about sex, they more then willingly let someone else handle the discussion. But what if that “someone else”, be it the school system, the scouts, or whoever, has a different set of values?
The Bible says, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Prov 6:22) These children are God’s gift to me and my husband. They are on loan from Him, and it’s up to us to raise them, not the state, and certainly not the Girl Scouts.
Parents need to step up and get involved. Even if you don’t believe the Bible, do you really want the Girl Scouts advising your daughters on something as personal and intimate as sex?
