Indiana’s Water and Lesbian Girl Scouts. Who Knew?   Leave a comment

The Nelsons, the Cleavers, and Mike Morris Are Alive And Well And Living In Indiana

February 22, 2012

So just what is in the water in Indiana? Since weather patterns move across multiple states, and food is brought to local stores from around the world,  neither is likely to be the cause of a collective loss of intelligence in the Hoosier state. Water, however, is almost always acquired locally, and it’s starting to look like H2O must be the common source for the stupidity and insanity found regularly in the state. Hell, what else could it be? Case in point.

This month another politician decided to pontificate ala Doctor Phil or Jerry Springer. State Representative Bob Morris (Republican of Indiana, not to be confused with Dick Morris, Philip Morris, William Morris, or Morris the Cat) made a valiant attempt to win lunatic of the month and he almost made it. Here is what passes as an attempt at solving the real problems in America.  Mr. Morris took time in February 2012 (note: not 1912 mind you, but 2012) to offer the following, in writing, for public consumption. (FYI, the full text is available from an Indianapolis media website.) Here are some excerpts:

. . . abundant evidence proves that the agenda of Planned Parenthood includes sexualizing young girls through the Girl Scouts, which is quickly becoming a tactical arm of Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood instructional series and pamphlets are part of the core curriculum at GSA training seminars. Denver Auxiliary Bishop James D. Conley of Denver last year warned parents that “membership in the Girl Scouts could carry the danger of making their daughters more receptive to the pro-abortion agenda. 

A Girl Scouts of America training program last year used the Planned Parenthood sex education pamphlet “Happy, Healthy, and Hot.” The pamphlet instructs young girls not to think of sex as “just about vaginal or anal intercourse.” “There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!” it states.  Although individual Girl Scout troops are not forced to follow this curriculum, many do.   Liberal progressive troop-leaders will indoctrinate the girls in their troop according to the principles of Planned Parenthood, making Bishop Conley’s warning true. . . . Many parents are abandoning the Girl Scouts because they promote homosexual lifestyles.

Mr. Morris accomplished all of this amazingly deep research not by pouring through stacks of material published by Planned Parenthood; and not by painstakingly speaking with Girl Scout leaders across Indiana. Here’s how Bob Morris came to the conclusion that Planned Parenthood was conspiring to turn innocent little girl scouts into rabid lesbians or abortion proponents: “After talking to some well-informed constituents, I did a small amount of Web-based research, and what I found is disturbing,” Morris wrote Saturday to Republican House colleagues in a letter obtained by the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette.” Mr. Morris, that is not how research is done. You might have been more believable had you quoted Wikipedia, or perhaps The Bowling News.

OK  Let’s take a look at some of Bob Morris’s assertions and make comments of our own:

1. “abundant evidence proves.” Comment: There’s no evidence cited here. In fact, Mr. Morris’s abundant evidence appears to be the aforementioned “small amount of web research.”

2. “the agenda of Planned Parenthood includes sexualizing young girls through the Girl Scouts.” Comment: More small amounts of web-based research?

3. “Planned Parenthood instructional series and pamphlets are part of the core curriculum at GSA training seminars.” Comment: Really? And it took you to uncover this plot? Perhaps you had a séance with the late Margaret Sanger?

4. “Auxiliary Bishop James D. Conley of Denver  last year warned parents that “membership in the Girl Scouts could carry the danger of making their daughters more receptive to the pro-abortion agenda”. Comment: Like Morris before him, the Bishop—no doubt like many priests, an authority on the potential corruption of minors—offers no evidence.

5. A Girl Scouts of America training program last year used the Planned Parenthood sex education pamphlet ‘Happy, Healthy, and Hot’. The pamphlet instructs young girls not to think of sex as ‘just about vaginal or anal intercourse.’ ‘There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!’ it states.” Comment: The above comes not from a pamphlet for Girl Scouts or other underage girls. Hello . . . It’s a pamphlet for young women living with HIV.

6. “Many parents are abandoning the Girl Scouts because they promote homosexual lifestyles.” Comment: In my view the Girl Scouts seem to be promoting an inclusive society, not the us and them society preferred by Morris and other Republicans. The Girl Scouts of America has not been working at the conversion of young girls to a homosexual lifestyle.

7. In fact, the Girl Scouts education seminar girls are directed to study the example of role models. Of the fifty role models listed, only three have a briefly mentioned religious background – all the rest are feminists, lesbians, or Communists. World Net Daily, in a May 2009 article, states that Girl Scout Troops are no longer allowed to pray or sing traditional Christmas Carols. Comment: The good Bishop and Mr. Morris make me wonder what litmus test will be next.

There’s one last part of Mr. Morris’s comments that needs to be addressed. He added, “As members of the Indiana House of Representatives, we must be wise before we use the credibility and respect of the ‘Peoples’ House’ to extend legitimacy to a radicalized organization.” Be careful, Mr. Morris, when you refer to something as “the People’s House”. By definition, it does not only belong to the people of Indiana that you like and agree with. It belongs to all of the people of Indiana; Straight, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, Pro-choice, and Anti-abortion.

There you have it, and I’ve learned something new this month. It’s become clear to me that one, some, or many Republicans must believe that Thin Mints cause girls to leap into a lesbian lifestyle. Who knew?
