Catholic group goes after Girl Scouts
Skeeve
Because they are basically all inclusive and leave personal choices up to the individual, the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute is against them.

(NEW YORK – C-FAM) The World Association of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides hosted a no-adults-welcome panel at the United Nations this week where Planned Parenthood was allowed to distribute a brochure entitled “Healthy, Happy and Hot.” The event was part of the annual United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) which concludes this week.

The brochure, aimed at young people living with HIV, contains explicit and graphic details on sex, as well as the promotion of casual sex in many forms. The brochure claims, “Many people think sex is just about vaginal or anal intercourse… But, there are lots of different ways to have sex and lots of different types of sex. There is no right or wrong way to have sex. Just have fun, explore and be yourself!” The brochure goes on to encourage young people to “Improve your sex life by getting to know your own body. Play with yourself! Masturbation is a great way to find out more about your body and what you find sexually stimulating. Mix things up by using different kinds of touch from very soft to hard. Talk about or act out your fantasies. Talk dirty to them.”


Completely made up story. Lying for Christ is always acceptable.

I think this is what pisses them off most:

Flexibility in Wording for Spiritual Beliefs in the Girl Scout Promise
Girl Scouts of the USA makes no attempt to define or interpret the word “God” in the Girl Scout Promise. It looks to individual members to establish for themselves the nature of their spiritual beliefs. When making the Girl Scout Promise, individuals may substitute wording appropriate to their own spiritual beliefs for the word “God.”


Place of Religion in the Girl Scout Program
Girls are encouraged and helped through the Girl Scout program to become better members of their own religious group, but every Girl Scout group must recognize that religious instruction is the responsibility of parents and religious leaders.

If you're going to use the day/month/year format, it's best to use periods rather than slash marks (e.g., 8.5.10), and better yet, to use a Roman numeral for the month (e.g., 8.V.10). That way, there is no ambiguity. That's the way hams do it, and it makes a lot of sense. I have to think hard to use the standard American month/day/year format, and I agree, it's counter-intuitive.

It seems to me that we'd always written the date as either month/day/year or spelled out as May 9, 2010. Now I see the date written all kinds of ways and it's hard to tell which I'm reading right anymore.

I prefer month/day/year, but I guess just because it's what I was used to for about 50 years.
