The Christian-based Family Research Council (FRC) bashed the Girl Scouts last Friday for supposedly encouraging promiscuity, abortion and child abuse.
FRC president Tony Perkins and senior fellow Cathy Ruse appeared on the group's radio show "Washington Watch" to slam the Girl Scouts for tweeting a link to a Huffington Post article, reports RightWingWatch.org (audio below).
The Huffington Post article included a video, which praised Malala Yousafzai, Beyonce Knowles and Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis (D).
Sen. Davis was responsible for a 12 1/2 hour filibuster last year that blocked a bill that would have banned abortion in cases of rape or incest after 20 weeks, noted the Dallas Morning News.
"To them abortion and sex-ed and promiscuity for very young girls is a good thing," Ruse said of the Girl Scouts. "They just have a very different mindset but they do not share the values of most American parents and the values of most people who are in the Girl Scouts. So when the Girl Scout membership begins to learn about this they find it scandalous."
However, the Girl Scouts have never publicly supported "abortion" and "promiscuity."
"There’s a reason why membership is down in the Girl Scouts, there’s a reason why cookie sales are down, because all of these things are scandalous," added Ruse. "You know, Girl Scouts now admit cross-dressing boys as little Brownie girls. It’s child abuse, frankly."
"Look at what the organization at the head wants to do with your girls and where it’s taking the organization and then people can decide what they should do," Ruse continued. "You’ve got a cross-dresser in the front office, you’ve got little boys admitted as little girls and those poor little girls in those troops have to pretend this is a girl? That’s child abuse in some people’s estimation."
Perkins then repeated a debunked myth that the Girl Scouts are "teamed up" with Planned Parenthood (audio below).
"We’re talking about the agenda that’s really behind the Girl Scouts," stated Perkins. "I guess Cathy I can understand, it makes sense for Planned Parenthood to want to be teamed up with the Girl Scouts because that’s a client base for them if they can get this information into their hands to encourage promiscuity and behavior that would lead them into Planned Parenthood clinics."
