In a 'prayer alert' today, the Family Research Council claimed that its campaign against the Girl Scouts was working: “Their cookie sales are suffering.”
Back in January, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins told followers to boycott Girl Scout cookies because the treats allegedly fund a political agenda which includes Planned Parenthood and "promoting sexual diversity."
Although the Girl Scouts have repeatedly stated that none of their cookie sales are “given to any other group," that didn't stop Family Research Council from asking for prayers against Planned Parenthood and private organizations (Girl Scouts) that are supposedly affiliated with Planned Parenthood.
The Family Research Council prayer alert says in part:
The Girl Scouts, whose leadership has been collaborating with Planned Parenthood for years, have found out and their cookie sales are suffering. This is very sensitive for the Scouts. The Scouts had better confess their errors and make a clean break while they can. Yet Planned Parenthood doesn't let its captives go easily.
May Congress expose and defund Planned Parenthood and may private organizations refuse to submit to shakedowns by Planned Parenthood and others in the abortion advocacy industry. May the Pro-life Majority grow in America until abortion has been abolished (Ex 23:2; Dt 21:1-9; 2 Kg 24:2-4 Pr 20:11; 24:11-12; Mt 27:4-6; Eph 5:11-14).
