John-in-KC posted a topic in Issues & PoliticsThe Archbishop of St Louis is not happy about the values of Girl and Boy Scouting Two paragraphs... "St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson has issued a letter calling on parishes to seek alternatives to Girl Scouts, arguing that the program and related organizations conflict with Roman Catholic teaching." "Carlsonâ€™s letter further references concerns with the Boy Scouts of America, wondering â€œin which direction this once trusted organization is now headedâ€ in terms of protections to religious organizations."
While canoeing a couple of junior Girl Scouts through flooded savannah, between sawgrass, and toward a white crane, letting them dip their hands in the water (because that's what crazy great uncles heedless of snakes and gators do), I once again heard the refrain "Boy Scouts are more fun than Girl Scouts." These two have slightly older brothers so they've been to pack events and have seen the oldest come back from troop events. Of course that was while canoeing downwind. After having to work and slog upwind, they may have given me a different opinion if they weren't so tired! I don't propose to understand the nuances in GSUSA culture, but either there is something about the young female mind that is wired to say the grass is greener, or the field they are in needs to be reseeded!
