The archdiocese covering the Kansas City, Kansas, region and much of the eastern part of the state said Monday it is severing ties with Girl Scouts and urging an end to cookie sales, citing philosophical concerns with the organization.
The Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas announced in a statement that Girl Scouts is 'no longer a compatible partner in helping us form young women with the virtues and values of the Gospel,' The Kansas City Star reported.
The archdiocese said it is switching its support to a 22-year-old, Christian-based scouting program, American Heritage Girls.

One word for the American Heritage Girls...
Good, now please do the same with the Boy Scouts
I’m saying good too but oh my goodness people are cranky about this. It will build. I need more specific stuff to respond with. I’ve been researching. The nationals are saying its up to the locals whether they bring in PP. I don’t know. Seems if it is locals then the archdiocese can make it clear to each parish not to bring in PP. But then one of the parishes we are looking at where we’re moving (still in same archdiocese) is so liberal that they don’t even use Catholic materials for bible study.
A few years ago, when my oldest daughter was a bit younger, we tried girls scouts.
There was no abortion or political talk, but there was a lot of emotive, feel-good nonsense, and then the big deal about the cookie sale. Afterwards, they went to the mall and had a “build-a-bear” party. It all seemed rather empty, commercial, and stupid, and the cookie sales were annoying. We stopped after 1 season.
Remove real character formation and values from any organization, and at best, you wind up with empty fluff, at worst, its a vacuum to be filled by the worst kind of stuff
It’s about time
However --- concerning the GSA´s ties to Planned Parenthood and other global abortion enthusiasts ---- even if the local troop is morally untainted, part of their dues goes to headquarters and subsidizes a corrupt leadership.
So if the local troop is good, they should disaffiliate with GSA and, if desired, sign up with a non-leftist alternative. You can google these:
American Heritage Girls
Keepers of the Faith
Reality check - the Girl Scouts have devolved into a cookie sales force exploited by a National Organization full of "progressive" ideology, six figure salaries, luxury offices and grand retirement payouts.
When my wife and I severed ties with the ‘too-liberal’ Girl Scouts, it didn’t make the news. We did it several years ago.
Even the thin mints now taste like crap
I haven’t purchased any Girl Scout cookies for over 30 years.
Good for them!
The cookies are over-priced and the packages keep getting smaller. You can find the same cookies on the market at lower prices under different brand/store names.
So true. Crap on a cracker.
Good that there are Catholics in authority who still hold to the faith.
Wal-Mart has knockoffs of the GS cookies that are just as good and way cheaper anyway.
