Quote# 86280

[Bob] Morris said he made his discoveries after talking to some knowledgeable constituents and conducting "a small amount of Web-based research." He said the discussion and research led to his conclusions that the Girl Scouts encourage sexual activity, are a front for Planned Parenthood, and that scouts are encouraged to look up to role models who endorse feminist, lesbian and Communist agendas.

He also noted a Colorado troop's decision to allow a transgendered boy to join, adding that the fact that First Lady Michelle Obama is honorary president of the Girl Scouts of America "should give each of us reason to pause before our individual and collective endorsement of the organization."

His comments were made in a letter he circulated among fellow lawmakers that was obtained by the Journal Gazette of Fort Wayne, Ind. The letter explains why Morris refused to add his name to a resolution celebrating the 100th anniversary of the scouting organization. The resolution was passed unanimously by those who chose to vote. Morris suggested that in the days ahead lawmakers will remove their names from the resolution in the wake of his revelations.

Actually, when I was a sixth-grader, there were twins, Charlie and Cathy, in my class, whose mom was a Girl Scout troop leader. Cathy was a member of her mom's troop, and so was Charlie. They were calling Girl Scouts Commies back then, but not because of that. Anybody who'd been using *this* kind of language about Girl Scouts would have wound up singing "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles", by Fels Naptha.

Web based research? Meaning he went to Free Republic and asked the bat shit insane fuckwits there what they think. After cleaning the poop off the walls and made sure they were all sedated he had enough far right, unsubstantiated opinions to confirm his bias.

Well, yeah. I mean, she's one of 'them', right? And she's got the gall to live in the 'White' House.

Racist bag of arse. Die in a fire.

No doubt Bob Morris is one of those people protesting volunteer park clean-ups, and the construction of bike paths because they have a "socialist agenda"...

I bought cookies this year specifically because I wanted to support them and their non-bigoted attitudes.

Reynardine, was Charlie male?

He does realize that every time there is a new First Lady, they are made the honorary president of the Girl Scouts. By that logic, Laura Bush supports abortion and so did Nancy Reagan.

@H4L

I'm going to assume that Charlie was a boy because it wouldn't really be any meaning to bring it up otherwise.

And if i'm right, so what? why can't the Scouts be gender equal. If you're a boy who don't like the homophobic and bigoted views of the boy scouts* but still want to be a scout what are you supposed to do?

*i don't live in the states and have had no first hand contact with the scouts but from what i've heard they don't generally approve of homosexual or atheist members. I'm not saying that all boy scouts are like this, i'm sure there are nice and tolerant people in them but it's the impression i've got.

The Girl Scouts sell cookies.

Cookies make people fat.

A not-far-from-the-truth prejudice is that fundamentalist American christians tend to be fat, if not outright American-way-of-life obese.

A logical conclusion would be that fundamentalist American christians would love the Girl Scouts, at least for their fattening cookies.

I imagine if the Girl Scouts were to sell healthy wholewheat cookies with natural non-sugar sweeteners and lots of fiber, the fundamentalist American christians would denounce them as pinko fascist marxist anti-American liberal elitist [blah, blah, blah] subversives.

Sometimes you just can't win. ;-)

Since when did McCarthyism become this popular?

Yes, Charlie was a normal boy. He was a member of the troop as a matter of convenience.

Checkmate, that picture made me splurt my coffee. Seriously, though, I doubt that could happen on a diet of fish, whole wheat bread with olive oil, and fruit - especially not while supporting a congregation with carpentry.

Reynardine, doesn't that lead to gender confusion, though?

3/4/2012 9:08:34 AM

Reynardine

Neither Charlie nor Cathy looked the least bit confused to me. We sure weren't.

What makes this even better is that even other REPUBLICANS won't take Bob Morris seriously anymore after he said this:

' The scouts and Planned Parenthood have dismissed Rep. Bob Morris' comments as absurd, as did Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma.

[...]

Morris' comments were the butt of jokes inside the House on Tuesday, with Bosma spending much of the day handing out Thin Mints to lawmakers. He joked that Morris' comments led him to buy hundreds of cases of the famous Girl Scout cookies.

"I purchased 278 cases of Girl Scout cookies in the last four hours," said a clearly sarcastic Bosma, who closed Tuesday's session by asking the former Girl Scouts in the chamber to stand up. '

Gotta love it when people can cross party lines in order to better mock an idiot.

Why do I get the sneaking suspicion that Bob is the owner of a big teenage-lesbians-in-uniform fetish and a military-strength projector...?

gay as can be

Is it just me, or does he look a lot like how many people think gay men look like?



Look at that picture and imagine the caption says he's the poster boy for gay activism week. See what I mean?

That's Bob Morris.

Re: Michelle Obama

You mean a WOMAN is an honorary leader of the GIRL Scouts?

Whatever next!

He DOES look gay! I wonder if he's in the closet.

@Matlef:

The Boy Scout leadership are a bunch of right wing homophobes. There is a non bigoted alternative called Scouting for All.

Many years ago fundies tried to take over the girl scouts and were expelled/fired etc.

They started their own group of baby bigots called American Heritage Girls

To be honest I was 90% sure my Scout Master was in a glass closet.
