Guest posting today is blogger Alli Merrell …I asked her to research Girl Scout cookies, she agreed, and this is what she found! Please welcome her.
This topic is like peeling an onion–each layer exposes a different “truth”. Lots of troops DON’T follow this doctrine. Good for them. But a portion of their Girl Scout cookies sales still gets kicked to corporate, and they very clearly DO follow this doctrine.
“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.” ~Ephesians 5:11
Sales of Girl Scout cookies are under-way, and it is time to expose what the dollars that are earned from their sales really goes to.
I’ve reached out to several women I know and trust who have been involved with or are currently involved with Girl Scouts of the USA. None of these women were aware of the master plan of the WAGGGS and GSUSA agenda. Unlike Colorado’s new transgender troops, my relatively conservative mountain town has not yet experienced the symptoms of the liberal ideals espoused by the GSUSA. These women were certainly unaware that millions of dollars, including their daughter’s dues and Girl Scout cookies funds, are being paid to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts to provide for their comprehensive sexual freedom education, abortion protection, and sexual rights for youth advocacy. These mothers were not informed that their daughters were enrolled to promote “safe” sexual promiscuity, “guiltless” sexual immorality, “responsibility-free” pregnancy, “inconsequential” sexual exploration and murder of the innocent unborn.
Girl Scouts is an organization that promises to promote honesty and courage, responsibility and charity, yet the soul of the organization is Godless and vile. How can we continue support of an organization run and operated by abortionists and homosexuals intent on programming our youth to accept these atrocities as “rights?” How can we continue to encourage our children to emulate the values these pro-abortion, pro-LGBT adults actively fight to enforce? How can we offer our young girls to a society of role models who have made careers of promoting and fundraising the pro-choice, pro-homosexuality, anti-Christ movement?
As Christians, the truth is simple. We can’t. We cannot endorse an organization that has such a wretched center. We cannot commend an institution that refuses to protect parental rights and the innocence of youth. We cannot be enticed by the promises of character-building as we clearly see the wolf’s eyes peering out through the feigned fleece.

The Planned Parenthood Federation of America is signaling its intention to dominate the national sex education agenda. (Under-way for some time).

“Although I enjoyed being a Girl Scout for a short time as a young girl I had not anticipated becoming involved with the Girl Scouts again after all these years. But now I am, and it happened in an unexpected and quite disturbing way.”

Fight or Flight
“Train up a child the way the way she should go, and when she is older she will not depart from it.” ~Proverbs 22:6
As Christians and as parents it is our responsibility to ensure that our children are in the world but not of it. We are to protect their innocence and promote Godly values. We need to protect the sanctity of life and the beauty of sexual morality. We need to either take a stand and fight for real purity and honest integrity within the Girl Scouts and its chosen affiliates or we need to remove our devotion and dedication to the Godless entity.
So are your Girl Scout cookie cravings under control? What will you allow to fill your spirit, mind, and body?
“They enjoyed the sweet taste of wickedness, letting it melt under their tongue.“ ~Job 20:12

A personal note from Alli… I am a wife, mother, RN, pregnant home-pre-school teacher to two amazing toddlers. We live between a house in the mountains and on the road in our Minnie Winnie. We eat primal/paleo style and believe that Jesus is Lord of all. I’ll joyfully admit I’m not “normal.” My perspective is skewed, as the world defines it, and filtered through scripture, prayer, and reliance on the Holy Spirit.”
