Morris stands by Girl Scouts criticism

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A ridiculed Indiana lawmaker is standing by his allegations that the Girl Scouts are a radical group that promotes abortions and homosexuality.

Republican Rep. Bob Morris, of Fort Wayne, told The Associated Press Tuesday that people should do more research into the 100-year-old scouting organization before accepting them as a benevolent group.

Morris' opposition became the butt of jokes inside the House Tuesday. Speaker Brian Bosma, a fellow Republican, joked that he bought 278 cases of Girl Scout cookies. Bosma spent much of the day handing out Thin Mint cookies to lawmakers.

Morris wrote a letter to House Republicans Saturday accusing the scouts of being a "tactical arm" of Planned Parenthood.

The Girl Scouts flatly denied Morris' charges. And Planned Parenthood issued a separate statement calling Morris' charges "woefully inaccurate."

@tallend62, so please do shed some light as to which research online is appropriate and trustworthy, and which is not.........I`m gonna guess that you feel anything that goes against your liberal agenda is not trustworthy.......

Rep. Morris, it doesn't work that way. We don't have to look up anything. YOU are the one who has to prove your comments are true and not a big, fat lie. Please provide us with cites proving the Girl Scouts are a wing of Planned Parenthood, are Communists, are indoctrinating children as young as five into homosexuality, are initiating young girls into sexual relations, etc., etc., ad nauseum. If you can't prove this things, then I suggest you retract your statements with a huge apology and sit down and shut up! By the way, in case you've forgotten, bearing false witness is a sin.
