Indiana Congressman Bob Morris Vs. The Girl Scouts

Undaunted by ridicule from the leader of his own party, an Indiana lawmaker is standing by his allegations that the Girl Scouts is a radical organization that promotes abortions and homosexuality. The scouts and Planned Parenthood have dismissed Rep. Bob Morris’ comments as absurd, as did Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma. But Morris, a Republican, told The Associated Press his critics need to do more research into the 100-year-old scouting organization.

      And Satan.  And Zombie Hitler.  Also, Megatron always buys a shitload of Samoas just to help out the cause.

    “american heritage girls”

    the new- all white ultra conservative female ninja army the Reichwing has been hoping for. while dressed in pilgrim’s garb they’ll astound with their displays of deadly mayflower arts like ‘plague-blanket-jutsu’ and their mastery of the slave whip!

    “Morris’ comments about the Girl Scouts came in a letter he sent to House Republicans on Saturday that said he had conducted some research on the Internet and discovered that the scouts are a “tactical arm” of Planned Parenthood.”

    Also offensive to GOP stalwarts…those lectures on stranger awareness have made it harder for the few Republicans that prefer female companionship to entrap ‘dates’.

    How far does these idiots’ spite, hatred, and insecurities go? And just how many “different” types of people are there to hate? And finally when can all us different groups realize thier hate unites us and we can vote out, boycott, and marginalize their and their supporters moronic existence.
    Gah.

    “My family and I took a view and we’re sticking to it.”
    I wonder how often this is the case behind closed doors. Pick any random moral stance from the menu, then load your family on board and let it fly into the side of a mountain at dead stick. Would explain a lot.

    As a cub scout, he was beaten up by a pack of girl scouts. He vowed eternal revenge.
