Indiana Rep Calls Girl Scouts 'Radicalized'

An Indiana lawmaker won't support a resolution celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts because he believes it is a "radicalized organization" that supports abortion and promotes homosexuality.

Rep. Bob Morris of Fort Wayne has sent a letter to fellow Indiana House Republicans explaining why he opposes the nonbinding resolution.

The Journal Gazette reported Monday that Morris said he found online allegations that the Girl Scouts are a tactical arm of Planned Parenthood, encourage sex and allow transgender females to join. He also wrote that the fact that first lady Michelle Obama is honorary president should give lawmakers pause before they endorse the Girl Scouts.

Spokeswoman Ashley Sharp of the Girl Scouts of Northern Indiana-Michiana says it's aware of negative websites but says they haven't affected the group.
