The Girl Scouts (GSUSA) gather this week in Houston (November 8-13) to celebrate its 100th Anniversary, with a convention theme of “ Renewing the Promise: Girl Scouts in a New Century.”

The Girl Scouts’ promise to its 3.2 million members includes, among other things, the commitment to help girls “develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making.”

A quick look at the speaker lineup for its upcoming convention makes clear that the Girl Scouts are promoting not the traditional values of the original Girl Scouts, but the radical, raunchy values and relativistic decision-making of the trendy left-wing Girl Scouts.

The real theme might be described more aptly as “Reneging on the Promise: Girl Scouts Turn Left in the New Century.”

The women showcased at this year’s convention—held up as models of leadership and inspiration--reveal an agenda-driven organization. Speakers include:

Swanee Hunt, a powerful Democratic fundraiser and philanthropist with a mission to achieve “gender parity.” She has directed huge sums to homosexual and pro-abortion causes.

Annise Parker, Mayor of Houston, is a pro-abortion lesbian who presided over the opening of Houston’s new Planned Parenthood abortion center.

Marlee Matlin, an actress and LGBT supporter, is known for her portrayal of a deaf lesbian on Showtime’s “The L Word.”
