St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson is urging priests to disassociate from the Girl Scouts because the organization promotes values "incompatible" with Catholic teachings. The Roman Catholic Church is concerned about the "formation of children." Read his letter HERE.
I loved Girl Scouts. I got a badge in basketmaking. I went on field trips and did Art. We did the play Cinderella and I was an ugly Stepsister.
I was always afraid in church and afraid of the Nuns and Priests. Now, I ask you, if you want to send your girl to some kind of creative weekend activity, who are you going to call?
Now, watch the same Archbishop Carlson testify he did not know kiddyraping was a crime.
"In the clip above from a recent videotaped deposition, released today, Robert Carlson, the Roman Catholic archbishop of St. Louis, claims that he didn’t always know it was a crime for adults, including priests, to have sex with children. He testifies that he’s not sure when he learned that it was illegal. He testifies that he’s not even sure he knew as far back as the 1970s that sex with children was illegal.
If this testimony is accurate, Archbishop Carlson is a moral idiot who lacked the sense to run a Boy Scout troop, much less a Catholic parish or diocese. But there is good news for the archbishop: documents released yesterday indicate that he may simply be a butt-covering coward perjurer":
