Scout Leaders Disband Troops After Girl Scouts Allow Transgender Child to Join
We told you in October about Bobby Montoya, the 7-year-old transgender girl who was denied admission into a Denver Girl Scouts troop “because he has boy parts” – their words, not ours. When mom Felisha Archuleta held a press conference asking what the big deal was, the Girl Scouts of America shocked us all with their response.
The GSA replied that of course Bobby was welcome to join!
“Girl Scouts is an inclusive organization. If a child identifies as a girl and the child’s family presents her as a girl, Girl Scouts of Colorado welcomes her as a Girl Scout. Our requests for support of transgender kids have grown, and Girl Scouts of Colorado is working to best support these children, their families, and the volunteers that serve them.”
Amazing! Inspiring! A very welcome surprise!
But what’s this now?
Susan Bryant-Snure is one of the leaders who resigned. She has three daughters among the 25 girls who had been active scouts there.
Bryant-Snure told Baptist Press that the Girl Scouts’ action is “extremely confusing” and an “almost dangerous situation” for children. “This goes against what we (Northlake Christian School) believe,” she said.
Northlake is now looking into aligning with American Heritage Girls, a nonprofit “dedicated to the mission of building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country. The organization offers badge programs, service projects, girl leadership opportunities and outdoor experiences to its members.”
AHG was formed in 1995, in part over the Girl Scouts’ decision to allow scouts to substitute another word or phrase for “God” in their promise.
That’s right, three troops in Louisiana have disbanded because a 7-year-old transgender girl in Colorado was made to feel welcome and accepted.
What a terrible example of intolerance these troop leaders are sending to their young wards.
Keep your chin up, Bobby! We’re rooting for you!
