I love girl scout cookies. Mint, peanut butter.. they are all amazing.
According to a church in Missouri, nibbling on the tasty cookies may cost me my soul. That's right, according to this catholic church, eating girl scout cookies may lead me to eternal damnation.
Per The Guardian, Archbishop Robert Carlson wrote a letter addressed to the “Priests, Scout Leaders and Faithful of the Archdiocese” claiming these delightful treats are a major part of the ethical dilemma posed by Girl Scouts USA.
The big problem? According to Carlson, WAGGGS directly and indirectly promotes abortion and contraception, or what he terms “abortion rights” and “reproductive rights,” across the age spectrum of its members. As a result he wrote:
" In a statement, it said with measured diplomacy that it looked forward “to extending our longstanding relationship with faith-based organizations, including the Catholic Church and Catholic communities throughout the country… We remain committed to building girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.”
