First They Came For Santa
And I said nothing. Then they came for the girl scouts and I said nothing. Then they came for me...

KNIGHT RIDDER NEWSPAPERS
People in Waco, Texas, were more than a bit taken aback after turning on a Christian radio station and hearing a community leader call for a boycott of Thin Mints and Caramel deLites.
"I encourage you to join me in abstaining from Girl Scout cookies," John Pisciotta, director of Pro-Life Waco and an associate professor of economics at Baylor University, has been saying for two weeks in public-service announcements running around the clock on KBDE/89.9.
Pisciotta then says the Waco-based Bluebonnet Council of Girl Scouts supports Planned Parenthood's annual sex education seminars.
(Cause you all know we can't have our children educated about sex! Just think what they might do!!)
Demgirl cracks me up with this reply:
As a former girl scout who sold many cookies, they've struck at the heart of one of the few remaining quality institutions for kids.
I refuse to give up my Thin Mints.
