Girls Scouts, New Age, and Wicca

The Girl Scouts' new radicalism: source

The Girl Scouts of the USA have been on a steady, well-documented leftward slide for many years. (More on that later.) But this summer, the organization is about to take a giant leap even further in that direction.

The GSUSA is introducing a new "Girl Scout Leadership Experience," essentially a new curriculum, titled "Journeys."

In August, the GSUSA is inviting girls to "explore climate change as it relates to environment, community and the global community." They will meet with experts "to explore the issue of global climate change" and "come up with action plans to...make a difference in [their] own community."

The blueprint for this new curriculum came from the Girl Scouts Arizona Cactus-Pine Council, which decided they needed to be "re-founded." To oversee the process, they naturally hired facilitators -- in this case, from the Ashland Institute, a consulting group with a distinctly New Age bent. The Board of Directors and the Arizona Cactus-Pine Council went into a special retreat. After engaging in a "collective reflective process called Open Space,"
So the Arizona Cactus-Pine Council forged ahead to find a place where "preteens and teens learn to hear and trust their own inner guidance."

Here's one of the Girl Scouts' new values: "Girls learn to quiet themselves, taking 'full stop moments' where they can connect with a silence that is perfect and pure, an internal blank canvas....The girls 'find their own compass' through a model that starts looking within to find their purpose, values and vision and ends with clear strategies, action and planning."

Here's "The Girl Scout Promise," according to the GSUSA website:

"On my honor, I will try:To serve God* and my country,To help people at all times,And to live by the Girl Scout Law."

The asterisk is explained at the bottom of the page: "The word 'God' can be interpreted in a number of ways, depending on one's spiritual beliefs. When reciting the Girl Scout Promise, it is okay to replace the word 'God' with whatever word your spiritual beliefs dictate."

"But getting back to being anti-God, there is the matter of the "Covenant of the Goddess." It's a Wiccan website which, among other things, describes their awards program. There's the "Over the Moon Award" for ages 8-11 and the "Hart and Crescent Award" for ages 12-18. The awards are offered "to any young person...who is a member of any nature-oriented religion (Wicca, Druid, Asatru, Native American, etc.)." What does this have to with the Girl Scouts? The Girl Scouts recognize these awards, which may be worn on the Girl Scout uniform.
re: "Journeys" and 'inner guides'

What do the Girl Scouts, schools and colleges, and the emerging church, have in common?
The same 'climate change' indoctrination/brainwashing to train 'community-dwelling' leaders, and the same pushing of new age 'spirituality' to incorporate the Scouts/students into the coming global interspiritual religion....which is exactly the same thing that the so-called emerging church promoters are doing in churches and youth groups across the land. As a matter of fact, the manipulation is absolutely everywhere.
This is extremely dangerous territory the Scouts are being led into. Know any Girl Scouts, or parents of? It's time to bail out...not to mention the obvious in regards to apostate emerging churches.
They've moved all the lines.

also: youth global interspiritual-day
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing ; and I will receive you. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Cor. 6:17-18)
