Who could resist the bright and energetic young girls selling Girl Scout cookies outside the grocery stores last week?
But how many people walking away with boxes of cookies know the direction that National Girl Scouts is taking the organization these days?
It may not have infected Payson yet, but around the country, Girl Scouts supports Planned Parenthood sex programs, abortion and public funding of abortion, homosexuality, condoms and the National Organization of Women's "Fight the Right" campaign.
Buyer beware! Your cookie money may not be promoting the wholesome values you think it is.

(Editor's note: Kathy Cloninger, CEO of Girl Scouts of America, admitted an association with Planned Parenthood while being interviewed on NBC's "Today" show in March. "We partner with many organizations. We have relationships with our church communities, with YWCAs, and with Planned Parenthood organizations across the country, to bring information-based sex education programs to girls," Cloninger said.)
