The Girl Scouts of America announced they will allow transgender females to join troops, but conservative Christians aren’t having it.

The Girls Scouts website states:

“Girl Scouts is proud to be the premiere leadership organization for girls in the country. Placement of transgender youth is handled on a case-by-case basis, with the welfare and best interests of the child and the members of the troop/group in question a top priority. That said, if the child is recognized by the family and school/community as a girl and lives culturally as a girl, then Girl Scouts is an organization that can serve her in a setting that is both emotionally and physically safe.”

Penny Nance, the president of Concerned Women For America, clapped back at the announcement claiming it is a “slap in the face” to Christian parents.

“…This latest thing is just one more slap in the face to Christian parents,” Nance told Today’s Issues. “Now you don’t have to be a girl to a member of Girl Scouts. You can just be questioning your gender or a boy who would like to be a girl.”

 

According to Patheos.com, there’s a petition to overturn the announcement by the American Family Association (AFA) with over 35,000 signatures.
