Video: Pro-abortion politicians mislead women about Planned Parenthood
Politicians are claiming Planned Parenthood provides essential care for pregnant women, and should be funded by our tax dollars. But are they telling the truth? Women seeking pregnancy related services contact Planned Parenthood and cannot find the health care politicians promised them. All they find is abortion.
The Archdiocese of Kansas City is not the first to sever ties with the Girl Scouts.
There’s a new commandment for Catholics: Thou Shall Not Eat Tagalongs.
The Archdiocese of Kansas City recently announced they are severing ties with the Girl Scouts. And that means no more Girl Scout cookies, too. Say goodbye to Thin Mints and Do-Si-Do’s.
The Archdiocese says Girl Scouts is no longer a compatible partner when it comes to issues like virtue and values.
The Washington Post reports that Catholics fear the Girl Scouts’ programs and materials are “reflective of many of the troubling trends in our secular culture,” and that the organization is “no longer a compatible partner in helping us form young women with the virtues and values of the Gospel.”
The Archdiocese said some of the material used in the past has been offensive, disturbing and age-inappropriate.
“Margaret Sanger, Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem are frequently held up in materials as role models for young Scouts,” Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann wrote in a statement. “These as well as many other “role models” in the GSUSA’s new manuals and web content not only do not reflect our Catholic worldview but stand in stark opposition to what we believe.”TownHall
American Heritage Girls
This week, Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann announced the transition from hosting Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) troops to chartering American Heritage Girls (AHG) Troops in the Archdiocese of Kansas City, Kansas. GSUSA troops have the opportunity to transition immediately or to allow their members to ‘graduate’ before the shift is implemented; parishes are expected to form AHG Troops, at least for the Kindergarten level (Pathfinders), in the upcoming Program Year.

Iran is using the nuclear deal money (1.7 billion) that was released with no strings attached.
Iran is using the billions in cash resources provided under the landmark nuclear deal to engage in an unprecedented military buildup meant to transform the Islamic Republic’s fighting force into an “offensive” juggernaut, according to a largely unreported announcement by Iranian military leaders that has sparked concern among U.S. national security insiders and sources on Capitol Hill.
Iranian officials announced late last month that Iran’s defense budget had increased by 145 percent under President Hassan Rouhani and that the military is moving forward with a massive restructuring effort aimed at making it “a forward moving force,” according to regional reports.
Iranian leaders have stated since the Iran deal was enacted that they are using the massive amounts of cash released under the agreement to fund the purchase of new military equipment and other armaments. Iran also has pursued multi-million dollar arms deals with Russia since economic sanctions were nixed as part of the deal. Free Beacon
