The problem with using a blog as a news source is that it often is heavy on editorial and light on facts. The brochure was for HIV positive girls. It was handed to six teens who attended a UN panel.
The blog quotes an unnamed source which tries to paint the brochure as sexually adventurous. It isn't. Here is the actual brochure:
The point about teaching abstinence, however is valid. The brochure does not encourage that, which surprised me.
Here is a link to a thread about this topic which was started yesterday.
Dale, regardless if it was 6 or 600000 this is not material that is appropriate for any girl scout organization.
I did manage to download the pdf. And it is revolting. If I found this in my home (other than in my "Oh yeah? Look at this" file) I'd have a fit. It instructs directly on how to commit mortal sin. Each page of the brochure drips with evil. There is nothing positive. The word 'abstain' does not appear in the document.
There is no excuse for this. The only acceptable response is a full public apology, and a comittment to never allow anything like this again. I'd even ask for the resignation of the person(s) responsible.
