Now it's Catholic Bishops going after Girl Scouts

I hope you bought a s***load of cookies from them in their 100th year, because now it's Catholic Bishops who don't like some things the Girl Scouts do:

The Girl Scouts of the USA are now facing their highest-level challenge yet: An official inquiry by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

At issue are concerns about program materials that some Catholics find offensive, as well as assertions that the Scouts associate with other groups espousing stances that conflict with church teaching. The Scouts, who have numerous parish-sponsored troops, deny many of the claims and defend their alliances.

Is it possible Bishops are trying to gin up the conservative vote over this? They've shown little hesitation to act in an overtly political manner, and even though they still manage to get some things right, their overall record leaves something to be desired, especially for those who profess a love of God and a profound connection to Jesus.

It sounds to me more that the Bishops are adopting the Tea Party mindset that it's "my way or the highway." If that's the choice, then I'll support the Girl Scouts over U.S. Catholic Bishops any day of the week, and twice on Sunday.
