You might not believe this but the Catholic bishops in America are now accusing the Girl Scouts of being in conflict with church teaching, and are launching an official inquiry.
Notice it’s the Girl Scouts, not the Boy Scouts, who are accused of being in conflict with church teaching. Wonder why…
Okay, that’s enough on the subject of the American bishops for a while. I find I’m in danger of fighting against rather than fight for something when I concentrate too much on the Catholic hierarchy.
And for whatever bio-chemical, cultural, personal reasons, I find that getting angry is counter-productive. I start concentrating on the wrong things, it uses up useless energy, and as far as I can see, I’ve never helped anybody, including myself, when I’m angry.
I’m not walking away from helping sisters if I can – or even the Girl Scouts. But I’m going to stop fulminating.
