"On the heels of" means "following a story World Nut Daily published on 17 May 2009". It seems that two years is "on the heels of" according to World Nut Daily.They then bring up groups like the Catholic "Little Flowers Girls Club", and the GSA off-shoot "American Heritage Girls". I've read about AHG before. Basically AHG is a group founded in 1995 by people upset that the Girl Scouts were being more inclusive about things like sexuality and religion at the same time the Boy Scouts of America were being exclusive. Result:
"Proof of the strong links can be found by looking no further than the statements of Girl Scout CEO Kathy Cloninger, who told NBC's "Today" show in an interview in 2004: "We partner with many organizations. We have relationships with our church communities, with YWCAs, and with Planned Parenthood organizations across the country, to bring information-based sex education programs to girls."There's additional documentation in printed materials provided by the Girl Scouts, although the statement from Cloninger remains sufficient for many parents. It comes on the heels of WND's exposure of [link]Girl Scouts' promotion of lesbian causes,http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=97977[/link]."
So in 16 years, AHG has 13,000 members. Girl Scouts of America has 3.2 million, down from 3.8 million in 2004. (BSA has also seem a similar drop, since it seems many tweens and teens are just not interested in Scouting anymore.)And for those who think that American Heritage Girls are too wishy-washy namby-pamby secular, there's also [link]"Little Keepers at Home",http://www.keepersofthefaith.com/category/KeepersAtHomeIndex[/link] Not to mention the "[link]Pioneers Clubs",http://www.pioneerclubs.org/[/link], and GEMS, or [link]"Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior",http://gemsgc.org/[/link]Basically World Nut Daily has a jihad against Girl Scouts because they're not the bigoted homophobes that have taken over Boy Scouts of America
"Although Garibay did try to make changes on the local and national level regarding the decision, she was not successful. She started looking for something new for her daughters. Something new became the American Heritage Girls, an organization dedicated to "building women of integrity through service to God, family, community and country."American Heritage Girls now has over 13,000 members in 41 states."
