Fun times ahead

There's not much more to this article than the excerpts I include below. I hope this turns into a big, juicy, the-bishops-are-clearly-idiots type of thing. Phew. They must stay up late at night trying to come up with the next big mistake they can make. It's an amazing, hateful crew, this U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Last week, the nuns; this week, the Girl Scouts -- and always, the gays.
The Girl Scouts of the USA have long been a lightning rod for conservative criticism. Now they're facing their highest-level challenge: An official inquiry by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. 
I wish they said more. There's this tidbit:
At issue are concerns about program materials that some Catholics find offensive, as well as assertions that the Scouts associate with groups whose stances conflict with church teaching.
Excuse me, but I had no idea the Girl Scouts were an official arm of the Roman Catholic Church. Are they the Roman Catholic Girls Scouts of the USA? Their Wikipedia entry makes no mention of a direct link to His Popeyness.

The Girl Scouts of the USA can't associate freely with others? Can't create their own program materials? What on Earth are these prissy old men regurgitating now? I can't wait to find out! Good times!
