Honestly, it would mostly be for direct access to an unlimited amount of Samoas but I also like that it’s character building to sell cookies door to door. The organization also teaches good values and the importance of volunteer work.
I was also thinking of not doing it because I loathe putting on those patches.
And because my daughter once fell in a shark tank during a Girl Scout outing but that was hardly their fault.
Last week, there was a very nice Girl Scouts representative at my daughters’ new school and I decided to sign up for more information.
Just a few hours later, I received a warm, professional email from this representative (a parent and local Girl Scout leader) inviting us to a BBQ so my girls could meet some of the other Girl Scouts members.
Fabulous, I thought!
And then I looked at the woman’s email address.
DirtyChristianWoman at yahoo dot com.
So I googled the woman’s name and quickly found her blog called…. Confessions of a Dirty Christian. (I see a theme here.) I tentatively clicked on it, half assuming it would immediately begin funneling money out of my bank account and into some kind of international sex ring.
But it was not a scam.
And even more surprising – not a porno site.
But instead, a blog focused on this woman’s religious beliefs and practice.
She explains… “Before you get all up in arms assuming that this is some pornographic symposium, let me explain…. I label myself “dirty” as a means of expressing the “imperfect/sinful” nature of my heart. As a Christian woman the blood of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has made me clean, but my heart continues to sin or remain dirty until I bath in the Lords forgiveness through daily prayer in confession.”
I certainly support everyone’s personal religious beliefs. People have a right to practice whatever faith they believe in. But as a parent and Girl Scouts leader, is it really necessary or professional to have an email address calling yourself a DirtyChristianWoman?
We didn’t end up going to the BBQ because we had plans. And because I hadn’t had time to come up with a fun new email address for myself. I mean, I’m not going to be outdone by the Girls Scouts.
I haven’t made any final decisions but kelcey@HotSexyMama.com is totally a contender.
