The Girl Scouts of the USA has issued a blistering rebuke of the Boy Scouts of America's decision to begin letting girls into the ranks of its troops.

"The Boy Scouts' house is on fire," Girl Scouts said in a statement today. "Instead of addressing systemic issues of continuing sexual assault, financial mismanagement and deficient programming, BSA's senior management wants to add an accelerant to the house fire by recruiting girls."

The criticism comes after the Boy Scouts of America said Wednesday it will allow girls to join the ranks of its Cub Scout program, as well as create a Scouting program for older girls.

Do you see this as a desperate move by the Boy Scouts? Would you want your daughter to join the Boy Scouts?
