"American Girl" under fire

MILWAUKEE - A Roman Catholic school is canceling a fashion show by the manufacturer of American Girl dolls and books amid conservative groups' criticism of a girls organization that receives support from the company.

So the "American Girl" manufacturers donated money to a radical group, and the school is protesting. Which group was that? Girls Inc., formerly known as Girls Clubs of America.

While I believe that religion can play a positive role in a person's life, it seems to me that the role that organized religion plays in public life is as likely to be detrimental as beneficial.
