Pastor Says Girl Scout Cookies Promote Lesbianism, Communists

Oh, man: Pastor Kevin Swanson is begging his followers to avoid "wicked" Girl Scout Cookies. Why's that? "I mean, I don’t want to support lesbianism," he explains on his radio talk show, Generations Radio. "I don’t want to support Planned Parenthood, and I don’t want to support abortion."

Here's the relevant clip:

Swanson, who runs his show out of his Colorado basement — "a safe distance from the demise of Western civilization" — claims the organization is doing some "shocking things" at their conventions, where "lots and lots of lesbians are showing up." The cookie, the not-so-innocent sapphic agent of these green-vested girls, ultimately represents the demise of "godly womanhood."

That's not all: Per Swanson, entrepreneurial girls selling cookies lead to communism, too. "In fact, if you want a Communist in the White House in the year 2020," Swanson continues in the clip, "you have got to get more daughters raised with the worldview, the independent mind-set, the worldview that is presented by the Girl Scouts of America."

When Oklahoma City's KFOR News asked an 11-year-old Scout what she thought Girl Scouts taught her, she replied, "You have to respect your authorities and be kind to people. You have to be courageous and strong."
