The fundies have foaming at the mouth hatred for Girl Scouts of the USA because it not only didn't get taken over by the wingers like they did the Boy Scouts, GSUSA has stated on its website the organization “does not have a relationship or partnership with Planned Parenthood,” and that it will remain a “secular organization” that will not take a position on human sexuality, birth control, abortion.
The faith-based haters not only have stopped organizing and supporting Girl Scout troops, in some cases they are denying them meeting spaces. They have even gone as far as organizing their own conservative alternative organization called the
They have also over the last few years attacked the Girl Scout cookie drives which are one of the funding streams for the organization.
Thanks to longtime reader Jazmine for bringing to my attention another 'War On The Girl Scouts' attack to shine a bright spotlight on.
This latest violation of the Ten Commandments comes from right wing pastor Kevin Swanson. He urged his Generations Radio show listeners not to buy Girl Scout cookies because 'the organization promotes lesbianism'
“I’d say you ought to say no to the Girl Scout cookies,” Swanson told listeners. “I don’t want to support lesbianism, I don’t want to support Planned Parenthood and I don’t want to support abortion, and if that be the case I’m not buying Girl Scout cookies.”
And if that fear and smear line wasn't enough to stir up the sheeple, Swanson called the Girl Scouts of the USA ”a wicked organization,” that doesn’t promote “godly womanhood.”
He also attacked my mayor and threw the c-word in there: Communist.
And oh yeah, the commandment Pharisee Swanson violated was 'thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.'
Yeah, it's time to rebuke this fool in the name of Jesus by tripling your orders of Girl Scout cookies when the GSUSA cookie drives start in your area.
And yeah, he's earned a Shut Up Fool award nomination for this one.
