Pastors Kevin Swanson and David Buehner of Generation Radio are urging their listeners not to buy Girl Scout Cookies. The devil, it seems is in those boxes.
According to these men who say that are communicating the word of God, Girls Scouts (GSA) are lesbians and communists with an agenda to promote abortion.
Swanson explains his stand:
“The individualism of feminism has been devastating to this country. I’d say you ought to say no to the Girl Scout cookies too. 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. Now I suppose if you take a big, fat, black magic marker and you say, ‘give me that box,’ and you start marking out all of the references to the Girl Scouts of America on all the boxes then maybe we’re not promoting that organization anymore and I’d be willing to buy it. […] Maybe it’s not food offered to idols anymore if I had the opportunity to scratch out references to the Girl Scouts of America on the boxes of the Girl Scout cookies offered to me at Safeway.”
Where to begin? Okay, the shaming of girls and woman must stop. Even though the above statement is criminally insane, some folks will believe it.
The Family Research Council contributed to this problem. They deviated from their standard mission to crusade against gay rights and same sex marriage as well as the right of choice, to spread the rumor that the Girl Scouts work hand in glove with Planned Parenthood.
GSA seeks to foster capable girls, as they grow into women, in a very dangerous society.
Here is a quick lesson in capitalism. If you buy the cookies, even if the name Girl Scouts of America is scratched out with a black marker, the organization still profits.
