FRC Launches Girl Scout Cookies Boycott
"Someone else has their hand in the Girl Scouts cookie jar--and it's not who you think. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. There are plenty of politics behind that box of Thin Mints, and you should know what they are before you go buying one. As sweet as the girls are, a lot of that cookie dough goes to straight to the group's political agenda. When they aren't partnering with Planned Parenthood, they're promoting sexual 'diversity.'
"Last year, the Girl Scouts decided to admit boys who dress as girls--which shouldn't come as a surprise, says FRC's Cathy Ruse, since they have a cross-dresser in their front office. And that's not all. Earlier this month, a Girl Scout employee made the mistake of stopping by the office to do extra work on her own time in a T-shirt [that said] 'Pray to End Abortion.' A supervisor ordered her to turn the shirt inside out or leave the office. She left, for good. So, says Cathy Ruse, should we all." - Family Research Council head Tony Perkins, speaking today on his radio show.
FACT CHECK: Right Wing Watch points out that the Girls Scouts do not have any relationship with Planned Parenthood, but as we've seen here hundreds of times, easily disproved lies are no problem for Christianists.
