Kevin Swanson has jumped on the Girl Scout Organization once more. He has adamantly called the organization wicked many times on his radio program and is now saying people should not buy their cookies. This right-wing pastor is a conspiracy theorist that boasts of seeing Satan and lesbians at every turn. He even claimed the popular children’s film Frozen should be avoided because it leads to witchcraft and may turn small children on to bestiality and lesbianism.
Swanson also told the listeners of his radio show that the devil is behind Disney and is on a mission to destroy American Christian social structure. He criticized Christians for taking their children to see Frozen; spouting claims that it is produced by one of the most pro-homosexual organizations in the country. According to Swanson, there is something very evil happening with this organization.
Now he is reiterating his previous belief that people should not buy Girl Scout cookies. The pastor said people are fleeing the Girl Scouts because the parents who really care about their young daughters do not want them to become lesbians by the age of 24. On a recent program Swanson said he is not backing down from the Girl Scouts because the organization corrupts children. Swanson said he agrees with the Gospel of Matthew where Jesus said:
If you offend one of these little ones who believes in me, it would be better for you that a millstone be hanged around your neck and you be drowned at the bottom of the sea.
Swanson said six percent of parents may think it is okay for their girl to grow up, become a lesbian and never get married and fulfill God’s role for her as a woman. There is another 95 percent, according to Swanson, who are not so keen on the idea; and this is what baffles him. These same parents send their children to these tainted organizations and allow them to be educated in schools which support the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN).
Homeschooled himself as far back as the 60s and 70s, Swanson and Brenda his wife, home school their five children. With GLSEN sponsored signs posted all over schools Swanson cannot understand why parents would send their six, seven, eight and nine-year old girls to those facilities to learn. Parents put their children in those environments and then fail to understand why they grow up and become homosexuals. The question this right-wing pastor said he would like to ask these parents is:
Is it your objective that your kids be well indoctrinated in lesbianism and homosexuality such that they will become the future lesbians of America?
Swanson took to his show to beg his listeners not to buy Girl Scout cookies and to warn them of the organization. He explained the risk it brings of turning young girls into communists and lesbians. Once this happens, said the pastor, “God’s purpose for that child’s life is thrown right out of the window.”
In spite of Kevin Swanson’s theory, Girls Scouts of America is an organization which aims to empower girls while teaching values such as honesty, sisterhood, courage, fairness, compassion, confidence, character and citizenship. Many women who were once Girl Scouts have gone on to become successful leaders in numerous professional fields such as law, politics, medicine, science and journalism.
