Religious Right's Cookie-Cott Is Full of Caca!

 Religious Right's Cookie-Cott Is Full of Caca!

The one place you'd hope the abortion battle would not be waged is with the Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA). The thought of Girl Scout cookies—an ubiquitous symbol of the organization and an American staple like Apple pie that made nearly $700 million in sales since 1999—has helped fund abortions at Planned Parenthood is unfathomable.

But with Religious Right activists fishing for another fallacious assertion to try on the American public this one unfortunately has legs. And the Religious Right has dubbed their anti-abortion battle "cookie-cott," imploring Christians to rebuff beguiling bright-eyed little girl scouts selling the organization's pro-choice cash cow.

"Now I have another good reason not to buy Girl Scout Cookies. Not only are the cookies bad, but so is the lesbo Girl Experience Officer. What the hell is the message here? "Experience this girl, you might like it?" an anonymous person wrote on the right-wing breitbart.com.

With Kokjohn's job responsibility to "serve as the chief of girl innovation and be the expert on and organizational voice for girls," notorious vile-mouthed Right-Wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh criticized the Kokjohn-Poehler's hire as evidence of an "all out jihad" on American values.

GSUSA position statement makes it a point to stress that the organization recognizes the rights of and welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. But the Religious Right not only has a problem with lesbians, they also have a problem with little girls who are
