Girl Scout cookie season is still a few months away, but pastor and right-wing activist Kevin Swanson is already worked up about the consequences of eating Caramel DeLites and Thin Mints.

Namely, lesbianism, abortion, Communism and general wickedness.

"Please, I beg of you, stop buying Girl Scout cookies," Swanson pleaded during his Monday radio broadcast.

Swanson isn't the first conservative to go absolutely bananas over the Girl Scouts' inclusive but fairly anodyne policies regarding sexuality, gender and religion, but it's still plenty fun to listen to him panic about them.
