  It reads like an SNL sketch: a girl scout in pigtails (Amy Poehler) rings the doorbell, only for the grumpy homeowner (Bill Hader) to tell her that her beloved Thin Mints will turn his kids into evil lesbians. At least that’s how pastor Kevin Swanson and his colleague Dave Buehner would have it.    On their radio show, the pair begged listeners to boycott Girl Scout Cookies because apparently the organization “doesn’t promote godly womanhood.” He implies that the organization’s website supports Planned Parenthood, abortions, and lesbianism....
