WATCH: Samantha Bee Chews Out Anti-Girl Scout Archbishop

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee

Samantha Bee served up a sweet dessert at the conclusion of Monday’s Full Frontal with Samantha Beea troop-sized bundle of Girl Scout cookie boxes for her studio audience, who cheered the way she put down the Archbishop Robert Carlson of eastern Missouri, reports Raw Story.

Carlson sent a letter to parishes last month announcing he’d disbanded the committee that served as a liaison between the Girl Scouts of America and the archdiocese for the past century, recommending pastors find alternative organizations for its girls, because the scouts support transgender and other LGBT civil rights.

“Their position on and inclusion of transgender and homosexual issues are proving problematic,” Carlson wrote. 

Bee noted that Carlson also complained on the archdiocese website that the Girl Scouts supported contraception, which he labeled in his letter as part of “a troubling pattern of behavior.”

“If you don’t want girls getting knocked up and you won’t let them have contraception, you’d better teach the Boy Scouts to use some of those fancy knots on their dicks,” Bee said.

She also dug deep into Carlson’s 2014 testimony in a case of sexual assault committed by a former priest, revealing that he said under oath: “I’m not sure whether I knew it was a crime or not,” when asked by a prosecutor to confirm that he “knew it was a crime for an adult to engage in sex with a kid.”

Bee ended the show with an invitation to viewers to go to her website to buy cookies or make a donation to the Girl Scouts.
