Pastor Kevin Swanson of Generations with Vision Ministry earlier this month attacked the Girls Scouts for supporting LGBT rights.

On his radio program, Swanson, who has previously called for a boycott of Girl Scout cookies and has accused the organization of turning girls into lesbians, argued that Girl Scout leaders are worthy of death.

After claiming that the Girl Scouts “promotes lesbianism” and movies such as Harry Potter and How To Train Your Dragon which feature “homosexual mentors provided to little boys,” Swanson said people must take Jesus' teachings literally, in particular Mark 9:42, which states that anyone who causes a child who believes in him to sin should be thrown into the sea with a large millstone hung around their neck.

“You've got to take what He says and you have to apply it,” Swanson said.

Swanson has repeatedly called for the execution of people who are gay or lesbian, most recently at an event in Iowa which featured Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz.
