“Our family loves Girl Scout cookies and I don’t think allowing a boy in the Girl Scouts is a good thing,” Duggar told BuzzFeed after a Rick Santorum campaign stop in Laurens. Duggar and some of his children are on the campaign trail for Rick Santorum in South Carolina this week.
“I think the founders of the Girl Scouts would be truly upset to hear this direction,” Duggar said, noting that his wife Michelle is a former Girl Scout troop leader. “If they’re wanting to create a new scout program where girls and boys would join together, that might be an option. But whether somebody declares they’re a boy or girl and can join either one — it isn’t even logical and it goes against the core principles the group was founded on.”
Asked about his voting plans if Santorum doesn’t win the nomination, Duggar was conflicted. “I think Romney is just as liberal or almost just as liberal as President Obama,” Duggar said. “He’s trying to act like a conservative, but I don’t think it’s in his heart.”
“I probably would look for a third party candidate, which would not be Ron Paul.”
