An Indiana lawmaker has accused the Girl Scouts of being a radical group that promotes abortions and homosexuality.

The Girl Scouts flatly deny Republican Rep. Bob Morris' charges.

Morris, of Fort Wayne, told The Associated Press that people should not accept the 100-year-old scouting organization as a benevolent group.

Morris wrote a letter to House Republicans Saturday saying he had found evidence on the Internet that the scouts are a "tactical arm" of Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood issued a separate statement calling Morris' charges "woefully inaccurate."

Morris' stance became the butt of jokes inside the Indiana House Tuesday. Speaker Brian Bosma, a fellow Republican, joked that he bought 278 cases of Girl Scout cookies and spent much of the day distributing Thin Mint cookies to lawmakers.
