Admitted anti-Catholic Samantha Bee ranted against St. Louis, Missouri's archbishop on the February 29, 2016 edition of TBS's Full Frontal for his letter asking his parishes to "strongly consider" cutting ties with the Girl Scouts. Bee used an out-of-context quote from the prelate during a civil lawsuit on priestly sex abuse to attack him as not the "best person to judge what you do with your body." After revealing a large stack of Girl Scout cookies on her set, Bee cracked, "You can eat your cookies; you give them to a shelter; or just throw them at a passing archbishop."
