The YMCA has decided to change it's name and it's company logo. It will no longer be known as the YMCA as evidenced in the statement released July 12, 2010. Here is an excerpt from that statement for you to read, then you can vote on whether you think the name and logo change is a good idea ...
Switching the name to "The Y", even though it is easier (same number of letters but two less syllables) and already in common use as street slang for the YMCA, provokes the question: What does it stand for? "The Young"? Or is still short for YMCA?
Perhaps an even more important question is what does the YMCA stand for as an organization?
The YMCA was founded in England 166 yrs ago on Christian principals which included loving your neighbor with kindness, goodness, and gentleness. It has meant providing both assistance and a place of refuge for the lost and lonely. Ultimately it means becoming an extension of Christ himself on earth so that other people can know and understand the love and mercy of God ...

They serve food now wow ?
Seems the 60’s ‘mother-earth’ radicals are everywhere!
Kinda messes up the meter of some Village People lyrics.
I can’t recall the last time I met a single Christian at “The Y”. They ceased to be a Christian organization years ago...but luckily not before I accepted Christ at YMCA summer camp in the late 70’s.
But do they realize that “The Y” is a term used to describe a part of the female anatomy?
You gotta be quick around here!
I’ve never heard of that
It would mess up your Village People dance ping.
Well it’s one way to get away from that gay Village People song.
Now they need to stop having the all night nude swinger pool parties.

Kids at YMCA swim meet run into cross-dressing ball
suntimes December 20, 2004
In an incident the YMCA is calling “a very regrettable scheduling error,” kids arriving for an early-morning swim meet Sunday walked into a gender-bending scene of the kind most of them wouldn’t be allowed to watch on TV.
Several of the kids’ angry parents clashed with participants in a transgender fashion show, which had been under way at the New City YMCA since about midnight, resulting in a chaotic melee that was eventually broken up by private security guards and East Chicago District police.

Funny, I think calling it “the Y” still has the same number of letters.
oh this stuff is sick!
This is right up there with Christian Children’s Fund dropping the word Christian.
Then I remembered that the YMCA/YWCA became non Christian some years ago..ie Patricia Ireland etc, so in that sense it`s good that the Non Christian YMCA is now admitting publicly that they have absolutely nothing to do with Christ Our Lord.
However it is HEART BREAKING because it was once a Christian institution.
Christian Children's fund dropped Christian and is now just Children Fund or something like that, so I have no use for them either, World Vision is the way to go in that area.
So yes it`s heart breaking, but good that they are admitting they no longer have anything to do with Christ.
You Can NOT be Christian and hire Patricia Ireland, for that matter you can NOT be Christian and vote Democrat. Reason being is Democrats support infanticide and gay marriage.
Hasn’t it always been known as the place where old guys swim naked and young men are introduced to dating opportunities? It was always a pretty creepy place.
