Girl Scouts of Britain Replace 'God' with 'Myself' in Oath
breitbart ^ | 20 Jun 2013 | William Bigelow

Posted on 06/26/2013 8:47:27 AM PDT by haffast

On Wednesday, Great Britain’s Girl Guides (their equivalent of U.S. Girl Scouts) and Brownies removed God from their 103-year-old oath.

Instead of the passage where they used to promise to “love God,” they will now vow to be true to "myself" and develop "my beliefs." The organization said the move is intended to attract girls from secular families.

Andrea Minichiello Williams, CEO of Christian Concern, condemned the move, saying, "These values have their roots in a Christian outlook. Taking ‘God’ out of the promise denies the history and foundations of the movement without offering anything in its place, with the result that the organization will lose its distinctive ethos and end up meaning nothing."

Chief Guide Gill Slocombe protested that the organization consulted 40,000 before it made the change. She said that using God in the pledge “discouraged some girls and volunteers from joining,” and now the Guides could “reach out to girls and women who might not have considered guiding before, so that even more girls can benefit from everything guiding can offer.”

Julie Bentley, the new CEO of the Guides, has called the Girl Guides the “ultimate feminist organization.”

The Girl Guides in Australia also deleted God from the vow last year. The Boy Scouts in Great Britain are considering a similar move next month.

More or less sums up the rampant narcissism at the heart of secular humanism.

That so TOTALLY fits the Secular Liberal mindset, it does not require a comment.

Shocked they didn’t replace it with “Allah.”

Not to worry.

Soon the Muzdorks will force them to add the word “Allah” to the pledge - along with an addendum about never taking off their burka and never driving again.

Falling for the oldest lie in the book:

and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.

The adults who imposed this Satanic decision should suffer the same punishment as the witches of old.

And the new “oath” concludes with

“so help me Me”.

Those witless, white women from jolly ole England are doing their best to lead the West into the abyss of death of destruction.

Nuke the island from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

The new oath is very fitting with the people that changed it. “ME” and “MYSELF” is pretty much all they think about.

“She said that using God in the pledge “discouraged some girls and volunteers from joining,”

And that was probably a good thing, too. There ought to be some standards for decency.

Mat 10:33
But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

And because they did not think it worthwhile to acknowledge God, God delivered them over to a worthless mind to do what is morally wrong.

*Shocked they didn’t replace it with “Allah.”*

There will be protests in the streets of the UK for that someday.

It seems to depend on percentages...

The original sin was vanity, both for Lucifer, and time and again, by mankind, who cannot resist the impulse to set themselves up as the creator of the universe.

It was also the one thing that so irritated JHVH, that He was inclined to do something about it.
