Skip to comments.Girl Scouts of Britain Replace 'God' with 'Myself' in Oath

On Wednesday, Great Britains 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.

Jaysus! Who let the dogs out?
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.
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.
Give it a couple of years. :-/
Or alcoholic's living single.
Ugly stick, or whole forrest !
Why not implode and embrace the philosophy of Atheism..
Eeek! A Freak!
Three of ‘em, in fact.
The new oath is very fitting with the people that changed it. “ME” and “MYSELF” is pretty much all they think about.
eh, atheists do this as a way of life. Now UK “person scouts” are practical atheists...
