In the Year of Faith…

On Wednesday, Great Britain’s Girl Guides  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.”

    Western Civilisation[society] is collapsing – all moral, ethical and natural laws, are being ground to dust in the names of equality, human rights, civil liberties and political correctness. Governments have ceased to be DEMOCRATIC ! Next step ANARCHY – do what you want, when you want and where you want. Decency, respect, concern and humanity are dying as a the result of any/every minority group getting its way, by calling down everyone who disagrees with them as BIGOTS.
    In GOD’s name where is this EVIL going to end. I fear for my grandchildren and can only PRAY for them and humanity.

  2. People of other Major Faiths do not want God to be taken out of the public domain as they feel this is an insult to them as well as us. Other Faiths expect to celebrate Christain Feasts and have a great respect for Christains. They feel they are being patronised when political correctness dictates that the word GOD be dropped.

    This is a politial move to get rid of GOD and has nothing to do with faith groups being intollerant to each other. I know this from personal expreience, the politial move is an infrigment of the rights of all Faiths as well as Chritians.
