Well, well, well. This is somewhat surprising but then again it is not. Non-profit organizations often partner with one another in attempt to survive and continue their missions.
However, in this case, the Girl Scouts seems to be going the way of the wind and aligns itself with groups that are “culturally” popular at the time.
For example, check out this little tidbit from Wikipedia:
The Girl Scout Promise can be made in English, Spanish, or in American Sign Language with the same meaning. On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.
The Promise is often recited at Girl Scout troop meetings while holding up the three middle fingers of the right hand, which forms the Girl Scout sign. Girl Scout policy states that the word “God” may be interpreted depending on individual spiritual beliefs. When reciting the Girl Scout Promise, “God” may be substituted with the word dictated by those beliefs.
The Girl Scout Motto is “Be Prepared.”
I am near 100 percent certain that when this pledge was originally written, God, was meant to be a reference to the One True God not a god who, “may be interpreted depending on individual spiritual beliefs.”
