I have been asked recently by several non-scout individuals about the
rewording of the Girl Scout promise to change the reference to God. I
know it was addressed at the National Convention last year but have heard
nothing official. Does anyone know what the final outcome was?
I know that the Girl Scouts decided not insist on the word "God" in their
promise, I'm not sure how they have worded it instead. I heard one version,
that the written promise would remain the same, however when the girls recite
the promise they may use any term they feel appropriate. Could make for an
interesting group recitation.
