The Girl Scouts will allow you to say God, Allah, or what ever you want to
say or not say anything at all. There is no other way to interpret their
actions, they have lowered their standards. Political correct is a hot
phrase in this country but many times these two terms are mutually exclusive.

I have to disagree with you on this point. I am a Catholic and am sensitive
to religious intolerance. I feel this is a dramatic step towards fostering
understanding of different faiths. It is important that the very people (
the children) that we are helping to raise to assume their place in the
future, be considerate of others culture, beliefs, etc. Perhaps through this
consideration and understanding, the horrors of this world (Ireland, Bosnia -
Herzgovinia, Oaklahoma City, Rwanda) will become part of history and not
continue to be a living reality.
