Girlguiding UK, a British scouting organization, has “modernized” its pledge—and loving God did not make the cut.
The pledge has referenced God since the organization began in 1910. The group last changed the promise in 1994 when “duty to God” became “to love my God,” according to the BBC. Other changes attempted to make the pledge acceptable to people of many faiths. Now the organization has changed it once again to keep girls and parents with no faith at all from feeling excluded.
