Children in the United Kingdom’s Girl Guides program need to stop mentioning “God” when they sing their campfire songs.
At least that’s the instruction from the organization that runs Girlguiding.
A report from the Christian Institute notes that the organization posted online the new instructions, then removed them.
In that posting, officials of Britain’s largest girls organization claimed some traditional songs should be changed so that they are “inclusive for everyone.”

It offered as an example one song, used by Brownies, that said, “Oh Lord, Our God; Thy children call; Grant us they peace; And bless us all; Goodnight.”
That, the organization insisted, should be changed to: “Time for the end, our meeting’s past, Brownies is great, time flies so fast, goodnight.”
Ciarán Kelly, the deputy director of the Christian Institute, explained, “The Girl Guides and Scouts should remember that their founders, Robert Baden-Powell and his sister Agnes, were motivated by their faith. Erasing their past and our traditions do not promote greater inclusion, or diversity. Quite the opposite.
“The many Christian members of the Girl Guides will certainly question how welcome they really are. I hope they reconsider this decision.”

An official with the organization claimed “it’s important we consider elements of our heritage that may not illustrate our values and ethos of today, and how they may be excluding girls or volunteers from taking part fully or feeling truly welcome.”
It’s not the first such anti-Christian move by the group. Back in 2017, officials urged members not to say grace before meals – to “avoid offending” someone.
And last year, it promoted the story of a boy, 7, who claims he is a girl.
“The boy’s mother told Girlguiding’s magazine how she worked to embrace him as he discovered his ‘true identity’ and he joined Brownies. She added: ‘Trans girls feel like girls and should be treated as such,'” the report said.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Long the world’s most Christian nation, America today is being taken over by a new “official” national religion, one being imposed on the entire populace by every major societal institution, from government, media and big tech, to academia, entertainment and business.
This new state religion is Wokeism. “Going woke” conjures up visions of someone claiming to be acutely sensitive (“awake”) to “systemic social and political injustice.” And not just alleged bigotry against blacks, but toward every other “minority” as well, from LGBT folk – especially everything transgender and “nonbinary” – to “undocumented immigrants.” All of them, being VICTIMS, intrinsically more virtuous than the shameful oppressor class: primarily heterosexual white males.
This new “woke” consciousness has turned America upside-down – from the nationwide Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots in 2020, to tearing down of historic monuments, to demanding multi-million-dollar reparation payments for blacks, to appointing transgenders as top government officials, to rampant reverse discrimination in every area of life, to the U.S. military imposing mandatory “diversity training” and transgender pronoun use on all personnel, causing recruitment to disastrously plummet.
Yet there is hope. Being “saved” – which in Wokeism is called being “woke” – is largely a matter of worshipping victimhood by becoming an “ally” and “defender” of all the many victim classes, and a determined enemy of the straight white male oppressor class. Thus, “joining the righteous” as an ally – even if one is cursed to be a straight white male – opens the door mercifully for salvation, even to the most wretched.
That is the power of the religion of Wokeism. And it’s explored as never before in the February 2023 issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine. If you’ve ever wondered, for example, exactly how the most radical elements in American society are successfully pressuring the biggest corporations into adopting the most outrageous and immoral policies imaginable, even when doing so permanently damages and devalues the company, the stunning answers are in this issue of Whistleblower, titled “WOKEISM: AMERICA’S OFFICIAL STATE RELIGION.”
