Media Officer supports change to Girl Guides’ promise in Scotsman

I was delighted to hear that the Guides Association has changed its spoken promise so as to emerge from the dusty and exclusive Christian organisation it has been for generations.

With the Guides really being the only group of their sort I’m pleased we seem to have overcome the preposterous “They can join their own atheist Guides if they don’t like it !” argument.

I very much hope the Scouts will catch up soon.
