So, with all the controversy with the scouts and how they "must" let certain people in now...
We were looking for something for my girlfriends 9 year old to get involved with. We decided against "The Girl Scouts" based on news reports of the organization being impacted by liberal views.
So, I happened across the American Heritage Girls organization via a google search.
Yesterday was the first meeting, and I just about cried...
They said the pledge of Allegiance, the REAL pledge, "One nation under GOD". WOW!
Then they recited their oath.
I promise to love God,
cherish my family,
honor my country,
and serve in my community.
We couldn't be happier with our choice!
They meet in a Catholic church, and while we're protestant, they welcomed us with open arms.
Good to see some things are not lost.
Hopefully, with an association to churches (Catholic or other), they won't be liberalized.

Sounds like the girl version of Trail Life (whose membership is surging since BSA decided to accept tranny kids).
I predict that there will be many suggestions and statements about the law made here, and some of them will be spectacularly wrong. - jhe888
There is a group where I live. They are always at Memorial Day and Veterans Day services in our national cemetery, along with the organization for the boys.
About a week ago, they were having a fund raiser for our conservative state representative.
There is hope for the future.

I just driving past the Boy Scouts of America building here yesterday and was thinking how political correctness by the liberals have completely decimated it.
Scouts don't say the Pledge of Allegiance? News to me (father of 2 cub scouts, a Lion and a Tiger).
Happy to hear you found a group that works for you!
The issues that are described probably have more to do with the location in which you live. We live in a rural/mountain community and I don't have the same issues folks in a more urban area experience.
They also say the Pledge every morning at our local public school.
Troop 787 still does the Pledge. Both summer camps I have attended with my son (I am an assistant scoutmaster) have recited the Pledge.
(I have not noticed any unusual boys.)
(Maybe that's the point.)
The other ASMs I have met at our troop meetings are like I imagine most of "us" are here on SF.
Yes, Para does appreciate humor.

Our oldest daughter is in AHG. And my wife is a leader.

My wife leads a troop of GS Juniors. We pray AND recite the pledge of allegiance.

This was the Scout oath when I was a Scout:
On my honor, I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.
I guess they can't say that anymore. Not with a straight face anyway.

There are only so many lawsuits an organization can stand. I am sure this played no small part in the decision (my opinion only).
That said, Pack 7, and specifically, Den 10 recite the Oath, Laws, and Pledge of Allegiance at each meeting.
The newer cadre of leadership is a bit more pre-90s lawsuit-era Scout Leader for sure.
