Nation IN BRIEF : MINNESOTA : Girl Scouts May Broaden Pledge

October 19, 1993|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

For decades, Girl Scouts have recited a pledge to serve God and country. But the organization will consider whether the nation's 2.6-million Girl Scouts may substitute a pledge to serve Allah, "the Creator"--or no one at all. Those seeking the change say it would rightly acknowledge ethnic and religious diversity. Others don't want to tinker with tradition. The proposal will be decided by 2,000 youth and adult delegates at the Girl Scouts' national convention in Minneapolis.
