The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) was founded in 1890 with the motto, "God, Home, and Country," but they are banning Jesus Christ from meetings, ceremonies, literature, and prayers. A report was posted on The Blaze today, Jan. 3, 2013.
Some members of The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), a non-profit women’s organization devoted to promoting patriotism, are outraged over some purported changes that the group has made to its official book. According to a subset of DAR devotees, all references and mentions of Jesus Christ have been removed from the book. Additionally, poems and prayers have been axed, with members allegedly being told to refrain from praying in Christ’s name.
This is just another move by American institutions to be more inclusive which usually seems to mean that Christianity is excluded. The DAR lists preserving history as one of their goals stated on the Daughters of the Revolution website, but what they are doing is actually rewriting history by altering documents that have been part of the group’s history for 122 years.
Any woman over 18 who can trace her lineage back to a Revolutionary War soldier can join the organization. There are 170,000 members across 30,000 chapters in the United States and around the world, according to the official DAR website.
