Republicans are attempting to subtly chipping away at our oldest institution – the Crown. The republican elite's latest target is Girl Guides Australia – potentially removing "to serve the Queen" from the Guide's Promise.
In light of yesterday's piece in The Sun Herald, "God may be first casualty as Guides look for a fresh start", we have sent the following letter to NSW Guides Commissioner, Belinda Allen.
Dear Ms. Allen,
I am writing regarding yesterday’s piece in the Sun Herald – “God may be first casualty as Guides look for a fresh start”.
In 1999 Australians voted very strongly against a republic. Defeated in all States and 72% of electorates, Australians made it very clear that they wish to retain our existing Constitutional arrangements – in which the Queen is our Sovereign.
Since 1999 support for a republic has continued to decline.
Any removal of the Queen from the Guide’s Promise would be totally out of touch with mainstream Australia.
I hope you will consider this in your decision.
