Who's next? Step right up. Just remember, “… everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 10:32-33

    What next? Don’t be surprised when someone wants to take the United States out of America.

    Yes tamcat, they will be removing references to United States and references to America or American from the revised D.A.R. documents. There is also a proposal to remove gender-specific references in the organization name and governing documents.

    This would make the organization more inclusive of the 99 percent who either don’t identify as females or else have no direct ancestral lineage back to the American revolution. This will also avoid offending other people who have no connection whatsoever with the organization in order to be seen as more progressive and attractive to new members.

    The organization will therefore likely be changing its name to People of the Revolution which will reflect the new openness to including people of all genders and ideological backgrounds as well as prospective new members from other revolutions. One reviewer of the new documents noted that the new focus will attract a more diverse membership that is reflective of the new demographics, most of whom come from backgrounds where the words People, Revolution, or Revolutionary are already part of their common vocabulary so they will feel more comfortable and included in the group.

    The sad fact that all this means decimating the original charter and legacy of the organization is considered by most progressive members to be just another bump in the road to moving the organization foward.

    Progressive thinking is that the original Daughters of the American Revolution who founded the organization were really just the uneducated, disenfranchised, oppressed chattel of those same slave owners who wrote that other flawed document which tea party and other bitter-clingy troublemakers cherish as the U.S. Constitution.

    Modern members with the superior education of today’s academic institutions view these proposed changes as an improvement over an original tainted by the times in which it was written. How could women of such flawed ideological pedigree have been expected to get the D.A.R. documents right on the first attempt, but now we can include everyone’s ideas and make it better than it was.

    Some other progressives in the group have suggested that they leave the original charter documents as they were written but simply ignore or reinterpret them in context of today’s enlightened thinking. This way opponents of moving foward will not be alarmed and raise a fuss about the changes to what is afterall just a bunch of old pieces of paper. This way unenlightened troublemakers will have no effective recourse as long as the national level leadership remains steadfast in its resolve to do the things we all know must be done to continue to bring the organization into the post-modern world of fourscore and four years into the twentieth century.
