Perhaps ritual renovation is only to be performed by 'white' sororities afraid of losing the membership and approval of POC.
No one in an NPHC organization who comes to this board (all two of us) will disclose ANYTHING about our rituals to non-members, not even in a roundabout way, to humor the point you're trying to make.

It depends what you define as a “Christian reference.”

All three* of us.

And nope. Not even a little bit. We don’t have anything to do with it.

I watched a live stream of my ritual this spring after a sister who saw this thread and knew me in real life contacted me. She told me that our organization had already changed part of the ritual. I knew without her telling me what it would be because it was profoundly Christian.

I was correct. It was a central part of the ritual, not just a passing comment. I can't explain why without giving too much away. But to remove it greatly weakened the ritual. If I now meet a sister who has been initiated recently, we don't share the same understanding of parts of our sisterhood. That's as much as I can say, but that's the reality.

I take my ritual seriously. When I was chapter president, I took the ritual book home over the summer so I could memorize it and look my sisters in the eye while initiating them rather than having my head buried in the book. For a variety of reasons, I presided over the ritual multiple times. I took it very seriously.

So I don't appreciate the insinuations that because I'm discussing this that I don't. It would have been easier to say nothing here than raise these issues.

I stand by what I said. Look in the forum today. A new thread about a national organization being petitioned by members of an apparently strong and old chapter to dissolve their chapter because it doesn't fit with the woke narrative of the current members. The experience and work of generations of women on that campus potentially snuffed out because a group of women today want something completely different and they want it now.

But, yeah, go ahead and pretend those men in the video were fear mongering and I don't take my ritual seriously if that makes you feel better.
