That's not how most the media reported it yesterday. I saw this:

Although Cru has no clear religious meaning, leaders are adamant that the word Christ was not removed from the name intentionally.

However, according to its website, "Cru enables us to have discussions about Christ with people who might initially be turned off by a more overtly Christian name."


...and an article like this one: http://content.usatoday.com/communit...l/1?csp=34news

I can understand a "problem" with the word crusade. But c'mon. They are deliberately not explaining the removal of the name Christ.

They sound like a chewing gum now -- a pointless, meaningless name that could stand for anything, almost the exact opposite of where they are coming from.

Don't know much about these guys to be honest but for those who use focus groups and hold elections to refine their identity, I get suspicious.
