During two Pledge of Allegiances meant to demonstrate patriotism prior to the U.S. Open NBC edited out phrases that included the words "Under God". It later apologized under a hail of criticism.
The 'grassroots' christian fascists are always on alert, ready to attack, whenever sanity threatens them.
Then again I am fine with the under God stuff because I am GOD, you can't disprove it, my ways are mysterious, and everyone should serve me or go to hell. : )
P.S for once I'm fine with censorship - but still not in principle - cause the 'god stuff' shouldn't be there in the first place because it directly contradicts the founding principle, 'separation of church and state.'
G. Loren McIntyre thanx for the link.
this is what I sent them.
thanx for leaving OUT the words "under god" from the pledge of allegiance.it was refreshing to see a major network get the point that this was not originally in it and was only added in due to the paranoia of the cold war.PLEASE on any other show/presentation keep the LAW and continue to OMIT the phase "under god" from the pledge.after all we are a country under LAW....not a 2000 year old sand storm delusion.thanx for your time.
also on that same page you can "ask a question of nbc sports
drop a little note to them too.
