NBC apologizes for cutting "under God" from Pledge of Allegiance before U.S. Open


www.washingtonpost.com

“We began our coverage of this final round just about three hours ago and when we did it was our intent to begin the coverage of this U.S. Open Championship with a feature that captured the patriotism of our national championship being held in our nation’s capital for the third time. Regrettably, a portion of the Pledge of Allegiance that was in that feature was edited out. It was not done to upset anyone and we’d like to apologize to those of you who were offended by it.”

So, this is where politically correct has got us.

The Government controlled MSM has decided God is to "edgy" I guess. We wouldn't want to offend any other groups of people, would we?

I for one am sick and tired of trying to please everybody. This country was founded on Christian principles, like it or not.

I want my God back in the Pledge of Allegiance, a pledge to a once great country, that hopefully one day will be great again.

IF that offends anybody, they can kiss my American butt.

I'm sorry but the majority of our founding fathers were NOT christian. So NBC doesn't really have to apologize, considering that the "Under God" part was added during the middle of the Cold War in order to set us apart from those evil commies.

Whatever.

The Pledge of Allegiance was created by a socialist, who wanted to drum up support for federal bureaucracies. I say we get rid of the whole thing.

I don't believe their 'apology' for a minute. They deliberately omitted "under God" because they were pandering to the left wing atheist wackos.

Here's a video of the incident at the US Open:

Hey why isn't my god mentioned in the pledge of allegiance?

I want to pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under Zeus....

Your god is included in the all-encompassing term "God". It doesn't say "Under Jesus" or "Under Muhammed" or any other specific god.

Yeah those "wackos" that don't live their life according to how a book that was written thousands of years ago by sheep herders tells them.

Those "wackos" that don't claim to know how the Universe started but rather choose to keep an open mind to different possibilities as long as they're credible and backed up by science and common sense.

Yeah those evil atheist wackos that are out to get us!

It saddens me how people no longer have a place in their hearts for God. This doesn't surprise me.

To me, it's like telling someone that you are sorry, then smacking them!
No wonder things are falling apart in America, the whole world for that matter!

Yeah, those wackos. The ones who cannot tolerate a belief system other than their empty, barren one.

Don't say they "choose to keep an open mind to different possibilities", because they are very intolerant of other belief systems. Their model is Michael Newdow, a hollow man if I ever saw one.

yep the atheists take every opportunity to kill god and make it a dirty word

and replace government with it.

i pledge allegiance to the government of the united agencies of government, and to the democracy which is nothing but mob rule and seek to diminish the rights of the minority cause hell we feel like it.

one nation under government,indivisible.with slavery and oppression for all.

nbc and the left would be happy with that.

kill god to become god.

and yet here on ats is another thread about the political agenda of fox news which received alot of replies

but since the is nbc funded by soros and the main stream obama cheerleaders oh and by the way saw fit to leave out god many times before now the press is just following suit.they will condisder this a non issue.

they dont fear islam but christians oh hell dont you dont say god.

i have had enough of the hypocrisy

Maybe it might have to do with the level of knowledge that is available today? Just a thought.

Remember how people used to believe that whenever it was thundering it was because god was angry? Yeah, know we know where thunder comes from and what causes it.

No, see, you made a reference to the radical atheist agenda, and I was just bringing up a funny quote from your boy Gingrich recently when he tried to make a reference to radical atheist muslim extremists and it seemed right up to speed with how your saying NBC is in cahoots with the radical god haters.

And I totally agree with you. Under God has been in the pledge of allegiance since forever, and they OBVIOUSLY omitted it because NBC stands for Neitcshe Broadcasting Company and they want to destroy god G*Ds name from the pledge to our flag because it is NOT a false idol because jesus loves America the best!

Yeah dude, my world is totally barren and deserted


Actually I choose to live life to the fullest without fear that some supernatural being is watching me every second of my life.

Also I choose to believe that the many wonders of the universe and of this world are just simply unexplainable, and I don't try to make some God responsible for them, I enjoy their beauty but I don't choose to praise some being that I don't even know if it exists for their existence.
