Here is an interesting comparison:

American kids pledging allegiance to the flag:



Nazi kids Saluting Hitler:


I find both offensive whether Gods name is invoked or not.

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



Yeah, those crazy wackos who don't have a belief system. If you can't even get that fact straight, the rest of your post is irrelevant.


The fact that they don't believe in God is in itself a belief system.


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.



You seem awfully intolerant of atheists. Way to lead by example, champ.


I don't care whether you are an atheist. I'm just pointing out that they want to silence those that believe in God.

It was a simple editing mistake on a live tv broadcast
nothing more , no great attack on the christian god, no great conspiracy imo,Jesus was never this uptight, God as i understand it refers to those saying the oaths god , not THE god as u understand it mebbe compared to the original oath mentioned above it HAS gained too much status within the modern day oath , just a thought....

No they are tools, they use the liberals PC mindset and people as tools to further their agenda, when they are finished with them, they will be left with their heads spinning.

Why would anyone care what's done at a golf game? Why would anyone care what a network does? I wouldn't attend either one. The important thing is that god be kept out of government. Children have to go to school. I am responsible enough that I gave my daughter the tools to understand how and why she is being manipulated. Other children are not so fortunate.

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.


Don't worry He will deny you also.

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


Francis Bellamy, a self declared Far-left "Christain Socialist" wrote the pledge of allegience.

It did not include "under god". That was Eisenhower's cold war edit.

So NBC edited the Pledge to the original "Christian" authors version to pander to Atheists?

The pledge of allegience is sacred to the far right despite it being authored by a fierce socialist?

By your partisan logic the whole "socialist" portion of the pledge should be redacted and Eisenhowers addition should remain since he was a Republican?

Very well. Our new pledge: "Under God"...short and sweet.

Your post seems ill informed, illogical and desperately partisan.

You got that right!

According to His Word , ''The fool hath said in his heart there is no God....". Psalm 14:1-7
There cometh a day when He will say "Depart from me ye workers of inquity, I never knew you". Matthew 7:23 orrr in Psalms 6:8.

People need to heed this warning.

It is of my opinion that America and EVERYone needs to turn their hearts to Him!
and Repent of all of their (our) evil deeds!

Please sign the letter to nbc and let them know that we know that blatantly removing the words “under God” — TWICE — from their broadcast of the Pledge Had to be approved and we won't stand for it

Under God does not belong in the pledge. Do you even know the history of the pledge?

If I contact them - - the only thing I'd ask is: "Why did you apologize? You had it right".

Hi gentledissident,
God's Handbook ? His WORD you mean? Those are HIS warnings ..not mine. It is up to you to choose whether you believe HIM and where you spend your eternity. Just sounding out the alarm: The rest is up to you.

John 3:16
IMO, I'm not cluttering... ..just trying to point you in the right direction so that you can escape what is to come, Salvation is yours for the taking... It IS a FREE gift btw.
Just trying to help!
