Skip to comments.NBC dumps 'God' from Pledge of Allegiance (Poll)
Posted on 06/19/2011 3:23:35 PM PDT by Brandonmark
NBC golf commentators just apologized for a big oops that has people fired up all over the Internet.
In a patriotic, rah-rah-America video that opened NBC's coverage Sunday of the U.S. Open Golf Championship, the reading of the Pledge of Allegiance by a group of children in a classroom setting ommitted the phrase "under God."
This was the abbreviated version: "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, with liberty and justice for all."
The kids can actually be heard reciting the pledge twice; the second version leaves out "under God" and "one nation," too.
Immediately, viewers cried foul, taking to Twitter and comment boards, calling NBC "scumbugs" and pledging to boycott the network.
Later, NBC commentators apologized to viewers who had been offended.

NBC's 'God' oops
Simple mistake, take a mulligan! 11%
Actually you cannot “dump” Under God from the pledge, if you leave the phrase out, it no longer is the pledge.
They also left out the word INDIVISIBLE! So, maybe while they are showing their anti-Christian bias, they are promoting secession?
I'm composing a message to them now.
The phrase “one nation under God” does not contain a comma and the words “one nation” modify “under God”...so our pastor teaches to not pause during the phrase “one nation under God” as is the common practice.
One nation - that doesn’t need NBC.

Oooooo. Please, please, please, go for it.
Two nations, divisible, with Liberty for none and Just-Us for H0lder’s People.
Here's what I wrote:
The Pledge of Allegiance was written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy, who was a Baptist minister and a Christian. It was amended in 1954 to include the words, "one nation under God". I find it completely unacceptable for NBC to have omitted these words from the Pledge and in doing so offending Christians around the country, myself included. I find it even more unacceptable that your weak apology precluded the word "God" as well.
I have been an avid viewer of NBC broadcasts for most of my 53 years. But I refuse to support any network that willfully disparages Christians across this nation as NBC has done. Moreover, I am and have always been willing to contact sponsors notifying them that I will no longer purchase the products and/or services of any company who advertizes on such a network.
I am recording the US Open as I have always done. I will use my recording to make sure I do not miss a single NBC sponsor in my effort. Additionally, I will be writing letters to many newspapers in the Southern California area. With circulations in the millions, this will ensure your offensive actions will be known to more than just those who watched the Open.
Good luck selling your anti-God campaign to the scant few Americans who agree with your position that the Pledge should not include the word God. You have alienated me and many millions of Americans forever.
Thanks for the email address ‘40. I will be writing soon also.
If everyone stopped watching TV, especially sports, the job of taking our country back would be about 10,000 times easier than it is right now.
Garbage In, Garbage Out

So WHO made the mistake ... NAMES!!! Who are these people who keep making these “little errors” so easily apoligized away later. WHO EDITED IT, NAMES! Fire them!
Perhaps the Republican candidates can omit any NBC/MSNBC/Comacast relatated debates on their schedules...
They want the country balkanized which is the antithesis of indivisible.
