One Nation, Under WHO???
NBC has already apologized, saying it was a regrettable editing error and was not done intentionally, but we've been lied to before by the powers that be, so I look at this at yet another example of this country's intense desire to rid our lives of God completely. Children are not allowed to pray in school. They want to keep the Lord's name out of court rooms. They want to sue the government to take His name off of our money. And over the weekend, during it's coverage of the U.S. Open, NBC removed the words "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance. It was being recited by a group of children, played to the back drop of scenes of Americana. It was supposed to be a tribute to patriotism. But you didn't even have to listen closely when the children began to speak, there was a distinct silence where "under God" should have been. How could that have been a mistake? No other words were omitted. Nothing else was bleeped out or removed. Just those two words. One nation, under who? "Oh, don't worry about it, under no one. It's nothing. Just enjoy this game of golf." The outrage was immediate, resulting in an impromptu public apology from NBC. In my opinion, sorry means nothing when the damage has already been done. Sorry doesn't change the fact that we have become so afraid of offending one group or another, that we've used political correctness to abolish the exact ideals that founded this country in the first place. When you take away God, you take away the foundation. Without God, there is no red, white and blue, home of the free, and land of the brave. An atheist might tell you something different, and as every good Christian knows, God loves them anyway.
