NBC’s “Under God” Problem

During NBC’s coverage of the US Open, a patriotic montage included a Pledge of Allegiance which happened to exclude the phrase “under God” on two different occasions.  NBC has long been a joke and in 2008 became unabashed Obama shills.  Consistent with the network’s openly progressive agenda, omitting “under God” from the pledge twice was obviously premeditated and unnecessarily divisive.

Why should this matter?

Long has the phrase “under God” in the Pledge been attacked by activists with a revisionist interpretation of the Establishment Clause.  The phrase “under God” refers the United States being a nation existing under the assumption of natural rights at its core.  If the concept of natural rights is removed or diminished in our nation’s creed (or Pledge, in this case), then we are no longer citizens of a republic, but mere subjects under a form of tyranny.

NBC probably didn’t think it through that far — like all socialists progressives, religion tends to compete with the state’s elitist, in this case secular, ideology.

I’m glad the phrase was added in 1954, and because it implies to all that we respect and recognize the natural rights of all under an ordered universe (under God, if you will), it should be defended.

Oh, so the error was the result of their agenda. I just thought they were too stupid to say it correctly.
