    Well, they didn't forget it. It was edited out, which is their right. I don't know why they apologized though.

    Any faithful American Patriot should get "all Pissy," over this.


    What's next they do a special about the Declaration and Constitution and edit out any references to God and anything these Liberals don't like?


    If they don't Like the Pledge don't do it at all.

    What is wrong with the original pledge? Why edit in references to god when it was not originally there

    Right. So it's just my imagination that the "under god" was added to the Pledge and to our money about 60 years ago, based on the paranoid otherism of the red scare.

    No, but your attitude implies it, and jman actually did. It's really rather similar to the attitude the addition of "under god" implied in the 50's.

    History is important, except when it isn't important. Conservative logic.

    Now I am operating under the ASSumption lol that they did it in an attempt to be PC so thats where I am coming from.
    Do we agree on this? if not what is your assumption?
    It doesn't matter to me why they did it, only that they did it knowingly.

    The Pledge is not something maleable, it has a precise, de jure format. To knowingly alter or delete portions of the pledge is disrespectful no matter what your rationale.

    History isn't important when it comes to the laws on the books. Only the here and now matters.
