    There are no references to God in the Constitution.

    No, but a number of 'state' Constitutions have references to God...

    God in the State Constitutions - The U.S. Constitution Online - USConstitution.net

    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.
    Why?
    Totally disagree if their goal was to be more PC.
    Now I personally wouldnt do it but but since the pledge is a government think and has nothing to do with religion omitting the words god from it even when I believe in god do nothing to me. Im still looking for the logic to drive me to be offended? offended over what? they choose to not use a word they deemed some might be offended by?

    also anything on thier network is malleable as long as it doesnt violate FCC or make it slander.

    I don't think councilman was talking about that seeing that he did not mention anything in regards to State Constitutions

    The pledge of allegiance is stupid anyways. Nothing more than false symbolism allowing Republicans to jerk off to the flag whenever they need to rag on some Muslims.
    Peace is a lie. There is only Passion. Through Passion I gain Strength. Through Strength I gain Power. Through Power I gain Victory. Through Victory my chains are Broken. The Force shall free me.

    Did I 'say' that he was referring to that?

    I specifically mentioned I was just throwing it out there. Just a side note. Tangent. etc.
