NBC omits 'under God' from Pledge of Allegiance

NBC has issued an apology to 107 cry-baby members of Congress who got pissed off that an NBC broadcast had been edited to remove the controversial words 'under God' from the Pledge of Allegiance.

NBC should not apologize. The staff who made the edit did the right thing. 'Under God' has no place in the Pledge of Allegiance.

I would like to publicly criticize NBC for reprimanding the heroic staff members who took an ideological stance against theocracy.

This is not a nation under God, because there is no evidence whatsoever that such a deity even exists.

This is a nation defined by a Constitution written by men, because of their will to break away from an authoritarian empire. Not a nation under control of any kind of imaginary supernatural entity.

Forcing people to pledge allegiance to a 'nation under God' is forcing people to pledge an allegiance to a false idol. This should not be tolerated in a secular society such as ours, and NBC should instead be rewarding the employees involved.
