One of those rather trivial issues that we periodically get worked up about, but I did get a joke out of it.

When I heard about NBC censoring the “under God” portion of the Pledge of Allegiance from a video shown for the U.S. Open, my first thought was: “too bad it wasn’t The Masters tournament. Then Conservatives could have boycotted it and used the old Anarchist/Feminist slogan ‘No Gods, no Masters.'”


More seriously, I wonder how many of those upset about this are aware that the pledge was originally written by a “Christian Socialist“. It’s very interesting to read up on the history of the Pledge, actually. But in any case, I honestly do think it was very silly of NBC to censor it. I really don’t understand what they thought was so offensive about it.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
