What Happened To "Under GOD"?
Last comment by lholmes 7 months, 4 weeks ago.

Take Me To Post Comment Form

Being the sci-fi junkie that I am, I watched the premiere of their new show "Starcrossed" on the CW Network. On first glance, it seems to be a mix of Roswell, Alien Nation and whatever teenage angst show out there, focusing on integrating aliens (from space) into our society. The scene that ticked me off was that the "aliens" were bussed in under guard to a high school and into a typical classroom where the students proceeded to say The Pledge Of Allegiance. Curiously missing from the pledge were the 2 words "under GOD". Vanished! Deleted! Omitted! As some may have noticed, I have been absent from posting, though I have been reading here. I haven't been watching much news anywhere else because it's just so depressing. This drew me back in. When did they start doing this?

Glad your back.

Welcome Back lholmes! Wondered what happened to you. Do not know about the show. Did not see it. I would boycott the show if what you said happened. And....maybe email the show with your concerns.

I couldn't finish watching the show. I was that ticked off.

I mean, this really got under my skin. On this same network, they have shows like "Supernatural, Vampire Diaries and The Originals", all dealing with witches, demonic entities and the like, yet "Under God" cannot be aired. What's going on? Bizarro world.

Iholmes, I am in complete agreement with you.

I remember when "Under God" was added to the pledge.

Even as children we were pleased with the change.

Our highly educated liberals have driven God out of our schools and now our younger generations are embracing all manner of deviation and we indeed now have a

"BIZARRO WORLD"

Ooohhh Tot! Them pesky Liberals just want go away will they? Forever to be your favorite whipping boy! What to do, What to do??!!

"Our highly educated (education bad - dumb good)liberals have driven God out of our schools..." sayeth Tot.

You see Tot, it is these sweeping generalizations of yours that confirms your idiocy. I am a Liberal that believes in God and see nothing wrong with keeping God in the pledge of allegiance.

Tot: it is better to be thought to be stupid, rather than open your mouth(type words) and remove all doubt.

Your unself-aware buffoonish expressions are ongoing highly visible ADVERTISEMENTS of reckless un-educated ignorance.

No, those pesky liberals WON'T go away - but when it comes to UNDER GOD, they should.

"Our highly educated liberals have driven God out of our schools and now our younger generations are embracing all manner of deviation and we indeed now have a

"BIZARRO WORLD"

Along with this, the Democrats have driven God out of their party platform and want to excise all things Godly from this country's "establishment" under the guise of separation of church and state.

If I join the ranks of the stupid buffoons with my opinion, I WELCOME IT.

(And welcome back, lholmes - we've missed you.)

thanks! Don't know how long I will stay this time.
