What is the debate question? Are you wondering if it was overly PC to leave out the "Under God" in the initial segment, or if it was overly PC to make the statement explaining it?
On a unrelated note, I love Rory, and I love Congressional I was so thrilled for him yesterday.
Do you think that NBC was being overly PC to omit "under God"?
No, because I think that choosing to omit "Under God" was not politically correct.
No. I think it's funny that people are in an uproar about it.
They certainly got the media's attention. I wonder if that was what they were going for. I don't care. I do think it's better to try and get it changed legally rather than play around with something that is supposed to represent the USA. Why did they leave out one nation and indivisible? Why apologize?
The pledge is the pledge, regardless of when it was last "updated." The fact is that, until someone decides to change it again, it should undoubtedly be said that way that it's currently written... period. Yes, I think people have gotten way too sensitive with the "under God" part, meaning that if you don't like it, don't say it... but don't change it by editing when it's not your job to do so.

It reminds me of the outrage over ~ what was it ~ the Republicans reading something with something omitted ~ Bill of rights? Constitution? I forget. I get why people who are deeply religious take something that they perceive to be overt like that personally. I don't as I am not, but I get it. People want to know "why".
