Christianists Come Unglued Over NBC’s Intro to the US Open

Evidently the excrement hit the fan when a patriotic montage at the start of the broadcast was edited so that the words “under god” were omitted from the “Pledge of Allegiance.”

I swear…some people look for reasons to be offended. One of the commentators, Dan Hicks, offered a cringing, on-air apology, although I seriously doubt that it will be enough for people determined to see it as part of some anti-American conspiracy.

I like Phil Plait’s take on the kerfuffle.
