Sound Off: "Under God"

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

This year's U.S. Open Golf championship was dominated by Rory McIlroy.

McIlroy set lots of records with his brilliant performance.

I wish the same could be said for NBC.

NBC opened the U.S. Open coverage with a patriotic salute showing a mix of military scenes and children reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

Good idea until some moron decided to edit out "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance.

Someone wanted to be politically correct.

Bad decision!

Either say the entire Pledge of Allegiance or don't say it at all.

While we are on the subject when you sing the Star Spangled Banner don't invent your own version, sing it as it was written or don't sing it at all.

The Pledge of Allegiance and the Star Spangled Banner embody the values our country was founded on and any change of either is simply unpatriotic.
