If you’re watching the U.S. Open championship (because you really like golf… or you lost the remote… dammit, where’s my remote?), then you might have caught a nice little surprise in NBC’s introduction, when they said the Pledge of Allegiance:
“Under God” was just skipped over (so was “indivisible”), so it went like this:
ONE NATION… [Soldier noises]… WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.
Twitter’s currently in an uproar over this.
***Update***: Apparently, the Pledge was said twice, both versions omitting the “Under God” part:First time:
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, with liberty and justice for all.
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, with liberty and justice for all.
***Update 2***: The commentators just apologized for the omission on the air, calling it “an editing mistake.”
