At least that’s the world envisioned in the new CW show “Star-Crossed.”

On Monday night’s premiere, which you can watch here since the CW doesn’t believe in embedding, there’s a scene that features humans pledging allegiance to the flag while members of the alien race (“Atrians”) remain seated. The scene begins around the 14:16 mark:

Why Won’t Michael Farris Respond to Allegations of Sexual Assault at Patrick Henry College?

Days after Kiera Feldman‘s expose of sexual assault at the conservative Christian Patrick Henry College, Chancellor Michael Farris can’t figure out how to respond to the piece.

On his Facebook page, when confronted with a question about allegations made in the article, Farris tried to respond, in part, by claiming he doesn’t run the school (that he founded and is chancellor of…) and that the piece is inaccurate (without further elaboration):
