On the contrary; they were just correcting the quote from the pledge of allegiance. ;D

Notice the atheist chose the Billy Graham parkway for their billboard. ;)

OH, BTW are you showing your solidarity with this atheist group? Watch out someone may label you.

I didn't like when people defaced religious objects, and since I am not much of a hypocrite, don't really approve of that either.

Some business owner is paying out of pocket (or insurance is) because of some asshat with a can of paint, so I'm definitely not going to tout it as a good thing.

It boils down to a respect thing to me.

Exactly.  Our right to free speech does protect the billboard but it does not protect the vandals unauthorized editing of the billboard.  If religious groups want to make a statement, let them dig into the church coffers and buy their own billboard.  

And no Todd, I'm not showing solidarity with anyone, merely supporting the idea to remove the religious influence that was added to the Pledge of Allegiance in the 1950s.  It was not what was intended and it should be removed and the Pledge recited in classrooms again.

Correct, it was added I believe in '54 to the cheers of most people. It has been in the official Pledge for 56 years. It is the pledge that most people remember saying in school in the morning.

So you were there to hear them cheer in 1954?  You god much be powerful if he can let you hear things that happened 12 years before you were born.  Once again, stating facts not in evidence.

I agree, just something you don't see everyday

Actually my parents were in high school when it happened. They said everyone was thrilled that our country was recognizing it's Christian roots. That is eye witness evidence to the event. That is pretty good evidence.

Sorry, I pledge my allegiance to the goddamned (as George W. Bush might say) Constitution of the United States, not a piece of cloth. :)

And if any of you guys remember right, the Pledge was written by a socialist because worshipping a flag, and giving it more power than the people it represents, is the social-fascist thing to do...

I consider the flag to be a symbol of everything this country stands for.

So Todd, the bible teaches vandalism of personal property if you feel it's the right thing to do?

You're becoming more and more of an extremist every day.

Can't wait to see you marching with those Westboro nuts on the news some morning...
