Tyson had a little fun with the Pledge of Allegiance. You’d think he was mocking Jesus Christ.

Earlier this week, Tyson offered his thoughts on Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act, telling the Daily Beast that homophobia “almost always entirely stems from religion” and that the state’s religious legislators should remind themselves that other people have different belief systems that might contradict theirs.

And on Thursday, he tweeted an alternative version of the Pledge of Allegiance:

This made conservative prove the very point Tyson was making.

Divided? Who’s divided?

    If you talk about gays, religion & abortion, repukes almost all the time go berserk.

      It seems to be all that they think about. They really should go get some help.

    Who says that conservatives don’t have a sense of humor

    I was having a bit of fun with those morons on twitter……what I noticed is that these sad little hateful creatures immediately discounted Tyson as a scientist.

    according to them Tyson is stupid and unqualified. …just a show off….

    some of this may be racism but I think a lot of it is pure jealously.

    it’s shameful.

      They “believe” that if those Scientists were so smart, they would be Rich and on “The Lurnin’ Channel” like those “Ice Road Truckers” and “The Dugars”.

    It doesn’t take much to draw out a hateful moron

    Conservatives by definition are outraged. It’s their only hobby.It’s their whole reason for living.

  9. cecilia April 4th, 2015 at 11:49 am

    wow, that’s the very definition of UNeducated.

      We had a similar thing happen here with a Midwife who wanted to teach pregnant women meditation techniques to relax. Since all of our health care system here is run by the catholic church, that was a non-starter.

      • cecilia April 4th, 2015 at 2:21 pm

        meditation is now a religion?

        jesus, mary and Joesph!

        • bluejayray April 4th, 2015 at 9:06 pm

          I told my landlady that I was using meditation to help me sleep–she seriously looked at me and told me that she hoped that I would consider Jesus–SAY WHAT? These simpletons have been told that if you meditate or do yoga, that you are letting the devil in. Seriously.

          • cecilia April 4th, 2015 at 9:27 pm

            these people are being left behind….the 21st century is whooshing past them

      • Tazru333 April 4th, 2015 at 2:26 pm

        The Roman Catholic Church can’t promote Meditation, then it would be more like their old enemy, the Greek Orthodox Church! 😀

        • bluejayray April 4th, 2015 at 9:04 pm

          Yes–no meditation and clearing of the mind–you want to just chant hail marys over and over and fill your mind with static….

    Sure doesn’t take much for the nut jobs to get their panties in a wad.
