Yep, I'm proud of this country. I fly the American flag daily. And when I die, there will be a flag covering my coffin.
EDIT - I read your post wrong and got the wrong meaning out of it.... - EDIT
Jehovah Witnesses believe in a god, there would be no reason for them to be upset by that, the wording of "under god" is primarily an attack on atheism as that is the biggest threat to the christian majority.
THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE WITH THE FLAG, it's with forcing people to say they pledge allegiance to a country "under god", I WILL NOT pledge allegiance to a theocracy under god, and it's only motive is to move us towards that end, for people then to later say god is on our money and our pledge, we must be a christian nation and as you can see, sadly that is working.
