Why so vehement?

I just don't get why anyone would care if a famous person makes up a different version of the pledge of allegiance and posts it online. You can disagree with what he says, but why did it generate such a passionate response (with so few of the critics arguing with any particular point in Tyson's post)?

I just don't understand how that post would raise the hackles of anyone, Is the pledge some magical collection of words that makes tampering with it blasphemous?
