We've Got Justice and the American Way. Can Truth Be Far Behind?


Contrary to a TV ad sponsored by the Committee for Justice, a People for the American Way (PFAW) spokesman says the group never took a position on the God-fortified Pledge of Allegiance. According to The New York Times, PFAW "considered the question too close to call because the phrase could be read to be merely ceremonial and not coercive." Although the Times doesn't say, I'm guessing PFAW also does not really "support partial birth abortion" or "sanction the burning of the American flag," as opposed to thinking both should be legal. Meanwhile, PFAW and its allies are sponsoring two commercials that urge us not to allow the Supreme Court to fall into the hands of the "radical right wing."
