American Family Association Biography

Position:
Pro to the question "Should the Words “under God” Be in the US Pledge of Allegiance?"
Reasoning:

“Acting on the complaint of a single atheist, two liberal judges have ruled that the Pledge of Allegiance is illegal because it contains the words ‘under God.’ Their ruling will be appealed. But you can be sure another atheist will try again and find another friendly liberal judge. We must stop this ‘political correctness,’ this effort to root God out of our history and society now while we have an opportunity.”
