It was only a couple of weeks ago when Senator Ted Cruz told the audience at a Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators conference that he played a significant role in keeping “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance.
That was a lie. After Justice Antonin Scalia recused himself from the case, 5 of the 8 remaining justices dismissed the case altogether saying that Newdow didn’t have proper standing to bring the case to court. There was no official ruling on the case’s merits. Cruz didn’t “win” anything.
