CNN: American Morning
November 16, 2009
John Roberts interviews 10-year-old Will Phillips, who refuses to pledge allegiance to the flag until LGBT people have equal rights. Phillips: "I looked at the end and it said 'with liberty and justice for all.' And there really isn't liberty and justice for all. Gays and lesbians can't marry." [Link]

MediaCurves.com conducted a study among 328 viewers of a new clip discussing a student who refuses to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance in support of gay marriage. The majority of viewers (66%) reported that the student should not be forced to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance. While the majority of respondents supported the student after watching the video, prior to viewing the video, the majority of viewers (65%) indicated that students “should be” forced to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.
