After the parents objected to the school's decision, the school officials issued a statement saying that no songs would be performed because of "political correctness." After more confusion and protests, the superintendent released a statement that students would be allowed to sing or not sing "God bless the U.S.A.", whatever each kid preferred. Meanwhile, Lee Greenwood issued a statement saying: "The most important word in the whole piece of music is the word God, which is also in the title, 'God Bless the U.S.A.' The song is played at every naturalization ceremony behind the National Anthem. If the song is good enough to be played and performed in its original setting under those circumstances, it surely should be good enough for our children."
Christians had better wake up and realize the determination of the secularists to censor out every public and school reference to God. The First Amendment does not require that, and we shouldn't let school officials to get by with such offensive decisions, saying they just want to be politically correct.
