School Intimidated Into Dropping Daily “God Bless America” Declaration
A Pennsylvania elementary school principal has been forced to stop saying “God Bless America” over the school loudspeaker, thanks to the intimidation of an organization apparently committed to deleting First Amendment guaranteed religious expression from the public square.

Principal Peter Brigg was accustomed to declaring “God Bless America” after leading students and staff in a daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance at Sabold Elementary School in Springfield, Pennsylvania. But a parent supposedly complained to the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), which sent a threatening letter to the Springfield school district demanding that the practice be halted immediately.

Claiming that the phrase “God Bless America” originated with the patriotic Irving Berlin song made iconic by singer Kate Smith and amounted to a prayer, an FFRF attorney insisted to the district that a prayer “hosted by a ...

That’s so funny and yet so true!😁

"But a parent supposedly complained to the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), which sent a threatening letter to the Springfield school district demanding that the practice be halted immediately."

Or else what? The principal caves at a threat from the "Freedom From Religion Foundation"? Their very name reveals they are anti first Amendment, the free exercise of religion. The principal apparently doesn't know his Bill of Rights. A shame to be so high up in the school system, and not know basic things.

Satan's followers are working hard to eject every vestige of Bible from the community.

Satan obviously has complete dominion over their hearts and minds.

1John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil."

Freedom of speech and freedom of religion is torn out of the constitution and out of the hearts of America.

God Bless America. Amen.
