NJ Elementary School: Saying 'God Bless America' Is Unconstitutional

Can you imagine transporting back in time to September 17, 1787, and telling the Founding Fathers that the Constitution they had just signed would be interpreted as prohibiting American students from saying "God bless America" after a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in their school?

Sadly, if you had a time machine, you could do just that.

According to CBS Philly, Haddon Heights Elementary School students in New Jersey have chanted "God Bless America" after ever morning recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in honor of 9/11 first responders.

At least, they have until now.

“It never, to us, invoked any type of religious intentions. It was basically a patriotic gesture that the boys and girls were doing,” said principal Sam Sassano after receiving a letter from the ACLU, claiming that the students' chant was unconstitutional.

How did the school respond to this attack on patriotism and religion?

Unlike the early patriots of our country, they surrendered and gave into the ACLU rather than risk fighting an expensive legal battle.

What do you think the Founding Fathers would say to that?
