Patriotic Student is Scolded by Liberal Teachers for What?!

USA Flag 1992

Another day, another example of how liberal teachers are punishing students for daring to express patriotism.

Down in Florida, Fox News’ Todd Starnes has uncovered the story of a student at Yulee High School, who was reprimanded by teachers after saying “God Bless America” when he finished reading the morning announcements.

Apparently, this traditional phrase upset two atheist students, who ran crying to the American Humanist Association (AHA). They soon sicced their lawyers on the school board.

The AHA were upset by the reference to God and claimed it violated the Constitution. In response, the principal “disciplined” the student for the crime of uttering a saying tens of millions of Americans use all the time.

Is this another attack on free speech? Let us know in the comments below.

    Most atheists really don’t care what silly superstitions you want to believe in or what deities you think will protect you or our country. I’m surprised that there is an organization out there so ridiculous that it would think that suppressing the rights of others would somehow make them more free.

    They are no longer schools,they are indoctrination centers,since Obummer took office they get only the liberal slant now!

    The Constitution doesn’t prohibit those three words or any others. In fact the First Amendment does just the opposite in guaranteeing each individual the right to speak freely. No where does the U.S. Constitution guarantee anyone any protection from being exposed to any words, thoughts or ideas, your legal system has just managed to fool everyone into believing such a lie.

    I don’t believe the student was acting on behalf of the school so anything he said shouldn’t be limited by the school’s obligations. Try pushing back once in a while instead of running at the first sign of confrontation.

    It has always been about subverting our country, look it up that’s treason, yet no one ever get’s charged with that and where is the word separation in the 1st amendment? Even the meaning of the 1st amendment has been subverted and allowed to stand and that should be revisited by the supreme court.

    TO ALL SCHOOLS…I AM SO SICK AND TIRED OF HEARING KIDS SENT HOME OR REPRIMANDED FOR STUPID THINGS. THEIR CLOTHES, HAIR CUTS, BOOK OF KNOWLEDGE BROUGHT TO SCHOOL AND THEIR FREEDOM OF SPEECH. YOU ARE THERE TO TEACH CHILDREN NOT TO TELL THEM WHAT RELIGION OR PARTY OF POLITICS. THAT IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. TEACH THEM MATH ENGLISH SOCIAL STUDIES ETC. AND IF THESE 2 LITTLE ONES WANT TO CRY TO THE PRINCIPAL. THEN LET THE OTHER KIDS DO THE SAME. SEE HOW THE MAIN MAN LIKES THAT. I THOUGHT THIS WAS STILL AMERICA WE LIVED IN BUT I WONDER SOMETIMES. AND I WONDER WHAT TEACHERS ARE TEACHING OUR CHILDREN. RELIGION IS A PERSONAL AND FREE MATTER I THOUGHT/ IF I WANT TO SAY GOD BLESS AMERICA.. I HAVE SAID IT FOR 70 YEARS NOW AND I WILL CONTINUE TO SAY IT. AND IF SOME LITTLE CRY BABIES WANT TO GO TO ADULTS AND CRY THEN BRING THEM ON. TO ALL OF YOU …GOD BLESS AMERICA AND AMEN.

  13. David says:

    GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Students do not check their free speech at the school house door. It is not individuals who are prohibited from mentioning religion. It is the Federal Gov’t who must not endorse a particular religion. A student is not a gov’t employee, therefore the student retains the right to free religious expression even in a formal public setting!

    1. Gary says:

      Please ow me ANYWHERE in the Constituion or law where it states what you claim. It is NOT a law nor does it state such a thing in the constitution. we are a country of FREEDOM OF RELIGION AND THE FREE EXERCISE OF IT. Not a freedom from being offended.
