Pennsylvania Principal Forced to Stop Saying ‘God Bless America’ | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Pennsylvania Principal Forced to Stop Saying ‘God Bless America’

A district in Pennsylvania has prohibited an elementary school principal from saying ‘God Bless America’ after the Pledge of Allegiance, following a single parental complaint on the practice.

Peter Brigg, the principal at Sabold Elementary School, had made a practice of saying the phrase as part of his morning routine for several years.

A parent at the school somehow took offense to Brigg’s patriotic statement, filing a complaint with the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

“When a public school regularly proclaims, ‘God bless America,’ it sends a message to its students that the school is endorsing and compelling belief in God,” the group wrote in a letter.

They argued it violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment of the Constitution
