I read the article about the school children singing “God Bless the USA” and the reaction of those people who tried to stop them from doing so [“‘Burn in hell’ for singing ‘God Bless the USA'”].

I laud the teacher(s), assuming they were such, for letting the kids sing. I’m trying to grasp what part of the song the protesters were in opposition to – the “God” part or the “USA” part. Maybe they haven’t heard, but in spite of Obama trying to make the USA a socialistic country, he and they can be sure We the People still have the right of religious beliefs and are very much pro-USA, as designed in the Constitution.

It’s the old process of some people trying to keep others from speaking out, or in this case, singing out, their beliefs. I may not like their actions, but I do believe they have that right as much as the kids singing. What they don’t have is the right to stop the kids from expressing their beliefs and desire to belt out the song. God bless them!
