Student reprimanded for saying “God Bless America”

A Florida high school student was disciplined after a national atheist organization took offense when he concluded the morning announcements by saying “God Bless America,” Todd Starnes of Fox News reports.

A spokesperson for the Nassau County School District told Starnes the student at Yulee High School deviated from the approved script on the morning of Feb. 9th and uttered the words “God Bless America” — apparently causing angst among two atheist students.

Instead of reporting their angst to the principal, the atheist students reached out to the American Humanist Association. The AHA’s legal arm – the Appignani Humanist Legal Center — fired off a testy letter to the principal and school district on the students’ behalf.
