Florida High School 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.”

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, as seen below.


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

“It wasn’t part of the scripted morning announcements,” district spokesperson Sharyl Wood said. “The principal took the appropriate steps in speaking with the student and disciplining the student.”

Disciplining the student? What’s the penalty these days for asking God to bless America – 30 lashes?
