A school in Massachusetts wants to dump the word ‘God’ in one of the country’s most patriotic songs.

(God bless the USA)
Lee Greewood’s “God Bless the USA” topped the charts in the 80’s and again following 9/11. And some parents in Bellingham, Massachusetts are outraged that a local school there want’s to remove God from the classic tune.
(Parents) “God is God and he is a big part of the society.” “I don’t have a problem with the song.”
The Stall Brook Elementary School wanted to replace “God bless the USA” with “we love the USA” but there’s been mixed reaction.
(Parent) “It’s a public school, if you want to have God in a song, go to a private school.”
Since school officials couldn’t make either side happy they made the decision to get rid of all songs during the school’s assembly.
