This has been an issue with me for the longest time.. the national anthem!!! I have yet to rattle that little blurb off for what ever reason. Why the god thing had to get thrown into the mix is beyond me. Under god.. hell it sounds like some perverted statement... lol. How can we be Under anything when we are all over the place, no beginning no end. It kinda falls under the heading of why kids should have to say this in the classroom... what if some very intelligent parents raise their kids... umm Atheist!! Then what? How will the education system deal with that? Oh.. ya, take them to court for standing up for something they believe in. What happened to freedom of beliefs?
