(WBRE/WYOU-TV) A simple phrase is dividing a Delaware County Community.
Until recently it was a tradition for the principal at Sabold Elementary School in Springfield to say God Bless America over the school speakers after leading the Pledge of Allegiance.
But after a parent complained to a Religion Watch Dog group. Lawyers got involved — and the school district decided God Bless America can no longer be said over the PA system.
People on both sides are speaking out.
However, the argument of whether it’s a First Amendment Issue or a case of religious expression being trampled on continues.
