‘God’ censored in 1st grader’s Veteran’s Day poem
MARION, N.C. — Just 25 miles from a North Carolina college that censored the phrase “Christmas trees” before reversing course last week, an elementary school has removed a sentence referring to “God” from a 1st-grader’s poem commemorating her grandfathers’ military service.
The school forced the student to remove the sentence prior to presenting the poem at a Veteran’s Day ceremony last month.
The censored sentence, referring to one of her grandfathers who served during the Vietnam War, read, “He prayed to God for peace, he prayed to God for strength.”
Alliance Defending Freedom sent a letter Friday on behalf of McDowell County residents who are concerned that similar acts of unconstitutional censorship could occur again.
