School’s religious message inappropriate

Dear editor,

I was disappointed to see that Jemison High School has been displaying the phrase “God Bless America” on its marquee near Highway 31.

Public schools and other government entities are legally obligated to remain neutral on issues of religion. Think about it: How would you feel if it read “Allah Bless America?”

There is no lack of church marquees in the county that can freely express religious messages.
