Perhaps in response to Rob Sherman’s atheist activism or his daughter’s recent (successful) campaign to get God Bless America off of the Homecoming Dance song list at her high school, the family evoked a response from the suburban Chicago community.
Their home was vandalized Friday night
Despite the fact that church bulletins were found I think it's clearly wrong to assume this was the doing of Christians. Messages scrawled in chalk mentioned a chap named "Jessus." Perhaps they should shove their anti-christian bigotry aside and go find this Jessus person so they can get to the bottom of this!
Frankly, I think it likely has nothing to do with the whole "God Bless America," matter either. Who wants a song like that at their school dance? The kids must be thanking Dawn Sherman for getting it pulled. It hasn't got a dance beat. Maybe you could slow dance to it but everyone knows slow dances are for feeling up your partner and how in the hell are you going to be in the mood for that with someone screeching about God in the background? I mean, just look at the lyrics:
Stand beside her, and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam...
Guide her? From the mountains? Foam?
Hmmmm. Might be suitable for copping a feel afterall. At the very least.
