I have a question I hope someone can answer for me. Has “America the Beautiful” replaced “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the national anthem? I have noticed that whenever “America the Beautiful” is played, many people place their hand over their heart, as they are supposed to do when the “The Star-Spangled Banner” is played.

As far as I know, the “The Star-Spangled Banner” is still the national anthem. It may be that it is not politically correct to play it for the liberal mind-set, as it pertains to war.

So, has the “The Star-Spangled Banner” been sent to the dungheap, along with God, school prayer, civics, parental rights and civil behavior?
