Worthy Christian News » US News » Star-Spangled Petition: Saving the National Anthem
There's been a move afoot in recent years to replace "The Star-Spangled Banner" as America's national anthem with something less aggressive and involved with war.
Some want it changed because they think "The Star-Spangled Banner" is too hard to sing. But Manuel said others, both inside and outside the United States, are advocating for a change because they find the anthem too militaristic and aggressive.
"And it's really coming from a G-20 initiative originally where we've been asked to get rid of our national anthem because it's too militarily adversarial to our One World neighbors," she said.
Fourth Verse of Star Spangled Banner --
Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
