Sept. 11 memorial ordered to remove word 'God'
(Murfreesboro, Tennessee-AP) -- A city official in Murfreesboro,
Tennessee, doesn't like the phrase "God Bless America" on a
nine-eleven memorial at a fire station
City Manager Roger Haley says it improperly mixes government and
religion. He says no one from the city approved the display set up
by firefighters. So he ordered it changed to what he says would be
more appropriate for public property.
The memorial at Murfreesboro Fire Station Number Six now
consists of a model of the World Trade Center towers and the edited
phrase "Bless America."
Not everyone is happy. Firefighter Dwight Ogleton says he's
offended, because he believes in God.
