Furthermore, I am surprised that Mr. Turney calls himself both religious and a patriot. How can he be distressed by "under God" being religious? Is he able to sing or listen to our national anthem? There is a couple of references to God in it. Is he distressed by the remaining two songs, competing with the anthem, "America the Beautiful" and "God Bless America"? In both, references to God are frequent. If he cannot sing or listen to our patriotic songs he should not call himself a patriot. There is much better word describing this attitude: hypocrisy.
