The petitioners request that the playing of God Bless America at baseball games to honor service members or as a patriotic exercise be discontinued.
This petition had 76 supporters
Playing God Bless America at an otherwise secular and inclusive event forces spectators who are not religious, not Christian, or uncomfortable with public, forced displays of patriotism to either publicly participate in a religious or patriotic exercise or face harassment from other spectators by failing to participate. Spectators have experienced verbal harassment by fellow spectators for choosing not to participate in this religious exercise. The petitioners wish to prevent such harassment in the future and to ensure that all servicemembers are honored equally when such honors are appropriate.
