Christian Country Song in School?
Highest Court M.D. Florida
Year Ended 2009
Plaintiffs Individual(s)
Defendants Municipal Entity and/or Official(s)
Public Shool(s)
Other Diamond Rio
Short Description The family of a child sued to enjoin the practicing and performance of a song by country music artist, Diamond Rio, called "In God We Trust," which is absurdly favorable to religion, even saying "There are those among us who want to push [God] out and erase His name from everything," but that "it's time for all believers to make our voices heard," and "Here in America He's the one we turn to." Obviously, this cannot pass the Lemon test for state actions, which requires them to be secular in intent and impact, and the court granted the family's injunction. - LSW
