Mennonites have long history of separation from state


GOSHEN - Goshen College's decision to not play the national anthem before sporting events has raised eyebrows across the country, with national media outlets picking up the story and their patrons responding both to the college and on various news sites.

The college first began playing an instrumental version of the Star Spangled Banner in March 2010 with the plan to review the decision this summer. The college's announcement last Monday to look for an alternative to the national anthem to play before sports has been met with a mix of responses.
