 Anthem 4 England - News and Opinion
It is wrong for England not to have its own National Anthem (there appear to be three popular alternatives: Land of Hope & Glory, Jerusalem & Rule Britannia) instead effectively hi-jacking God Save the Queen (which belongs to all Nations of the UK and the Commonwealth).
By this logic England would have two anthems, God Save the Queen for when we are competing against countries unfortunate enough not to have the Queen on their banknotes, and an English anthem for when we are competing against countries that share the same head of state (Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Canada, Australia, etc.).
And therein lies the real problem with Rosindell’s plan, for whilst the English and Northern Irish fans are fairly well disposed towards singing God Save the Queen, the Scots and Welsh (especially in football and rugby) have not sung it for years.

The Queen has been saved - or at least the official tribute to her at the Commonwealth Games has been.
After a week of lobbying for God Save the Queen to be played at the opening ceremony, Games organisers confirmed a portion of the royal anthem would be sung as a mark of respect for Queen Elizabeth.
"(God Save the Queen) doesn't replace Advance Australia Fair, so you might hear a few bars of the royal anthem as part of a tribute to the Queen, but it's not ever played in its entirety," said Andrew Walsh, artistic director of the opening and closing ceremonies.

 The Revealer: God Save the Queen
The reluctant queen releases her body from its carnal impulses of self-preservation, and becomes the paragon of faithful obedience that fate conspired her to be.
Rather they saw the reluctant Queen Esther struggling to come to terms with the abrupt realization that she is implicated in a drama much larger than herself.
Since evangelicals believe in a living God whose hand moves in history even today, it is correct to note that Esther teaches that we are all called to play roles in the historical work of God that demand personal sacrifice and the willingness to take risks in the service of faith.

 *** Save the Queen | Cosmic Variance
Someone apparently thought that somebody should be shielded from hearing the word “God,” but I honestly don’t know if it was for fear of having the Lord’s name taken in vain, or dislike for heavy-handed religiosity.
I saw The Queen in theaters, and the only mentions of “God” I recall were when people were talking about how she believes she is the monarch because it is God’s will.
I can see cutting “homosexuals” since it could be seen as slightly offensive, but the “God” references couldn’t really be construed as offensive to anyone, including atheists/agnostics like me (unless, I suppose, I suppose very conservative Jews might object to the use of a name at all).
