What's that you say? No war on Christmas? II

Christmas songs are considered to be a form of bullying, say anti-Christian fanatics.

A group of parents at Chief Charlo Elementary School are so upset over the selection of songs for the school’s holiday music program they are considering legal counsel.

The parents outlined their concerns in a letter sent to the superintendent of the Missoula County Public Schools district, stating, among many issues, they feel the programming is unfair, unconstitutional and is a form of bullying.

  • What would Christmas be without this war, it's part of it. Who could imagine Christmas without Scrooge or The Grinch? Like I wrote on 'The Quark in The Road', you could take the view point of the chambermaid and call them fanatics, or you could take the view point of the nephew/Bob Cratchet and invite them to Christmas dinner.

    Now let's talk about this war of Facebook..

  • Too many socialists working in the schools are we raising little Nazis or what.

    Facebook is for old timers or geezers.

  • "Anti-Christian fanatics?" I see it as an exercise of their first amendment right to petition their government. And, what they ask for doesn't seem that unreasonable to me. "They deserve to hold true to their own faith and not made to recite things they do not believe or have to be targeted by bringing it up."

    I wonder, what would you think if your children's public school were to honor Ramadan by having a mass recitation of Muslim prayer?

  • Relax. It's not a "mass recitation" of a Christian prayer. It's just a song. A Muslim song could be educational and promote diversity

  • In reply to Dennis Byrne:

    I'll pass your suggestion along to the Missoula Montana County Public School District

  • In reply to jnorto:

    If they're consistent, they'll reject that too. Which reminds me of Emerson's quote: "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines."
