    If you notice, every time she tried to say “Christmas”, it was censored…so instead, she said, “Mary, Chris, Mass”…three words she CAN say, which, put together…

    What pain? Who has ever censored the word “Christmas”?

    I don’t get this arc. Where are they preventing kids from saying or celebrating Christmas? Not in our New York schools, that’s for sure. Even though we have a sizable Jewish, Muslim and Sikh population, here’s of “Merry Christmas” wishing inside the schools. Oh, and our town has a Creche on the town hall lawn during the season (as well as other religion’s symbols during their special holy days).

    The elementary schools in my large mid-western city no longer have Christmas Vacation (Winter Break) or have Christmas Programs of any kind. I’m not an atheist and I resent this development.

    The war against religious beliefs is real. The cowardly Arizona governor proved that yesterday, subordinating religious beliefs to sexual practices.

    About once or twice a year, there will be a story in the media about a school (or even entire district) which will censor Christmas for fear of “offending” anyone.
    Even secular aspects of the holiday, like snowflake decorations, are generally forbidden lest someone get upset.
    This usually backfires spectacularly, as the kids and parents who do celebrate the holiday tend to vastly outnumber the kids and parents who don’t. In the end, all it does is bring negative publicity to the people behind the decision.

    Holiday traditions……

    The teacher was very curious about how each of her students’ celebrated Christmas Eve “Tell me Patrick O’Leary, what do you do on Christmas Eve?” she asked.
    Patrick addressed the class. “Well Miss, me and my twelve brothers and sisters go to midnight Mass and we sing hymns, then we come home very late and we put mince pies by the back door and hang up our stockings. Then all excited we go to bed and wait for Father Christmas to come with all our toys.”
    “Very nice Patrick, now Jimmy Brown, what do you do?”
    “Well Miss, me and my sister go to Church with Mum and Dad and we sing carols and we get home ever so late. We put cookies and milk by the chimney and we hang up our stockings. We hardly sleep waiting for Santa Claus to bring our presents.”
    Remembering there was a Jewish boy in the class and not wanting to leave him out of the discussion, she asked, “Now Morris Cohen, what do you do on Christmas Eve?”
    “Well Miss, it’s the same old thing every year. Dad comes home from the office. We all pile into the Rolls and drive to his toy factory. When we get inside we look at all the empty shelves and sing “What a friend we have in Jesus.” Then we go to the Bahamas."

    Here’s my deal. As I’ve said before, I couldn’t give a tat’s patootee if the schools say a single word about Christmas. Why? Because that’s not their job. Their job is to teach and not have to field self-righteous comments about what has happened to Christianity in this country. I AM a Christian, by the way, and resent like crazy oer Christians thinking that putting creches in school or saying “Merry Christmas” is a sign of anything at all. God knows the early Christians didn’t even celebrate Christmas. God does not care if you do or not. What scripture says that God cares far more about is how we treat the weak and poor and the foreigner in our midst. God cares about how we treat our employees, not whether or not your stupid Holiday Card says “Seasons Greetings.” I have worked in schools in at least three states and have never seen anyone get bugged about saying Merry Christmas – and that certainly is NOT a violation of the constitution for anyone, even a teacher to say. It is also not a violation for a community to make theor space available to religious (or other) community groups to display their special symbols during their special times. You can even legally allow a bible study in your school as long as you allow other groups the same access.
    If PC means politically correct (which really means politically expedient) then it seems the real PC folks are those who raise a stink about not being able to cram Christmas down others’ throats.
    Enough of the sermon – but geez, I’m sick of it.

    I replied in a longer post, but what I described is not unconstitutional, as it is not establishing in any way religious practice. My point was that the schools do not smack down people for saying things like Merry Christmas, and that the town makes space available for all groups to display their special symbols on their special days. As long as it’s open to everyone (NOT funded by the town, either), it’s okay, and I have no problems with it.

    A few years ago, several country artists got together and cut a “Politically Correct” Christmas song…it’s funny!!!

    this recurring theme is pathetic….tragic little self indulgent and rich American Christians who have the bizarre belief that they have the slightest clue what ‘discrimination’ means. Move to Egypt; live in Syria…or many other places to understand. Become Black, Jewish or gay. If you want to play martyr, there are real places you can move. Sad fools. JC would be embarrassed for them….if they even deserved any attention.
