    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.

    Yes, “damn that secular Constitution.” There are those that have been turning us into a religious state. So they can’t sing it on school grounds during school hours. BD. They can do it everywhere else. The fundamentalists want govt recognition.

    @rpmurray

    If the Jews don’t celebrate it, why do Christians?

    @cdward

    Just shows that violation of our Constitution & Bill of Rights continues. That is what it means.

    So they go to school, then? Never heard of that. So they get more Summer time off then?

    Nothing cowardly about your governor stopping persecution and religious bigotry from illegally and unconstitutional become the law in Arizona.

    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.
