The war on Christmas is simply the December version of the war on God that is happening the other 12 months. And nowhere is this war hotter than the battles over the next generation taking place in your friendly neighborhood democrat factory down the street. Here we have one installment in that war from a Fox News Opinion Article:
The latest yuletide lunacy comes from Johnson County, Kentucky where the school district has censored an elementary school presentation of “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”
The district also ordered other schools to remove all religious references from their upcoming Christmas productions.
At one school, “Silent Night” was replaced with a Christmas version of the “Whip/Nae Nae” song.
Yes, good readers — apparently that is a real thing.
“How do you go from ‘Silent Night’ to the ‘Whip/Nae Nae,’” one distraught grandmother asked me. “We’re not at all happy about it.”
Teachers at W.R. Castle Elementary School were directed to remove the moving scene where Linus shares the true meaning of Christmas by reading from the Gospel of Luke.
Superintendent Tom Salyer confirmed to me that the entire passage was excised from the program after the district received a single complaint.
“We’re not reading that, sir,” Salyer told me. “It disappoints men that we have to do this.”
The superintendent, who said he is a church-going man, said he was simply following the advice of school district attorneys.
So how can the schoolhouse live up to its dogmatic insistence that it be “inclusive”, then exclude the traditions of the culture in which the schoolhouse is emmersed? It’s because Christmas time is a time of Christmas songs. And Christmas song point to a Christ. And the Christ claims to to above the state, not below it. And the state is NEVER going to go for that. The statist, in the name of the state, will be the arbiter of right and wrong, not Jesus. And anything that paints Jesus in a positive light simply will not be tolerated; not at Christmas time, and not any time.
But you have the option of sending your child to a school that can speak of Jesus all you want. And it can teach real tolerance, and real inclusion so that your child doesn’t grow up thinking that intolerance is tolerance and exclusion is inclusion, and that sodomy is marriage, and that gender is a figment of one’s imagination, and that the state is god and on and on. You can do that, if you want to. And it’s much easier than you would think.
