Trying to define Christmas without Christ is like trying to define the Democratic party without mentioning crimes. It can’t be done, but that’s what Robious Middle School in Midlothian, Virginia has done.
They are banning all references to Jesus. I can understand why though. They are Democrats and they don’t want the constant reminder that their beliefs will keep them out of Heaven. It also explains why so many conservatives are Christians. Every conservative wants to enjoy eternity without liberals. The school makes the claim that they don’t want Jesus mentioned because they don’t want to trigger their diverse student population.
I call bulls*#t.
David Allen, the father of a student at Robious Middle School, has expressed his concernover the exclusion of Jesus from Christmas songs to be performed at school Christmas concerts.
Allen said students were forbidden from singing a particular carol “because the word Jesus was in there and apparently someone assumed it was of a sacred nature.”
According to Allen, it seems as if “everywhere you look everyone’s afraid of stepping on someone’s toes or everything is being so sensitive.”
In an email exchange with Allen, the school’s choir director said that the Jesus ban stems from problems experienced by students.
“We had a few students who weren’t comfortable singing a piece I have done many times in the past, but it is of a sacred nature and does mention Jesus,” the choir director wrote.
While this exchange was going on, Allen said he had received a “diversity notice” from the school explaining their commitment to diversity and inclusion, which struck him as paradoxical.
How much do you want to bet they allow Muslims to mention the Prophet?
