Virginia School District – No, You Can’t Sing Christmas Carols that Mention Christ
A Midlothian, Virginia school district has banned the singing of Christmas carols that mention Christ. Because somebody doesn’t like it. Because last year, “some students were uncomfortable.”
Robious Middle School in Midlothian, Virginia has banned carols that mention the name of Jesus. They’re doing that because of the school’s increasingly “diverse nature.” They want to be more “sensitive” to the needs of students.
It’s not about “needs.” It’s not even about being “sensitive.” It’s about students being allowed to experience all that Christmas is and what has been part of AMERICAN culture for centuries. If someone is here in America, they need to be drawn IN to the celebration of Christmas. If they are that “uncomfortable” let them leave. It’s America, plain and simple.
It’s also about an agenda to destroy Christmas for everyone else based on the emotions of a few. Democrats favor secular expressions, Republicans think “Merry Christmas” is fine.
Attorney Michael Berry of First Liberty Institute wrote a letter to the Chesterfield County School District, of which Robious Middle School is a part, explaining that that, legally, public schools have no reason to ban Jesus from Christmas concerts or other celebrations.
“Federal courts have upheld the constitutionality of public school holiday programs that include the use of religious music, art, or drama,” Berry wrote, “so long as the material is presented in an objective manner ‘as a traditional part of the cultural and religious heritage of the particular holiday.’”…
…In 2016, a Washington DC-based research group found that Democrats overwhelmingly favor the more politically correct expressions of “Happy Holidays” or “Seasons Greetings” over the religiously charged “Merry Christmas” that acknowledges the reason for the festivities.
The group found that Democrats oppose ‘Merry Christmas’ more than 2-1 over Republicans.
There is only ONE reason for the Christmas holiday: that is to celebrate the Birth of Jesus Christ. Christ+mas: Birth of Christ. Whether or not it was originally a pagan holiday is irrelevant, it’s ours now. The Christmas carols of old are filled with the joy and wonder of the birth of the Christ Child. The Son of God who came to save the World. “Red, and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight.” Whether everyone believes it or not is irrelevant and will not change the Truth.
