-Singing Christmas Carols a “Form of Bullying”?

You might have missed this story over the weekend with the real tragedy and chaos surrounding the school shooting in Connecticut.

Apparently some parents consider singing Christmas carols in school to be a “form of bullying”? 

From Todd Starnes of Fox News:

A group of parents in Missoula, Mont. are upset over the religious nature of Christmas songs performed at a local elementary school – alleging the songs about the Baby Jesus is unconstitutional and a “form of bullying.”

The parents, who declined to be identified, are threatening to sue the Missoula County Public School District unless songs like “Joy to the World” and “Good Christian Men Rejoice” are replaced with secular tunes.

Response: Over the weekend we had two of our grandchildren over helping with the Christmas tree decorations and I started playing Christmas carols on the piano. I was shocked that our grandkids knew so few of the traditional Christmas songs. Then I remembered that they are no longer sung in the schools in our area. What a shame and what a loss. Now if they don’t sing them at home or church they will never learn the traditional songs of Christmas.

Also, the ‘winter concerts’ at schools in our area are careful to avoid any mention of Christmas or even Hanukkah for that matter. Who really thinks that this is better? Obviously some parents like those in Montana who consider songs of Christmas to be tantamount to bullying? Is America really going to be better in the future by ignoring and demonizing the religious foundations of our country? I hardly think so.            *Top
