Posted on 12/02/2012 7:40:55 PM PST by massmike
Frosty the Snowman is there and so is Santa Claus. But the Baby Jesus is stuffed inside a closet at Cottondale Elementary School leaving many residents of this small town in the Florida panhandle outraged.
The Nativity scene had been a part of the schools holiday lawn decorations for years. But this year the yuletide display is strictly secular.
Principal Brenda Jones told television station WJHG the decision to keep Baby Jesus in the closet came after an official with the Dept. of Education dropped by to discuss the separation of church and state.
The Dept. of Education came in and talked to us about the legalities of religion in the school systems and the separation of the two, Jones told the television station.
In an attempt to be fair to everyone, the principal said, We decided that we would just not put the Nativity scene out on campus.
The decision has sparked controversy among the 869 residents who live in this gulf coast community. Officials with the Jackson County School Board did not return calls seeking comment.

More depressing stuff... Read it here.
My 15 year-old daughter was at a church function the other night - probably 50+ kids there. She and another girl were the only ones that new the words to the song “Frosty the Snowman”! I’m not sure if that’s bad or good.
Just where Obama likes newborns thrown/stuffed
But, wait! Santa Claus has got to go too! He is modelled upon a Christian saint! Can’t have that. No saints allowed. Sheesh! I am so tired of this crap! Home school! Home school! Home school!
How does the State know that “Jesus” is religious, and “Frosty the Snowman” is not?
>> an official with the Dept. of Education dropped by to discuss the separation of church and state.
Another dumb, Leftist piece of crap.
not the answer.
the answer is to raise your kids to be both politically and religiously aware of what’s going on in the school.
The only people I know that can home school are the rich or living in a log cabin in the woods.
Easier said than done partner considering I’m a single dad rasing two kids by myself.
Unless you would rather me go on welfare, live in government housing, take a bus everywhere and live on food stamps.
Frosty the Dope Man was a turned on dude by trade.
With a hashish pipe and a bag of grass and two keys, he made the grade.
Frosty the Dope Man was a pusher man they say.
Well he sold some snow and the kiddies know how it’s cut and how its made.
There must have been some magic in that old brown joint they found.
For when they lit the bugger up they began to dance around.
But Frosty the Dope Man was as rich as he could know.
And the kiddies say he could wheel and deal way down in Mayheeko.
Frosty the Dope Man knew the kids were into grass.
So he said, “smoke up, you’ll get really messed up with all this dynamite stash.”
Down through the Village, where you’ll find all of the heads.
Dealing here and there in Washington Square saying “do you want to by some reds?”
He went down to the streets of town right to the plain clothes cop.
But he only sold a little bit when he heard him holler “STOP”.
But Frosty the Dope Man couldn’t stop to socialize.
So he waved so long saying it’ll be long before you get any special buys.
Thumpity thump-thump, thumpity thump-thump
Look at Frosty go!
Thumpity thump-thump, thumpity thump-thump
Selling his hash and snow.
I’ve never heard of anyone asking: “How does the government know that ‘Jesus’ is a “religious” figure?” Is there some legally-binding government list of personages who are “religious” and those who are not? If so, what gives the government the right to compile such a list? Isn’t the keeping of such a list “an establishment of religion”?
Of course, what’s really going on is that “everybody knows” what is religious and what is not, and that the people who hate God are more determined to have their way than those who practice some religion.
Of course, none of the above applies if the religion is Islam. They get to do whatever they want. They are also exempt from Obamacare, though where they are going to get medical care once the system is destroyed is anybody’s guess.
Use the government schools if you want. Don’t homeschool if you don’t want to. But don’t spread myths about homeschooling, either. Only “the rich” or those who live in the woods can homeschool??? Please.
No Obozo wants babies thrown in the trash.
I understand that your situation would likely not allow you to homeschool, but my family, and most all the others we know that homeschool are neither rich, nor in the woods. We are generally single income families with the men working and the women staying at home with the kids.
Just wanted to clarify. All the best to you and your family.
Sorry, but I gave up on government schools long ago. I am a teacher. There is no hope for them.
Yep, Charlie Brown the real meaning of Christmas updated : its Frosty and Santa and shopping. Did the Santa figure look like Obama? Frosty like Michael Moore?
How about this :
Linus converts Charlie Brown to Islam giving him a book with the title ‘
Terrorism Islam for Dummies’
A parody of A Charlie Brown Christmas in which Charlie Brown converts to Islam and becomes a jihadist.
Denis Leary's parody of A Charlie Brown Christmas
Why do the godless leftists want to spoil the Jesus birthday party for us believers. They have a whole eternity to live without a baby Jesus. No Frosty Snowman there either.
The whole Dept of Education needs to be stuffed in the garbage.
to be “fair to everyone” school should be in session on Dec 25th
I'll take "How to suddenly make the teacher's union Very religious Very quickly,Alex!"
I’ve got a question. since Martin Luther King was a preacher...
are the same nuts that go after Nativity scenes going to try to ban celebration of Martin Luther King Day too?
Of course, that was back when Americans of their own volition worked together, before it became all the rage for everyone with a chip in their self centered little shoulders to sow discord wherever possible.
Actually it won’t be long before they ban “holiday” once they realize it’s an elision of “holy day”.
Dennis Leary huh. He is very politically incorrect. Yet I think he said he’s a dummycrap.
