Long Island School Removes Words From Silent Night Too Offensive (Video)
Gateway Pundit ^ | 12/19/13 | Silent Night

For their Christmas Holiday concert Kings Park school in Long Island cut several religious references from their music. It was too offensive.

It’s an Obama world. “Silent Night” is now too offensive to sing at school. CBS Local reported:

The song “Silent Night” is at the heart of a concert controversy on Long Island.

Kings Park school officials removed several religious references, including “Holy infant” and “Christ the Savior,” from the popular Christmas carol before a student concert last week, WCBS 880′s Mike Xirinachs reported.

The intent was to avoid offending non-Christians, but the change left others upset.

“I’m not too happy with that, it’s kind of insulting,” parent Robert Dowd said.

Nobody minds offending Christians, because they know we won’t kill them or blow them up.

Too bad “Silent Night” is public domain.

Try such bu#$h!t with a copyrighted song and you could be hit with a lawsuit for infringement.

The more Christians are vilified the stronger they/we get. Christ's Church is the oldest living institution in human history. It will be around until our good God says: ENOUGH.

I've always thought that on THAT day the trouble in the middle east will FINALLY end.

How they’ve twisted the word “offensive” into meaning “anything we don’t want ourselves or anyone else to know”.

Not for me. I intend on being a GOOD girl until my end.
Maybe the trouble will just be the beginning for you...that's not my problem. God will take care of everything...it will be the END, unless you think that God can't handle it.

But it’s just fine, for your kids, without your permission or knowledge, to be taught the finer points of sodomite practices in their government indoctrination centers. I will never understand what could be so important to parents that they would put their precious children in the hands of that bunch to be “educated”.

I grew up on Long Island, too. We had Christmas trees, Christmas carols, etc. in the public schools....no problem.

My cousin is an elementary school teacher on Long Island and she told me about some of the PC crap that goes on nowadays.

By the way, she votes Republican and despises Obama.

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
