If jolly old Saint Nick were a real person who had a real naughty and nice list, Nebraska school principal Jennifer Sinclair would most definitely be getting nothing but coal in her stocking this year.
Sinclair has went on an anti-Christmas rampage, banning candy canes because their J shape represents Jesus, the reason for the season. However, that was just the beginning.
What kinds of items, you ask? Liberty Counsel provided a memo from principal Jennifer Sinclair that spelled out in detail all the verboten paraphernalia at Manchester Elementary School in Omaha:
Santas or Christmas items (clip art) on worksheets Christmas trees in classrooms
Elf on the Shelf thats Christmas-related
Singing Christmas carols
Playing Christmas music
Sending a Scholastic book that is a Christmas book thats Christmas-related
Making a Christmas ornament as a gift This assumes that the family has a Christmas tree which assumes they celebrate Christmas. I challenge the thought of, Well they can just hang it somewhere else.
Candy Cane thats Christmas-related. Historically, the shape is a J for Jesus. The red is for the blood of Christ, and the white is a symbol of his resurrection. This would also include different colored candy canes.
Red/Green items traditional Christmas colors Reindeer
Christmas videos/movies and/or characters from Christmas movies
Sinclair whos in her first year as Manchesters principal noted in the memo that she come[s] from a place that Christmas and the like are not allowed in schools and that as a public school Manchester Elementary will be seek to be inclusive and culturally sensitive to all of our students.
I have unknowingly awoken a sleeping giant with many of you, she added. I apologize for the stress that Christmas/holiday/ Grinch/Santa/tree emails and conversations have caused you.
So what exactly is Sinclair allowing at the school? Prepare yourself. This is going to make your blood boil a bit:
Gifts to students
Students making a gift for a loved one
Snowmen, snow women, snow people, snowflakes Gingerbread people
Holidays Around the World purposeful presentation of information to teach about different cultures
Scarves, boots, earmuffs, and hats
No Santa. No Jesus. But yetis? Absolutely!
This woman might just be certifiably insane. Just throwing that out there before we continue down this long, painful journey into the rabbit hole of progressive thinking.
Liberty Counsel sent a demand letter to the superintendent of Elkhorn Public Schools about the Christmas ban, urging it to immediately overrule and specifically disavow the sweeping directive banning Christmas holiday items, and require Principal Sinclair to undertake review of District policy and the law.
Shockingly, the district responded to Liberty Counsel, saying they investigated the matter themselves and found Sinclairs policies to be in violation of Board Policy, information Manchester staffers that certain Christmas symbols were indeed permissible.
Sinclair is fairly young to be a principal and this indicates quite clearly that she is a product of an education system that has brainwashed her into being a good little statist robot.
They have convinced her that separation of church and state means no religious influence on government policy or on government property. Thats not true. It means no official church denomination for the United States. Nothing more.
This is why much of the battle were fighting for the culture needs to be done on college campuses, public schools, and in the entertainment industry. This is where the propaganda is being spread and how the ideas are getting planted in young folks head.
Heres to hoping more victories for religious liberty down the pike.
The irony of her statement is breathtaking...............
Spirit of antichrist at work.
IOW, the educational system shouldn't be involved in education. Thanks Red Badger.
$5 says she makes the students celebrate Ramadan and Kwanza
Koran tree ornaments are probably very expensive.
Tyranny of the minority, while lecturing us on tolerance.
Principal bans red, green and everything Christmas before Liberty Counsel steps in to put her in check
Pretzels constitute prayer in school....verboten!
Well ... just for her, we’ll say that the “J” is for “Jennifer”. Isn’t that special? And the red and white can be for the public university colors of the Nebraska Cornhuskers. There ... there... Jenny-kins ... feel better now?
“They have convinced her that separation of church and state means no religious influence on government policy or on government property.”
“Separation of Church and State” is not a term that appears in the constitution of the United States. It did appear in the constitution of the Soviet Union.
If anything this little statist monster’s overreach violates the First Amendment’s prohibition of the government making a law prohibiting the free practice of religion.
So what abysmal place did she come from - return to sender!
no principal Jennifer Sinclair
Jennifer starts with a “J” Ban her!!
[Separation of Church and State is not a term that appears in the Constitution of the United States.]
Correct. The little brainwashed Democrats don’t know that, of course.
I read that as:
Koran tree ornaments are probably very explosive.
I remember that story Im the Bible where people lie down candy canes for Jesus to walk on when he entered the city.
Wait no, sorry ... those were regular canes that they made the candy versions out of...
Wait no... those were PALMS
Candy CANES (so called because theyre hooked like CANES) you stupid git were made to be hung on evergreen trees - which arent related to Christianity either but shared with winter festivals in Germany.
Good Lord why is she still employed?! She obviously has no concept of history, let alone a proper education and shes leading our children? No. Hell no. If I had a child in that school Id be demanding her resignation daily for impersonating an educated person.
I’m pretty skeptical of this claim that a candy cane was/is intended as an upside down J for Jesus. Seems like one of those phony, retroactive ‘secret history of Christmas’ things that pop us every year. Not buying it.
And remember kids! Theres no war on Christmas!
IMHO, the separation should be: school and state.
The shape of the candy cane represents the shepherd’s crook of the bishop St. Nicholas of Myra, whose memorial is observed today, Dec. 6.
That said, if one accepts the government’s free babysitting, one accepts the government’s Christ-hating, barking moonbat bureaucrats. Happy ... uh, winter.
