Santa Is Just Too Darned Religious

You just cannot make this stuff up! (From CNS News)

A Christmas-themed event to raise money at a public elementary school in Warwick, N.Y., has been altered to accommodate a parent's complaints that the program would illegally spotlight a "religious" figure – Santa Claus.

"Breakfast With Santa" has since been changed to "Winter Wonderland Breakfast," and — in an effort to be inclusive of all beliefs — the bearded one will now be joined at the Dec. 9 event by Frosty the Snowman.

Unbelievable, eh? Yet, there is no "War on Christmas," or so the libtards say.

Why is this happening, you ask?

Organizers made the changes after one parent charged that she and others in the community were offended that the Parent Teacher Association at the Sanfordville Elementary School was sponsoring a program geared toward one religion.

That parent, who did not wish to have her name used, wrote a letter to the school board asserting that Santa represents Christmas — a Christian holiday — and by law, a public school is not allowed to promote religion.

There you go. One parent complained. And, guess what? The breakfast is going to be held on a Saturday, which means that it is not mandatory, but completely optional!

"The underlying principle here is that the First Amendment does not guarantee any of us a right not to be offended," Mike Johnson, legal councel for the Alliance Defense Fund said. "These radical leftist types are arguing that just because 95 percent of Americans, according to recent polling, celebrate Christmas, they ought not to have that right" since a person with a different view might object.

The 1st Amendment also states "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…" I fail to find anything in the written words of the Constitution that state that people cannot celebrate any religion on government property (which is owned by The People, of course.) If there is a federal law, as the parent suggests, then said law would be un-Constitutional.

    Point out to all of the students what is going on and point out the child that belongs to the trouble making fhead. See how she likes what the other kids do to her fhead kid. Just shunning/ignoring him/her would ruin him/her for life.

    the war against the war against Christmass starts earlier each year. By the way the parents of that child were Jewish, and of course in the last election 87% of their vote went to the Democrats.

    Land owned by “The People?” You are SO 20th century. Land is owned by the government, silly, and NOT “The People.” “The People” only exist to support and pay for government.
