The War on CHRISTmas: Parents Livid as Long Island School Removes Words From Silent Night as Too Offensive
THE WAR ON CHRISTMAS CONTINUES WITH POLITICAL CORRECTNESS NONSENSE …
At Kings Point Intermediate School on Long Island, NY it was ok for the liberal school edumacators thought it was perfectly okay to offend Christians by sanitizing the Christmas song ‘Silent Night’ of all references to God so they did not offend others. Yup, because the birth of Jesus, the son of God is just of darn offensive. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! What kind of IDIOTS do we have running schools these days? Turns out they did offend many people, the parents that were wondering what song they were listening to their kids butcher.
There is anger at a Long Island school because they changed the words to the song “Silent Night.”
The district says it was to avoid offending people but it seems like it did the opposite.
Parents are so confused that 5th graders at RJO Intermediate School in Kings Park recently performed the song “Silent Night” with all religious words like Christ, God and Jesus taken out.
Dan Gallo, a parent of one of the students was completely offended by it.
“There is so many Christmas songs. Why would you change the lyrics to something that is very near and dear to so many people?” said Gallo.
Another parent, Tina Byrne, doesn’t have a problem with what the school did.
The school district says the school principal and the choral director decided to teach the students the altered version.
Watch the VIDEO below and try to figure out just what song these kids are singing.
Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
‘Round yon virgin , mother and child
Holy infant so, tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Silent night, Holy night
Shepherds quake, at the sight
Glory streams from heaven afar
Heavenly, hosts sings Hallelujah.
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born.
Silent night, Holy night
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord at thy birth,
Jesus, Lord at thy birth.
I sense a pendulum swing back the other direction of people are getting real sick and tired of this PC nonsense.
Much to the chagrin of the politically correct and those who wage a war on Christmas, the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ is considered the most important holiday for Americans. 67% of American adults consider Christmas one of the nation’s most important holidays. Actually, Joy to the World, the Lord has Come is rated the #1 holiday as most Americans consider Jesus the son of God .
O Holy Night- Josh Groban
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 67% of American Adults consider Christmas one of the nation’s most important holidays, showing little change from last year and consistent with surveys stretching back to December 2006. Only six percent (6%) see Christmas as one of the least important holidays, while 24% rate it somewhere in between.
Of the 88% of Americans who celebrate Christmas 81% celebrate it as a religious holiday. What a novel concept, celebrating Christmas as the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ and not in a secular manner. In a further backlash against the PC police, secularists, those who wage the war against Christmas and those who have no concept of separation of Church and State, 79% of Americans say that religious holidays should be celebrated in public schools. Also, 70% of Americans prefer ‘Merry Christmas’ over ‘Happy Holidays’ on store signs which can explain the reason why more stores are making the effort to do so.
The PC folks and those who wage a war on all religion are about to face a backlash and swing of the pendulum. More and more Americans are fed up with the secularists as 79% see “Political Correctness” as a serious problem in America. Honestly, if we continue along the insane PC ways, it will be the death of us.
SANTA: NO, NO, NO: The War on Christmas Continues … Massachusetts school system Bans Santa from Visiting Elementary Schools over Religious Concerns
The LEFT has escalated the war on Christmas to include Santa as well. If it were up to the LEFT, Santa would say, No, No, No.
Dateline Saugua, MASS … Massachusetts school system has banned Santa Claus from visiting elementary school children because of religious concerns. WHAT???!!! Since when is Santa religious? Schools and governments have previously banned Christ, Nativity scenes and the baby Jesus from all schools because of religious reasons, now SANTA?
Since 1960 firefighters in the town of Saugus dressed up like Santa Claus and visited every elementary school handing out coloring books. But on Monday, the school superintendent told firefighters that they would not be welcomed into the classrooms.
Watch out Rudolph and Frosty the Snowman, you are next on the LEFT’s hit list to be banned for religious concerns. After that, Heat Miser and the Burger Meister will be next. It has become rather obvious that the LEFT just wants ro ban Christmas altogether and any aspect of it. Deep down inside, even with secular representations of Christmas like Santa, the LEFT knows what the “reason for the season” represents, the birth of Jesus Christ. The LEFT will stop at nothing to rid Christmas and Christianity from our society.

Tis the Season … Santa Claus Dressed as Skeleton, Nailed to a Cross Removed from Public Christmas Display
Some things are beyond words. So a Nativity scene depicting the birth of Jesus Christ is offensive, but a skeleton dressed as Santa Claus nailed to a cross is not! Is this how low we have become in the US in our efforts to promote PC?
The War on Christmas continues as it is far game to offend Christianity. So only certain types of offensive free speech are allowed? Needless to say, an offended member of the community took down the offensive display.
The annual Leesburg dispute over holiday displays is getting as predictable as the rush of shoppers on Black Friday.
A skeleton, dressed as Santa Claus, nailed to a cross, was torn down by an enraged woman outside of the Loudoun County Courthouse.
The display was legally there, with the consent of the county, officials said.
Mary Czarnecki, a county resident, wasn’t having it. She, piece by piece and bone by bone, took “Skele-Claus” off the cross and laid him on the courthouse’s lawn.
“You don’t think this is offensive?”
The individual, Jeff Heflin, actually applied for approval with the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors to put up his anti-Christmas Season display. He stated that his Christmas display “depicts how society’s materialistic obsessions and addictions are killing the season’s peace, love, joy and kindness.” Really?
I wonder what Church Jeff Heflin belongs to?
Oh, but get this … open minded words from an Atheist. This hypoctit says that people should keep an open mind about the skeleton dressed Santa. Really? WHERE IS THE ATHEISTS OPEN MIND WHEN IT COMES TO NATIVITY SCENES? ISN’T THIS WHAT HAS CAUSED THE POLITICAL CORRECTNESS PROBLEM IN AMERICA … NON-BELIEVERS LACK OF AN OPEN MIND AND SUING CHRIST OUT OF CHRISTMAS!!!
The leader of the Northern Virginia Atheists, Rick Wingrove, says tearing down the display was illegal, and people should keep an open mind.
“Offense is in the eye of the beholder. We’re offended by the religious displays on government property. We think it’s constitutionally improper,” Wingrove said.
