Keep Christ Out of Christmas, Buddy!

From WorldNetDaily:

A public school teacher in Mississippi marked down an eleven-year-old's Christmas poem assignment and told the boy to rewrite it because he used the word "Jesus," which, the instructor explained, is a name not allowed in school.

Liberty Counsel, a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, reports that sixth-grader Andrew White of Hattiesburg, Miss., chose to write the poem on the assignment "What Christmas means to me."

After White turned in his rough draft, however, his teacher circled the word "Jesus" and deducted a point from his grade. The teacher then explained that he needed to rewrite the poem without the offending word.

When White's parents questioned the teacher, Liberty Counsel reports, they received a response email explaining, "[Andrew] and another child did a poem about Christ. I know we can't discuss these type [sic] of things in school so I asked the two of them to do another poem of their choice."

And people like this are "educating" America's children in public schools across the country...

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." --First Amendment to the Constitution

Liberals always neglect to apply the same rigor to the "free exercise" clause as they do the "establishment" clause. Public school (i.e.,federal school) teachers and administrators should be instructed on the Constitution and face termination for the violation of same.

Most people think this is ridiculous, including many liberals. The partisanship was unnecessary, but it was a cute attempt.

Perhaps you are right, Amie. I'm sure you can name for us a liberal organization or two that have taken up the cause of free exercise of religion? The ACLU, perhaps?

I have been called "cute" or "adorable" several times in the past couple of months by liberal commenters. Apparently this is a not-very-clever attempt to be partonizing and dismissive when you have lost the argument. Nice try.
