The most ridiculous part is the reason they asked him to leave. They told him it was a holiday dance not a christmas dance. This shit is starting to piss me off. Im not too religious and my beliefs would get me shunned by most churches, but I think there is a difference between spreading the word of God and dressing like an imaginary fat man.

There is not a lot of difference between a fox hole and a grave; but knowing that you dug your ditch and climbed in anyway.

"It was a holiday party," said Muscara. "It was not a Christmas party. There is a separation of church and state. We have a lot of students that go to Hampton Academy Junior High that have different religions. We have to be sensitive to that."


What that principal did was a violation of the so-called "separation of church and state". If a student wishes to practice his religion in a way that is not disruptive of classes, it is not allowed for the school to interfere.

The first ammendment limits what the government can do, not what private citizens are allowed to do. The ACLU should take on some cases like this rather than always siding with athiest and anti-christians.

Seperation of church and state was totally different than it is being blown up to be today.

Back then it was about saying that the government couldn't tell you what to believe ... not this "don't display Jesus messages" horse SHIT.... or better yet "don't display Santa Clause because he is related to CHRISTmas"

<sarcasm>EY! If you want to celebrate Allah GO FOR IT! Just don't let Jesus come into play because Jesus is destroying our country... </sarcasm>

FUCK political correctness.

one nation under GOD. heh, go fuck yourself. this is complete bullshit because:

A) Christmas is not really about Christianity anymore, it's just another hallmark holiday.

B) Seperation between church and state never really happened ;\

C) Who get's offended over Santa Claus?


baby_hitler:

it's usually the school administrators who decide what is distracting and what isn't.

and wtf....if it's a holiday party then what's the point if people can't express religion? i'm pretty sure this kid had not even thought of jesus that day and just wanted to "look cool" with him and his friend who was dressed as an elf.

Santa Claus was created by the coca-cola company. The man we know today as Chris Kringle is about as related to Christianity as soda pop.

Santa Claus was not invented by Coca-Cola. They only invented the image of Santa Claus that most Americans are familiar with; the fat guy in a red and white suit.

Man fuckin Santa-christmas is totally different than Jesus-christmas. they're just on the same day. Sure, they're 'related', but damn. The whole santa thing, with presents and shit.. it's fun, celebrate it, adopt a damned holiday. no one bitches in this country because people celebrate the 4th of july, it's not hard to celebrate christmas without bringing jesus into the mix.

Well obviously the idea of Santa Claus was not invented by the coca-cola company, notice the subject of the second sentence. However pre coca-cola Santa was more a mixture of the religious characters of St. Nicholas (an elf), Pelznickel, and Christkindlein. Coca-Cola standardized Santa as a man of the holiday spirit rather than one who embodies the day marked as the birth of christ. That was my point sorry for the confusion.

Who came up with the sack and the presents?


I think there was a lapland shaman that delivered presents and came down the yurt pole.

Or maybe he came down the yurt pole and smacked you around. I can't remember.
