Skip to comments.School Bans Christmas Carols that Mention Jesus [semi-satire]
Posted on 12/02/2018 9:24:57 AM PST by John Semmens
The Robious Middle School in Midlothian, Virginia announced that any Christmas song that mentions Jesus will be prohibited from being sung or played during the holiday season. Principal Dr. Derek Wasnock explained that since non-Christians might be offended by hearing Jesus name, the only way for us to be inclusive of all religions during the holiday season is to exclude any music that includes the words Jesus, Christ, savior, lord, or anything that we might have overlooked, but coulod be construed as offensive to non-christians.
The move was applauded by the schools nine-member Students for a Muslim America Association. The schools much larger contingent of Catholic and protestant students were puzzled and disappointed. One of them speaking off-the-record, lest he be sanctioned by school authorities, observed that I suppose it isnt enough that everyone has to endure Muslim sensitivity training, but it seems absurd that a holiday celebrating Jesus birth has to censor any mention of His name.
Wasnock vowed we will find out who criticized our inclusive exclusion and suspend or expel him or herwhichever seems most appropriate given his or her previous violations of school policies.

Since we, right now, are plagued with the deaths and dismemberships of so many Christians by Islam, shoulded Mohammed’s name be stricken also?
How can you not sing songs to the person who’s making the Season possible? Next time send that person a non-birthday card on their birthday. “Please Ignore This Birthday Card Since We Can’t Celebrate Your Birthday”
