School cancels Christmas nativity in favour of Muslim Eid celebration.
It seems the school first canceled the annual Christmas play because they couldn't schedule two plays in the course of about 3 weeks. Apparently the Muslim Eid celebration is more important then Christmas play. What's wrong with this picture? After great outcry from the Christian parents, the canceled annual Christmas play was postponed. UNTIL AFTER NEW YEARS!!! What kind of idiots run this British School! Read the complete article here.

Away in a manger? Reynoldsburg shelves Nativity scene
And finally, right here in my own back yard the the burg, Reynoldsburg, Ohio lacks the (expletive deleted) to display a Nativity Scene, "because we don't own one, according to a city hall spokesperson. Well, ol, gee, spend a couple of tax payers $'s and BUY ONE!!! What a shame. Of course the burg is just following suit as the Nativity scene has not been on the Ohio Capitol State House lawn for many a year. For the complete story clik here.
God. It's on our money, It's over our Supreme Court, It's in the halls of Congress, It's in our Constitution. It's in our Pledge of Allegiance. Now I am just a good ol' boy from the mid-west with a touch of "hillbilly" thrown in but even I learned in my public school that God was a big part in the Founding Fathers lives. Therefore It is was placed first and foremost in all our valuable and respected documents. It is the very backbone of why we came here. We came to have the liberty and freedom to worship God. God to the Founding Fathers was of the utmost importance when writing The Bill of Rights and the Constitution. To them and the colonials they represented worshipping God was of utmost importance. A Right and a Privilege.
NOWHERE, was I taught anything superseded God. Especially around Christmas time. No Allah, No, Baal, No Great Spirit, No Buddha, and certainly no cardboard sign written by some nickel/dime atheist if, who's brains were black powder wouldn't have enough power to blow his nose. I would go as far as to ask, is atheism a religion? Let me see,
a set of beliefs,
Now I ask you what beliefs does an atheist have? None. Singular my friend, think singular. In order to be a religion you believe in many things. (For the complete definition from Dictionary.Com clik here.) I know this will most likely offend some people but, as Rhett Butler once said, "frankly my dear, I don't give a damn", and I don't. If you want to worship Baal, Allah, Buddha, or some other type of religion please feel free to do so, IN THE COUNTY YOU CAME FROM or, the sanctity of your own home! This is the United States of America and we take in all kinds of people, but we believe in God! When in Rome....... get the picture.
For the weak kneed politicians who buckle at the slightest thought of loosing a vote because they don't want to offend somebody go over to the blog Worth My Salt and pick up some background material. Then ask yourself, am I Worth My Salt? If you answer "no" get a grip and put up a Nativity Scene. See how many more votes you will get.
The display of the Nativity Scene anywhere including government property is the symbol God sent us his only son to die for us and take away our sins forever. Not displaying a Nativity Scene at this time of the year is a sacrilege. This belief is the very essence of our county and being.
God Bless The United States of America
