Atheists Force School To Cut Live Nativity Scene From School Xmas Show
Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Christ, it’s in the name of the holiday season. Yet it appears some atheists were butt hurt that a school would want to celebrate the reason for the season by doing a live nativity during their Christmas show. So they demanded the school refrain from putting on the nativity scene.
“An Oklahoma public elementary school removed its third-grade live Nativity scene from its annual Christmas production after receiving a threatening letter from an atheist group.
Christopher Line, staff attorney at the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), wrote to F. Andrew Fugitt at the Center for Education Law that the school district was committing a “constitutional violation”:
A concerned Edmond Public Schools community member has reported that each year, third-grade teachers at Chisholm Elementary have students rehearse a live nativity scene, which students then perform at the school’s holiday concert in December. We understand that Chisholm students who participate in the nativity play various roles, including Mary and Joseph, etc.
While a public school can hold holiday concerts, religious performances and instruction that emphasize the religious aspects of a holiday are prohibited… A live nativity performance celebrating the story of Jesus’s birth is precisely the sort of religious endorsement prohibited by the Establishment Clause.”
“Liberty Counsel is offering pro bono defense if the school chooses to resume a live Nativity in the school Christmas program.
Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, “The so-called Freedom From Religion atheist group continually bullies and threatens people every Christmas, and that includes even children. This organization mocks Christianity and does not seem to know what the Constitution means. I hope this school district will not cave to their threats and continues to allow these children to celebrate Christ’s birth in their school production,” said Staver.”
So let’s hope the school stands up to these atheists that are attacking Christmas.
