The air is crisp and kids are preparing their Christmas lists. That can only mean one thing: it's time for schools and other government offices to start hyperventillating over the fact that Christmas is a national holiday.
While I am sure we will get many great examples of government's (aka liberals) hatred of Christians this year let us revisit a conversation from Christmas past...
Board Discussion Regarding Christmas/Winter Break.
Ike Maness, Hillsboro Education Association President, asked the Board in April to reconsider the practice of naming the two week break in December and January Christmas Break. He believed it was exclusionary and insulting to non-Christian students.
Director Kathy Huntington also was disappointed that Ike Maness was not at the meeting
because she wanted to address his comment that if the practice of naming the break Christmas Break offends even one student, it should be changed.
Director John Peterson said the issue had absolutely nothing to do with religion to him. He
believes we have an American culture that has given names to seasons and to holidays, and was not interested in being “politically correct.”
Imagine the standard of "if it offends even one person" being applied to everything we do.
