Spokane Public Schools Erase Christmas
A December newsletter sent to elementary school students' families by Spokane Public Schools lists all the "important dates" to be acknowledged this month. They include:
- Human Rights Day
- Winter break
- Eid al-Adha (a Muslim holy day)
- First day of winter
Let me see, what did they forget?
After parents blew a gasket, the school district broke down and added Christmas to the online version of the newsletter. If another "honest, unfortunate mistake" results in it being left off again next year, parents will need to raise another uproar, or the most important holiday of the year will be quietly erased.
On a tip from Scott.

There are too many kittens in the animal shelters.
You know the reason.

May God, whom they wish to forget the carnate birth of, forgive them.

Do you honestly think it is possible for anyone in the Western world to forget what day Christmas is? If you don't see it in actually printed there, will it be forgotten? Is that your fear?
You should feel honored (i guess) that Christmas literally "goes without saying".

On a related note, The LA Times insults the literacy of people who object to the Atheist Propaganda Piece Film "The Golden Compass. The reporter, Laura Miller, claims that Christians are stupid for objecting to the atheistic subtext of the film, because it's just a movie.
But, read down in the comments. One commenter checked out what this same reporter said about "The Chronicles of Narnia." Seems back then, the Christian subtext of that film was quite troubling and disturbing to her.

So if they fail to recognize Christmas, are the moonbat educrats going to be working on that day? I'm thinking "No".
