Another Attack on Christmas by the ACLU

The American Center for Law and Justice is at the moment drawing attention to a lawsuit from the ACLU which they are helping to defend:

"We represent several school officials and teachers who have been charged with engaging in what the ACLU calls "illegal acts." The ACLU claims that the plaintiffs have been harmed, injured and "suffered irreparable damage" through the Christmas program because of its "Christian themes and songs." The ACLU will then ask for these actions be declared "unconstitutional and illegal."

It gets even worse. The plaintiffs and the ACLU allege that several kindergarten students role-played a nativity scene of the birth of Jesus-and had the audacity to sing "Away in the Manger" and "Joy to the World."


It would be a strange day if Christmas celebrations were found to be unconstitutional in the USA. The people under ACLU attack are from the Wilson County School System outside of Nashville, TN.

It would be perfectly reasonable if the ACLU were asking for non-Christian children to be allowed to opt out from the celebrations but in their usual simple-minded way the ACLU claim that it is only by stopping EVERYBODY from celebrating Chistmas that non-Christians can have their views respected.

STACLU has also recently commented on the matter.
