New law bans 'Christmas' for Asturias kids

Schoolchildren in the northern Spanish region of Asturias will no longer be able to call Christmas by its name now that a new law passed by the local education ministry prohibits the use of “religious” terms in the classroom when referring to the December and spring holidays.

Teachers and pupils in Asturias classrooms will now have to refer to Christmas as “winter holidays” and Easter as “second term holidays”.

The region’s socialist-led government has decided to introduce the new terminology in a bid to restrict religious references in the next school year.

Local religious teachers and institutions like the Catholic Confederation of Fathers (CONCAPA) have shrugged off the new law, branding it as a “stupidity” but also an “attack”.

Christians need to understand that turning the other cheek simply means you will get slapped again.

The socialist government should be more concerned with the rapidly growing Islamic population which will displace the socialists with an Islamic government.

Although Christianity imposed itself on the earlier Pagan holidays (Mid-Winter and Spring), there's no point now changing the names, unless the secularization can prevent the Moslems using the excuse to impose special alternatives on the grounds of what's good for one religion is good for another.

So "second term holiday" will be a reference to christmas, which is a religious term, so now will "second term holiday" be banned because it is too "religious?"

If you change the word but it means the same thing, why is the old one "offensive" and the new one is not?

If you say Ni**er and I say sprigglesplat but it means Ni**er are not BOTH words "offensive?"

Changing a word does not change it's meaning it only changes the word. God a person could go crazy trying to explain this to moronic liberals.

None are so deaf as those who will not (refuse to) hear! And none so dumb as those who refuse to learn!
