School bans Christmas carols containing word "Jesus" amid fears they
may cause offence

https://www.irishpost.com/news/school-bans-christmas-carols-160757

A SCHOOL has come under fire after students were told they would not
be singing any carols that include the word "Jesus" this Christmas.

Pupils at Robious Middle School in THE us have been told they won't be
singing any songs representing Jesus due to the "sacred nature" of
Christ.

That's according to a series of emails written by the Virginia
school's chorus teacher to concerned parent David Allen, which was
subsequently passed on to NBC12.

"We had a few students who weren't comfortable singing a piece I have
done many times in the past, but it is of a sacred nature and does
mention Jesus," one of the emails explains.

After meeting with school administrators, the school opted against
singing any carols of a directly sacred nature in an attempt at being
more sensitive to the school's diverse population.





Question are people required to sing or attend these concerts?

Is a belief system being pushed here?

Well lets see, along with christ,as carols containing jesus... all
decorations related to christmas including but not limited to any
decorative lights, trees, ornamentation, wreaths, bows and ribbons
used as christmas decorations, anything that contains the image of
santa claus or angels or elves or trees or anything christmas related,
christmas cards, and gifts should be banned from schools, and all
other government owned land or buildings and vehicles should be
banned. No one likes to see a nazi symbol because of the Holocaust and
the bad shit that brings up.... well christmas is a symbol for twice
as much death , no to mention all the torture and rape that goes along
with it and that even includes the Holocaust....

"You're either with us or against us," it's like when politicians want
to promote a new war or a new regulation that stomps on individual
liberties.

While I don't want the religion taught in schools Christmas carols
have never been a problem. Wasn't there some schools in CA where you
couldn't wear the American Flag on your cloths because it might offend
a immigrant?

If atheist are such snowflakes that the song Silent Night offends then
that is just to bad. Not having the song offends people also. What
about Marry Christmas darling? Also seems Christianity is being
targeted because don't some schools have special rooms for Muslims to
pray? What they should do is have a school vote.

While I don't want the religion taught in schools Christmas carols
have never been a problem.
I can remember religious Christians bitching that secular songs
were being chosen for holiday pagents in the government schools
in or near New York City as early as the 1960s. Teacher-led prayer
and the reading of the bible aloud to the entire home room class
at the start of the day had been recently struck down by the courts.

NYC had, and has, a significant number of people who are other than
Christian, and the schools were trying to not exclude anybody.

Any reigion is supposed to be given "reasonable accomodation."
I can think of where this would be reasonable, and where it wouldn't be.

Hell, no. Voting by the students? Having the majority of students
voting away the rights of the minority? Or have the school board do
it, or have a referendum?

Constitutional rights are, by definition, not subject to a voter.

I'd suggest voluntary student organizations, with non-tax
funding, organizing the concerts. I think that might pass
constitutional muster. Each group might want their own, if
they didn't cooperate: the Christian group, the Jewish group,
the Pastafarians, etc.

Atheism is not taught nor is any religion.

I don't think atheism can be promoted as that would be a violation. Schools aren't supposed to promote any kind of belief system.

What's needed are courses in logic and how to make decisions based on evidence. Religion would die even sooner.

That isn't neutral that is beyond that point to promoting only atheist
thought in schools. I am totally against teaching religion in schools
but people have sang these songs for centuries.

The kids should vote on it because leaving them out might be offensive
to some.

They can still do this on private grounds and church grounds,
but no religion should be taught in schools. Religious education
begins at home.

Pull the kids out of public schools and send them to private
schools or home school. I'm for cutting the funds to public education
and restructuring the curriculum to exclude Islamic and homosexual
education programs.

This way the parents can get more control over what is being
taught to their kids.

You consider singing Christmas some or hearing them to be promoting
religion? Well I can see the next step banning Christmas music on the
radio in store and soon from the Internet. All in the name of being
politically correct.

I'm all for there being no prayer in schools and no teaching of
religion other than a basic review. I'd also like the Pledge of
allegiance returned to it's ordinal words.

Right before the next election this should be made a issue and see
what happens. I just don't consider sing those songs to be promoting
a religion as I've gone to the concerts before and really did come
away thinking about Jesus. More Santa and good spirits. Then you go
to the Mall the next day and see the true meaning of Christmas greed
and being assholes.

I already see it at Christmas Concerts.
It seems they don't want to offend people so they don't play the songs
that mention Jesus, God, or anything similar. I don't like to go to
the USAF Band Christmas Concerts anymore.

This troll doesn't know there is NO text in the D of I that requires
adherence to the Abrahamic decalogue. Nor does the US Constitution
mandate atheism, state or otherwise. It only precludes state support for
one sect over others, or for religion over irreligion. It likewise
forbids promoting atheism over religion. It is about neutrality.

Here's the story from the Virginia TV station.

Is tax money being used to heat the auditorium, pay the choir
master/mistress, etc? The entire community, including those who
do not consider the mythical birthday of the mythical Josh of
importance to their own religion, or lack thereof, has to pay for
these pageants, unless they operate on donations.

Student-initiated expressions of faith are allowed in govt schools,
as in the "meet at the flagpole" prayer movement. Teacher-led
and organized prayer was struck down in the early 1960s. An Irish
paper might not realize the niceties of US constitutional law.
Irish schools, including state schools, are largely denominational,
with ones run by churches getting state funding.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denominational_education_in_the_Republic_of_Ireland

I was a member of my parish's choir, sang in church on
Sundays, and the group was invited to sing carols on
several occasions at local venues outside of church,
including the local parochial school I attended, and at
local stores during the Christmas holiday season. Many
of the carols we sang were religious. This was completely
appropriate for a religious parish school. It would not
be for a state-funded educational institution.

Hey moron.. Mr top poster... are you a whiney little bitch??? First
off it would not be against the constitution and second there is no
god, third humans invented the ten commandments not a magical fairy.
Fourth the declaration of independence declares no such thing. Fifth
you really should seek some form of education to really help you out
with that total moron problem that you seem to have. And lastly it
sounds like you and hitler would have made great bedfellows.

School bans Christmas carols containing word "Jesus" amid fears they
may cause offence
https://www.irishpost.com/news/school-bans-christmas-carols-160757
A SCHOOL has come under fire after students were told they would not
be singing any carols that include the word "Jesus" this Christmas.
Pupils at Robious Middle School in THE us have been told they won't be
singing any songs representing Jesus due to the "sacred nature" of
Christ.
That's according to a series of emails written by the Virginia
school's chorus teacher to concerned parent David Allen, which was
subsequently passed on to NBC12.
"We had a few students who weren't comfortable singing a piece I have
done many times in the past, but it is of a sacred nature and does
mention Jesus," one of the emails explains.
After meeting with school administrators, the school opted against
singing any carols of a directly sacred nature in an attempt at being
more sensitive to the school's diverse population.
Question are people required to sing or attend these concerts?
Is a belief system being pushed here?
