US School bans Christmas

Students at Robious Middle School in Chesterfield County, Virginia have been told they won’t be singing any songs representing Jesus due to the “sacred nature” of Christ.

“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,” the school’s chorus teacher tells a concerned parent in an email.

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.

 The plans haven’t been well received by some, though. One parent, David Allen, argues that the plans go against the very idea the school is trying to promote.

“I’m trying to rationalise how you can encourage diversity and yet be exclusionary in one specific area,” Allen said to NBC12.

He also states that he’s “very concerned about what’s going on, and about all of the changes happening these days”.

The school has yet to issue a statement responding to the claims and criticism put forward by Allen and whether the school will be adjusting their plans as a result.
