School Admin Orders Christmas Cards Removed

I have been having trouble with the computer all evening, so this will be very brief.

Gates of Vienna is also experiencing problems, but the readership here is not remotely close to theirs. If they have been hacked, I have to assume that the problems here are only coincidental.

The children who currently attend public schools in the United States are - unless the People move for major changes, the last ones who will be able to have any celebration or marking of Christmas (or Thanksgiving, etc.) in school. One attack after another by sick-minded and depraved radical atheist (or atheist group) after another has found weak targets among school administrators.


"A Georgia elementary school is at the center of controversy after administrators reportedly asked teachers to move a group of hallway Christmas cards out of the view of students.

According to Fox News, teachers at Brooklet Elementary School have displayed Christmas cards in the hallways outside their classrooms “for as long as anyone can remember.”

But, the cards reportedly disappeared after Thanksgiving break when administrators asked teachers to relocate them behind an office door so only employees can see them.

“They took down the cards so the kids can’t see them,” Robb Kicklighter, the husband of a teacher at the school, told Fox News. “Some of the cards had the word ‘Christmas’ and some had Nativity scenes.”

“It’s really sad because the students looked forward to seeing those homemade Christmas cards every year,” he continued. “It’s stirred a lot conversation. This has been a tradition and the kids are wondering what happened to the cards.”

“It’s really sad…students looked forward to seeing those homemade Christmas cards every year.”

The move comes after Americans United for Separation of Church and State reportedly filed a complaint with the district’s board of education asking teachers to curtail religious expression while teaching.

Teachers have now been reminded by the school district to refrain from using school resources to advance their personal faiths. For instance, teachers were reminded they are not permitted to include bible versus in their email signature lines........."

Until this point, we have done nothing but put out fires while the conflagration roars all around us. Concerned citizens have found ways around similar bans by using private funding for nativity displays and scheduling observances after business or school hours. 

These have been noble efforts, but they do not confront the real problem. Our culture is being gutted by Leftists and their radical atheist, radical gay, radical environmentalist, and other allies that have as their goals the utter transformation of the nation uniquely blessed by God into a barren wasteland of a culture-less public life.

I have stated on numerous occasions that we have already let this go too far. If we want our children and grandchildren to have any nice memories of growing up in America, let alone any appreciation of the significant cultural aspects of our faith, we need to begin the movement to effect a political break with the other side. It is the latter who is winning in the courts and with public officials who are too fearful to take a stand. 

If I see a region or state in which such a movement is occurring, I will sell my property for whatever price I can get on the current market and move there - I'll look for work once I get there. That is one key factor in the Western outlook; being willing to start over in another location with like-minded People despite the short-term prospects. The Westerner moves for his grandchildren and many  more generations down the line. That is how the Eastern seaboard, the regions West of Appalachia, Texas, and the rest of the nation were built - not by individuals who wanted the easy life for themselves, but  the satisfaction that they were creating something for the descendants.
