Friday Quickies (stolen and borrowed)

KJ has a some light hearted lines worth the trip to visit his site.

Nickie Goomba has the latest spoof filed by the ACLU

I got this last one from Donald E. Wildmon, Founder and Chairman of American Family Association. It came in my email and seems to be worth reading. Unfortunately, this one is not a joke.

A Christmas Witch in Wisconsin Public School

Wisconsin Elementary School Changes "Silent Night" to "Cold in the Night" While Decorating For A Christmas Witch!

In Dodgeville, Wisconsin, Ridgeway Elementary School's "winter program" has changed the name of "Silent Night" to "Cold in the Night." Sung to the tune of "Silent Night," the lyrics include:
"Cold in the night, no one in sight, winter winds whirl and bite, how I wish I were happy and warm, safe with my family out of the storm." The "winter program" included decorating classrooms with Santa Claus, Kwanza symbols, Menorahs, and Labafana--a Christmas witch! Also in Wisconsin, the Glendale-River Hills School District has banned every Christmas song which has any Christian "motive or theme." But while banning Christian Christmas songs, the district permits secular holiday songs as well as songs celebrating Hanukkah. In defending this policy, Frances Smith, the district administrator, says that the Hanukkah songs are more cultural than spiritual.

What these schools are doing to our children is not educating, but indoctrinating! And they are using Christmas as an excuse. Following the lead of the National Educational Association, Wisconsin educational leaders preach tolerance and diversity while being highly intolerant! Most of the residents of Wisconsin are tolerant, but not their educational leaders.”

Merry Christmas to everyone! For those reading this who might be less tolerant and would prefer something like, “Season’s Greetings” or “Happy Holiday’s”, to you I send out a special, “Very Merry Christmas!!”

Additional Information Added
December 17th

I give a tip of the hat to John Foust for sending me information which clears up something regarding the words being altered in Silent Night. It appears that it had nothing to do with the “war on Christmas” as I had been led to believe; instead, it was part of a special Christmas program that has been put on in several churches. Please follow the link which John included in his email.
