Virginia School Bans Songs That Mention ‘Jesus’ From Christmas Concert

A middle school in Virginia has come under fire for an overly-politically correct decision regarding their annual holiday choir concert.

Robious Middle School in Chesterfield notified parents that the upcoming event would do away with Christmas songs containing the word ‘Jesus’ as a means to promote diversity.

A letter explained that the decision was made as part of an effort to be “more sensitive” toward an increasingly “diverse population” within the school’s student body.

An e-mail exchange between one parent and the choir teacher reveals that the decision was made due to complaints by a few easily triggered individuals.

“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 teacher wrote.

Say, Robious administrators, any idea whose birthday is celebrated on Christmas? We’ll give you three guesses and the first two don’t count.

A CHRISTmas song … has CHRIST mentioned in it? Whodathunk?

Seems the middle school eliminated any mention of Christmas as well by labeling the event a ‘Winter’ concert.

In short, a winter concert will feature generic winter songs just prior to a school break right around the 25th of December … and we’re all just going to pretend we don’t know why we’re celebrating?!

“I’m trying to rationalize how you can encourage diversity and yet be exclusionary in one specific area,” one parent said while discussing the decision.

Inclusion for me, but not for thee, Christians.

We’d like to point out that The Political Insider predicted this very thing happening in a Columbus Day weekend post about “10 All-American Things Liberals Love to Hate.”

Number 10 on that list was ‘God’:

“Liberals oppose the recognition of God in public spaces ad nauseam. It will crop up again come Christmastime when songs are banned from schools.”

Liberal media personalities will, of course, continue to pretend there is no ‘war on Christmas’ being conducted in our school systems, or in our nation.

Stories like the Robious Middle School are all too common, however. Anyone remember the annual stories about nativity scenes being banned from city squares, or schools opposing a Charlie Brown Christmas for having a biblical reference?

President Trump campaigned on winning the ‘war on Christmas’ in the months leading up to his election.

“We’re going to start saying Merry Christmas again,” he often told supporters.

Robious Middle School apparently didn’t get that message.
