Why New Jersey Should Not Be It’s Own State – Reason #1

To be fair, if we are picking on the “Palestinians” for their attitudes about Christmas, we need to pick on these guys:

The district had decreed that performances would be limited to selections such as “Winter Wonderland” and “Frosty the Snowman,” with a complete ban on tuns about Jesus and even Santa Claus.

The high school’s brass ensemble had to rebuild its repertoire, the Martin Luther King Gospel Choir was ordered not to perform and “printed programs” were edited to remove any “graphics which refer to the holidays, such as Christmas trees.”

Just a year before the policy was imposed, the school district’s holiday concert had featured “Joy to the World,” “O Come All Ye Faithful,” and “Silent Night.’

The policy to cleanse the religious holiday of religious music was imposed after a closed-session meeting.

A closed-session meeting?  So much for transparency in government.
