Toronto Schools Snub Christmas

Christmas seems to be taking a back seat in Canadian schools where Jewish and Muslim prayer and worship services are accommodated.

I can't believe they're trying this again!!!! This happened when I was at school and it took representatives from the other religions to make them see sense and restore Christmas. Their argument was that just as the Jewish, Muslims etc. have their religious festivals which were respected and recognised by other faiths, they themselves recognised and respected that Christians have theirs as well and that they were in no way offended by Christmas or Easter or whatever!!!!

Seriously, it's a shame common sense was clubbed to death by political correctness.........

crazy for sure. If we are expected to respect the beliefs of others, then it only makes sense that they should respect ours as well.
