Successfully Stopping Santa
What a bunch of killjoys the ACLU is!
The ACLU has successfully stopped Santa from visiting public schools in Baldwin, Kan., because his presence constitutes illegal proselytizing by the school, reports the Baldwin City Signal.
After receiving a letter of complaint from the American Civil Liberties Union, the school board there voted to put a stop to the nefarious activities and said it will re-examine how it treats all religious holidays in the schools.
The ACLU complained that in a visit to an elementary school last year, Santa gave out candy canes and asked the kids why Christmas is celebrated. The kids had the nerve to pop up and answer Jesus’ birthday.
Throw those kids in the slammer and teach them some tolerance!
