Long Island School Removes Words From Silent Night – Too Offensive (Video)
Christmas Holiday concert Kings Park school in Long Island cut several religious references from their music.
It was too offensive.
It’s an Obama world.
“Silent Night” is now too offensive to sing at school.
CBS Local reported:
The song “Silent Night” is at the heart of a concert controversy on Long Island.
Kings Park school officials removed several religious references, including “Holy infant” and “Christ the Savior,” from the popular Christmas carol before a student concert last week, WCBS 880′s Mike Xirinachs reported.
The intent was to avoid offending non-Christians, but the change left others upset.
“I’m not too happy with that, it’s kind of insulting,” parent Robert Dowd said.
“There’s been a lot of changes in the schools and I don’t agree with them,” one man said.
“It’s kind of embarrassing that they would do something like that,” another man said.
The school superintendent and principal of the Ralph J. Osgood Intermediate School have since apologized.
