In What Way Is This ‘Celebrating Christmas’…?

A spokesman for the school said: ‘We are a community school serving children from a range of faith backgrounds.

‘In the past, not all were able to come together to celebrate Christmas, so we have worked hard with our local church to ensure the celebrations this year are accessible to all our children to participate in, together, as one.’

By removing what makes it Christmas.

A spokesman for the Diocese of Chelmsford, which includes St Peter and St Paul Church, said: ‘The service maintains the traditional Christian message of the joy of Christmas in a way that can be celebrated by everyone, including those of other faiths and none.’

You will never see a celebration of Ramadan that removes all reference to the Prophet Mohammed, will you?

    Well it was originally all about the Winter Solstice. If they went back to that it would be nice and inclusive. I went to two different CofE primary schools in the 1960s and I don’t recall religion intruding much into Christmas anyway back then. Only recently has the CofE realised that indoctrinating primary school kids is their only way of avoiding oblivion in the near future. So now it has become really important to make it all about Jesus and have nativity plays and stuff.

    Other Faiths don’t celebrate Christmas, the bullshit given out is hypocrisy, humbug and politically Correct grovelling, celebrating Christmas without the birth of Christ is not Christianity, just pure paganism.

      Christmas is a rebranding of the Pagan midwinter festival that predates Christianity by thousands of years. It always was pure paganism.
