Shots are being fired early in what some people call a “war on Christmas.”
Officials at the Bordentown Regional School district have announced a ban on religious Christmas music from their elementary school winter concerts.
The school explains their position in a statement on their website. It reads that some of the musical selections for the district’s elementary winter concerts have been questioned. Bordentown says they banned the songs because of a court ruling involving the South Orange-Maplewood district that prohibited the music. The Bordentown solicitor is reviewing the case.
Bordentown’s school district states they will be emphasizing diversity. “It remains the District’s mission to celebrate the rich and wonderful diversity of our children and community and hope that the joy shared through our numerous winter programs will continue to be cherished part of your family traditions,” said Schools Superintendent Constance Bauer, according to The Blaze.
