There’s a new battleground in the war on Christmas – the suburbs of our nation’s capital. The school board in Montgomery County, Maryland has decided to appease Muslims families by making the school calendar — religious neutral.
That’s bad news for all you Jews and Gentiles out there.
As of next year – all Christian and Jewish holidays will be removed from the calendar. That means no more Christmas, no more Easter and no more Yom Kippur.
There’s no word on whether the board will remove the Irish from St. Patrick’s Day or the love from St. Valentine’s Day or the trees from Arbor Day.
For years local Muslims had been urging the district to close schools for two of their holidays. Many gathered outside the school board offices holding signs like “Support Equality for Eid” and “Because…our children matter too.”
Instead, the school board opted to eliminate all religious holidays.
Board members whacked the Jesus holidays because they did not want to disrespect or be insensitive to the Muslim community.
“This seems the most equitable option,” board member Rebecca Smondrowski told the Washington Post.
If you’ve read my new book, “God Less America” – you know how well appeasement works.
The school district says kids will still be able to celebrate the holiday formerly known as Christmas and the holiday formerly known as Easter. Now — they’ll be called winter break and spring break.
Ho Ho Ho, America.
