A school in New York is apologizing for changes made to a Christmas classic during a holiday concert.

FOX News Radio's Dave Anthony reports:

(Singing) "Silent night..."

Proud parents beamed as their fifth graders sang in Kings Park, New York last week... Until some noticed something wasn't right with 'Silent Night'. Part of the song was silenced. "Christ the Savior is born" was gone. So was "Holy infant". All references to God, Jesus and Christ were removed in the Winter Recital:

(Parent) "I feel like if they are going to change the words, maybe just pick a different song."

(Parent) "It's offensive. If you're going to remove words to not offend other religions, what about the religion that that song belongs to, which is Christianity."

The school principal and superintendent both apologized, saying it's a mistake that won't be made again.
