This Year’s Christmas Controversy

Every year there has to be some kind of controversy, is it okay to say, ‘Merry Christmas,’ or is ‘Happy holidays’ the better politically correct seasonal greeting.

This year is no different, St. Michael Society sent me this article about an 8-year old special needs boy who was suspended from his public elementary school for drawing a stick figure of Jesus on the cross. Before he was allowed to rejoin his class, his father (a substitute janitor) had to pay out of his own pocket for a psychological evaluation exam.

Obviously the teacher should have talked to the student first, and then the principal should have talked to the student and the parents. And isn’t the school counselor not equipped to talk to the child???

  1. Wow. That is one of the most overdramatic responses to anything I have seen in a long time. An 8-year-old with special needs drew a picture of Jesus and got suspended? Dang.
