VA hospital: we honor all religions, so we’re banning Christmas Carols

Eeek, a whiff of God!

Eeek, a whiff of God!

High school choir prohibited from singing Christmas carols for VA patients.

A group of high school students from Augusta’s Alleluia Community School were prevented from singing traditional holiday songs that honor and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ to veterans by the medical center last week.

The school principal, Dan Funsch, told the newspaper that he was disappointed that the Veterans Affairs hospital’s “spiritual care” grants holiday exemption only to secular characters that make up the 12 Days of Christmas.

“This is not a religious proselytizing, evangelistic issue,” Funsch explained, arguing that Christmas songs are broadcast during the holidays on area radio stations and in local retail outlets. “The song Joy to the World is as much a part of the holiday spirit as the Christmas tree.”

The principal noted that the peculiar part of the policy is its recent enforcement.

The hospital spokesman could not provide an accurate date of when the ban began, but Funsch stated his students were welcomed with open arms in 2011 and 2012.

“We regret any inconvenience or misunderstanding that this (policy) creates,” Rothwell said. “VA policy is welcoming but respectful of all faiths and the protection of each veteran’s right to religious freedom and protection from unwelcomed religious material, to their individual beliefs.”

You will recall that it was this same Veterans Administration that refused to report the increasing violent threats by Dr. Nidal Hassan, the Ft. Hood shooter, out of worry it would offend his religious sensibilities. Similarly, Obama’s Justice Department declined requests from survivors and family members of the slain to categorize the Fort Hood shooting as act of terrorism, or motivated by militant Islamic religious convictions

What a country.

    Dude –
    It is imperative that we build a society where no one’s feelings ever get hurt. So all forms of song must be banned. Same for the theater. Adventures of Tom Sawyer? BAN IT!! IT USED THE N WORD!!

    And Art. Picasso pisses me off. He made millions drawing stick figures? Give me a frigging break. BAN THAT SHIT!! I WANT IT STOPPED!!

    And comedy. Especially yours. We need to be a politically correct society which the libtards so aspire to. Where we are all the same, but different, because we need diversity. Even though we are all the same. SO LET’S BAN EVERYTHING!! Legislate it or tax it out of frigging existence!!

    Who doesn’t think that is a great way to build a society? Except for dead baby jokes? Who doesn’t like those? Did someone say dead baby?

    How many dead babies does it take to paint a house? It depends on how hard you throw them!!

    Your Pal,
    Walt

    It’s important here to note that the Obama Family did not attend any church services on Christmas Day. That sets a national tone to deaf ears, and big ears at that, about Christmas’s true meaning.
