Last week, a school choir at Ralph J. Osgood Intermediate School in Long Island, New York sang "Silent Night" by omitting several references to Jesus.
The Board of Education of the Kings Park Central School District -- which was not asked for permission to omit Jesus' name -- has apologized to community members after several parents complained about the missing words at the fifth grade concert.
One parent described the omission of Jesus by saying, "What was performed was inappropriate and disrespectful to the Christian faith."
We agree with this parent. In fact, we will take this situation to the next level by saying that the music teacher and the principal of this school must be fired by the New York Board of Education for insulting Jesus -- the music teacher for encouraging such an omission and the principal for allowing it to occur.
Indeed, we find it incredible that the music teacher and principal at this school could be so anti-Christian as to even think of omitting Jesus' name in "Silent Night."
Consequently, it is our sincere belief that the music teacher and principal of this school must be terminated by the New York Board of Education for allowing such an insulting, hateful, and anti-Christian phenomenon towards the Lord to occur.
