Virginia school bans Christmas carols mentioning Jesus to be “more sensitive to diverse population at the school”

“School administrators reportedly explained they had made the decision to ‘avoid singing anything of a direct sacred nature’ in order to be ‘more sensitive to the increasing diverse population at the school.’”

Hmm. Who could they have in mind who might be offended by the mention of Jesus at Christmas? Jews have been in the U.S. from the beginning, and never had any problem. And this is Virginia, where there is a large and rapidly expanding Muslim population. Clearly this decision was made to avoid offending Muslims. How wonderful, generous and multicultural! Now: where is the Islamic school in Saudi Arabia, Iran, or Pakistan that is avoiding mention of Muhammad to keep from offending Christians?

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
