Traditional Christmas Nativity Play Canceled in Favor of Muslim Festival
When faced with a choice between honoring Christmas or some Muslim festival, British educrats probably didn’t agonize long over their decision.
Greenwood Junior School sent out a letter to parents saying the three-day festival of Eid al-Adha, which takes place between December 8 and 11, meant that Muslim children would be off school.
That meant planning for the traditional nativity play were shelved because the school felt it would be too difficult to run both celebrations side by side.
The justification was typical; educrats proclaimed themselves duty-bound to respect “the cultures and religions of all the children.” Except of course British and Christian children.
