Brooklet Elementary School Confiscates Christmas Cards
 
Students at a Georgia elementary school returned from Thanksgiving break to empty halls where their teachers’ Christmas cards once hung. The cards were removed as part of the school administration’s crackdown on religious items.
 
“They took down the cards so the kids can’t see them,” Robb Kicklighter, whose wife is a third grade teacher at Brooklet Elementary School, said. “Some of the cards had the word ‘Christmas’ and some had Nativity scenes.”
 
The cards have been put behind an office door so only teachers could access them, a move that has upset many.
 
“It’s really sad because the students look forward to seeing those homemade Christmas cards every year,” he said. “It’s stirred a lot conversation. This has been a tradition and the kids are wondering what happened to the cards.”

The Americans United for Separation of Church and State have filed a complaint with the Bullock Board of Education, according to the Bullock County Citizens for Religious Liberties Facebook page.
Now, items such as Bibles and Christian music have also been banned at the school.
 
“It’s an attack on Christianity,” Kicklighter said. “It seems like every time we turn around, someone is offended.”
 
Hundreds have joined the Bulloch County Citizens for Religious Liberties Facebook page to protest the censorship, with many planning to attend a school board meeting on Thursday to voice out their opinions.
 
“Teachers, faculty, and students have the right to reasonable private expression and should not have that right taken away because of a complaint made by an outside entity like the AUSCS,” Jonathan Cook of the Facebook group wrote.
 
However, the Bulloch County School District issued a statement saying that “Christmas is alive and well,” according to WSAV. The issue, the statement read, was a privacy concern on behalf of one of the faculty members, and not a religious one.
 
“Bulloch County Schools nor BES’s administrators have not, nor do they plan to, remove any student’s learning experiences about Christmas or any other season holiday. Students returned Monday from Thanksgiving break, and already student’s holiday artwork is going up on bulletin boards, walls and doorways,” the statement added.
 
Other schools across the nation are restricting Christmas related items. York Preparatory Academy in Rock Hill, S.C. has banned Christmas carols with religious tones such as “Joy to the World” and “Oh Come All Ye Faithful.”

The Supreme Court has been very clear that religious expression in schools is 100% Constitutional as long as it is student initiated.  They have also made it very clear that INDIVIDUAL religious expression is Constitutional in the workplace -- if you are a teacher it is legal to have a bible on your desk, and it is also for you to sponsor a student led bible study, Christian fellowship or prayer group. In fact, in their rulings they have stated that it is UNconstitutional to prohibit such things. Yet progressives continue to try and intimidate schools and business in order to achieve their goals.
