Maryland school district to strip references to religious holidays on school calendars

MontcoMuslims640

The Montgomery County school board voted Tuesday to eliminate all references to religious holidays on school calendars, beginning in the 2015-16 school year. That includes Christmas and Easter, as well as Jewish holidays like Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah.

The vote came after a recommendation by schools Superintendent Joshua Starr that the board consider removing the names of religious holidays from the calendar in response to a request from Muslim community leaders to give equal billing to their holy day of Eid al-Adha. Starr told MyFoxDC that the county’s public schools would still be closed on Christian and Jewish holidays due to the significant number of staff and student absences on those days, but technically not due to any religious observance.

With the rise of the Muslim population and the politically correct society we now live in, you knew this was coming…get ready for “winter break” and “spring break” to replace Christmas and Easter.  Happy Holidays, people, you get what you vote for, literally.

Gender-inclusive “purple penguins” invade Nebraska school district

pic_giant4_100814_SM_Non-Gendered-DT

“Let’s get started, purple penguins!” might be the next phrase spoken in a Nebraska school to replace “boys and girls” in order to be gender-inclusive.  Where did this madness come from?  A training document given to middle-school teachers at the Lincoln Public Schools and instructs teachers to use “gender-inclusive” phrases such as “purple penguins” instead of time-honored, traditional phrases such as “boys and girls” and “ladies and gentlemen”.

The training document warns teachers against lining up students as “boys and girls”, for it may offend those special children who have a gender identity crisis.

12 easysteps on the way to gender inclusiveness… Avoid asking kids to line up as boys or girls or separating them by gender. Instead, use things like “odd and even birth date,” or “Which  would you choose: skateboards or bikes/milk or juice/dogs or cats/summer or winter/talking or listening. ”lnvite students to come up with choices themselves. Consider using tools like the “appointment schedule” to form pairs or groups. Always ask yourself, “Will this configuration create a gendered space?”

Why would you ask yourself that?  Because Gender Spectrum says so!

Gender Spectrum, an organization that focuses on providing direction on gender inclusive matters so that sensitivity is at the forefront for school children.  Other instructions in their training document include asking all students about their preferred pronouns and regaling the classroom with the all-inclusive “all genders welcome” door hangers.

So, purple penguins, isn’t it wonderful that traditional methods of addressing males and females have gotten so twisted and obscured with today’s politically correct society that now your kids are reaping the consequences?  If you would like to express your opinion on this imposing of political correctness upon the communities., contact Gender Spectrum and the Lincoln Public Schools .

Nancy Pelosi and her political correctness with the term “illegal aliens”

pelosi House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)  got into a verbal battle with a reporter Wednesday when, on the subject of President Obama’s threat of executive action to allow illegal aliens in the country without action from Congress, a reporter said, “If President Obama does what he has promised to do and take executive action to legalize some illegal aliens in the United States…” The reporter was then cut off abruptly by the former House Speaker. “Are you referring to undocumented people who are in the United States?” Pelosi interjected. “Illegal aliens, yes ma’am,” the reporter confirmed. “Undocumented people, OK,” Pelosi spewed. Nancy Pelosi refuses to say “illegal aliens” but instead calls these foreign lawbreakers as “undocumented people”.  Nancy, you are a political hack fool who espouses anti-American views.  “Illegal alien” is a legal descriptor that has been used for centuries.  Just because you don’t like the notion that it vilifies illegal aliens, you want to burn America at the stake by refusing to call them what they are.  Say it with me: illegal aliens.  Watch this Congresswoman’s stupidity in action:

Georgia high school’s statue ignites ire of atheist groups

FOOTBALLstatue

A granite statue at a Georgia high school field house is drawing ire from two atheist groups: the Freedom from Religion Foundation and the American Humanist Association.  They have written separate letters to the school district, calling the statue “unconstitutional”.  They say that the statue violates the separation of church and state.

The football team’s tradition of touching the stone, which has biblical inscriptions on it, troubles these two atheist groups so much that they have demanded the statue either be removed immediately, the inscriptions be removed, or the statue be covered up.

Schools Superintendent Allen McCannon said the board and its attorneys are “investigating options available to it regarding the monument including, but not limited to, removal of the monument or modifying the monument in some manner.”

This is a classic case of political correctness.  Intolerance of others’ religious beliefs seems to take precedence over freedom in this day and age.  We need to get back to common sense and freedom.  Contact the Madison County School District to voice your opinion and concern over this PC madness.

beheadingtop_20140927_163739

Authorities are treating the beheading at the Oklahoma meat processing plant Vaughan Foods as “workplace violence”.

The FBI is investigating the murder in which Alton Nolen, who had just been fired, attacked Colleen Hufford.  He stabbed the employee several times and then beheaded her.  Nolen then stabbed another woman at the plant and was workplaceviolencesubsequently stopped by a reserve sheriff’s deputy who was on duty at the plant at the time.  The deputy shot Nolen, who is now in stable condition.

Nolan’s Facebook page has several photos of Usama bin Laden and a screen shot from the 9/11 terror attacks. It also presents the quote: “I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smile ye above their necks and smite all their fingertips off them.”  Nolan had recently attempted to convert fellow co-workers to Islam.

“Workplace violence” is just another PC term for “terrorism”.

Air Force dumps ‘so help me God’ from enlistment oath

air-force-oath

The bastardization of America continues with the degrading of American tradition in our military of taking the oath of service and saying “so help me, God” therein.  What caused this?  Blame the American Humanist Association, who threatened to sue the government after an atheist airman complained.

While this is still an option for service members to utter, there is not a total ban of the phrase.  However, when stories like this arise, I will continue to post its ludicrous political correctness…so help me, God!

Football team forced to remove Christian crosses from helmets

Cross-Arkansas-State

Football players at Arkansas State University were ordered to either remove a Christian cross decal from their helmets or modify it into a mathematical sign after a Jonesboro attorney complained that the image violated the U.S. Constitution, writes Todd Starnes of Fox News.  He continues: The cross decal was meant to memorialize former player Markel Owens and former equipment manager Barry Weyer, said athletic director Terry Mohajir.  Weyer was killed in a June car crash. Owens was gunned down in Tennessee in January.

Jonesboro attorney Louis Nisenbaum sent McDaniel an email complaining about the cross decal.

“That is a clear violation of the Establishment Clause as a state endorsement of the Christian religion,” Nisenbaum wrote. “Please advise whether you agree and whether ASU will continue this practice.”

There’s really not much else to say about this but that it displays an extremely gross violation of the First Amendment.  The bastardization of the Establishment Clause continues with cases like this.

School Bans ‘Offensive’ Chick-fil-A Sandwiches

Chick-fil-A

Chik-fil-A is under fire again.  This time, it’s from the principal at California’s Ventura High School.  This week,  Principal Val Wyatt banned the football booster club from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches over fears that people might be offended.

“With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus,” Wyatt told the Ventura County Star.

Superintendent of of the Ventura Unified School District, Trudy Tuttle, said, “We value inclusivity and diversity on our campus, and all our events and activities are going to adhere to our mission,” Ariaga told CBS News in Los Angeles.

Oh, really, Trudy?  Chik-fil-A does not harbor ill will towards anyone, and they have a strong devout history of believing in traditional marriage held under Christian beliefs.  They have support the school district with donating hundreds of meals and help to raise funds for the booster club and football program.  You, Trudy, nor your ilk “value inclusivity and diversity” as you say.

“I work really hard to keep Ventura High School from being a marketplace for all kinds of vendors to come to the campus and reap profit,” she told the newspaper.

Chik-fil-A wasn’t making a penny on this, so your motives are clearly political and biased against those who do not agree with gay marriage.

 

Here is what Chik-fil-A president and chief operating officer Dan Cathy said in an interview with Baptist Press: “Well, guilty as charged,” he said. “We are very much supportive of the chikfiladancathyfamily – the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.”  You can read his interview here.

These actions that Principal Wyatt is taking against Chik-fil-A are grossly politically correct.  You can combat this by supporting Chik-fil-A.  Eat more chicken!

Firefighters Suspended for Refusing to Remove American Flags, Military Stickers from Lockers

maywood-fire

Four suburban Chicago firefighters were reportedly suspended after refusing to remove American flags and military stickers from their helmets and lockers.

Reportedly, Maywood Fire Department Chief Craig Bronaugh ordered an American flag to be removed from the inside of Fire Station 2.  The flag was a new one that the firefighters had purchased to replace the worn flag that had been there prior.

The firefighters say they weren’t told why their new flag was removed.  In response, they put American flags on their lockers instead.

Subsequently, Chief Bronaugh banned all decals and stickers from lockers and helmets, citing a culture of racism within the department.

David Flowers Jr., the union president, said he was relieved of duty after refusing to remove the Marine decal from his locker that he inherited from his father.

Firefighter Don Albanese then agreed to remove several patriotic stickers, but he was suspended for keeping an American flag on his locker.

The chief said he has nothing against the American flag or veterans, but that he just wanted to create an all-inclusive ban. The firefighters say they plan to meet with the chief Wednesday, the station reported.

After the outrage at this political correctness, there is a follow up:

Maywood fire chief reverses decision; mandates American flags on all lockers

Four suburban Chicago firefighters were reinstated Wednesday after being sent home for refusing to remove American flags and military stickers from their helmets and lockers.

Maywood Fire Chief Craig Bronaugh had issued a mandate for the removal of the patriotic stickers, citing a culture of racism within the department, but said Wednesday that “after review, I made a decision to put department-issued flags on every locker and in every locker room,” the Chicago Tribune reported.

Army Dad Booted From Visiting Daughter at School

army-dad

Lieutenant Colonel Sherwood Baker, who has served in the U.S. Army for 24 years, has been denied entry into his daughter’s school because being in uniform might “offend” another student.  Upon arrival at Rochester Adams High School for an appointment with his daughter’s counselor to speak about her schedule, a school security guard stopped Mr. Baker to deny him entry.

“Before he was allowed in, the security guard stopped him and said, “Sorry, you’re not allowed in the school,” Baker’s wife Rachel Ferhadson told Fox News.  “Security told him men and women in uniform weren’t allowed because it may offend another student.”

Rochester School superintendent Robert Shaner, a military veteran, has since apoligized to the family.

“The district has apologized for any perception that individuals in uniform are not welcome in the school. The district does not have a policy excluding individuals in uniform and will be working with administration and the firm that handles our security to make sure district policies are understood and communicated accurately.”
