Wisconsin Elementary School Changes 'Silent Night' While Decorating For A Christmas Witch

"In Dodgeville, Wisconsin, Ridgeway Elementary School's 'winter program' has changed the name of 'Silent Night' to 'Cold in the Night.' Sung to the tune of 'Silent Night,' the lyrics include: 'Cold in the night, no one in sight, winter winds whirl and bite, how I wish I were happy and warm, safe with my family out of the storm.'

The 'winter program' included decorating classrooms with Santa Claus, Kwanza symbols, Menorahs, and Labafana--a Christmas witch!

Also in Wisconsin, the Glendale-River Hills School District has banned every Christmas song which has any Christian 'motive or theme.' But while banning Christian Christmas songs, the district permits secular holiday songs as well as songs celebrating Hanukkah. In defending this policy, Frances Smith, the district administrator, says that the Hanukkah songs are more cultural than spiritual.

What these schools are doing to our children is not educating, but indoctrinating! And they are using Christmas as an excuse. Following the lead of the National Educational Association, Wisconsin educational leaders preach tolerance and diversity while being highly intolerant! Most of the residents of Wisconsin are tolerant, but not their educational leaders.

Banning nativity scenes. Banning Christmas songs in school. Banning Christmas in advertising. Calling a Christmas tree a 'holiday' tree. Calling a Christmas parade a holiday parade. Refusing to mention the Reason for the season. It is time to take a stand for our children, our families, our faith and our freedom! "

You are very incorrect. The school in point of fact did not change the song. Rather, they only used an EXISTING song that had already been published that happened to have the same tune as Silent Night.

So sorry to disrupt the latest agenda you've been hearing about, though.
