Kids Singing "Joy to the World" Are Bullies

A group of parents in Missoula, Mont. are upset over the religious nature of Christmas songs performed at a local elementary school — alleging the songs about the Baby Jesus [are] unconstitutional and a “form of bullying.”

The parents, who declined to be identified, are threatening to sue the Missoula County Public School District unless songs like “Joy to the World” and “Good Christian Men Rejoice” are replaced with secular tunes. ...

They said they have no problem with Frosty the Snowman or Santa Claus — but the real reason for the Christmas season has no place in school concerts, they argued.

But no, Virginia; there's no war on Christmas.
