Are we still in AMERICA!!!! or what.....

Hey guys, I was invited to bring my Guitar into my 4 year olds preschool Friday for a " Winter Fest" to play some festive songs. Well, I know a few Traditional Christmas songs along with a ton of heavy metal stuff. I told the two teachers of the songs I prepared and was told that this was a winter fest not a Christmas fest because of the origin of different races it may offend I CANT PLAY ANYTHING THAT HAS THE WORD CHRISTMAS, SANTA JESUS, OR ANYTHING IN RELATION TO OUR WESTERN RELIGIOUS BELIEFS.
Now dont get me wrong though I beleive in God and am not praticing Religion I feel it would be hypocracy if I protested, but I am confused on what country I am living in. I am not prejudice or care what people beleive in( as long as there happy and not hurting anyone) but maybe 30% of his class is of ethnic culture including the one teacher, mind you this takes place in a Christian Church.

So, I am not heart broken but feel that this situation( regardless of my upbringing) has left me naked in the fetal position as I try to figure out what songs I can learn in two days without offending, Please help!! and lets not make this Racial....

John

Agreed with 3ddd totally. Sing whatever you want and know assuming it is suitable for children like every christmas song that I've ever heard. What are they going to do, fire you? What a bunch of BS......

To set an example...I would have walked out and not played for the class. Im not overly religious, but this country was founded on Christianity and we celebrate Christmas here. This offensive crap is rediculous...If you dont like how we do it here..then dont come here.

I'm with 3ddd on this one! Tell them you aren't showing up then. Damn strange the government can dictate religion when they want to despite the Constitution. You can bet your ass they'll be taught every ethnic song on the books for their "special" days. Tell them you'll play Feliz Navidad! LOL

They need to round up all those immigrants and send them packing ,back to where ever they came from. And don't let the door hit you in the ass when your leaving! God Bless the US and long live Santa Clause, the Easter Bunny and the damm tooth fairy! If you dont like them your not an AMERICAN!!!!!

Re: Are we still in AMERICA!!!! or what.....

yea, I dont care if your black, white , green, purple.... but when did these restrictions keep us from being who we were born to be... We can live in a mixed society and share our beliefs in hopes to inspire one another but I feel like I have two hands around my neck taking away my freedom!!!

Who started this SHIZNIT anyway......

Start with jingle bells, I don't think there are any issues there. They will get a false sense of security from it. Then play what you feel is right. They can't fire you!
