At a time when many would incite us over a rash of blatant, overt assaults on all things Judeo-Christian, here's a surprising twist
on political correctness - a 12-year old boy had to leave his school's holiday dance because he dressed up as Santa Claus. Maybe someone decided to be fair to both deity and idolatry, as the rhetoric you hear from some quarters would have you believe that a character like Santa Claus, whose story seems to be removed from the religious significance of Christmas and who could even be called a children's god, might be favored because of a general anti-Christian bias. Maybe not.
Whatever else anyone might think of this story, I don't think there was a sensible reason to hurt this kid's feelings over something people all over America do every year in the holiday season, and therefore I don't think his school did anyone any good with this action. I hope he'll be cheered by numerous letters of support.
