Demoting Jesus Christ

Complete the sentence, if you can. “I send my children to public schools to be educated by Far Left Crazy dimwits because _________.”

For the latest example, we cross the Atlantic to a school in London where the headmaster, in order to make things more “inclusive,” has changed the lyrics of Away in a Manger, in the school’s Christmas pageant, to strip away the Lordship of Jesus Christ (

So the kids can’t sing “Lord Jesus.” It can only be “little baby Jesus.” To make it more inclusive. So as not to express any Christian content to Muslims, Hindus, atheists, or people who worship trapdoor spiders.

But if Jesus is only a little baby, and not Lord of anything, then what the dickens are we celebrating? The birth of a nice guy? If Jesus is not the Christ, if He is not the Lord of lords and King of kings, then why do Christmas at all? As C.S. Lewis explained, if Christ is not who and what He says He is, then He is either a liar or a lunatic. And why should such a one be celebrated?

The more “inclusive” you try to make something, the more you thin it out–until whatever meaning it had has been diluted out of existence.

The nooze story quotes some angry parents, but apparently they’re not angry enough so that school big shots need have any fear of them.

But that’s how public servants become the masters of the public: when they lose their fear of the people.

  1. But this doesn’t go far enough! After all, think of all the female-identified children at the school who might be triggered at the thought of celebrating birth instead of a-woman’s-right-to-choose. Oh, the horror!

    Maybe I shouldn’t have said this. I may have given some social justice warrior an idea.

  2. For the left, inclusive means spread it thin until it’s meaningless. [I know you said this, but so have I – lol]. Diversity perversity. We put everything that belongs to each of us into one great big pot and out comes the State. One size fits all – adjust!

    1. Nice way of putting it. I like that. Sometimes i’m too angry to say it nicely so I either get challenged or say nothing. “Unwholesome things happen to honest words, when leftards use them.” If you think “leftards” is to insulting and defeats the purpose let me know. “Leftard” makes me feel better – and just because i’m not a leftard doesn’t make me less privileged.
