Holiday Concert Rally Canceled

Rally canceled.

The pro-Christmas concert rally planned for Friday has been canceled, because of still developing reasons for the concert's rescheduling.

Peggy Doherty, the rally's coordinator stated:

"Thanks is extended to all those who planned on attending and are still encouraged to contact school officials or the superintendent's office for more information."

You know, after seeing the reports about 27 people killed in an elementary school in CT, with 18 plus being children..I think this is a ridiculous argument. Hug your kids when they get home.

Honestly, I think your outlook maybe leads parents to complain. People don't want preachy. In your comment, you actually give Left wing and non religious people advice on how to teach their children morals....you realize how silly that sounds. It sounds like the leftists complaining to the school about the concert.... The Children should sing Holiday songs out of tradition regardless of whether or not the lyrics have religious overtones. Adults should be able to handle that whether they are agnostic or atheist. And the religious people can accept the fact that some of these people view the lord as the Easter bunny. And get over it.

Maybe the father who shot up these children and staff was upset at something that happened at school..some policy. The principal and psychologist were killed with others. Maybe he was a disturbed individual. I just think we need to think about the feelings of others, the watch the name calling, be tolerant of everybody's differences and maybe the world will be a better place.

I find hilarious how they are (stupid) people in this town who complained about the various songs' religious affiliation. They feel offended, because they were too Christian, Jewish [etc.] the ironic factor is that every song proclaims nothing but the sharing of love and joy with ALL people... Yet those (moronic) people who complained are offended. Why persecute something that is for the common good?! If asked, those who complained would respond how our state must be separated from religion. Well if we are totally secular, wouldn't that mean we are an atheist state-pretty hypocritical. Religious freedom and acceptance doesn't have to mean that the president cannot say "Merry Christmas" on December 25th or that school children cannot sing "Spin the Dreidel" in a school concert. It means that we as a society will accept and respect the singing and the wishing of a merry Christmas in the same way that atheism is respected now. And if singing simple songs truly upsets (moronic) people, then don't go to the concert and take your kid out of it. Nobody is forcing you to do so.
