Where am I going with this? Well, upon attending the very first marching band competition This is the very first performance:
I am not sure this even needs commentary but...
Really?! I mean Really ?! This is outrageous. It isn't like a band was doing a number from Jesus Christ Superstar or a historically significant piece of liturgical music. This is like something from a tent revival. I don't even have words for how ridiculous this is. Is the band director so blinded by christian privilege that he/she didn't even think about it? Or, are they deliberately trying to push an agenda or prove some sort of point?
Can you imagine if the first line were allahu akbar!
It baffles me that over and over again, public school teachers and administrators do, or allow, these things to happen. Anyone who cannot understand or refuses to follow these simplest of laws regarding separation of church and state, especially in a public school setting where the emotional and social grown of children is at its most venerable, have no business working in education.
