School district bans Santa Claus et al

As a way to show respect to all religions, an Oregon school district has moved to ban all religions from receiving their respect. That is, all religious-themed decorations, Christian and Jewish, have been banned during the Christian and Jewish holidays.

This brilliant politically correct decision was revealed Tuesday and bans decorations with images such as that powerfully Biblical figure from the New Testament, Santa Claus. Oh, wait--that's not right--Santa isn't a religious figure anymore than a pine tree with lights is a religious monument.

The brilliant notice to staff regarding the ban read: 
"You may still decorate your door or office if you like, but we ask that you be respectful and sensitive to the diverse perspectives and beliefs of our community and refrain from using religious-themed decorations or images like Santa Claus."
Thankfully, the school district still allows one group of students to pray several times a day in rooms provided along with prayer mats. 

Ironically, it is rumored that it is the parents of these students who are grossly offended by religious objects--especially Jewish objects.
