BORDENTOWN TOWNSHIP, NJ — A New Jersey school district has issued a new rule that says no Christmas music can be played at this year’s winter concerts.

There won’t be any Hanukkah or Kwanzaa music allowed, either.

The superintendent of the district told parents that there were some parents who questioned last year’s musical selections.

After a legal review, a decision was made that religious music should not be part of the elementary school programs.

    Over 3000 gods actually, but the religiously inclined never let the facts get in the way of their superstitions.

    So sad sharkdiver that you don’t understand there is only one true God. Whether you believe it or not. He does exist.
