Cabal of Ill Spirited Honolulu Parents Strike against Holiday

The cancellation of a Christmas concert in Honolulu is amongst the latest offenses by a nationwide conspiracy of the ill spirited anti-Christmas coalition plotting the downfall of the Christian holiday for their own nefarious purposes... That, or parents unrelated to other objections nationwide who were concerned about the separation of church and state objected to church members volunteering to put on a concert at a local high-school, but honestly, who could believe that?

In Little Rock, Ark., recently, a stink was made over elementary school children going to see a local church production of “Merry Christmas Charlie Brown,” so the school kids never went because one parent was offended that Linus was going to tell the story about the birth of Jesus.

In Honolulu, a Christmas concert was canceled following the threat of a lawsuit. For the past six years, the Moanalua High School orchestra, with help from volunteers at the New Hope Church, has put on the concert and raised more than $200,000 for a charity that treats poor people in Africa. In a letter to the Department of Education, Mitch Kahle, founder of the Hawaii Citizens for the Separation of State and Church, took issue with the involvement of New Hope Church, and the show was called off.
