ACLU: No Christmas
For Tennessee Schools
Tennessee: ACLU Sends Letter to Public Schools Warning Them Not to Celebrate Christmas…
The American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee is warning all 137 public school superintendents across the state of Tennessee to refrain from winter celebrations focusing primarily on one religious holiday.
The group sent the letter citing U.S. Supreme Court decisions that support the opinion that such celebrations amount to an unconstitutional endorsement of religion.
In a news release, Hedy Weinberg, executive director of the ACLU of Tennessee, said the letter was sent in response to numerous complaints from families.
The letter states that the ACLU welcomes “holidays that teach children about a variety of holidays. We believe, however, that holiday celebrations that focus primarily on one religious holiday can result in indoctrination as well as a sense within students who do not share that religion of being outsiders to the school.”
