Watch: School Cuts Religious References From Silent Night

The popular Christmas song Silent Night was written by a young Roman Catholic priest by the name of Joseph Mohr.  The song was first performed on Christmas Eve at St. Nicholas Church in Oberndorf, Austria.  The song is about the birth of Jesus Christ.

Despite these religious facts, a school in Long Island decided to remove references to Jesus Christ from the song for a 5th Grade choir concert to “avoid offending non-Christians.”

Via CBS New York (h/t Gateway Pundit):

The song “Silent Night” is at the heart of a concert controversy on Long Island.

Kings Park school officials removed several religious references, including “Holy infant” and “Christ the Savior,” from the popular Christmas carol before a student concert last week, WCBS 880′s Mike Xirinachs reported.

The intent was to avoid offending non-Christians, but the change left others upset.

“I’m not too happy with that, it’s kind of insulting,” parent Robert Dowd said.

“There’s been a lot of changes in the schools and I don’t agree with them,” one man said.

“It’s kind of embarrassing that they would do something like that,” another man said.

The school superintendent and principal of the Ralph J. Osgood Intermediate School have since apologized.

They admit it was a mistake to edit the song and promise it won’t happen again, Xirinachs reported.
