DUmmies support teacher who grinched all over 1st graders

OP:
New Jersey teacher tells first-graders there is no Santa
A heartless New Jersey substitute teacher shattered the hearts of first-graders when she revealed that Santa Claus isn’t real, according to a report Friday.

The unnamed sub let the Christmas spirit-stomping secret slip at Cedar Hill School in Montville on Thursday, prompting officials to send parents apology letters, according to NJ.com.
(etc)

A bunch of the humbugging, joy-stealing libs not only want teachers spoiling Christmas for young ones, they of course relate it to their war on us silly dumb theists:

137. Bitter and angry? Cynical?

Not at all. I think kids are bright and vibrant and thrive in a world where they’re treated honestly and equally. I am quite amused by your personal attacks, however. It’s delightful to see people flailing.

My own children specifically (raised in a household of skeptics and atheists) would probably have to be idiots to still believe in a fairy tale by 1st grade. That’s just not the way they were brought up, honestly.

Kids raised in a household where things are presented differently may end up being a bit more. . . credulous."

Codeine's kids are going to put him/her in the cheapest, dirtiest rest home in the area for sucking every hint of magic out of childhood.

40. OMG will the liberal war on Christmas never end?"

Apparently not. Not so long as even a single child is able to celebrate the holiday without guilt, disillusion, bitterness, and sectarian hatred in their hearts.

2. I never put forward the idea of Santa, but I wasn't

a pushy bitch who insisted on fucking with other people's families, either.

6. Before I am given a spot on your ignore list I'd like to ask you;

are cool with a teacher telling a little muslim girl wearing a hijab that nowhere in the Quran does it say her hair should be covered and her parents are just making a monkey of her?

Also if the truth is so important to you, would you tell an illegal immigrant child that their parents are breaking the law and then report them to the proper authorities?

5. The frequency at which I think that word should be used is incredibly low.

But, yeah, it fits in this case.

As each of my kids grew out of Santa, and started asking the really thought about questions, we told them the truth, and reminded them of how much fun it all was. We entrusted them to be keepers of the Santa faith, to not spoil it for others, and to try to be a bit like Santa whenever possible.

Our oldest is almost 30, and when she or any of our kids gets a gift from under our tree, it still says it's from Santa, and they would not want it any other way.

8. I took the time to read through the thread.

I don't visit there much. There were quite a few folks that found the substitute teacher to be very much in the wrong. I would imagine the main proponent of dicking up Christmas for little kids is one bitter prune faced crone though.

Any time I follow a link to DU, or the Cave, I feel sort of bad for many of the people on the sites. They seem so angry, and spend so much time trying to justify each other's anger over things that don't even matter most of the time. It's just politics. If you don't like how things are going, it will change in a few years. Support what you care about, but live your life regardless. Politics should never come before family, friends, and personally helping those that need it. I have had great fortune in my life in both my career and my family. I did not ask the people that taught me things or helped me if they were liberal or conservative, and the people I help now, I do not ask that about them. I just see someone needs a meal, a ride, help fixing their home, or advice within my expertise, and do what I can.
