The Continuing Attack on Christianity (Part 2)

At one university, a student Christian a cappella group was not allowed to sing a song about Jesus at a campus tree-lighting ceremony. At another, the tree-lighting event was renamed to delete the word “Christmas” from its title.

At James Madison University, the “Into Hymn” Christian a cappella group was told it could only sing a secular song at the public school’s annual “Unity Tree” lighting ceremony hosted Friday, The Breeze campus newspaper reports.

The controversial song the Christian singers wanted to sing? “Mary, Did You Know,” which includes the stanzas “Mary, did you know that your baby boy would one day walk on water? Mary, did you know that your baby boy would save our sons and daughters?”

Songs the group could have sung included “Frosty the Snowman,” “Winter Wonderland” or “Jingle Bells,” but singers balked at that list after having spent time practicing “Mary, Did You Know,” The Breeze reports.
