ACLJ Puts Grinch in a Closet

Fifth and sixth graders sang "Away in a Manger" last week for their Christmas Program. The ACLU had filed suit last year after singing the same song. This year Jay Sekulow and the ACLJ thwarted the Grinch. Of course, the ACLU sent a couple of their lawyers to monitor this years' program.

Late last week at the Lakeview Elementary School in Wilson County, Tennessee, moms and dads, grandparents, aunts and uncles gathered at the school to watch the performance of the elementary students’ Christmas program. Also in attendance were three lawyers, including our Senior Counsel from the American Center for Law and Justice. The Wilson County School System has been sued by the ACLU because last year’s program included the singing of the song, “Away in a Manger.” The ACLU actually alleged in the complaint that when people joined in to sing “Away in a Manger,” it violated the Constitution because the song is “exclusively Christian in nature, celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.”
