 McCall Middle School in Winchester Massachusetts recently cancelled a field trip to see a live performance of A Miracle on 34th Street. Why you ask? I’m glad you asked. Because of the objectionable content of the play. That’s right, OBJECTIONABLE CONTENT. It appears as though at least one parent complained about the field trip and ruined it for everyone else. Here is the letter the gutless principal sent out to all parents announcing the cancellation of the harmless field-trip: 

Dear 7th Grade Parents and Guardians,

Recently, I was asked why the entire 7th Grade is planning to participate in a field trip on December 19 to see a live performance of Miracle on 34th Street at the Stoneham Theatre when the basic theme is objectionable to some members of our McCall Middle School 7th Grade community. After conferring with the 7th Grade Team Leaders and my administrative colleagues across the school system, I have decided to cancel this field trip. While I believe there are valid reasons for participating in such a trip, the objectionable nature of the content overrides these concerns.

The 7th Graders have been notified about this decision in homerooms this morning. Any money students have paid to date has been returned to them by their homeroom teachersIf you have any questions or comments about this decision, please contact me at 781-xxx-xxxx.

Sincerely yours, Evander French, Jr., Principal.

 The objectionable nature of the content? What is objectionable? I don’t know. Whatever happened to what used to happen when I was a child? If a student’s parents didn’t want their son or daughter going on a field trip they didn’t get permission and spent the day in school while the others went on the trip. I suppose we can’t have that nowadays because it will damage them for life by not being included so we must ruin everyone else’s good time.

 Now let’s look at this a little deeper. Children in Massachusetts can’t go on a field trip to see A Miracle On 34th Street because of the objectionable content, yet here in New Hampshire students the same age CAN take a field trip to Planned Parenthood?

 Children in Massachusetts can’t go on a field trip to A Miracle On 34th Street, but Barack Obama want to teach sex education to children in kindergarten?

 Children in Massachusetts can’t go on a field trip to A Miracle on 34th Street, but a child the same age in Maine can get birth control without a parent’s knowledge?

 Someone please explain to me how this can make any sense? I am really trying to understand how we got to this point as a nation. It is a sad state of affairs when it is politically incorrect to take students to see A Miracle On 34th Street but is is perfectly acceptable to take the same aged students to learn about abortion. Does the left really feel this amount of anger towards religion that they are unwilling to let their children even watch A Miracle On 34th Street, while at the same time pushing their pro choice agenda to children the same age?

 Something has gone wrong in this country. I don’t know when or how it started, I don’t know how it became acceptable, I don’t know how it became mainstream, but I do know one thing.

We must stop it before it is too late.

    This is scarier than Islamofacism! This is why we need Ron Paul and this would STOP.

    Until folks get the intestinal fortitude to stand up to these Nazi’s, whatever freedom remains will gradually be taken away.

    Since when have the needs of the one outwieghed the needs of the many?

    Whatever happened to majority rule? Not fair?

    Well, DUH! To some people unfairness is inevitable.
