fear of?

I received a political correctness jolt this morning when I picked up the paper. The headline reads, “School district reverts to winter: Board votes unanimously to drop the ‘Christmas’ from SK’s ‘Christmas Break’ ” The story continued by explaining how this change of events had cumulated and one quote that caught my eye was, “South Kitsap is not a Christian School district. . . It’s a public school district.” He’s right—South Kitsap is not a Christian school district. However, Christmas is not just a Christian holiday. Who is he afraid of? What is he afraid of? Is he afraid that the ‘Christ’ in Christmas will taint school kids and lead them astray? South Kitsap apparently hasn’t been effective enough in grinding out all common sense and moral standards, now Christmas break has to go.
