A NINE-YEAR-OLD boy was banned from his school Christmas party because he does not believe in God.I would like to know the name of a Christian Church that intentionally excludes non-believers. It kinda' defeats the point, dontcha' think?!?! Mr. Davidson (along with Mr. O'Reilly) obviously was not paying attention in Sunday School.
Douglas Stewart was asked to stay at home while his classmates were treated to jelly and ice-cream, followed by a visit from Santa and presents.
Douglas's mother, Dawn Riddell, was informed that he was unwelcome at the celebration because she had withdrawn him from religious education classes at Cluny Primary School, in Buckie, Banffshire, earlier in the school term.
Ms Riddell, 38, said the headteacher, Ian Davidson,had told her that as the youngster had no interest in religion, he could not celebrate the birth of Christ.
A LOCAL council has banned staff from kissing under the mistletoe, it emerged yesterday.[Insert dirty joke here.]
Hyndburn Council bosses in Lancashire sent a memo telling staff not to be "misled by mistletoe" over the festive season and warning against "inappropriate party behaviour"
including suggestive language, unwanted jokes and bodily contact.
The memo, also said "Secret Santa" gifts should be carefully chosen so as not to cause offence and risqué items should be avoided.
