Concord Christmas Spectacular allowed to continue with scaled back Nativity portion

Concord Community Schools' Christmas Spectacular in 2015 included this static display of mannequins depicting the Nativity, which a court ruled does not violate the Constitution.

SOUTH BEND — A U.S. District Court judge on Wednesday ruled that Concord High School's Christmas program last year did not violate Constitutional prohibitions against the endorsement of religion by public entities.

It's a step forward in the controversial case filed on behalf of a Concord High School student against Concord Community Schools stemming from the high school's annual Christmas program. But it doesn't completely resolve the matter.

There is still hope for humanity.


A CHRISTmas program, is allowed to acknowledge the reason for the holiday, CHRIST.
Imagine that.
