School Cancels ‘A Christmas Carol’ Play Due to ‘God Bless Us’ Line
A principal at an elementary school in Pennsylvania has canceled its production of “A Christmas Carol” due to complaints about a line said during the play and concerns about it taking too much time out of classroom instruction.
Officials at Centerville Elementary School in East Hempfield Township said they canceled the play because it took too much time away from classroom instruction, but many parents believe it was because two parents complained about a line said in the play, Fox News reports.
The unnamed parents reportedly complained about the line “God bless us, everyone” said by Tiny Tim.
“I was very surprised because it’s been going on for decades and it’s a tradition at the school that everybody looks forward to,” said Jane Burkhart, who knows children at the school, to WHTM. full storyPlease Share: Please Follow Us For Updates:
