Well,a Bieber song is the epitome of musical pablum....

Not that that's an excuse for this asinine decision.

Justin Bieber's music is offensive to the whole of humanity. This way everyone suffers equally.
 
2012-06-10 01:31:07 PM
Truth be told, that is a really bad song.
 
2012-06-10 01:33:39 PM
I'm okay with not having small children sing about god at their school. They could have picked any other number of America-related songs to do though, instead of going right for the teeny bopper.

At least they didn't do that Commie, This land is your land pablum.

Does the principal know the God of Islam, the God of Christianity & the God of Judaism is the same God? The only people offended would be atheists.

I know for a fact she is. She buys turpentine in small quantities almost every week from my online store so she can erase "In God We Trust" off the cash she uses. Weird bird.

By the way, kindergarten graduation ceremonies? They aren't really for the kids.

"Proud to Be an American" is a shiatty-ass song anyway. As is anything by Bieber.

I don't remember any singing at either of my graduations (real ones, high school and college). When the fark did people start singing at graduations? This is a trend that needs to die out quickly.

America and anyone's god have nothing to do with each other and the bullshiat legislation passed in th 1950's to include it in our national anthem and on our money should be reversed.

The school I teach at has a prayer room for Muslims, plus an entirely separate cafeteria for Muslims where no pork products are allowed, also the female teachers are required to blow the Muslim students twice a day.

'Round here they sing that farking song at everything. So while I do feel that it is ridiculous to ban all music with a religious theme (would destroy any decent school music program, if there is such a thing anymore) for this particular song, I'd be okay with this.

I wonder if she is also aware of unicorns. Because the two of them both exist exclusively in peoples imaginations. As much as I wish it were the first damn amendment, and required execution for any public official suspected of believing in the sky wizard, it does not exist, its a good idea, but just a fantasy. So please stop acting as if it were law instead of just something Ben Franklin mused about between French whores.

There are also other gods that families at the school may worship besides Yahweh/Allah, such as Vishnu, Thor, or the god of tits and wine. Also, there are conservative Jews that believe that writing down the name of God and discarding the paper is offensives to God, therefore having the song printed up in the program could be a potential issue.

I really feel for school administrators these days. No matter what you do, you'll have people mad at you that are offended by you trying not to offend other cultures.
