Clergyman Bans "O Little Town of Bethlehem"

(Dorset, England) Dearly beloved, the Reverend Stephen Coulter has spewed his political slant into Christmas by mandating that "O Little Town of Bethlehem" shall not be sung.

According to Coulter, instead of celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, Christmas should remind people that the Israelis have put up a fence and stationed security guards amid a conflict that has devastated the West Bank. Apparently, Bethlehem just doesn't look the same way it did 2,000 years ago.

Therefore, Reverend Coulter is banning a popular Christmas song for reasons that have nothing to do with the birth of Jesus nor with Christianity.

What kind of clergyman thinks the world is a better place when people are banned from singing a song? A bully, that's what kind. Reverend Coulter is a bully.

Of course, it's possible that he considered banning an additional song. I would bet that Rev. Coulter also has a global warming pimple on his caboose , therefore, we should be thankful that he didn't ban "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear."
