Indiana government school removes "Allah" from holiday show after protestsPosted by DarthDilbert at 12/15/2009 03:31:00 PM
A Hamilton Southeastern elementary removed a mention of Allah in its holiday show after it drew the anger of a national conservative Christian group.
Lantern Road Elementary Principal Danielle Thompson said school leaders sought to teach inclusiveness through the second-grade program, which included pieces about Christmas, Hanukkah, Ramadan, Las Posadas and Kwanzaa.
"It went off last night without a hitch," Thompson said. "Several families thought it was a nice program."
School officials removed a phrase saying "Allah is God" after the American Family Association launched a protest of the program on its electronic newsletter.
