Minority overrules majority

Once again it seems that a few people can't let others have a little fun. A "handful of parents" have decided that Halloween offends them and have forced the Underwood Elementary School in Newton, MA, to cancel the school's festivities. In that same vane, I would imagine Christmas offends these same parents since it's based on a pagan celebration and isn't anywhere near the time of year theologians believe the birth of Jesus Christ occurred.

Student ghosts unmasked in Newton: "When students at Underwood Elementary School walk to their classrooms on Monday, there will be no witches, SpongeBob SquarePants, or Johnny Damons there to greet them. No skeleton paintings or Frankenstein tattoos, either. The school's principal said yesterday he acceded to the complaints of a handful of parents who said that because the school's traditional Halloween celebrations offended their religious beliefs, they would not send their children to school if the revelry continued this year."
