A Nebraska elementary school principal was placed on administrative leave this week after she sent out an unauthorized memo banning a slew of Christmas-related items, including candy canes, which she claimed are shaped like a “J” for Jesus Christ.


Manchester Elementary principal Jennifer Sinclair sent a memo to parents and staff banning traditional Christmas decor including Santa Claus, Christmas trees, red and green items and candy canes because, “Historically,” she wrote, “the shape is a ‘J’ for Jesus. The red is for the blood of Christ, and the white is a symbol of his resurrection. This would also include different colored candy canes.”


Ms. Sinclair also included a list of secular holiday items that she deemed inclusive enough for a school setting, including polar bears, penguins, yetis, gingerbread people and snowmen.


Free speech advocacy group Liberty Counsel, which posted the memo online, sent a letter to Elkhorn Public Schools demanding that the ban be reversed, claiming it “violates the U.S. Constitution by showing hostility toward Christianity.”


District spokesperson Kara Perchal said Thursday that Ms. Sinclair was put on administrative leave and the ban had been reversed, adding that the memo did not “reflect the policy of Elkhorn Public Schools regarding holiday symbols

Missing from this is the fact that he’s just completely wrong. The candy cane is in the shape of a shepherd’s staff, it’s not a “J”. This guy is an educator?

It probably wont happen in our lifetime but eventually someone will try to get Christmas (and all 'religious holidays') taken off the calendar.

Jesus hatin' psycho bitch. What a fucked-up way to live your life. She's so damn ignorant, she doesn't know when a candy cane is upside down. Probably still pissed that Hillary lost.

Obviously, but I've heard Christians claiming the story she's repeating.  I've never looked at a candy cane or seen a picture of one that it was displayed upside down to be a J.

She looks nutty as a fruitcake. Wouldn't look bad in the trophy case though.

Every year someone, the Chamber of Commerce or somebody comes out with the top jobs of the year or the coming.
I guess I must have missed the list where being insane was one of the top professions.
It seriously seems like people all over the world are working overtime to hone their crazy or to out crazy the last crazy person to make the news.
And it always seems to be worse at this time of year.
What this world needs is another epidemic like the Aids epidemic but one that weeds out the crazies. Seriously.

The clue comes from the fact that it's called a candy "cane" and not a candy "J".  As for her, man, look at those eyes.  They've got "run for the exits!" printed all over them.
