New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 17, 1993, New Braunfels, Texas School adapts to new rules on religion in class Friday Deo i HeraldZeitung WILLIAMSVILLE AP Students educators and patents are cau tiously tiptoeing around new rules gov erning religion in Wiiliamsville schools and finding that for all the controversy little has changed since the guidelines were enacted High school students in the subur ban Buffalo district can still dress up a classmate as Santa Glaus for a fund raiser Jewish mothers can still come to school to teach students about Hanukkah Students can still decorate a pine tree in the they call it a holiday tree not a Christmas tree Religious symbols such as Nativity scenes or the Star of David may be dis played in classrooms but only as part of an educational unit Holiday displays can remain up for no longer than 10 days Though most of its students are Christians the Wiiliamsville dis trict has a large Jewish population and many Hindu Muslim and Sikh students A year ago when guidelines were being formulated school board meet ings degenerated into shouting matches over the policy Now that the policy is in effect the debate has largely died down School officials are still fmetuning the rules but teachers parents and students so far have seen only minor changes The idea is to make the schools less oppressive to those who are not in the majority said Francis Mur phy school superintendent Why should a Muslim student coming to school 20 days before Christmas feel like an interloper in a Christian envi ronment The policy bans holiday gift exchanges in classrooms a rule that has miffed some students and parents accus tomed to trading presents for Christ mas or Hanukkah At a fourthgrade holiday party candy canes suppos edly a representation of the staffs of shepherds who flocked to Christs birth replaced by Fez candy dis pensers Weve had to put a little more thought into everything that goes on for the said Suzanne Tozer a parent who helped organize the party I have nothing against my son play ing Jingle Bells or some of the Christ mas festivities in the said Kailash Chadha a Hindu who supports the policy At the same time I dont want my children being taught Chris tianity in the classroom If youre in the minority why should you be exposed to that Troubled by such questions teach ers often leave religion out of lessons for fear they might violate Supreme Court rulings on the separation of church and state Like Wiiliamsville school boards around the country have adopted poli cies to give teachers guidelines on how to deal with religion Religion is a fact of life its a fact of our culture and I think that teaching that ignores religion is poor said Charles Kniker of the National Council on Religion and Public Educa tion The Wiiliamsville policy is intended to allow instruction about religion as a cultural influence with lessons balanced among Christianity Judaism Islam and other faiths No school system is seriously going to ban all discussion of religion That goes too far and good educators know said Robert Boston of the group Americans United for Separation of Church and State Wiiliamsville is leading the way Its a good source for model policies for other Alan Garrow a school board member who voted against the policy said the new rules have taken some of the harm less fun out of the holidays While Christmas decorations arent banned Garrow said he has seen fewer signs of the holiday around the districts 13 schools I feel our kids are being short Garrow said Religion briefs NEW YORK AP Romafl Catholic and Jewish religious lead ers have Issued a joint appeal to Americans to help prevent the spread of pornography The statement by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs and the Syn agogue Council of Americas Inter religious Affairs Committee recog nizes the constitutionally guaran teed right of freedom of But the religious leaders said they also were concerned about the alarming growth of pornography As Jews and Catholics we teach that the Creator fashioned each per son in the divine the state ment says Any material that demeans the inherent dignity of women men and children by removing sexuality from the context of meaningful interpersonal rela tionships denies the image of the Creator within all of LINCOLN Neb AP Gov Ben Nelson had a gun removed from a Christmas display that is supposed to depict what life was like in Nebraska in the late 1800s The display donated by state Sen Connie Day of Norfolk and her hus band John uses mannequins to rep resent Nelson and his wife Diane It sits on the front lawn of the gov ernors mansion The display originally included a revolver which sat on a mantel piece Nelson had the gun removed because the display is geared toward children said Shirley Hart Arthur mansion director The mechanical mannequins dressed in late 1800s clothing stand in front of a fireplace with a Christ mas tree off to one side The intent is to have a homey look of the governor and first lady sitting by the fireplace waving at the kids as they go Arthur said Edward D
