Concord Christmas Spectacular gets rave reviews, but not from everyone

Some people enjoyed it, others still cried foul.

Concord High School students put on their annual Christmas Spectacular over the weekend. It did feature a nativity scene with mannequins that was identical to the 2015 version, according to the Elkhart Truth.

Superintendent John Trout said “they all did an incredible job” and that it drew rave reviews from people watching it.

However, the lawyer representing a Concord student and parents who sued the school district last year over say it’s still unconstitutional. This despite a ruling from a judge that ok’ed the nativity scene as it was performed in 2015.

An attorney for the Freedom from Religion Foundation says it’s still a government endorsement of Christianity. This despite the inclusion of Kwanzaa and Hannukah to make the show more religiously diverse.

The case is still active in U.S. District Court in South Bend.
