Play Puts Diversity Center Stage

The religion of diversity strikes again. This time in Greenwich, CT. The students at The International School at Dundee performed "The Rainbow Christmas," a play that promotes tolerance and diversity, because having a Christmas play would be far too intolerant.
In the play, the student-actors were dressed as animals and lived in the Black and White Forest. Initially, the animals segregated themselves into two groups: one for black and white animals and another for colorful animals.

Then, Santa Claus encountered the animals in the forest and told them he was discouraged by the way they had divided themselves on the basis of their colors. Santa told the animals that their skin color should not cause division among them and that they should live together in one community.

The animals agreed with Santa's message and then renamed their community The Rainbow Forest. In the play's final scene, the animals linked arms and sang "The Colors of the World Blend in Perfect Harmony."
Several of the children learned very valuable lessons from the play.
Elise Perry, a 7-year-old second-grader, said the play taught her that "no matter what color you are, you have to treat people like they treat you."
I'm not sure that was the message they were going for. That's more of the "Brass" Rule as opposed to the "Golden" Rule, but a least we know she has common sense. Maybe she won't be too tainted by her "international" education.

The play wasn't a total loss, there was some practical knowledge imparted.
Colin Kelly, also a 7-year-old second-grader, said the play taught him "to sit up straight and not to have your back to the audience." Otherwise, the audience would not have been able to hear the singing, he said.
At least it wasn't a total wash.

An off topic question if you don't mind. I'm confused to young republicans and some conservatives on the net , who support Rick Santorum,
Have you seen this?
How in the world can they justify it? I tried asking this "inflamatory" question at GayPatriot , and was summarily trounced.

I would really suggest asking someone that supports Santorum. I can't speak for anyone else. There isn't much about him that I find appealing other than he isn't a liberal.
