dailycaller.com James Madison University (JMU), a public university in Virginia, banned a student group from singing a religiously-themed Christmas carol but then allowed a Jewish group to publicly light a giant menorah. Last Friday, JMU rang in the holiday period by holding a ceremony to celebrate the lightning of a “unity tree,” so named to avoid saying the word Christmas. All of the school’s singing groups were invited to perform at the ceremony, including a Christian group named Into Hymn. According to The Breeze, Into Hymn wanted to perform the song “Mary, Did You Know?” but was shot down because the song is Christian in nature.
