This is from Paul Rolly‘s column in the Salt Lake Tribune:
Administrators at Muir Elementary in Bountiful [Utah] usually use the school’s e-mail system to notify parents about student achievement, PTA bake sales and upcoming events.
But Principal Kevin Prusse recently used the school system to warn parents: Beware the anti-Narnia.
Prusse alerted parents about the upcoming movie, “The Golden Compass,” starring Nicole Kidman. The movie is based on the first of a series of children’s books about killing God written by an avowed atheist, the principal said in the school e-mail.
The district’s spokesperson, Chris Williams, had this to say:
“The movie allegedly is anti-God. I have no idea if that’s the case”…
Williams says Prusse felt like he was trying to protect his students, but abused his e-mail privileges. “He acknowledges that he will not use our district e-mail system again to send this sort of information,” Williams said.
You know what would help this school refocus on things that really matter?
