Actor and evangelist Kirk Cameron argued this week that a Maryland school board was wrong to remove Christian holidays from the vacation calendar because “education is inherently religious.”
Late last week, the conservative Education Action Group blamed Muslim parents for the board’s decision to remove all religious holidays rather than including one day from Ramadan on its schedule.
“Look, it’s Washington, D.C.,” Cameron told the hosts of Fox & Friends on Thursday. “I mean, we already know that this city had a reputation of being godless. And so, I think it makes sense to most Americans that if they’re going to take Christmas off the calendar, well, if the Grinch showed up actually in a city, it would probably be that city.”
The Christian actor insisted that Americans in the “heartland” still celebrated Christmas: “We give [our kids] presents and we say, ‘Merry Christmas.'”
“What do you think about the minority affecting the majority?” Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt wondered.
“Well, we’re talking about education, and I think problem is that education is inherently religious,” Cameron explained. “What is an education that doesn’t address ultimate questions like, who are we? Why are we here? What’s the meaning of life?”
“And so, if you try to pull religion or faith out of schools, you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place.”
In the end, Cameron said that he believed that “private education” was the only solution for America’s children.

‘They share staff with the Kremlin’: Maddow roasts Trump’s new favorite right-wing network OANN
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow roasted One America News Network (OANN) for employing a Kremlin operative to report on United States politics.
"If the Fox News channel is insufficiently pro-Trump for you, you may or may not know there is another boutique little news outlet that is designed specifically for Trump megafans called One America, One America News Network," she explained.
"The Trump White House gave this boutique outfit a hard pass for access to the White House grounds and a permanent seat in the White House briefing room -- remember when the White House used to hold press briefings? They had a seat," she continued.
