France: Christmas movie banned in school because “too Christian”

A film about Christmas has been judged not secular enough and was therefore suspended for schools in the French city of Langon in the department of Gironde on December 13th 2017, Le Figaro reports.

83 students of a French school started to watch the movie “The Star“, a computer animated adventure comedy based on the history of Jesus nativity, film released by Columbia Pictures. But when the teachers realized that the subject was the nativity of Jesus Christ, they immediately suspended the projection because they judged the movie not enough secular.

The 83 students were obliged to go back to school without watching the end of the movie.
