Federal judge bans Indiana high school's nativity performance

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A federal judge has banned an Indiana high school's live nativity performance at Concord 

The judge says a nativity scene at Concord High School in Elkhart, Indiana, is "an endorsement of religion."

Concord Schools proposed taking the Bible-reading portion out of the show, and promised to include Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, but the judge says previous versions of the show endorsed Christianity.

Some parents at the school think the show should go on. 

"If this father and son feel offended by it, they should just not participate and not be around it," said parent Catherine Kitelinger.

Other parents chimed in on Facebook, writing, "Do it after school hours and off school grounds."
