Imagine There’s No Lennon
Three people have sent me this link: Church school bans Lennon classic.
A church school in Devon has withdrawn John Lennon's Imagine from an end-of-term show after teachers ruled that its lyrics were anti-religious.
Pupils at St Leonards Primary in Exeter, Devon, had spent weeks rehearsing the song. But it was taken out of the running order after the head teacher and governors decided it was anti-Christian and unsuitable for the school. The lyrics include: "Imagine there's no heaven... and no religion too."
I don't even see why this is newsworthy. It's a private school and they can do whatever they want.
