Oh dear, it seems that Nanny's puritanical feelings from the sixties have been reawakened.
In the sixties, you will recall, Nanny was very upset by all that dope smoking, free love and general disrespect towards God.
I was a mere child at that time, and missed out on all the doings.
Anyhoo, in a sort of flashback, Nanny's teaching chums at St Leonards Primary in Exeter have decided that a John Lennon song ("Imagine") is anti-religious.
The pupils had spent weeks rehearsing the song for an end of term show. However, the head teacher and governors decided that it was anti-Christian and unsuitable for the school.
The dangerous lyrics include:
"Imagine there's no heaven... and no religion too."
Seems to me the world would be a much better place without religion. However, as my 3 miserable years in a Catholic school taught me I will undoubtedly burn in hell for that comment.
Head teacher Geoff Williams said a teacher approached him, because she did not think the song was appropriate.
The Rev David Harris, a school governor, said:
"The song expresses longing for a different world and for eternal happiness
but it says you can have this without religion."
I would have thought that, if God exists, he doesn't give a stuff about your religion but how you behave towards others.
That being said, what do I know?; I am going to burn in hell.
Anyhoo, "Imagine" was replaced by "The Building Song".
