Valentines candy 1Cupid can cross the place off his list. A Minnesota school principal, in the name of political correctness, has banned Valentine's Day.

Bruce Vento Elementary School principal Scott Masini has vetoed Valentine's Day, stating that it could threaten the culture of tolerance and respect for all, fearing students from foreign countries could be offended. (See related article)

Cultural analyst Janice Crouse says it's political correctness run amok.

"This is the United States, after all. These are the holidays that we have traditionally celebrated in this country," she shares, "and if you're a guest in this country, if you're a new resident, then you adjust to that. You don't expect that everybody else will adjust to you.

Crouse, Janice (CWA)Crouse, a former U.S. delegate to U.N. commissions concerning women and children, wonders what's next on the leftist agenda concerning other holidays.

"I wonder what's going to happen with Mother's Day and Father's Day now," she laments. "Are we going say no, it can't [be observed], that it's too gender-specific? Are we going to go so far that this most wonderful and most celebrated holiday is now no more? I can certainly see that coming down the pike."

Masini has already put a stop to Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations at the St. Paul school.

Crouse is author of the book Children at Risk.
