Random act of culture

I saw this video on American Thinker:

The saddest thing was from the commentary:

Drawing on the genius and power of the best of our civilization, this kind of demonstration can't be easily savaged by judicial tyrants. The Messiah is, after all, a cultural touchstone. Unfortunately for the miserable zealots who can't tolerate religious expression, it also unabashedly praises the Christian God.

Is there a clearer sign of our slide into barbarism than the idea that a public performance of one of the greatest works of our culture borders on sedition? Yet it's impossible to watch the video and not wonder how the organizers got away with it.

How indeed?

This is happening all over the Northern Hemisphere in Canada and the US. How much longer will it be tolerated?
