This could be really interesting... since Rudolf Steiner believed Jesus was TWO PEOPLE not one. Yes, Christmas festivities at a Waldorf school should be very *enlightening*... so when you go there, don't forget to ask them which Jesus' birth they are celebrating. Meanwhile, read more about Waldorf education here: http://thewaldorfreview.blogspot.com/ and read about Steiner's two Jesus theory on Wikipedia. Waldorf is Christmas with a twist.

I found this:........ "Steiner’s cosmology is inherently racist and abhorrent. Black people are spiritually childish. Jews should simply ‘disappear’. Disabled people somehow must have wanted to be disabled though actions in previous lives. Steiner viewed the purpose of Anthroposophy was to prevent the human race from degenerating towards a black-brown “denseness”. In time, however, blondness will disappear because the human race is becoming weaker. In the end, only brown- and black-haired people will be able to survive if nothing is done to keep them from being bound to matter. The stronger the body’s forces, the weaker the soul’s. When fair people become extinct, the human race will face the danger of becoming dense if a spiritual science like Anthroposophy is not accepted......"-----------------------------Wow. Uh, What?
