Mary is changed to Lucy in order not to offend non-Christians

This is in Britain where the Queen is the head of the church:

For decades, children have enjoyed singing about the little donkey which is said to have carried the pregnant Mary to Bethlehem.

But one group of young singers was ordered to change the traditional lyrics of the Christmas song - because they were said to be "too religious".

Instead of "Little donkey, carry Mary safely on her way", the youngsters were told to sing "carry Lucy" for fear of offending non-Christians. The incident, at the school's Christmas concert, appears on a new calendar alongside 11 other examples of extreme political correctness from around Britain.

OK, so let me get this straight, they don't want to offend non-Christians who are attending a Christmas concert? These people appear to be too dumb to be involved in educating children.
