Christmas Banned On Liberal College Campuses Across US

With classic double talk and pretzel logic, liberal universities across the US are "striving to make campuses as inclusive as possible" by banning Christmas celebrations.

With classic double talk, double standards, and pretzel logic, liberal universities across the United States are “striving to make campuses as inclusive as possible in 2017” by banning Christmas celebrations and telling Christians their traditions are offensive.

AChristians who wish to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, in line with the traditional customs of the United States of America, are not welcome on campus, according to the new guidelines issued by colleges across the country.

College Reform reports: At the University of California, Irvine, for instance, individual departments are encouraged to “focus on celebrating a special occasion, instead of a specific holiday,” suggesting that they have a “year-end celebration” or celebrate “seasonal themes such as fall, winter, or spring.”

The California university also requests that academic departments “ensure that office celebrations are not indirectly celebrating religious holidays,” suggesting that they display “diverse symbols representing a variety of faith traditions along with secular ones.”

The State University of New York, Brockport has issued similar guidance on “culturally sensitive holiday decorations,” even advising employees to “consider a grab bag instead of a ‘Secret Santa’ gift exchange.”

“Keep decorations general and nonspecific to any religion. Create a winter theme with lights and color rather than religious icons, or include decorations from all the cultural traditions represented in your department,” the guidelines add, saying the “holiday season should be considered an opportunity to demonstrate cultural sensitivity and inclusivity.”

Similarly, Ohio University put out a guide on “holiday expenditures,” noting that decorations cannot be purchased with university funds, but that any decorations “displayed in public areas” should “be secular in nature.”

The same paragraph mentions campus policy 42.501, which pertains to “the safe and appropriate use of decorations,” yet the policy contains no provisions on requiring secular-themed decorations, and the university did not respond to Campus Reform’s request for clarification.

Meanwhile, Life University is sponsoring a holiday decorating contest, but will judge participants on “inclusiveness, or how the decorations are respectful of all the religious winter holidays,” along with three other criteria.

Eastern Connecticut’s Public Liberal Arts University is offering students the chance to participate in “an inclusive holiday decorating party,” while numerous other institutions have omitted the word “Christmas” from their annual “tree lighting” ceremonies.

Among them is Mercyhurst University, a Catholic college in Pennsylvania, which refers to its celebration as the “annual holiday tree lighting.”

Not to be outdone, the University of Alabama’s student newspaper ran an editorial attacking President Trump for returning a nativity scene to the White House grounds, calling the move “disrespectful.”

“Bringing back the nativity scene is a slap in the face to the remaining religions thriving within America,” the editorial declared. “Placing the nativity scene on the grounds of the most important house in the United States is sending the message that their president forgets those who do not practice Christianity.”

    Celebrating ones own religion is not disrespectful to other religions. Stopping the celebration of Christmas is disrespectful to those who choose to celebrate it….and that my friends is not inclusive.

    Will they also be burning books from their libraries that relate to Christians or Christmas? To protect the interests of the individual, they (Christian students) should have the right to share in the celebration of Christmas, or not. To deny any celebration of Christmas suppresses the individual freedom and values of many that do wish to celebrate. My guess is that this group is also a majority of the students. Christmas is a part of Americas traditions, you cannot truly change that, no matter what measures you take. Nice try though.

    WTF? I”m not even Christian but I am offended by this. I love seeing folks celebrate Christmas and I like to celebrate it, too. It celebrates peace, love and much more. This is horrifying that they are being unconstitutional and keeping folks from celebrating their biggest and most important holiday. F them, they’re idiots and I wouldn’t want them teaching my child ANYTHING.

    At some point in time We the People get to see the Light of Truth shine upon these Liars, Cheaters and Thieves. And for those good apples who have been fighting the good fight We commend your hard work, for it is not easy to do the the work of the Lord in a World that hates Him.

    So take comfort in these times because God’s Truth is everlasting, for those who work in this darkness will soon be brought into the Light for All to see. The Lord Almighty foretold that the Holy Spirit will be sent to US, to reveal All Truths, so that his sheep will know how much He Loves US.

    We are living in these times and We rejoice in seeing His Truth being revealed unto US on a daily basis.

    I wish you all a Blessed Christ-mas
