Colleges Crack Down on “Inappropriate” Religious Christmas Displays

Colleges Crack Down on “Inappropriate” Religious Christmas Displays

Bah humbug.

The annual War on Christmas is getting started right on time at some American colleges and universities.

Campus Reform reports:

No ‘religious icons’ during Christmas, colleges tell students

With Christmas approaching, universities are cracking down on potentially offensive religious decorations, all but banning displays of the “Nativity Scene” and images of the “crucifixion.”

At Missouri State University, for example, a list of “holiday decoration guidelines” warns that it would “generally be inappropriate” to display items such as “a cross,” “drawings of Jesus or Mohammed,” “the Nativity Scene,” and “the Bible or Koran” in common areas of the university.

nstead, Missouri State suggests displaying secular seasonal decorations, recommending non-descript “greenery” or simply some generic “winter scenes” (which could include images of “bells” or “flowers”). The document also clears wreaths, snowmen, and Santa Claus as acceptable decor for public spaces, and graciously acknowledges that “faculty and staff may place holiday material (secular or sacred) within their personal space and personal offices.”

Similarly, the College at Brockport, State University of New York encourages students and faculty members to select “culturally sensitive holiday decorations” that are “general and non-specific 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 suggest, adding that academic departments should “consider a grab bag instead of a ‘Secret Santa’ gift exchange.”

Man I wish I were a hacker, I would put the picture above on every computer on both campuses.

Nothing but the Secular religion is allowed, Christianity is pretty much illegal in the US and is continuing on the track of making the announcement obvious. Only the Godless commit genocides, only the Godless can destroy nations.

Sounds like you must give up your religion to attend. That’s what Clinton was telling us about religion as well.

What’s next? Wintermas, Santamas, bellsmas? What utter rot!
