Apparently the students at Cornell University are so sheltered and pathetic that they can’t even deal with the sight of holiday decorations that aren’t “diverse” enough.
That is according to the instructions given out by the administration demanding that pretty much everything but a crummy tree with snowflakes be banned!!
How is it that American students are so fearful that they can’t take the very sight of a Santa Claus or a nativity scene?!
More about the ban:
“University members are reminded to be respectful of the religious diversity of our students and colleagues and are encouraged to use an inclusive approach in celebrating the holiday season,” the document says. Students are encouraged to be more “diverse” by either focusing on winter instead of Christmas or by including decorations for multiple holidays alongside secular decorations.
The university then rattles off a list of decorations that are “NOT consistent” with the school’s “commitment to diversity and inclusiveness.” The discouraged decorations include the following:
-Stars (when placed on top of trees)
-Stars of David
While the religious connotations of nativity scenes or Stars of David is rather obvious, it’s not clear why mistletoe is considered as possibly offensive.
The schools says that holly, Santa Clauses, and wreaths might be acceptable decorations, but only after “dialogue within [a] living unit or area” to ensure nobody is offended.
The War on Christmas is getting so absurd that some lawmakers are thinking about passing legislation to protect it!
I really don’t think that’s the answer though – there is a sickness in American culture if we’re so fearful of practicing the traditions that made us so prosperous and successful.
And that sickness is called liberalism.
What do you think? Does this signal the beginning of the end for Christmas in America? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!!
