Absurd: Cornell University’s Rules Force Students To Have A Politically Correct ‘Holidays’

Cornell University is making a leap into a brave new world with its new rules that ban students from having anything other than a politically correct Christmas.

Check it out:

Here’s an explanation of the ban on Christmas:

“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:

-Nativity scenes

-Menorahs

-Angels

-Mistletoe

-Stars (when placed on top of trees)

-Crosses

-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.

I don’t even think this is outrage-worthy, it’s just kinda lame and pathetic. Are our students so meek and afraid of reality that they can’t deal with mistletoe or Santa Claus?! Ridiculous.

    How is having NOTHING referring to one’s own faith “inclusive”? Furthermore, the entire point to Christmas is celebrating our Savior’s birthday. So now students are not allowed to celebrate Jesus’ birthday on Jesus’ birthday? Why bother then? If the period of time around Christmas day is just a “holiday”, then why? Why not then have the “winter holiday” in, say, mid-January?

    I’ll answer my own questions. Obviously, the “winter holiday” is Christmas, like it or not. Do the administrators at Cornell go home, not have a tree, and exchange gifts on December 25th, which is when we celebrate the birth of Jesus? If so, why? And, are the students at Cornell paying customers? I believe they are, so screw the administration and their BS rules! Do they instruct students of any other faith about how to celebrate their religious holidays? You know, other than Christians? If so, please name one. [crickets chirping]

    Christmas without Christ ( there is a reason that the first 6 letters of Christmas spell Christ..no, it is not a coincidence) would be like celebrating Martin Luther King Day without mentioning Martin Luther King…We have gone mad..I just hope that I am alive when the revolution starts…….Wolverines!!!!!

    So we are to assume others will be offended by anyone displaying their traditional holiday commemoration? A higher learning institute? But don’t we learn from each other when we share our traditions?
