How much more of this are we going to take?
Ho, ho, nope! FGCU to limit holiday decor
Christmas is just 30 days away, but Santa Claus won't be stopping by Florida Gulf Coast University this holiday.
He's not allowed on campus.
FGCU administration has banned all holiday decorations from common spaces on campus and canceled a popular greeting card design contest, which is being replaced by an ugly sweater competition. In Griffin Hall, the university's giving tree for needy preschoolers has been transformed into a "giving garden."
The moves boil down to political correctness.
"Public institutions, including FGCU, often struggle with how best to observe the season in ways that honor and respect all traditions," President Wilson Bradshaw wrote in a memo to faculty and staff Thursday. "This is a challenging issue each year at FGCU, and 2008 is no exception. While it may appear at times that a vocal majority of opinion is the only view that is held, this is not always the case."
How's this for honoring and respecting? And these clowns are "educating" our young adults. They can't read, do math or think for themselves, but they'll be able to pontificate on how evil America and Christians are.
El Presidente Bradshaw is correct about one thing, there is a vocal majority and they are being terrorized by a minority of haters.
