Indiana Town Scratches Good Friday and Columbus Day
There should be no surprise that the march of de-Christianizing America continues. For years we have faced the push for Christians and the symbols of their faith to go undetected. We are told that we are to keep our faith to ourselves and inside us.
The stigmatizing of the Christian faith in public office has been long and brutal. People are told that they can believe what they want as long as they keep it out of public view. Now, we are told that there is no more room for two holidays because they leave some people out.
Todd Starnes reports:
Whenever you hear a liberal talking about cultural diversity and sensitivity it normally means something insensitive is about to happen to Christians.
The latest case in point: Bloomington, Indiana – the home of Indiana University and a nesting place for a gaggle of intolerant liberals.
Mayor John Hamilton recently announced that are renaming two paid holidays for city workers — in an effort to respect “differing cultures.”
Columbus Day will henceforth be known as “Fall Holiday” and Good Friday will be known as “Spring Holiday.”
The change is one that is done in the name of diversity and inclusion. In reality, it is done to push out the Christian identity of our country.
Starnes points out the truth of the situation:
And to be honest – I’ve grown weary of boorish bureaucrats trying to whitewash our faith from the public marketplace all in the name of tolerance and diversity.
They never touch the Muslim holidays, do they? When was the last time you saw a liberal lawmaker launch a crusade to rename Ramadan?
You’d have a better chance of spotting Peter Cottontail hopping down the bunny trail.
And it is evident why Christianity is the target. It is the truth that they hate and not religion.
