Banning the Holidays

November 27, 2008 | NeW Staff

What will the gatekeepers of political correctness come up with next? At Florida Gulf Coast University in Ft. Myers, the administration has limited the holiday décor this season.  I am perplexed as to how having red and green ribbon and a few Christmas trees can be offensive.  The President of the university stated,

“Public institutions, including FGCU, often struggle with how best to observe the season in ways that honor and respect all traditions.” 

At a public university, striving for this balance is understandable, but really, prohibiting festive cheer?  I am unsure of how excluding Santa from the campus will eliminate and correct issues of prejudice and injustice from occurring. Just another example of how being politically correct has come to dominate our culture and our universities in particular.
