Posted on 12/20/2007 5:29:16 PM PST by Clintonfatigued
Weatherford, OK Southwestern Oklahoma State University (SWOSU), has issued a disturbing policy which requires all employees to refrain from using the word "Christmas" in oral or written form. This directive was given by the university upon legal advice of the Oklahoma Attorney General, W.A. Drew Edmondson. Liberty Counsel sent a demand letter to SWOSU following a complaint from a university affiliate.
John Misak, the Director of Human Resources, recently visited various university departments and employee groups and informed everyone that any decorations featuring the word "Christmas" in any work or public areas of the university must be immediately removed. He also instructed everyone to discontinue the use of the term "Christmas" in their speech while on the job. This censorship specifically includes exchanging greetings of "Merry Christmas" among employees or with nonemployees, whether initiated by a nonuniversity employee or not. Christmas remains a legal holiday for state employees, including those at SWOSU. The directive does not include any other legal holidays such as Thanksgiving or New Years.

I never would have expected this in Oklahoma.

It may be getting time for a insurrection. The worthless vermin who sue these places and the spineless morons who go along with this PC crap need to find another country to live in
Actually, we should go after (through boycotts) those who fund those organizations.
I’d much prefer tar and feathering and deportation.
"Oh Great Over-Arching Legal Authority....
Grant us Thy Peace.......if You're There"
Is the pot beginning to boil,,,?
I would start by printing up about a bajillion cards that say MERRY CHRISTMAS and paste them all over the friggan place.
Then I’d spray paint it on every gull dang lawn on campus I could find.
I’d be tempted to catch the bums who issued this and paint it on their person also.
Time for a massive mailing of Christmas cards to the Director of Human Resources!
I’m not sure of the validity of this. I called their office today and was wished a Merry Christmas after venting for about a minute.
The secretary informed me this was only a rumor. I can not confirm or deny. I do know they were super nice and the person I talked with had no “issue” with the words Merry Christmas.
Except when you consider that Atta & Co. and that converted wacko who was going to blow up the stadium attended and/or had close connections to OU.
WTH is going on in my state!
When will America wake up to the fact there is an all-out assault on Christianity here? There is not a faith in America that is so villified as Christianity. And, you know what? We allow it to happen! We don’t bat an eye! Unless we take a stand, and fight this insidious attack on our beliefs, we will “reap the whirlwind.”
The only reason the ACLU and cohorts were successful was by intimidation = little towns didn't want to incur legal fees by fighting them.
However, those that did - WON.
Someone needs to give the powers that be in this case a heads up = a legal heads up and everyone needs to threaten to sue if their legal right to display and say Christmas are interfered with .
Time to goose that gander
Merry Christmas, Southwestern Oklahoma State University.
