We've all been witness to the nuttiness that is political correctness. The examples of it are too numerous to mention. But in this particular case, I'll reference Easter. When I was in school it was called "Easter Vacation." Now they call it "Spring Break."
Taking that one step further, the city of Davenport, Iowa, removed "Good Friday" from its municipal calendar, setting off a storm of complaints. According to ABC News, the Davenport Civil Rights Commission recommended changing the name to "Spring Holiday" to better reflect the city's diversity. City Administrator Crag Malin then fired off a memo to municipal employees announcing the name change.
Fortunately, there's at least one sane man in that city. City councilman Bill Edmond said his phone was ringing off the hook from people upset because "this is nothing but political correctness run amok." Plus Edmond said Malin made the change unilaterally and never brought the issue before the city council for a vote, which is a requirement for a change in policy. Edmond said the city council was blind-sided by the change and were then left with having to, in his words, "clean this mess up." Edmond went on to say, "How do you tell people the city renamed a 2,000 year old holiday?"
Well it didn't take long for the city to bring back the name "Good Friday," as Malin was overruled.
This was a well-deserved victory for the people and for sanity for a change.
And one little added tidbit here: The Davenport Civil Rights Commission chairman, Tim Hart, in explaining the recommendation of the name change, said, "Our Constitution calls for separation of church and state." Pardon me while I scream, "NO IT DOESN"T!!!!" Did this clown ever actually read the Constitution? It guarantees FREEDOM OF RELIGION and says the government SHALL NOT ESTABLISH A RELIGION. The phrase "separation of church and state" appears nowhere in the Constitution. And every law, rule or regulation that has ever been crafted based upon that myth should be repealed today.
