Why do we reward the war on common sense?
Another politically correct Christmas is upon us.
Over the weekend Roselle Park Councilwoman Charlene Storey submitted her resignation over the addition of the word "Christmas" to the borough's Christmas lighting ceremony. She said in a statement that the inclusion of this word “cuts non-Christians out of the loop on a public event” and is a violation of the oath council members took to uphold the U.S. and New Jersey Constitutions, “which forbid government to get involved in religion.”
According to Mayor Carl Hokanson, she'll now head a new committee on diversity.
Why do we reward behavior like this? You don't have to scourge every holiday from public recognition in order to make people feel included, and you ruin diversity when you do so.
Do you think Storey overacted, or was she right? Let me know in the comments section below or by tweeting @BillSpadea.
