Southwestern Oklahoma State University Bans The Word “Christmas”

From the Liberty Counsel.

Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford has issued a disturbing directive forbidding employees to say or write the word “Christmas.” 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 the University following a complaint from a University affiliate.

The controversy began when the University’s Director of Human Resources recently visited various departments and said that decorations featuring the word “Christmas” in any areas of the University must be immediately removed.

He also instructed the employees not so say “Christmas” while on the job. As a result the employees cannot respond “Merry Christmas” to other employees or visitors to the University. Read our News Release for more details.

The University web site says “Happy Holidays” although it is adorned with red and green and decorated Christmas trees.

We need your help today!

Tell the University’s president to help save Christmas from the censors! He needs to hear from thousands of Americans who can point out the absurdity of banning the word “Christmas.” After all, Christmas is a state and federal legal holiday!
