According to the University of Tennessee’s Office of Diversity and 
Inclusion (yes, that’s a thing), college is a place to learn extreme 
political correctness 
<http://conservativetribune.com/meme-political-correctness/> and be 
systematically stripped of your values and culture.

Gee, and all this time I thought it was where you went to learn how to 
be a well-rounded, critically thinking adult. Oh, and drink beer.

ABC News 
<http://wate.com/2015/12/03/ut-diversity-office-criticized-for-inclusive-holiday-celebration-suggestions/> 
reported that UTODI has been cracking down on Christmas. Their new 
guidelines advise people to keep all parties strictly secular, with no 
decorations, Santa or Jesus to “ensure your holiday party is not a 
Christmas party in disguise.”

The guidelines include non-denominational holiday cards, strictly 
secular games (no dreidel) and non-religious refreshment (which 
precludes what, exactly?).

But the boys at Beta Upsilon Chi weren’t having it, according to WKRN 
News 
<http://wkrn.com/2015/12/05/controversy-grows-over-uts-workplace-holiday-party-suggestions/>. The 
6-foot-tall banner depicting a Christmas tree topped by a star and 
draped over the side of their fraternity house read, “Come and Take It 
<https://www.facebook.com/smokymountaingunsandammo/photos/a.771137732926730.1073741827.728782233828947/1104589286248238/?type=3>.” 
As in, “I dare you.”

The students were defending the banner to prove they mean business in 
protecting Christmas

Honestly, of all the things I might mess with, a group of military-age 
guys from Tennessee isn’t among them.

The University itself has denied the actions of the UTODI, and the 
guidelines have been removed from the website.

Some very prominent folks are putting the hammer down on this policy. 
Apparently, they know the meaning of the term “slippery slope.”

Tennessee Republican Rep. John Duncan told Fox News 
<http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2015/12/03/university-your-holiday-party-cannot-be-christmas-party-in-disguise.html?refresh=true>, “The 
people I represent are disgusted by this. People from all over the 
country are sick and tired of all this political correctness.”

The same article quoted Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey. He said students 
don’t attend college “to have their values and traditions sidelined and 
undermined.”

The point is that diversity is about inclusion, not exclusion. 
Christmas, by definition, includes Christ. And besides, there’s 
presents, and ribbons, and cakes, music, and shiny sparkly things, and 
reindeer.

And beer, of course. At least while you’re in college.

Please share on Facebook and Twitter to let people know that Christmas 
is alive and well, but we must protect it.
