    I don't understand what the problem is with keeping their names as Good Friday and Columbus Day.

    Or is it just that a "gaggle of intolerant liberals" feels the need to pointlessly boss all the rest of us about?

    Because if that' s the case, that "gaggle of intolerant liberals" can just go **** off.

    Volunteering to redefine / define away their own society and culture, I guess they're not that interested in it, but there are other that are.

    Can't I just flip that around? How come we have to stick with whatever culture you like best?

    Come to think of it, just what is your interest in celebrating a man like Columbus? Even the "discovering America" stuff he's traditionally celebrated for is a load of crap. Dude thought he was in India. He was the world's worst navigator!

    Well, when in Rome . . . .

    Good Friday is a Christian holiday commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. The holiday is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday, and may coincide with the Jewish observance of Passover. It is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, Black Friday,[1][2][3] or Easter Friday,[4][5] though the last term properly refers to the Friday in Easter week.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Friday
    Supporting the removing of a Christian holiday then. You must be anti-Christian.
    Who says there isn't a war on Christians? Just have to look at the Religio-cide occurring in the Middle East.
    Perhaps you'd be more comfortable there?

    Columbus Day first became an official state holiday in Colorado in 1906, and became a federal holiday in the United States in 1937, though people have celebrated Columbus's voyage since the colonial period. In 1792, New York City and other U.S. cities celebrated the 300th anniversary of his landing in the New World. President Benjamin Harrison called upon the people of the United States to celebrate Columbus Day on the 400th anniversary of the event. During the four hundredth anniversary in 1892, teachers, preachers, poets and politicians used Columbus Day rituals to teach ideals of patriotism. These patriotic rituals took themes such as citizenship boundaries, the importance of loyalty to the nation, and celebrating social progress.[3][4][5]

    Supporting removing holiday in existence since 1792, and a federal holiday since 1937.

    So you'd support removing two federal holidays that have been around for a long, long time (so ones with historical precedence), at the same time claim that you aren't sacrificing the society that you claim you belong to?

    Sacrificing long held traditions on the alter of excessive PC idiocy? You are free to do so, just do it somewhere else, some other nation, and not around here.

    In the days of old before there were good instruments and good data, it doesn't matter where he though he was. What matters is that he had the courage to go beyond the existing map and push forward the boundaries of human knowledge at the time.

    Removing? What, if the government doesn't celebrate a holiday, you just stop celebrating it? Is your faith in the government or in God? Wait, but it's not even that. It's not that the government is even removing Good Friday. It's that the government is celebrating all cultures on Good Friday. Inclusion of others is removal of you, I guess.

    Who says there isn't a war on Christians? Just have to look at the Religio-cide occurring in the Middle East.

    Pathetic, even for you. You're supporting celebration of a genocidal maniac, therefore maybe you are more comfortable somewhere else.

    Again with this "removing" idea. I always love this. To Christians, you must exclusively celebrate Christianity otherwise you're attacking Christianity. To people who have been oppressing other cultures for so long, I imagine including other cultures must feel like an attack.

    Sacrificing long held traditions on the alter of excessive PC idiocy? You are free to do so, just do it somewhere else, some other nation, and not around here.
    Sacrificing tradition! Yes, because again, your religious belief just vanishes if the government doesn't tell you to be Christian, I guess.

    In the days of old before there were good instruments and good data, it doesn't matter where he though he was. What matters is that he had the courage to go beyond the existing map and push forward the boundaries of human knowledge at the time.
    And kill a bunch of people when he got there, yes. He was a **** navigator, and a murderer. Doing something brave based on a stupid idea is still stupid.

    You're demanding that the government celebrate murder. This is your standard, not mine.

    Yes, and let's call that "safe space" the United States of America.

    My organization switched to "Spring Holiday" at least eight years ago. I didn't mind at all even though I kind of regard this as a euphemism. What I always cared about was having Good Friday off one way or another because that's the one day of the year I won't work.

    Oh for Christ's sake. What's wrong with Spring, Fall, and Winter Holidays? Maybe we can change 4th of July to Mid-summer break too.

    Leif Erikson did that long before Columbus.

    As much as you would think that Is what is happening...please consider that it was named something else first...and in the name of "emotional safety" they changed the name.

    We want this day off! But don't call it this! But still give us the day off!
