    Town Renames "Good Friday" for the sake of "Cultural Sensitivity"

    Whenever you hear a liberal talking about cultural diversity and sensitivity it normally means something insensitive is about to happen to Christians.

    The latest case in point: Bloomington, Indiana - the home of Indiana University and a nesting place for a gaggle of intolerant liberals.

    Mayor John Hamilton recently announced that are renaming two paid holidays for city workers -- in an effort to respect "differing cultures."

    Columbus Day will henceforth be known as "Fall Holiday" and Good Friday will be known as "Spring Holiday."

    Should have named it Sharia Law Day and they would have received nationwide accolades from the leftists.

    I'm sorry you've been triggered by people who aren't respecting your religion. Would you like for us to make you a safespace so you don't have to hear people say "fall holiday" and "spring holiday"?
    "The question is whether privileged elites should dominate mass-communication and should use this power, as they tell us they must [to] manipulate and deceive the 'stupid majority', and remove them from the public arena. The question, in brief, is whether Democracy and Freedom are values to be preserved or threats to be avoided." --Chomsky

    Personally I would say that sounds like a real affront to Christians.

    I don't imagine people that demanded the change were triggered anything.

    You know, with the whole freak out about Columbus being an asshole and all. OMG, he was an asshole! Why is a holiday named after an asshole!

    Does anyone get either of these days off?

    Other than maybe under contracts which allow Good Friday off as a religious observance?

    If not, I don't see why it would be important for this little town to "rename" them. Or conversely, at least in the case of Columbus Day, why re-naming it locally would be an offense to anyone other than maybe the Italian-American community.

    Not like it's going to affect any calendar purchases.

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Nonsense. Changing the names of holidays that we've celebrated for hundreds of years is actually the egregious act here, not Mickey's disapproval of it. The "triggered" ones are those that get bent out of shape over holidays like Columbus Day & Good Friday in the first place. We usually use the word 'triggered' to describe weepy SJW types. Unfortunately, those kind of people are now running many school districts, some are even portraying Islam in a glowing light to students, while only pointing out negative things about Christians.

    IMO, its just a way of people today seeking to break from the ways, traditions of the nation.

    we have people who want to remake society today distance from society which came before them

    How, exactly, is good friday more offensive (less inclusive?) than Christmas? If you are honest about removing religious connotations then go whole hog and rename Christmas first. Actually, even holiday (holy day?) could be quite offensive to the extremely non-religious. So let's change that to Special Day (capitalized to show that it is a super-duper special day but whiie never saying why).

    Seasons are just too limited, since there are only four of them and we like our ten federal Special Days, so let's use the Julian date to identify when these Special Days occur in that year and adopt the Special Day jjj format. For 2017 we have Special Day 001 (new year's day really), Special Day 002 (new year's day obsreved), Special Day 016 (MLK Jr. day), Special Day 051 (presidents' day) and etc.
