According to Campus Reform, the University of Minnesota is trying to put the kibosh on Christmas – or any other religious celebration – on campus this holiday season.
I’m not a lawyer, but I’m pretty fucking sure that is a solid First Amendment violation. Twice, once for the “prohibiting the free exercise thereof [religion]” clause and the “abridging the freedom of speech” clause.
Back when I was in college, we had white boards and wrote messages on them. I used to post Happy Hanukkah and pass out Star of David shaped cookies.
I still pass out Star of David shaped cookies at work and do my Hanukkah decorations at my desk. I have to, I am the lone Jew at the company.
If a public school administrator tried to punish me for passing out Hanukkah cookies as a student… well… I’d welcome it actually.
First I would sue his ass for violating my religious freedoms, then I’d sue his balls for violating my freedom of speech.
The point is, there is nothing so innocent, nothing so innocuous, nothing so fun and joyous that these pricks won’t try and ban it and punish people for doing it.
They can take my blue and white frosted, Star of David sugar cookies from my cold dead hands.
All I need is the Hebrew translation for Molon Labe.
