I know one city administrator who should be fired. Not just for changing the name of “Good Friday” to “Spring Holiday” but because he clearly has no actual responsibilities to fill his day so he’s making up things to do.
One week before the most solemn day in the Christian year, the city of Davenport, Iowa removed Good Friday from its municipal calendar, setting off a storm of complaints from Christians and union members whose contracts give them that day off.
Taking a recommendation by the Davenport Civil Rights Commission to change the holiday’s name to something more ecumenical, City Administrator Craig Malin sent a memo to municipal employees announcing Good Friday would officially be known as “Spring Holiday.”
“My phone has been ringing off the hook since Saturday,” said city council alderman Bill Edmond. “People are genuinely upset because this is nothing but political correctness run amok.”
Edmond said the city administrator made the change unilaterally and did not bring it to the council for a vote, a requirement for a change in policy.
“The city council didn’t know anything about the change. We were blind sided and now we’ve got to clean this mess up. How do you tell people the city renamed a 2,000 year old holiday?” said Edmond.
You ever notice that diversity to these people always means that nobody can be different? But we all know what’s going on here. What is called political correctness is often just anti-Christian.
Think of the idiocy of this. You’re giving the day off to your workers for a reason so to deny why you’re actually giving them off is just brainless.
Make no mistake that this is where the country is heading. This guy just got a little ahead of schedule. Give it a decade pal. The rest of the secular progressives will be pushing for your brainless idea to become law soon enough.
