grinchOne moment while we beat our heads against a wall. Are you kidding?! In a liberal world, why not? Anything that has Christianity behind it, no matter how slight, should be under attack. Are you outraged by this or just plain sick of it?

 Officials in a taxpayer-funded suburban Portland school district have banned Santa Claus — and, it seems, any trace of the celebration of Christmas — because “images and artifacts” “like Santa Claus” create insufficiently “inclusive and welcoming spaces.”

The Hillsboro, Oregon school district is the home of the ban on Santa and Christmas, reports Portland NBC affiliate KGW.

Hillsboro school district human resources director Kona Lew-Williams recently sent the 282-word memo to school employees.

“In the past, the Human Resources Department has sponsored a holiday door decorating contest in an effort to promote teambuilding and celebrate the season,” Lew-Williams begins.

However, an unspecified number of unnamed people “have shared concerns about not feeling welcome at the Administration Center due to the images and artifacts present in our spaces,” Lew-Williams then explains.

As a result, everyone will now have to suffer. There will be no door-decorating contest in the Hillsboro school district this year “in an effort to honor the multilingual and multicultural community.”

“You may still decorate your door or office if you like, but we ask that you be respectful and sensitive to the diverse perspectives and beliefs of our community and refrain from using religious-themed decorations or images like Santa Claus,” the human resources director pontificates.
