Beta Upsilon Chi, a Christian fraternity hung a 6-foot-tall banner depicting a Christmas tree over the side of their fraternity house that read, “Come and Take It.” after the University stole Christmas.
The University of Tennessee wants students and faculty to “ensure your holiday party is not a Christmas party in disguise.”
Chancellor Jimmy Cheek has been asked to step down. Senate Education Committee Chairman Dolores Gresham (R-Somerville) and Senate Government Operations Chairman Mike Bell (R-Riceville) issued a statement Thursday calling for UT Chancellor Jimmy Cheek to step down.
The University of Tennessee’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion, (Yes, there is such a thing and it is out of control), seems to be at the center of the insanity.
The WATE Knoxville reports:
The University of Tennessee’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion is coming under fire again, this time for a list of best practices for inclusive workplace holiday celebrations that encourages people to make sure they aren’t “Christmas parties in disguise.”
“Holiday parties and celebrations should celebrate and build upon workplace relationships and team morale with no emphasis on religion or culture. Ensure your holiday party is not a Christmas party in disguise,” reads the list.
“The Office of Diversity is not welcoming to all and hostile to none as they claim,” said Sen. Gresham in the statement. “They are very hostile to students and other Tennesseans with Christian and conservative values. By placing a virtual religious test regarding holiday events at this campus, every student who is a Christian is penalized.”
These Tennessee students were supposed to remove Christmas decor from their fraternity. Instead of complying, they came up with the PERFECT response…
Come and Take It! It is high time we stood up and said ‘Come and Take It’ when the left tries to stifle free speech. Come and Take It!
These students need our support. It’s time to end the war on Christmas…
