Army’s Word Police Ban ‘Christmas’ During Christmas Season

RFC Christmas StoreDuring this Christmas season, an “equal opportunity officer” with the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute has told soldiers at Camp Shelby in Mississippi that they can’t use the word “Christmas” to describe this holiday.

The incident took place two weeks ago at an equal opportunity seminar at Camp Shelby. The soldiers were discussing an upcoming Christmas football event and the Politically Correct training leader told them they couldn’t utter the word “Christmas.” Instead, they had to speak about the “holiday season” instead.

According to one soldier who was in the room: “Our equal opportunity representative stopped the briefing and told us that we can’t say Christmas. Almost the entire room blew up. Everybody was frustrated. The equal opportunity rep told our commander that not everyone celebrates Christmas and we couldn’t say Christmas celebration. It had to be holiday celebration.”

Todd Starnes reports: “The soldier said there was a brief, but heated discussion about political correctness. At one point, the equal opportunity representative tried to deflect the criticism by pointing out it was the Army’s rules – not hers. She said an individual can say Christmas, but as an organization in the Army you can’t say Christmas,” the soldier told me.”

The soldier continued: “Between the Air Force and the Army – it’s like they don’t like Christian values, they don’t like the word Christ or Christmas. They don’t like you talking about it.”

“Are they going to have the ‘Merry Christmas’ police going around issuing citations to an soldier who slips and says the word?” he wondered. “They’re treating Christmas like it’s pornography. As a matter of fact, the Army actually treats pornography better than it does Christmas.”

This is Obama’s army without a soul, an army stripped of its Judeo-Christian foundation.
