UK Gov’t Bans the ‘Offensive’ Term ‘Christmas’ (Yes, Really)

Fact checked
UK Gov't bans the word 'Christmas' due to it offending minorities

The UK government banned the word “Christmas” from being used in a campaign over fears it would offend minorities.

No, this is NOT satire.

Civil servants wanted to use the word “Christmas” as part of a COVID-19 campaign aimed at students that was originally called “Don’t take COVID home for Christmas.”

However, the phrasing was banned by senior government officials who worried it would upset non-Christians.

“We have been advised by Cabinet Office that we should not use the word Christmas – as the Government campaign needs to be inclusive and some religions don’t celebrate Christmas,” an email seen by The Mail on Sunday stated. “The other option was ‘festive season’ which keeps the emotional motivation.”

“We have gone with ‘Don’t take COVID-19 home for the holidays,” they subsequently decided, despite another official pointing out that calling Christmas “holidays” was an “Americanism.”

Summit.news reports: Conservative MP Saqib Bhatti rubbished the idea that the government should be pandering to people who are so easily offended.

“As a Muslim, I find it ridiculous we can’t enjoy this special time of year. I look forward to showing my new son his first Christmas tree. The idea you can’t mention Christmas is completely ridiculous,” Bhatti said.

“I’m proud of that and proud to celebrate Christmas. The Blob needs to stop waging war on Christmas and get on with delivering for the British people,” he added.

Leftists have long declared claims about a politically correct “war on Christmas” to be a right-wing myth, although innumerable examples crop up every single year.

As in previous years, Christmas TV commercials in the UK this year are top heavy on “diversity,” with virtually no focus on Christian themes.

  1. That’s right I realised about 1985 that England is the centre of Satanism really With craft Satanism all that Aleister Crowley, the self described wickedeat man to live who really took Satanism public was if course, English Mick Jagger wrote Sympathy for Satan and described QE2 as Queen of the witches Every Beltane they still light the bonfire at Windsor or Balmoral that has been the pagan ritual for thousands of years And I told you how London was decorated last Xmas with the closest things to the Bible being the false prophets, the angels of light on Regent Street. In your face too. “England’s green and Satanic shores” Dusrt Springfield And the Archbishops really a Druid Anyone whose read the Bible knows he couldn’t really be Christian and if you need more just go and listen to first televised Xmas message by the Queen in 1954 Listen for the Christian message from the iffucialmHeadcifcrhecCgurch of the England and the Defender of the Faith. Listen really really hard.

      • In officially 20 April 1966 California legalised Satan. Made him a lawful entity The law us that no fictitious thing can be lawful so acknowledged, the california parliament legislators lawyers judges bureaucrats advisors etc that rbry accepted Satan as a real person. Sharon Tate flew to England to make the Eye of Satan, her first major movie, and so met and then married Roman Polanski who directed it That’s what made them both famous Satanism.”people don’t understand, Satan is beautiful” Sharon Tate. It was like that for the in crowd Still is. Secretly.

        • 30 April, beltane the witches Sabbath,their resting day the holiest night of the year pre Christianity, Walpurgus Nacht the Catholics called it to disguise. After St Walpurgis.. May 1st is mayday when all the evil spirits are allowed freedom for the day.

      • I just thought the similarity was humorous. I’m all for saying “Merry Christmas!” and I respect Chanukka also, because as a Christian the account of the Maccabees is part of my spiritual history, too. I don’t believe in Ramadan, and Easter is equally if not more meaningful than Christmas. But we should respect the Muslims’ right to believe what they choose to believe, even if we know they’re wrong.

      • I just thought the similarity was humorous. I’m all for rightly celebrating and saying “Merry Christmas!” and I respect Chanukka also, because as a Christian the account of the Maccabees is part of my spiritual history (and Jesus celebrated it: John 10:22-23). I don’t believe in Ramadan, and Easter is equally if not more meaningful than Christmas.

        • The EU has already had to retreat on this idea .
          This Year .

          Uncle Georgie will not let the feelings of his protegees to be hurt again . . .

          The Muslims can believe in whatever they like and can celebrate whatever they want but CANNOT BAN us to celebrate OUR Holydays . . .
