City RENAMES Columbus Day, Good Friday To Be More 'Inclusive'

November 21, 2016Nov 21, 2016

In the eternal quest to be more inclusive, politically correct, culturally sensitive, or whatever you want to call it, the mayor of the city of Bloomington, Indiana has officially renamed Columbus Day and Good Friday.

While the memo Mayor John Hamilton sent to city employees is not a ban for all the fair denizens of the town, according to BizPacReview, it still directs how the city government will now refer to those holidays.

The mayor gleefully proclaimed, “We are terrifically proud of our diverse workforce at the city. That diversity makes us stronger and more representative of the public we proudly serve. These updated names for two days of well-merited time off is another way we can demonstrate our commitment to inclusivity.”

So what are the new names?

Spring Holiday and Fall Holiday.

Oh, good gravy.
