Republicans threaten funding cuts after university urges leaving Christmas out of holiday celebrations

In Tennessee this holiday season, people are fighting about how to celebrate.

It started when the University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s office of diversity and inclusion posted a message advising employees to avoid “an emphasis on religion or culture” at holiday parties.

No Secret Santa gift swaps, it advised. No dreidels.

“Ensure your holiday party is not a Christmas party in disguise,” the message read.

Lawmakers responded with outrage, some after hearing it on Fox News — with threats to cut funding for the state’s flagship public institution, and calls for the chancellor to resign.

On Tuesday, the university announced that it had scrubbed the message to better reflect its intention, “counseled” the chief officer of diversity of inclusion, and given oversight of the office’s website to a university public-relations executive.

It was the latest sign of an increasingly heated culture clash playing out in many places, as the language and values on campus astonished outsiders.

University officials noted in a news release Tuesday that they had received warm support from the campus community. Some students and others posted messages on social media supporting the chancellor.

The faculty senate held an emergency session Tuesday and voted in support of a resolution strongly supporting the constitutional principle of not upholding one religion over another, and the academic freedom for all students and others to express their beliefs. They also passed a resolution “against undue influence on the University of Tennessee,” objecting to the idea of politicians trying to bypass the board of trustees’ role in directing the school.

But for many lawmakers, the idea of banning Christmas or Hanukkah from holiday celebrations was absurd and offensive — an example of cultural sensitivity so sensitive that their own cultures were pointedly excluded.

Several Republican state leaders called for Chancellor Jimmy Cheek to resign.

The chairs of the Senate education and government operations committees, Dolores Gresham and Mike Bell, said the message was offensive to the vast majority of Tennesseans who support the public university with their tax dollars, and that they had lost confidence in Cheek.
