Federal Reserve Bureaucrat Bans “Merry Christmas” from Bank

KOCO-TV reports:

Federal Reserve examiners come every four years to make sure banks are complying with a long list of regulations. The examiners came to Perkins [the town] last week. And the team from Kansas City deemed a Bible verse of the day, crosses on the teller’s counter and buttons that say “Merry Christmas, God With Us.” were inappropriate. The Bible verse of the day on the bank’s Internet site also had to be taken down. […]Specifically, the feds believed, the symbols violated the discouragement clause of Regulation B of the bank regulations. According to the clause, “…the use of words, symbols, models and other forms of communication … express, imply or suggest a discriminatory preference or policy of exclusion.”

The feds interpret that to mean, for example, a Jew or Muslin or atheist may be offended and believe they may be discriminated against at this bank. It is an appearance of discrimination.

Local residents were upset, with one woman calling it “absurd” while another man called it “ridiculous.”

The news station says the bank has contacted Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe (R) and U.S. Rep. Frank Lucas (R), as well as the Oklahoma Bankers association, for help.

Most grade schools do not produce this level of foolishness. Indeed this form of stupidity is learned at one place, radicalized public universities.

So both Oklahoma Senators wrote a letter to the Federal Reserve and with a new Tea Party controlled House with Ron Paul as the chair of the Banking Committee this was going to mean bad news. The Federal Reserve reversed the order.  Perhaps said pinhead bureaucrats should be made to attend Justice Scalia’s upcoming classes on the Constitution as said pinheads are obviously in dire need of a refresher, but then again so are many public universities.

Here is the letter:
