Hospital Scraps Christmas Eve as Paid Holiday, Replaces It with Juneteenth

A Georgia hospital has announced that it is scrapping Christmas Eve as a paid holiday for workers and will be replacing the Christian day with Juneteenth.

Emory Healthcare will be sacrificing traditional Christian values to instead, promote the new “woke” god of “diversity, equity, and inclusion.”

Hospital officials revealed that beginning in 2024, Juneteenth will replace Christmas Eve as a paid holiday, The Washington Free Beacon reported.

In an email to hospital system employees, Emory Healthcare CEO Joon Sup Lee touted the move as offering “more opportunities for celebration, reflection, and education.”

Lee also assured workers that, while the hospital was snubbing their religion and forcing them to work through a Christian holiday, they will be contributing to the “woke” DEI agenda.

He wrote that “diversity, equity, and inclusion at Emory Healthcare (EHC) is about creating an environment of true belonging for our patients and team members while ensuring equitable outcomes for all.”

Religious freedom, particularly that of Christians, has become a target for the “woke mind virus” that has thoroughly consumed corporate America.

In large U.S. organizations everywhere, administrators now use wokeness as a substitute for serious thought.

Lee’s nauseating email reads like a corporate template.

Meanwhile, employees in Georgia’s largest healthcare system greeted the change with dismay.

However, few would dare speak on the record in the era of cancel mobs.

According to WANF-TV in Atlanta, a number of employees expressed their disappointment on condition of anonymity.

“You can’t replace one for the other,” one healthcare provider reportedly told the outlet.

“It’s completely inappropriate.

“It’s essentially pitting a Christian holiday against something that’s to be celebratory for everyone – but specifically for our black colleagues.”

Another employee saw irony in the change.

“Something that should be an extremely joyful and collective celebration has become another reminder of how our black colleagues can’t have anything without sacrifice,” the person said.

“This is not what we have been pushing for.

“We thought Juneteenth was being added to the holiday calendar.”

Even radical NAACP DeKalb County President Edwina Clanton expressed regret over the change.

“I don’t understand, why they can’t do both,” Clanton said, according to WANF.

“I’m sure it will put anger in some hearts,” she said.

“Why do we have to do this?

“Why can’t we have our old holidays off?

“Some more consideration, even asking the employees which days you want to give up, that may have worked better.”

Emory officials said they made the swap rather than add a new holiday because they did not want to inconvenience patients.

“For each observed holiday, our clinics and business offices close, which means our patients are unable to make clinic appointments for those days,” Lee told employees.

Beginning next year, employees must use paid time off for Christmas Eve.

At a minimum, choosing Juneteenth over Christmas Eve will cause hard feelings among Christians, as Clanton and the employees noted.
