Skip to comments.AFA publishes annual "naughty/nice" list--companies hostile to Christmas
Posted on 11/19/2012 11:08:47 AM PST by Gopher Broke
As the Christmas shopping season begins full swing, AFA has prepared its annual "Naughty or Nice" retailer list.
We have taken the top 100 national retailers and reviewed their websites, media advertising and in-store signage in an effort to help you know which companies are Christmas-friendly.
Over the past seven years, your AFA has stood firm in the "War on Christmas." Companies who used to refuse to acknowledge Christmas now have Christmas "shops" inside their stores. Many of them now liberally use "Christmas" in their advertising and in-store signage. Sadly, there are still some companies which refuse to use "Christmas." They continue to insult and offend Christian shoppers by sticking with their politically correct "holiday" term.
Check out the list here:
Companies to AVOID:
Companies AGAINST “Christmas”
Barnes & Noble
All of these stores are owned by the same parent company
VS is owne dby Limited Brands
JC Penney wants you to have a very gay, gay, gay Christmas
I am so sick of this.
There are multiple holidays and the use of the phrase “Happy Holidays” is not necessarily anti-Christmas. On this particular issue I part company with the AFA. I think their stance on this issue is divisive and makes Christians look petty and ignorant.
Hannukah is a legitimate holiday that involves the giving of gifts too.
This Christian has no problem with “Happy Holidays”.
I demand that people wish me “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays” while I’m busy wasting money subverting the true meaning of the holiday!!! (/sarc)
I too do not have a problem with Happy Holidays --- I believe it was derived from Happy Holy Days, but I could be wrong.
What I have a problem with really is when they are 100% against Christmas, or Hannukah, etc. And want to have whatever they want at the expense of what I want. That is what irks me.
I have Jewish friends that wish me a Merry Christmas and I will them a Happy Hannukah. I could easily wish them Happy Holidays as their holiday is a Holy Day for them.
Agreed. This Christian has no problems with wishing folks happy holidays. I am reluctant myself to wish folks a Merry Christmas if I don’t know that they celebrate. Saying “Happy Holidays” is not anti-Christmas or anti-Christian. I do wish everybody in this country and the world did celebrate Christmas.
where else to get the gay apparel? (badoom tish)
Yes, the word "holiday" is derived from "Holy Day" from medieval times.
We were in Target a few weeks ago, and as we walked into the store, I noticed a big Merry Christmas garland hung from the ceiling. It is no ordinary Merry Christmas! It is RAINBOW colored. And I was there again yesterday, and I looked toward the back of the store where the Christmas decorations are located. The Christmas tree displays are RAINBOW decorated.
lol. good one
