Group Names Naughty, Nice List Of Stores

Shoppers Urged To Avoid Stores That Censor Word 'Christmas'

LYNCHBURG, Va. -- A Christian advocacy group has some advice for Christians as they prepare to do their Christmas shopping: Don't shop at stores that censor the word "Christmas."
As part of its Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign, Liberty Counsel has released its fifth annual "Naughty and Nice" list of stores seeking to attract gift buyers.
The "Naughty List" names stores that make no mention of Christmas in their advertising, vaguely observing the "season" or "holiday" instead. The list includes Gap, Kohl's, Bloomingdale's and Marshalls, to name a few.
The "Nice List" consists of stores that still name the reason for the season. Some stores on that list include Macy's, Wal-Mart, Target and Toys R Us.
Both can be viewed on Liberty Counsel's Web site.
Liberty Counsel's Steve Crampton said stores have the right to advertise any way they want, but Christians have the right to shop at stores that recognize their holiday.

apparently this year christian kids will be getting the shittiest of gifts. of course the only thing crazier than stores not mentioning christmas is a christian group bitching about it. look, their not selling stuff at your church , dont bring your god to their stores.

now your even...........

In my estimation, the 'religious kooks' you refer to would have to be the fanatical extremists whose goal is to abolish a culturally significant festive tradition.

Any restriction of a religious occasion, regardless of its belief and foundation, is unconstitutional and discriminates against a citizen's right to freedom of speech and religion - or do you not live under your own Constitution?

Here in Canada, as well as in the U.S; censoring Christmas has less to do with inclusion and more to do with an agenda to again crucify an entity that many seem to feel threatened by still to this day - and maybe rightfully so.

Attempts to remove "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance, the ban on displaying plaques of the Ten Commandments, removing crosses from public venues and erecting menorahs instead, forbidding students to use the term "Christmas" in school and banning the public display of Christmas trees spells more than someone or something simply seeking recognition or equality.

It appears these zealots won't be satisfied until society totally denounces Christmas altogether and forever refers to it as a hollow and meaningless "Holiday".

To me it's encouraging to see an individual or group denounce and expose those who would attempt to control the culture and faith of others by instilling misguided fear and guilt by way of social engineering and political correctness.

So Mr. P, which "Holiday" are you celebrating Dec. 25th?
