|"Federal" does not mean "religious."|
Anyway, the American Family Association, dedicated to shoving their religion down everyone's throat because it is the Christian thing to do (not!) each year makes a list of "naughty and "nice" stores to shop. No, this is not about safe places for your kids, it is all about whether they are Christmassy enough. Their criteria is "... [the] AFA reviewed up to four areas to determine if a company was 'Christmas-friendly' in their advertising: print media (newspaper inserts), broadcast media (radio/television), website and/or personal visits to the store. If a company's ad has references to items associated with Christmas (trees, wreaths, lights, etc.), it was considered as an attempt to reach 'Christmas' shoppers. If a company has items associated with Christmas, but did not use the word 'Christmas,' then the company is considered as censoring 'Christmas.'"
Yep. Even if you have hanukkah decorations, or other holiday material, and Christians are only part of your choppers, if you say "holiday" instead of "Christmas" you are nothing but an anti-Christian heathen who wants to destroy Christmas. This is America folks. Give me merry Christmas or give me death!
The list of naughty companies follows. Please, if you need a gift they have get it from them. Also, the AFA wants their people to call an complain that they do not like the companies. They will only hear from them. Please contact them on Facebook or however and say you appreciate their inclusiveness. Because that is what Christmas is really about, no matter what your religious beliefs are.
