Focus on Family exposes retailers who stand against Christmas tradition

Despite earning billions of dollars during Christmas, many retailers are opposed to mentioning the word "Christmas."

What an irony.

Focus on the Family has released a "naughty or nice" list of Christmas-friendly retailers.

Those retailers who aren't afraid of the word "Christmas" are:

Cabela's, Crate&Barrel, Dillard's, Eddie Bauer, JCPenney, Kohl's, L.L.Bean, Lands' End, Linens 'n Things, Lowe's, Macy's, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Pier 1 Imports, Sears, The Home Depot, Target and Wal-Mart.

"Christmas-negligent" retailers, those who have marginal use of "Christmas" include:

Barnes & Noble, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Best Buy, Borders, Circuit City, Dick's Sporting Goods, GAP, KB Toys, Kmart and Toys "R" Us

Those who have completely abandoned "Christmas" are:

American Eagle, Banana Republic, Bloomingdale's, Lane Bryant and Old Navy

We here understand the crass commercialization of Christmas -- but we also enourage the honest acknowledgement of our cultural and foundational roots in this nation. And those roots include "Christmas" . What do you think? Add your comment below.

I stand for Christmas

Focus on the family has developed a petition that you can use to give to your local retailer, telling them that you stand for Christmas and ask them to not back down to secularism.

"There is a larger movement to purge Christian references from the public square. Many retailers are quite willing to take money from Christians but refuse to even acknowledge the Christian basis for Christmas!" the article says. "With more than 90 percent of Americans believing in and celebrating "Christmas," we believe it is time for the secularization of Christmas to end."

Here we go again

The wonderful little town of Golden, CO, (home of Molson-Coors Brewing) has decided to wage war against Christmas -- and our Society is discouraged.

It all started with a Jewish rabbi who wanted to place a Menorah on the city property to compliment a Christmas tree. We have no issue with that -- equality is what we are all about. Rather than accomodate him, the Golden City Council decided that it was no longer a Christmas tree -- it was a holiday tree.

On top of that, they also proposed a policy to elminate all other religious symbols and simply have winter symbols. Penguins are in. Stars are out. The trees will still be lit, but don't read too much into that. They're just trees with lights on them.
We say "hooey."

Let the rabbi have his Menorah. Or maybe you can just call it a "candlabra" and let it go at that.

This craziness must stop.

It's a war

Some don't understand that is a battle for our intentity. This is who we are as a people. Inclusiveness doesnt mean that we have to exclude.
