3. Bing Crosby started this nefarious trend with his "Happy Holidays" song.

And as far as the his "White Christmas" agenda goes, I think we are much more inclusive nation these days.

4. everybody email them, rat out Chick fil A

demand they put Chick fil A in the "Companies against Christmas" column!

here is their email address christmas@afa.net.

and here is the damning (literally!) evidence!


http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/chick-fil-a-declares-war-on-christmas

As Jeremy Hooper noted yesterday, it appears that the Religious Right’s most beloved fast food chain, Chick-fil-A, has indeed declared war on Christmas.In their horrific assault on Christmas, the company released a statement celebrating the “holiday season” that doesn’t once include the word “Christmas” and also pushed out a press release about “holiday gift giving,” again failing to mention “Christmas.” Even their online ads are clear affronts to Christmas!

We will wait to see whether LC or the AFA decide to be consistent with their boycott calls and paint Chick-fil-A as the season’s latest Grinch, but we won’t hold our breath, especially since Newt Gingrich, a proud foot soldier in the “War on Christmas,” escaped judgment when his company Gingrich Productions declared war on Christmas, and both LC chairman Mat Staver and AFA founder Don Wildmon endorsed him.

6. LOL! Site claims that Radio Shack and LL Bean are against Christmas.

I cant think of two corproations that are more closely associated with the holiday.

Everyone buys batteries and wool scarves on Christmas.

Whatta joke.

7. I'm still trying to figure out their "logic" here.

So, if a company doesn't advertise Christmas as materialistically as possible, then they are "censoring" Christmas?
