Why the Christian Right’s ‘Naughty or Nice’ Campaign Makes No Sense, Even for Them

Alyssa Rosenberg of Think Progress explains why the “Naughty or Nice” list put out by the Christian group American Family Association and, by extension, the “Friend or Foe” list put out by Liberty Counsel make absolutely no sense, even from a Christian perspective. (Remember: These are the lists that reward you for using the word “Christmas” in your marketing campaigns and condemn you if you don’t.)

The only stated value, in other words, is how much retailers talk about Christmas. By this metric, a porn company, or one that kills Bengladeshi child laborers it’s stolen from their families as part of its production process, could issue a statement declaring its belief that Christmas is the most important holiday of the year, slap the term “Christmas” on all of its products, and earn at least a Green rating… The AFA is ostensibly a Christian organization, but the way it determines what counts as naughty or nice rewards effectively companies for how intensely they commercialize the birth of Christ.

Yet another reason these groups ought to be reviled or ignored by Christians everywhere.
