Liberty Counsel is back with its annual list of where you shouldn’t be shopping this year because some stores dare use the phrase “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” in their advertising. (I assume this list is necessary only because President-elect Donald Trump hasn’t jailed those secular blasphemers yet.)
Have fun reading the 14th annual “Naughty & Nice list.”
My favorite item on the list has to be the reference to how RadioShack is “naughty”:
There is little usage of “Christmas” and no references to Jesus, nativity, or biblical elements in products or advertising. Call 800-843-7422 to encourage Radio Shack to bring more Christmas into the season.
Can you believe it?! A place known for selling batteries and wires and other tech items isn’t referencing Jesus or the Bible in its advertising! How will we know the batteries work without God’s approval?!
I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again:
Liberty Counsel really believes Christianity is under attack every time someone says “Happy Holidays.” They don’t give a shit that there are non-Christian customers out there and they certainly don’t care that there are other holidays being celebrated this December other than Christmas. With them, you’re either Friend or Foe, Nice or Naughty, Christian or “Other.”
This list just shows that Christians like them are incapable of connecting outside their bubble. To them, everything is a theological argument, and not honoring their God is an affront to everything they stand for.
It’d be nice to see a business actively campaign to get on the Naughty list. That would mean they’re fighting to be the most inclusive, welcoming company they can be — and the folks at Liberty Counsel would surely blow a fuse because “tolerance” is a four-letter word to them.
