What’s Christmas without Christmas?
In an unprecedented wicked move, Target has officially removed "Christmas" from Christmas.
The American Family Association (AFA) wants help from the shopping public in using this upcoming Thanksgiving holiday weekend (Nov. 25, 26 and 27) to keep sending a message to Target Stores about the national chain's faith-and-family-unfriendly practices by boycotting their stores. What has led to this?
- Target has refused to let the Salvation Army put their kettles in front of the stores
- They have implemented a nation-wide policy banning all use of "Merry Christmas" in their internal store operations and in their advertising.
Target's decision "sends an unmistakable message of hostility toward people and organizations of Christian faith."
"For more than 100 years, the Salvation Army has demonstrated itself to be a trustworthy charitable organization, yet now the retail giant, Target Corporation, has publicly questioned the Salvation Army's place in our nation's Christmas traditions."
Target wants the profits from Christian families' spending, but the retailer does not want their holiday message nor the spirit of their charities.
If Christmas has more meaning to you than just snow, join us all and Boycott Target for your shopping this holiday season.

Where are the limits? When does it become celebrating nothing but the colors red and green (soon enough these colors will become offesive too!) - because I don't understand what politically correct America is celebrating during Christmas. They mention something called holiday "spirt" but what is that supposed to mean? And why? What's the point? Oh yeah, money. Thaaat's right. But if it's only spirit (not the Holy one by the way), why not stretch it even further, like starting the "Holidays" in October and Ending in February sometime. I'm sure it will eventually. I see Christmas decorations up in October anyway, but they take them down the day after Christmas. But why right after Christmas if it's not about Christmas!!

It's like calling a menorah a candlestick. It's wrong. It's offensive. And it disenfranchises a large segment of the community.
