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 storesTarget's decision "sends an unmistakable message of hostility toward people and organizations of Christian faith."
- They have implemented a nation-wide policy banning all use of "Merry Christmas" in their internal store operations and in their advertising.
"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.
