The war against Christmas is already in full swing as stores across the nation try to cancel the holiday’s proper Christian and American roots as they seek to sell their wares to holiday shoppers.
The Liberty Counsel recently released its annual “Naughty and Nice Retail List” detailing the store chains that are trying to divorce Christmas from its meaning to appease the woke gods. The list sets out to “recognize and celebrate Christmas” or “silence and censor Christmas.”
Per the Christian Post:
According to the list, Target is “naughty” because the retail corporation “has surprisingly few mentions of ‘Christmas,’” though it does have “references to ‘pack your season full of merry’ and offers ‘seasonal ugly sweaters’ and a ‘secret gifting room.’”take our poll - story continues below
The pharmacy chain Walgreens “refers to the term ‘holiday’ frequently and only one reference to the term ‘Christmas’ on the website.”
Meanwhile, Gap has “no references to ‘Christmas’ or any biblical elements within product associations and advertisements.”
Other companies joining the war on Christmas include:
- Academy Sports + Outdoors
- Barnes & Noble
- Burlington Coat Factory
- Dick’s Sporting Goods
- J. Crew Outfitters
- The Limited
- The Loft
- Lord and Taylor
- Rite Aid Pharmacy
- TJ Maxx
“Each year, we begin with the prior year’s list and then modify it as the Christmas season progresses,” Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Stave explained. “Consumers are encouraged to communicate with the retailers their matters of concern or compliments.”
The stores that are honoring Christmas this year include, Walmart, Sears, JC Penny, Nordstrom, Bath & Body Works, Macy’s, Lowe’s, Kmart, The Home Depot, Hobby Lobby, Bealls, Best Buy, Kohl’s, Loews, and Belk.
“Censoring Christmas during the Christmas season sends a terrible message that Christian viewpoints are unwelcome and must be excluded from the marketplace. The Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign is designed with the goal of stopping the censorship of Christmas,” Liberty Counsel says.
