Every year, the American Patriarchy Association puts out its hit list of naughty commercial retailers: the sole criterion is whether they use the word “Christmas” in their advertizing. And it’s not how you’d think! If the business commercializes Christ and invokes Jesus’ name to get you to buy soda pop or racy lingerie, then it’s good and listed as FOR Christmas. If it uses heathenish slogans like “Happy Holidays”, then it’s wicked and offensive.
Don’t ask me to explain Christians. They’re a weird and hypocritical lot.
So anyway, here’s a poll. Apparently, the patriarchal zealots think I should boycott Barnes & Noble because the bookstore doesn’t praise Jesus enough.
No, “Happy Holidays” is inclusive of everyone’s beliefs. 54.16%
Yes, because “Jesus is the reason for the season”. 30.17%
Don’t care either way. I’m all about the sales. 15.67%
