Liberty Counsel releases it’s annual Christmas “Naughty or Nice” list


Not a Happy Holiday without a Merry Christmas 
Liberty Counsel is a non-profit litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of human life, and the family.  You can learn more about this organization here.  Every year, a few weeks before Black Friday, the group publishes a list that catalogs retailers who either censor  — by replacing the “offensive” word Christmas, with the politically correct word Holiday — or recognize Christmas, on their web-sites, in their advertising, and especially in their stores.  You can check where your favorite stores fall here.

sample excerpt: ~ Best Buy – Web site: No mention of “Christmas” on home page except one link “Guaranteed Christmas Delivery.” Consumer reports that company spokeswoman, Dawn Bryant, announced they would not use “Christmas” in advertising but Thanksgiving weekend printed an advertisement that offered a Muslim holiday greeting “Happy Eid al-Adha.” In Store: Happy Holiday sign and decorated tree.

    It shouldn’t be any company’s goal to suppress Christmas. The Naughty or Nice list is a great campaign.

  2. Steve says:

    Its interesting that a company would go as far as to remove “Christmas” from their Christmas vocabulary, but the go back in the same “religious” direction by basically replacing it with a Muslim greeting. Its perfectly reasonable for the Liberty Counsel to make this list so that those who agree with their opposition to pulling Christ out of Christmas can show it by not shopping at those stores.

    I appreciate what Liberty Counsel is trying to do here. By drawing attention to those businesses that recognize the reason for Christmas they are helping to provide rewards to them. Personally, if I’m between two companies at this time of year and one is on the nice list but the other is not, I will always take my business to the “nice” company first.

    Cry me a river. Why should a business not strive to be inclusive of all customers, rather than a single group? What harm is it possibly doing to you if a business person wishes you a happy holiday? Christians need to get over their persecution complex.

      Jenea — It’s not a “persecution complex”, it’s a nudge towards secularism. Political correctness is becoming more and more tolerated, and what one generation tolerates, the next normalizes. If a retailer sells Christmas merchandise, it shouldn’t be sheepish about the word “Christmas”. By default, aren’t the consumers who will buy that merchandise Christians?

      Ultimately, what this entire issue is about is retailers that have been bullied by smaller but louder anti-religious and specific anti-Christian groups to remove the language. The “silent majority” just sort of sat back and let it happen, like they have with so much else in the last 20-30 years, because they didn’t complain about it. In an effort to stay out of the headlines, business took the path of least resistance, and acquiessed.

      If the last year and a half has taught American society anything, it’s that the seculars have pushed the silent majority too far, and now they are pushing back.
