The American Family Association is at it again. Having bullied corporate retail chains across the country into inserting Christmas references into pet supply circulars and advertisements for drywall, the AFA is pushing the same chains to place even more references to Baby Jesus. Sending a new set of ratings to its diminishing band of followers, the AFA is attacking the following corporations as “Marginal on Christmas”:
Bath & Body Works
Why? Because they don’t mention the Baby Jesus holiday in their advertisements? No. The American Family Association is attacking these corporations because they don’t mention the Baby Jesus in each and every one of their advertisements. And the following corporations are attacked as actively “Against Christmas”:
Barnes & Noble
Why? Because they don’t include “Christmas” in their advertisements? No. These corporations do feature the word “Christmas” in their advertisements. The American Family Association says the corporations are against Christmas because they advertise particular products using the word “Christmas,” but don’t have a separate banner in their advertisements that also uses the word.
Really, it’s come to that.
