The American Family Association, a media company that uses Christian branding to sell its products a fundamentalist Christian organization, has declared a boycott against PetSmart this holiday season. Why? “AFA is calling for a limited one-month boycott of PetSmart over the company’s censorship of the word “Christmas.”
Victoria’s Secret heavily promotes Christmas, but the men at the American Family Association want to see more women in skimpy outfits with Christmas themes. Why don’t they just ask nicely, rather than blabbering on about a “War On Christmas”?
