AFA and the Art of the Boycott

You have to admire the American Family Association’s commitment to boycotting in general and, more specifically, its yearly tradition of boycotting retailers who don’t use the phrase “Merry Christmas”? 

This year, the AFA is getting an early start in preparing to launch a massive boycott this holiday season … once it can settle on a target:

Christians celebrate Christmas as the birthday of Christ. It’s a federal holiday and has always held a special place in the hearts of Americans. Yet there are those companies which feel that a public recognition of the birthday of Christ is not appropriate. Why? Because a few people may be offended!

In early November, AFA will choose at least one national retailer and ask you to boycott it until it begins recognizing Christmas in its “holiday” advertising. Will you let us know you will support our efforts by participating in the boycott?

Would you be willing to boycott retailers which refuse to allow the word Christmas to be displayed in their stores?

AFA may not know who it is going to be boycotting but, by God, they are going to boycott someone!
