    I referred in the previous post to the world's "attempting to secularize Christmas this year as never before." Perhaps the best example so far (of which I am aware) is the use of the term "holiday tree" by retailers such as Lowe's: While this picture is of a store in Texas, I know of at least one Lowe's store in Alabama that is using this term. Although I am not particularly enthusiastic about the commercialization of Christmas, this attempt by secularists to completely remove the name of Jesus from the holiday in which we remember and honor His Nativity is...

    AgapePress) - An official with a pro-family group reports that a boycott campaign aimed at Target Stores nationwide has succeeded in attracting hundreds of thousands of consumers who say they intend to shop elsewhere during what is traditionally the busiest shopping weekend of the year. On Friday (Nov. 18) the American Family Association (AFA) launched on online boycott campaign against Target, citing the retailer's decision to ban Salvation Army kettles from their store entrances as well as the use of "Merry Christmas" in their in-store promotions and retail advertising. By the following Monday, almost 300,000 individuals had "signed" an online...

    Retail giant punished for banning Salvation Army, 'Merry Christmas' A traditional-values organization is urging consumers to stay away from Target stores on Thanksgiving weekend, a heavy shopping period, as it continues to lead a boycott of the retailer. The American Family Association is asking supporters not to shop at Target due to its continuing ban on Salvation Army bell ringers outside its stores and its shunning of the phrase "Merry Christmas" in-store promotions and advertising. The most recent boycott of Target began Oct. 7, and AFA says it's beginning to affect the retailer's bottom line. "According to USA Today, Target...

    SHOP AT TARGET -- THEY SUPPORT LGBTQ FAMILIES Rainbow Law is calling for the LGBTQ community to support and shop at Target stores this holiday season. After Target refused to allow the Salvation Army to place bell-ringers and kettles at their stores (because they discriminate against the LGBTQ community), the anti-gay equality crusaders began their usual lies and propaganda campaign. There is no reason to let this attack go unchallenged. We have the power to counter the far right's relentless assault on our civil rights and liberties. And one of the most effective methods for defeating unfair practices is by...

    Saturday after Thanksgiving is the traditional day to purchase stamps for my annual Christmas card mailing... [snip] So, shortly before noon on that most recent post-turkey day, I sauntered into a neighborhood "U.S. Postal Store," [snip] and headed for the stamps-only section. I quickly found a packed wall of display racks offering a panoply of first-class postage devoted to the various elements of the year-end holiday season, specifically: 1) Christmas, featuring colorful, contemporary designs of Santa Claus with an array of inanimate, secular Yule symbols; 2) Kwanzaa, with not just one but two stamps promoting a totally fabricated "harvest holiday"...

    Just in time for Christmas, America's two largest news magazines devote this week's cover stories to debunking the story of Jesus' birth. Among the conclusions in Time and Newsweek: Jesus was born in Nazareth, not Bethlehem; there is little evidence of three kings following a star, and the story of the virgin birth may have been borrowed. "The Nativity saga is neither fully fanciful nor fully factual but a layered narrative of early tradition and enduring theology," Newsweek writes in examining the Sunday-school version of the birth of Christ. This may be unwelcome "news" to most Americans. A Newsweek poll...

    TARGET THE GRINCH:And the beat goes on... According to this morning's USA Today, Target Inc.  is sticking to its plan to kick the Salvation Army to the curb throughout this holiday season. For those of you late to this story, Target stores had long allowed the Salvation Army to be the only charity that raised funds outside their stores using their famous red kettles and the cheerful sound of Christmas Bells. This year the good will from the red bulls-eye came to an end.  According to the USA Today the impact will leave the Salvation Army short about 9 million dollars...

    San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 12/5/4 | Phillip Matier, Andrew Ross
    Two dozen San Francisco schoolkids sporting white turtlenecks and Santa hats got a very un-Christmaslike civics lesson the other day when they showed up at Union Square hoping to delight Christmas shoppers with holiday carols. "They just wanted to set up next to the Christmas tree and sing,'' said Donna Vargas, one of the parents who escorted the fifth- and sixth-graders from San Francisco Day School on Friday's outing. Instead, they got the boot. Seems they didn't have a city permit -- so after a brief run-in with the park's security, the kids were shooed away. "How can children not...

    Target stores should be ashamed. Media reports indicate that Target is now banning the Salvation Army nationwide. I read that 25% of the Salvation Army's holiday collections have come from Target stores. What a sad lack of community spirit this exhibits. On their website they state that their policy of not allowing any solicitation is to protect their customers. Well, I don't need to be protected from bell ringers. They further state that they give two million dollars a week to charities. That doesn't make me want to shop there. For two years my request to take Operation Stuff the...

    A pro-family organization has issued an alert to those who may be considering giving to one of the nation's largest charities this holiday season. The group's spokesman is warding donors away from United Way, and he also wants shoppers to know a thing or two about Target stores. Bob Knight, director of the Culture and Family Institute, says the United Way has been crossed off his gift list. That is because the well-known charity refuses to share its money with the Boy Scouts of America while it openly supports numerous pro-homosexual groups with its money. "I don't know why people...

    Target has banned the Salvation Army bell ringers from collecting donations outside stores this holiday season. A Target spokeswoman says they can no longer allow the Salvation Army to be an exception to Target's ban on solicitations at Target stores. The Salvation Army raised nearly 9 Million dollars in front of Target stores last year. The Salvation Army is anticipating Target's decision to effect services offered by the non-profit organization.     We don't feel Target has made the correct decision in banning the Salvation Army. Below is a copy of the letter we sent to Target about the...
