    Think Progress » Right-Wing American Family Association Misfires In The War On Christmas

    Now, besides the countless products with the word "Christmas" on them.

    And of course, this:

    Many religious people have a need to feel persecuted.

    Very true. I think it helps them to believe or something.

    So a christian religious group wants other christians that celebrate christmas as the birth of christ to not shop in those stores?

    Good for them I guess. Me personally if the gap has a gift I want to buy for someone on my agnostic christmas gathering I'll buy it there. Its a free country and companies can say or not say what they want and people can shop or not shop where they want for whatever reasons.

    I wont shop walmart for example, nothing to do with christmas just a personal choice based on the way they conduct business.


    Merry Christmas Everyone :).

    You got me, but it is a fact.

    Perhaps it has something to do with past persecutions or something. However in the USA they give more persecutions than they get.
    This boycott of the Gap being an example.

    IMHO - there is no such thing as an "agnostic Christmas."
    Christmas is a Christian holiday - why would non-Christians celebrate the birth of Christ?
    If you want a sectarian winter holiday, then go for it. But it ain't "CHRISTmas."

    Nope my family, on both my mother's and father's side, has always celebrated christmas with presents, santa clause for the kiddies, and a family dinner gathering.

    We have NEVER gone to a church mass or celebrated christmas as the birth of christ. We celebrate christmas as a day to show our love and appreciation for our family members. Nothing religious about it at all.

    Our christmas is secular.
