Sunday Sermon: Who Would Jesus Boycott?

Let’s say you’re a fine upstanding Christian organization, and you decide to put “Christ” back in “Christmas” (and take it out of “Christian”) by disobeying Jesus and casting judgment.

And let’s say that in this stone-throwing campaign, you’ve tried to ruin a business because you thought they didn’t use “Christmas” in their advertising , but it turns out they’d already used it before you called for the boycott.

What do you do when it becomes obvious that you’ve borne false witness? Why, declare victory, of course.

That’s what the AFA did in its yearly “Naughty or Nice Christmas List” after falsely claiming The Gap didn’t mention Christmas in its ads after it had already run ads mentioning Christmas.

    Too blind to see their own hypocrisy? Sounds about right!
