AFA War on Christmas Part 2

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]jarandhel)

The American Family Association's early War on Christmas campaign appears to be off to a quick start this year. This is the second email that I've gotten from them, and this time they're calling for a Boycott of Mrs Fields. Naturally, per their request to get it into the hands of as many people as possible, I've decided to forward it to where it might do the most good. ;-) Once again, they using propaganda which conflates "not offering items with Merry Christmas because they don't want to offend anyone" with "not minding if they offend Christians".

Mrs. Fields bans Christmas from their products

Dear ,

Mrs. Fields has become the first company to ban Christmas from their products and promotion for this year.

When Diane H. of Michigan called Mrs. Fields and asked to speak with a supervisor in customer service about why they banned Christmas, the supervisor told Diane that they do not offer anything with Merry Christmas because they don't want to offend anyone.


Take a look at Mrs. Fields Holiday Gift Preview by clicking here. In the "search" bar, type in the word "Christmas." But don't expect to find any reference to Christmas. (If you do, it has been added since this letter was written.)

Mrs. Fields wants the business of Christians who celebrate Christmas, but they don’t mind if they offend Christians.


Take Action

Click here to send an email to Mrs. Fields. Tell the company that since they don’t mind offending Christians, you will not be purchasing their products this Christmas. Ask them to please use Christmas in their promotion next year.

Please forward this to your friends and family and urge them not to buy Mrs. Fields cookies this Christmas.

Sincerely,



Donald E. Wildmon, Founder & Chairman
American Family Association

P.S. Please help us get this information into the hands of as many people as possible by forwarding it to your family and friends.

In a matter which is, of course, entirely unrelated I have decided to buy way more cookies from Mrs Fields this Holiday season than I normally would have. ;-)

Edit: Edited to correct the name of the organization involved. It should have been American Family Assocation, not Focus on the Family.
