Lost (losing) Liberties: Naughty or Nice Retailers


(AgapePress) – The Florida-based Christian law firm Liberty Counsel has developed a checklist cataloguing retailers who either censor or acknowledge Christmas. The “Naughty and Nice” lists are part of the legal group’s “Friend or Foe” Christmas Campaign, a yearly effort to combat those who attempt to curb expressions honoring the true meaning of Christmas. null So far, stores on the “Naughty” list include Lowe’s, where employees are not allowed to say “merry Christmas” to customers; Banana Republic, whose website refers to a “Holiday Gift Guide” with no mention of Christmas; and Best Buy, whose spokesperson says the use of “merry Christmas” is disrespectful. Meanwhile, among the stores on the “Nice” list are Dillard’s, Hobby Lobby, JC Penney, Jo-Ann Fabrics, L.L. Bean, and Wal-Mart. Click here to read more!


  1. Let the boycotting begin!! 🙂

  2. Even though they are not allowed to say “Merry Christmas” I’m sure they are getting lots and lots of revenue on “Christmas Shopping.” The least they can do is say “Merry Christmas” to their christmas shoppers. I remember when saying Merry Christmas was such a nice greeting, now it offends people. I can imagine that it’s only going to get worse.

  3. Well, I squeak out a jolly “Merry Christmas!” to all my customers at work and most smile back and repeat it. Haven’t had any get offended. 🙂
