Is "boycott" a family value? Arguably. It depends on what we're boycotting against, I suppose. Boycotting Company X because they operate sweat shops full of child laborers? Yes. But boycotting Target because they wish their customers "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas?" Give me a break.
I'm usually not a hostile or mean person, but I have to say, The American Family Association is a bunch of self-disillusioned, self-righteous, idiotic ****** (it rhymes with "bricks"). Their motto is "we promote traditional family values." Whose?
Chances are, if Jesus were alive today, he would smite those bastards.
And I can't believe I'm here defending Mr. George W. Bush. Seems like the AFA are not pleased with Mr. Bush because in his annual holiday cards he did not say "Merry Christmas," but "Season's Greetings" instead. Phooey, Mr. President. Have you abandoned your faith? Have you deserted your fellow Christians? Have you forgotten to drink your Kool-Aid this morning?
Give the guy a break. He is the President of the United States, a country made up of all races and creeds, people of all religions; not to mention the cards go to heads of state from other countries who don't share the Christian faith. I for one celebrate Christmas even though I'm not religious, but I sure don't mind if others (Jewish, Muslims, Buddhists...) simply wish me "Happy Holidays."
Whatever happened to compassion and good will to men? Where is the holiday spirit?
I'm now convinced that the AFA is really a bunch of whining babies. And whatever small sliver or crumb of respect I have (I had to look between the cushions of my couch) for them is now gone. Bye bye. Poof.
And Mr. President, Happy Holidays to you, too.
