Anti-gay group ranks own online store #1 on ‘naughty or nice’ Christmas list
The anti-gay American Family Association has ranked its own online store the number one destination for Christmas shoppers.
The Christian pressure group – which is listed as an active anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Centre – produced a “naughty or nice” list for its supporters.
It urges consumers to eschew shops like Victoria’s Secret, Barnes & Noble and Staples for various crimes against Christmas, in favour of companies that “celebrate Christmas on an exceptional basis”.
Surprisingly, the special seasonal list is topped by none other than the AFA’s own online store, where you can buy the group’s feature film Summer Snow (though honestly we’d prefer a big lump of coal).
The store also sells box sets of reality show Duck Dynasty – whose star Phil Robertson is famed for his ho-ho-homophobic comments – as well as not-particularly-festive materials to homeschool children in religious doctrine.
The group warned: “There are secular forces in our country that hate Christmas because the word itself is a reminder of Jesus Christ. They want to eradicate anything that reminds Americans of Christianity.
“That is why it is important to remind governments and companies to keep the word Christmas alive. AFA wants to keep Christ in Christmas and Christmas in America.”
