An update from the front: the “War on Christmas”

Today is Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year. 23/6 would like take a moment to commend our troops in the War on Christmas. Focus on the Family commentator Stuart Shepard might threaten you with boycotts for being “Christmas-offensive” in your refusal to demand that your employees say “Merry Christmas” to customers, but you do not blink. You brave retailers who put yourselves and your profits in harm’s way solely to strike a blow against this yearly abomination that has plagued our nation for generations, you are the stores that will be remembered when this war is won and when Christmas is nothing more than a bloody corpse trodden under the feet of Godless department store greeters everywhere. When we speak of courage, we speak of:

American Eagle

Banana Republic

Bloomingdale’s

Lane Bryant

Old Navy

We commend you. Because of you, this year Christmas is going to reach into its stocking and find nothing but razor blades.
