AFA Takes Cue From WOWOC!

Days after WE POINTED OUT (“…Videos for your Warring Pleasure…”) that OLD NAVY had fallen beneath the radar of the Christmas police, AFA swings belatedly into action! Are they reading us, or what? Now, yes the image of their mailing doesn’t fit our format, but you get the idea…

Gap, Old Navy censor ‘Christmas,’ replace it with ‘Holiday’

Dear Dumb Ox,

Gap, which owns Old Navy, Banana Republic, Forth & Towne and Piperlime, has become the latest politically correct retailer, intentionally censoring the use of “Christmas” in their in-store, online and printed advertising.

Instead of referring to the season as Christmas, Gap instead uses the word “holiday.” As hard as we tried, AFA could not find a single instance in which Gap-owned stores use the term “Christmas.” Not a single time!

When one Old Navy store manager was asked by AFA if the word Christmas was in his store, he answered, “We have a lot of Christmas gifts in our stores, but the word Christmas is not used here. Everything is ‘holiday.'”

Gap wants you to do your Christmas shopping with them, but they don’t want to mention the Reason for the season. Gap doesn’t want to offend non-Christians by using Christmas. The fact that their censoring the use of Christmas might offend Christians seems to be of no importance.

Take Action

If you think our efforts are worthy, would you please support us with a small gift? Thank you for caring enough to get involved.

Sincerely,

Donald E. Wildmon, Founder and Chairman

Honest, I didn’t write the copy for this AFA Alert! Not one of their better efforts…
