Christians are under attack. Below is a list of companies and organizations that engage in egregious revisionism and promote Christmas intolerance.
Why is this important?
When the foundation of your morality is removed you become enslaved to the whims of people in power. Consider the ongoing and continual attacks against all things that help shape your values and morals. Those in power want to be able to mold and control you, and as long as you obey a higher power they can’t. They want to tell you what is important and tolerable. Ironic; those who claim to be tolerant are the most intolerant of Christmas!
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” ~ Edmund Burke
What can you do?
- Do NOT shop at any of the Grinch businesses.
- Tell friends and family not to buy you gifts from the Grinch businesses.
- If you receive something from a grinch business return it.
- Switch your investments in Grinch businesses. Make sure your mutual funds don't invest in them.
- Let Grinch business know you refuse to do business with them.
- Share your displeasure of Grinch greed, poor service, poor quality, and overpriced goods online, in blogs, in e-mails, editorials, on the radio and wherever others will come across.
- Joyfully share your testimonial of how you defended yourself against the Grinch with others.
- If you are aware of any businesses, organizations, or groups intolerant of Christmas, let us know so we can add them to the Grinch list.
Remember the best thing to do to support Christmas is to share the spirit of the holiday and help lift the burden of others. Like the holy family faced with hardship, help them by helping those in need, especially young families, new mothers, the homeless, the hungry, refugees, unemployed, orphans, etc…
If you are unable to break free from your gift exchange practices, begin slowly and make it a point not to shop with those whose aim is to remove Christmas.
