AFA pres to Chase: Not using ‘Christmas’ shows disregard for ‘our judeo-Christian heritage’
The AFA, which has recently been called a hate organization, has set their sights on Chase as their next target in the “war for Christmas.”
The President of AFA, upset that Chase only allows certain holiday decorations at their offices, fired off this letter to them:
This is an absurd policy… The most welcoming, inclusive thing you can do this time of year is wish people a merry Christmas.
In fact, Chase’s policy will actually be offensive to many people who bank there. When customers find out that Chase is deliberating disregarding Christmas, they may just be inclined to take their banking business to a Christmas-friendly institution. Christmas is a holiday we’ve set aside as a nation to honor the birth of Christ because of his impact on American and world history. It’s just bad business for any company to show this kind of disregard for our Judeo-Christian heritage.
I don’t usually interject my personal opinion into my pages, but I can’t help myself. I’m a Christian and I think this guy is crazy. There is nothing uniquely American about the holiday of Christmas. In fact Christmas existed for a long before anyone even knew what America was.
Whether or not a person celebrates Christmas is a personal decision, not a decision to be shoved down his or her throat by some organization.
