In follow up to the previous post about how I think it is a crummy idea to boycott business just because they won’t use the word, “Christmas” I have a better idea. Why doesn’t the AFA boycott businesses that use the word “Christmas” that don’t uphold Christian values. The idea behind this would be the hypocrisy of using “Merry Christmas” to make a buck off Christians when in reality they are just as pagan as all those Grinch, non-Christmas types.
It is far more scriptural to point out “believers” who stumble than to point out pagans who stumble. It is far more scriptural to correct those in the church rather than those outside the church (1 Cor 5:12). I doubt the AFA would take on this challenge and I would really rather them not boycott anyone at this point but I think it is at least worth assessing the underlying ideology behind the boycotts we have seen coming from them and wonder why not at least boycott in a way that would be consistent with scriptural ideals.
