How Does the American Family Assocation Affect Your Holiday Shopping?


The American Family Association says we’re allowed to shop at Gap Inc. again, lifting its temporary boycott of the retailer (and its Old Navy and Banana Republic brands) for not being gung-ho enough about Christmas. That’s because the boycott was “successful”; they know this because Old Navy ran a “Merry Christmas” ad. But instead of going after khakis and stripes, AFA is now targeting tents and ski boots and plasma TVs. Their new target is Dick’s and Best Buy (which is blocking the org’s emails), which AFA demands they start specifically mentioning Jesus’s birthday. Which means: It’s time to stop shopping at Gap and start looking for deals on 60-inch flat screens.
