My wife and will only shop be it at Christmas or at any other time of the year at stores that decorate, promote and celebrate the Christian Christmas holiday. I/we are not politically correct nor will we ever be. We are traditionalist and strongly believe in healthy family behavior and values and do not allow other liberals to influence our resolute posture pertaining to our faith. It’s what we/they (Puritans) left England and the tyranny of King George for America back in 1620. It’s the freedom of religion and that was the new world order then and that has not changed to anything different now.
Viewed you on FOX News this morning. I extend to you a sincere Thank you and a very Merry Christmas to you.
We have been relying on the American Family Association for their “Naughty and Nice” list annually and writing (e-mailing) the Naughty list. They all continue to come up with excuses and illogical rational referencing “inclusion”. i.e. Last week I went in to our local Verizon (non Corporate) to pay my Verizon bill at a Verizon franchise (Amcomm Wireless) and I remarked to the nice (unnamed) unit manager that Christmas is coming and are you going to put your large Christmas tree up in your front ceiling to floor glass windows. His “sheepish” response was “no, because we do not want to offend anyone”….my immediate retort was, “your to late, you already have”! My further remark was that the ownership needed to cease political correctness and stop succumbing to the minority and acknowledging the majority.
Note: This week I noticed the Christmas tree was displayed, although not in the front window but in the entry-way glass alcove. The proverbial “Light was turned on”, but it had to take a customer like me to indicate that it was wrong to exclude we the majority Christians for the sake of the hideous political correctness posture promoted by the liberal left and their lapdog “Anti American” ACLU. Fact: The ACLU denies my civil liberties every day via exclusion!
Conclusion: My wife and I will only visit/buy in “CHRISTMAS” oriented stores You seek my business and yet you shun my holiday then I keep my hard earned EXTENSIVE RESOURCES in my pocket and spend those dollars where they more welcomed and are align with my beliefs. No Best Buy, No Crate and Barrel, no Starbucks, no PetSmart etc. If the word CHRIST is not prominently displayed we actually and immediately walk back out. That is our defining criteria! May GOD Bless you all! Aggressively Taking a Stand and Fighting Back.

OMNIgraphique Designers endorsed 2015-04-02 12:14:36 -0400I am sick and very tired of the loud mouthed liberal minority telling the moral majority what it is do and what it is to believe. Devout Christians the world over are now under death attack and its past the time that the silent and the real majority cease their cowardice and take a stand. Remember the Jews in Germany i.e. the holocaust. Cease with the political correctness stop sucking your thumbs and stand for the creator of all that is known and unknown that who has allowed us Free Will to either flourish or to fail and die in total separation from him the creator.
We are disappointed by the misleading and inflammatory nature of many people’s comments in reaction to recent events surrounding Indiana’s religious freedom law. Such language presents an obstacle to the important issue of achieving equality in our culture and in the marketplace. Our multicultural and pluralistic society highly values diversity, and extols respect and tolerance, even for those who hold differing viewpoints. As a nation, we must progress toward a solution that works for everyone.
As Christians, Faith Driven Consumers and faith-friendly business owners, God calls us to love everyone. We are not called to embrace all beliefs or actions, especially those in conflict with our values and convictions. We love our fellow citizens without reservation, even when, as Christian business owners, we decline to participate in the celebration of activities that violate our deeply held religious beliefs and conscience. And, we should have the freedom to do so without fear of prosecution and persecution—just like those who currently enjoy such protections are able to opt out of Christian activities.
Our goal is not exclusion, but rather inclusion. We seek to build a culture where everyone is afforded a safe place in the marketplace. Corporate America has led the charge demanding equality for our LGBT citizens—expanding the definition of diversity to many groups in recent years. We now call upon them, alongside our elected leaders, to seize this incredible opportunity to advocate for a new paradigm of equality. By pursuing equal protections for everyone—respecting that those with differing viewpoints can coexist while retaining the right to exercise and express their convictions—we can create an environment where the needs of all consumers are met. Everyone deserves to be treated with fairness and dignity, including people of faith.
And as Christians, Faith Driven Consumers and faith-friendly business owners, we object to the intolerance directed toward us by politicians, celebrities, and companies such as Apple's Tim Cook, Angie's List's Bill Oesterie, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray, and others. Our religious freedom shouldn't stop the moment we become business owners. For these reasons, we stand with states that protect our religious freedoms, and ask that consumers and owners alike acknowledge that now is the time for Faith Driven Consumers to be fairly added to the marketplace's rich rainbow of diversity.
Faith Friendly Business Owners

There are more of us than there are of you, “The not so silent majority any longer”!GOAL: 10,575 signatures
The First Amendment protects freedom of speech and religion for all Americans, regardless of belief, and you have publicly advocated for making Atlanta “a more welcoming city for all of her citizens, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender, race, and religious beliefs.” In light of this, your decision to terminate Atlanta's distinguished Fire Chief, Kelvin Cochran — a public servant with more than three decades of experience who has served President Obama as U.S. Fire Administrator and was unanimously confirmed as Atlanta’s fire chief —constitutes the absolute height of hypocrisy.
Chief Cochran, exercising his legally protected rights, expressed his religious convictions in his recent book. He even cleared its contents with your own Ethics Office Director. Despite this, you chose to fire him simply because you disagree with his religious beliefs. This action is not only un-American, it constitutes intolerance, bigotry, and discrimination.
We live in a rich, diverse society. A society with differing viewpoints and beliefs, a society of open discourse in which tolerance and inclusion makes it possible for us to disagree with respect. We also live in a society that values equality, including the notion that everyone has the right to publicly express deeply held beliefs without fear of persecution or reprisal. People of faith – who are a significant part of America’s rich rainbow of diversity – share the same fundamental rights as all other groups.
Chief Cochran and the citizens of Atlanta should all have the right to equal application of equal protections under the law. If one group is protected for its beliefs, all groups must be protected.
By signing this petition, I join my fellow citizens in a united call for tolerance, fairness, and equality for all.
I am asking you to:
- Immediately reinstate Chief Cochran.
- Apologize for your unjust actions against Chief Cochran.
- Ensure that no person of faith in Atlanta will be singled out by your administration simply due to the expression of their religious convictions.
As we prepare to celebrate Martin Luther King Day, a holiday honoring an Atlanta native who bravely stood for equality and civil rights, I call on you to respect and honor his legacy. As Dr. King famously said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
If Phil is History I vow that I will remove A& E from my favorites listing on my cable remote! I vow that I will not stand for or support any entity that changes free christian speech and beliefs
My wife and I are sick of political correctness forcing we traditional christians to take a back seat to the intolerant liberal left. Enough already… enough. This is the proverbial “straw that broke the camels back”.
PETITION TO THE A&E NETWORK DEMANDING THE IMMEDIATE REINSTATEMENT OF DUCK DYNASTY’S PHIL ROBERTSON — #ISTANDWITHPHILGOAL: 265,763 signatures
Dear A&E Network,
I am writing to you regarding your network's intolerant, discriminatory, and punitive treatment of Mr. Phil Robertson, star of A&E's #1 hit show, Duck Dynasty.
Mr. Robertson’s comments in GQ Magazine are simply reflective of a Biblical view of sexuality, marriage, and family – a view that has stood the test of time for thousands of years and continues to be held by the majority of Americans and today’s world as a whole.
Many members of the LGBT community may not agree with this view, but the notion that a free-thinking American should be discriminated against simply for expressing a perspective that is in conflict with another is patently un-American and flies in the face of true tolerance and civility. A&E's position, which in your own words is “championing” the gay and lesbian community — which I believe you have the freedom to do — excludes the views of Faith Driven Consumers and effectively censors a legitimate viewpoint held by the majority of Americans.
As a Faith Driven Consumer, I am signing this petition to demand that my views be treated with equality and respect in America’s rich rainbow of diversity.
I am asking your network to immediately reinstate Mr. Robertson to Duck Dynasty, and to formally apologize to him, his family, and the millions of viewers who tune in every week, stand by him, and share his worldview. While the LGBT community may be offended by his opposing viewpoint, your rash, discriminatory, and unfair treatment toward Mr. Robertson — a recognized symbol of the faith community — is a slap in the face to Faith Driven Consumers and everyday Americans alike.
There are 46 million Faith Driven Consumers in America today who spend 1.75 trillion dollars annually. Should you refuse to equally respect and welcome our legitimately held views, we will gladly stop watching this and all other A&E programming and turn to any reformulation of Duck Dynasty on another network – while simultaneously supporting brands that stand with the show and the Robertson family.
John Q. Public
