In a time (and season) when Christians think they need to "reclaim Christmas" its nice to see some companies willing to 'give a shout out' to all the different ways of celebrating the season.

The Gap has declared war on Christmas!

How did Barnes & Nobles get on a list like that?
If their policy is to say "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas" then they are against Christmas. Also if they make mention of, or support the 'other' holidays that occur around Christmas, then they are against Christmas.

You can't reason with the unreasonable.
I find this list useful, it gives me a list of places to shop. :)
I'd have to agree with that sentiment.
I find it hilarious that as we speak (as I type?) I am writing a rhetorical analysis on that article for class.
Be sure to check the link to the LA Times article below for some additional tidbits (if its not too late).
Perhaps the AFA did Gap a favor. If you look at the history of the organization’s boycotts — often involving punitive actions against companies that support gay rights — you’ll see that they have no commercial impact. Actually, these boycotts seem to be good for business: In the decade of the AFA’s boycott against Disney, which ended in 2006, the world’s largest entertainment conglomerate’s revenue roughly doubled to $34 billion. Likewise for Ford, which just posted a billion-dollar profit in the third quarter of 2009.

I’m not suggesting causality, but condemnation by the AFA does seem to be a kind of lucky charm for big business. Personally, I am inclined to patronize Gap as a statement of cultural tolerance.
