Dallas Church Offers Website To Bolster Christmas

DALLAS (AP) – A North Texas church has taken its holiday religious message online with a website to report “naughty” businesses that halt the celebration of Christmas.

First Baptist Church of Dallas on Wednesday operated Grinchalert.com.

The site asks “Have you encountered a ‘Grinch’ this Christmas season?”

The website has a place to nominate groups that “shut-out expressions of Christmas in their interactions with the public via marketing, advertising and public relations.” The website says companies belong on the “Naughty List” when they use “misplaced political correctness to halt the celebration of Christmas.”

First Baptist Church also seeks to know which companies that “keep Christ in Christmas” and those land on the “Nice List.”

The Rev. Robert Jeffress says too many businesses have bowed to political correctness.

    Christmas is a Pagen holiday that was converted so Pagens would join the Christians. It’s not in the Bible and to teach children about Santa being real is a sin!

      Christmas commerates the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and is celebrated the world over by Christian belivers ..Pagan?.. Not hardly..
      I do, however, agree with you about Santa.

        No, RichieK. Open a history book for a change. Christmas has its roots in ancient celebrations of the winter solstice, and MANY religions have recognized it, some long predating christianity. You may choose to use that date to celebrate a birthday, but that’s has nothing to do with it. Most religious scholars believe jesus was actually born in the spring, not in winter. Want some fun facts about Easter? Look up the ancient goddess Eostre.

    I agree.Somebody need to teach Christians to follow the Bible and not the world.

    I’m tired of the thought police trying to force everyone to think and speak in one way only, that way being the one the thought police deem most appropriate. There is nothing wrong with wishing people a happy holiday or season’s greetings; those terms have been around about as long as celebrating Christmas has. Please quit trying to make the entire population fit into one group’s idea of what is right.

    I couldn’t believe the pious arrogance Rev. Jeffress exhibited during his interview on KRLD today. Today is Hanukkah, not Christmas, but his world is more exclusive of different views than inclusive. I’m thankful Jesus was a better example of true Christian values than these modern Christians who promote exclusion of anything unlike themselves.
