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.
