If ever you needed more proof that pandering to religious wackaloons doesn’t get you anywhere, The Gap was listed as “naughty” by the Christian group Liberty Counsel, who called for a boycott, because they didn’t single out Christmas on their website. Then The Gap mentioned “several unrelated holidays” in this commercial:
The commercial of course made the ironically named American Family Association furious. And I can see why. I’ve never seen such an anti-Christian commercial!
AFA believes this ad to be completely dismissive and disrespectful to those who celebrate the meaning and spirit of Christmas. AFA asked Gap for a meeting to discuss the ad, but Gap has not responded.
If this is Gap’s answer to recognizing Christmas, we are deeply disappointed.
The AFA also wrote (emphasis theirs):
Did you notice it? Gap compares Christmas to the pagan holiday called “Solstice.” Solstice is celebrated by Wiccans who practice witchcraft!
Gap also encourages you to “86” or “dismiss” traditions and “do what feels just right.”
Those heathens at The Gap should be crucified for this outrage…or burnt at the stake. You know who I think is really to blame here? The Jews. First they kill Jesus and now this.
I encourage everyone to call the The Gap’s customer service number (1-800-427-7895, Select more options then feedback to get a live person) and thank them for the all-inclusive commercial to counteract the nonsense of bigots.
