Catholics Outraged; Say Wal-Mart has Banned Christmas

BY CSA STAFF

Bentonville, Ark., Wal-Mart, faced with defending itself almost daily in the media, is now defending its stand on Christmas.

Although Wal-Mart announced it has “absolutely not” banned Christmas, but, instead, is “trying to serve all our customers for the holiday season,” a Catholic advocacy group has launched a national boycott in response to Wal-Mart’s altered holiday greeting.

According to the New York-based Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, Wal-Mart greeters are replacing their “Merry Christmas” wish with “Happy Holidays.”
