There's a rightwing, black Church in Raleigh called Upper Room Church of God in Christ. Earlier this year, they were involved in a homophobic controversy. Not quite Fred Phelps territory, but the next county over. But their latest stunt is really, really stupid. They took out an ad urging people doing their Christmas shopping to patronize only stores that included "Merry Christmas" or similar language in their ads. OK, let me get this straight. There's a movement afoot to make Jesus not the reason for the season. And the solution is... to organize some kind of boycott while indulging yourself in the orgy of gratuitous consumption that Christmas has become?!?!?! What a bunch of retards. If Jesus were here today, after creating peace in Jerusalem, his next stop would be to invade this church and wreak some holy havoc.
