Duck Dynasty’s War on Christmas

Timothy Kincaid

February 5th, 2014

I haven’t had much time to post lately (still don’t), but I thought I’d share with you this little item I saw at the clearance shelf at Bed, Bath and Beyond. It looks like Duck Dynasty didn’t realize that their core audience wouldn’t appreciate a ‘War on Christmas’ cup.

Dang. Your comment, minus the last sentence, was *word for word* what I was going to say.

The only question now is who does the Duck Dynasty family hate more, America or God?

Oops! And double Oops! Bed, Bath & Beyond is itself listed as “faith friendly” for Christian shoppers.

That photo of Phil was a jolly one. If I saw something like him coming down my chimbley, Ah’d be a runnin fer mah shotgun.

Heck, if I had a shot gun I’d want to have a lot of those glasses. I could set them up on a fence rail and use them for target practice.

@Soren456: What in the world does ‘faith friendly’ mean?

I believe it means, “can I lick your balls? I’ll be care ful with my teeth.”

@ZRAinSWVA:

“Faith friendly” is a rating system devised by evangelicals as a guide for shopping and general patronage. Chik-fil-A and Hobby Lobby are top-rated because they “are not afraid to hide their faith.” BB&B is a notch below.

Yikes! That should read “not afraid to show their faith.” Or something similar.

Ironically, none of the companies listed has ever struck me as the least bit religious, let alone overtly religiously-dominated in the way that Chik-Fil-A or Hobby Lobby are. All except for Kohls seem to be, shall we say ‘less busy’ (and there’s a couple I’ve never heard of) and I’d bet money that all they had to do was pay a bunch of money to get on that list so they could attract more customers.

Granted, I only read the Blaze article, and having gotten a couple of pop-ups while doing that, I’ll be staying away from the rest.
