But don’t tell that to the good people of First Baptist-Dallas. That megalith of a church, currently undergoing a $110 million building project, has launched a website to call out businesses that aren’t Christmasy enough for their tastes. The story is reported by the intrepid Dallas Morning News religion reporter, Sam Hodges:
First Baptist Church of Dallas is making a list this Christmas, and lots of people will be checking it.
The Rev. Robert Jeffress, the church’s pastor, announced Tuesday the launch of www.GrinchAlert.com. There people can post on a “naughty” list the names of businesses that aren’t acknowledging Christmas through store displays, advertising and greetings to customers.
“Too many businesses have bowed down to political correctness,” Jeffress said. “I thought this would be a fun way to call out businesses that are refusing to celebrate Christmas.”
