有基督徒發起杯葛星巴刻不提「聖誕節」,但我不支持

原刊於Relevant

Every year around this time, there is a common refrain in some circles of Christianity that calls for boycotts against private companies that do not use the term “Christmas” in displays, advertising and interactions between customers and employees.

To the concerned boycotters, by not acknowledging the Christian traditions associated with the holiday, retailers effectively take “the Christ” out of Christmas. But even if taking “Christ” out of Christmas were possible, greeting someone with the words “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” wouldn’t do it.

That’s because the message of Jesus is one of selflessness and treating your neighbor as you would want to be treated. Yes, Jesus is the truth. But He also taught His followers that people will recognize this truth by how we actually treat each other.
