Over the past year, I spent $8,000 at Best Buy and from this point on, I will never spend another cent at Best Buy.

I have 25 friends that are also big spenders who are also boycotting Best Buy and each of them have at least 25 friends that have ageed to boycott Best Buy and each of their friends and on and on and on and on and the momentum to boycott Best Buy continues to grow. The boycott might not have happened if Best Buy included numerous other Holiday Sayings from many other cultures including Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas, but it is too late and they cannot take back their mistake and nothing can erase such a stupid/thoughtless/mindless act.

thru the years i have utilized the services rendered at besty buy to the extent of tens of thousands of dollars. but you went over the line when you recognize a pagan holiday over the birth of the king of the ages,christ is the reason and believe me you will one day regret your decisions to exclude the Great One for your advertisment. may the reigning KING HAVE MERCY ON INFIDELS SUCH AS yourself and the fat cats who have exploited good peaople i shall deadvertise for you to the extent humanly possible

I agree with Mr. Agular. We are displacing God for any other form of "religion". This country was founded on CHRISTIAN-JUDEO values -not Muslim, not Satanism, not Atheism, not Wicken, not Kwanza, nor any other faith. I am a Christian and will proclaim the Heavenly Fahter's Name for as long as I live, even if it costs me my life in the end. I am very offended by the minorities in this country complaining about my God and my faith! If I can tolerate them living in this country, why can't they tolerate me and my values? If they don't like the values this country was founded on, why don't they live in a place that is more suited to their foundational beliefs?

I knew from the start of your comment that you were an atheist. I feel quite sorry for you and will pray for your salvation. The Lord God wishes that all would be saved and that none should perish. When you die you will go to hell for eternity unless you repent ofyour sins and turn to God and ask for forgiveness. I agree that our forefathers were unfair to the native americans and that they were wrongly treated when their land was taken. However, this is the present and there is nothing we can do about that now. We must live in the present and trust in the Lord God for our futures. May God forgive you for your wrong-thinking about Him.

This is a christian nation only because you say so. It was fought for by men doing their jobs. Not all of them were god fearing. People despise us for what you are, "arrogant god fearing christians". You christians need to put down the funny paper and pick up a history book on just what your religion has done to the non-believers in the past. Have you forgotten what your forefathers done to the native people of this land? Your god fearing forefather practiced genocide against these people because they had a different culture and a different religious belief. Your forefathers were no different from the terrorist of today. Did your forefathers leave the natives beliefs ALONE? Did they leave their children ALONE? Did they leave their laws ALONE? Did they accept their new country and its ways". Another poster mention about a "false god". Again, the arrogence of you people. Throughout time you religious people have been praying and praying...just what has it gotten you? I am a free thinking atheist,that doesn't need any of the crutches that religion supplies. I personaly don't care what you put on your money, what you pray for in school, what holidays you celebrate and that is what is so nice about being able to make my own decisions, with an unchained mind, on my terms and with the knowledge that I am responsible for my actions. Again, you people need to read your christianity beginnings. It was not pretty.
