That's one helluva Freudian slip (or something) there, American Family Association...

Via karynthia.

Yes indeed, they are apparently serious:

Let Your "Light" Shine For Christ This Christmas Season!

Looking for an effective way to express your Christian faith this Christmas season to honor our Lord Jesus? Now you can.... with the "Original Christmas Cross" yard decoration.

Light up your front yard, porch, patio, driveway, business, organization or church this holiday season with a stunning Christmas cross.

This beautiful Christmas Cross is 5.5 feet tall, with 210 individual ultra bright lights. SHIPPING IS INCLUDED!

Assembles in just minutes! Includes simple instructions and requires only a screwdriver. The cross is compact when not in use. And of course, it's weather-proof.

Decorate this holiday season with the Original Christmas Cross to remind your friends, family, neighbors, and all who drive by your home, office, or church of the real meaning of Christmas. You won't find the Original Christmas Cross in stores, so order online today!

I'm sure it's just an embarrassing mistake anyone could make, this. It's not as though the "War on Christmas" crap -already- had any racist connotations. Nonono.

You know. They just want to make their last stand in a world apparently already gone "dark," right? Light a candle (or a tacky electric cross, only $81! rather than curse etc):

If the liberals win the upcoming election, America as we have known it will no longer exist. This country that we love, founded on Judeo-Christian values, will cease to exist and will be replaced by a secular state hostile to Christianity. This “city set on a hill” which our forefathers founded, will go dark...

Too late now, I guess. poor little turnip.

--O stop reading all that innuendo, you oversensitive liberals: -that's- not what Don Wildmon MEANS, and you know it. He, along with his entire American Family Association, is -not racist.- Not one little teeny tiny bit. What a terrible thing to suggest.

Just rabidly homophobic unto the point of eliminationism.

Which is, as we know, totally different.

I don't know whether to laugh, cry or scream in outrage.

Mostly, I'm just flabbergasted.

Hey, you, long time no see...

For some reason I found this line the most mind-boggling:

And of course, it's weather-proof.

"Of course"?

Well. They wouldn't make such a glaring error as sell their loyal following something that might -electrocute- them. I mean, they're not -stupid- or -irresponsible-.

It's a good thing the Romans didn't hang people. The AFA would be promoting Xmas nooses.

Oh I am so buying one of these for my fundie toxic ex. This will be the perfect accoutrement for their jeebus celebration. They are so blithely ignorant that the underlying horror will entirely escape them but at least will point out to their neighbors where the bigots live. In fact I suggest the progressive community make a concerted effort to give these as gifts to the most deserving businesses and individuals. In the spirit of the season of course.

cybelline - that's brilliant! Although, replace the white bulbs with red ones.

First, it would point out even more starkly the racism issues.

Second, in 17th Century London, a red cross painted on the door of a house meant that the occupants were to be ostracised because they had plague!

Did not know that. Obscure, but I like it. although they'd probably object on the grounds that red is Satanic or something brilliant like that.

welcome, cybelline1.
