Pastor's ad prompts debate over spending for holidays

A pastor's newspaper ad urging Christians to spend their money at retailers who wish them a "Merry Christmas" - and not the more generic "Happy Holidays" - has meant a little less good will this Christmas season.

...

"Why not simply require stores owned by Jews to put a gold star in their ads and on their storefronts?" Melnyk wrote in a letter to the editor published the next day. "Wooden and his church have put away their anti-homosexual rhetoric for the holidays so they can focus their discrimination on non-Christians. Who will be next?"
