Best Buy had an ad on their Thanksgiving Flyer about a Muslim hoilday and wishing them a happy one while keeping their doors open on Thanksgiving.

No mention of any Merry Christmans. How do you feel about that?

  • but i don't think they have the right to do that... we live in a non islamic country.... and we have to live by the rules of the state. now if it were a muslim store, maybe they might have the right to protest it.. or if this was a muslim country and even then there are rules that apply which they have to follow. however here they don't. They should just tend to their own business and worship God and stop trying to join the crowd or change things that truly have no impact on being able to worship the Creator.

  • She is upset , notpanicking because dumb ass best buy can mention a Muslim holiday, but no one is allowed to say Merry Christmas, anymore, you have to say happy holidays. It really upsets me, because our country was founded on Christian beliefs, and if you can say have a nice Muslim holiday you should at least be able to say Merry Christmas, without someone getting all upset, this is so ridiculous.
