Every December the Catholic League expends considerable resources fighting against those who seek to censor Christmas. This year, the league is placing its efforts in actively promoting Christmas in the private sector.
It has tens of thousands of ‘Religion-Friendly Zone’ decals to directors of human resources, across the country, at major malls; fraternal organizations; chain department stores, bookstores, drug stores and supermarkets; Fortune 500 businesses; banks; chain restaurants and hotels.
The round, plastic, red and green decal can be stuck in a store window. It says ‘Religion-Friendly Zone’ along the top, and in the center are hands clasped in prayer.
“There is no law which bars privately owned businesses from displaying religious symbols,” said Catholic League president William Donohue.
The decal will indicate to others that the business allows for all religious displays, said Donohue. “Though it is certainly our hope that Christmas [displays] will be prominently featured,” he added.
