The LA Times points out a major problem with the American Family Association's boycott of the Gap. The AFA complains that the Gap "does not use the word 'Christmas' to avoid offending those who don't embrace its meaning." But if you watch the latest ad, the word "Christmas" appears six seconds in. Maybe the AFA only watched up to second five? In any case, as the LAT notes, nothing's better for public exposure than a boycott, so those heathens over at the Gap might be winning this round.
