The Christian tenets to love and forgive guide us to “hate the sin, not the sinner”. However, with morality seemingly collapsing all around us, Christians must recognize that tolerance and acceptance of ever-changing societal “norms” can never be allowed to infringe upon our beliefs and when they do, we must make our voices heard. Admittedly, this is difficult to do in a day when Christianity is being shunned, ridiculed, and attacked. The Bible never said being a Christian would be easy.

As big-money organizations use their wealth and resources to persuade lawmakers to support changes in laws that would infringe upon Christian beliefs, we must be conscious of their actions and act in our business dealings with them accordingly.  This is especially important if a company chooses to take a moral stance  in order to appear “politically correct” – they must recognize that a Christian’s definition of political correctness differs widely from what is fast becoming the norm in our society.

Anti-religious/Anti-Christian Companies and Organizations

The following are companies who in various ways, have publicly supported policies, laws, or standards which Christians deem inappropriate and immoral or have publicly or reportedly denounced religion and/or Christianity.  Although it would certainly be preferable to avoid doing business with these companies entirely, that may not always be possible (e.g., Coca-Cola and Pepsi Cola both appear on the list).  Regardless, Christians can still take the time to write these organizations and let them know you disagree with their moral stance.

Finally, although the list is quite large, take note that many US-based companies do not appear on the list (e.g., General Motors and Target appear on the list, Ford and Wal-Mart do not), and Christians should recognize companies that, despite media and societal pressure, have refused to relax their moral values.
