Don't use Progressive Auto Insurance
edit_button

As Christmas nears we have seen more and more companies attack Christmas but remember - you can't have Christmas without Christ. We are His messengers; the ones who share in the great light of joy. With this week of Advent focusing on the joy of the Coming Birth of Christ and ultimately His final coming, let us stand up for Christ this Christmas.

I received an email from the American Family Assosication describing Progressive Auto Insurance supporting the ACLU. Here is the text of the message:

In one of his recent columns, Chuck Colson relates the following story.

In a Texas classroom, children were told to draw a tracing of their foot, and then put a message on the drawing. One little girl wrote "Jesus Loves Me" on hers. What happened next shows the abysmal state of religious tolerance in America. As Fox news anchor John Gibson relates in his new book, The War on Christmas, the child's teacher ripped the tracing off the board. "Don't you ever do this again," she said. The little girl burst into tears. When her outraged father called the school, nervous officials told the child to make another tracing.

She did so—but this time, instead of scrawling "Jesus Loves Me," she drew a tiny cross that was so small it was almost invisible.Behind nearly every such incident you will find the ACLU. According to the New York Times, Peter Lewis, chairman of Progressive Insurance, believes in the mission and work of the ACLU so much that he gave them $8.5 million.

Chairman Lewis' gift helps the ACLU promote their anti-Christmas agenda such as:

  • Removing nativity scenes from public property
  • Banning songs such as Silent Night from schools
  • Refusing to allow students to write about the Christian aspect of Christmas in school projects
  • Renaming Christmas break Winter break
  • Refusing to allow a city sponsored Christmas parade to be called a Christmas parade
  • Not allowing a Christmas tree in a public school
  • Renaming a Christmas tree displayed on public property a Holiday tree
In addition to their war on Christmas, the ACLU uses gifts like that from Chairman Lewis to:

  • Sue states to force them to legalize homosexual marriage
  • Force libraries to remove porn filters from their computers
  • Sue the Boy Scouts to force them to accept homosexuals as scout leaders
  • Help legalize child pornography
  • Legalize live sex acts in bars in Oregon
  • Protect the North American Man Boy Love Association whose motto is "sex by eight or it is too late"
  • Censor student led prayer at graduation
  • Remove "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance
  • Remove "In God We Trust" on our currency

Recommended action: If you have a Progressive Insurance policy, cancel it. If you don't have a Progressive policy, let Chairman Lewis know you will not be buying one. (We recommend you do not purchase Allstate Insurance. We will explain our recommendation in a future letter.)
