2ndVote.com is one of the ministries and faith-based organizations offering information on various businesses and where they stand on social issues and or the word "Christmas." The group of conservatives wants to help consumers make better decisions by letting them know where their money really goes when they make purchases.

"As Christians," says FDC founder Chris Stone, "We have a great opportunity to be stewards of all that God gave us, including what we spend in the consumer marketplace."

American Family Association (AFA) has also released its annual Naughty or Nice List, which rates top retailers on how they market to Christmas shoppers.

AFA Executive Vice President Ed Vitagliano tells OneNewsNow the good news is the number of "naughty" companies has been shrinking in recent years.

"We're happy to see that. The trend is clearly back towards companies recognizing that Christmas is an important part of this time of year for most people in this country, and certainly the vast majority of those who go shopping," he notes.

The list only reflects a company's "Christmas" advertising and does not take into account other corporate policies with which AFA may not agree.
