Microsoft’s new holiday ad is promoting peace, love and harmony. The ad tackles such issues as LGBTQ rights, Muslim Americans, and the strained relationship between the African-American community and police officers. To us at Hayden’s List, this ad embodies the “true” meaning of Christmas and emulates the Golden Rule of “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
Of course celebrating what is good and right in the world is upsetting to some “Christians.” The ad was blasted by Bill Donohue, founder of the Catholic League. He claims that Microsoft is “exploiting Christmas” by “pushing the LGBT agenda.” Donohue added “If the bi-coastal elites at Microsoft really believe in diversity, then let them have their LGBT celebrations in June during gay pride month, and leave December to Christians.”
Microsoft described their ad as bringing people together who are making a difference in the world. “This is their vision of hope, peace and beauty. We wanted to lift people up and remind them that ordinary people can make a difference.”
Thank you, Microsoft. We here at Hayden’s List will continue to spread harmony.
