Faith-Friendly Companies… and Hostile Ones [list]

Craig HueyChurch5 Comments

Every Christmas, I list those companies who wipe away any mention of Christmas and ignore the faith community.

“Holiday” trees. Forbidding employees to say “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays.”

It’s ripping Christ out of Christmas.

I’ll give a list again in an upcoming issue.

But now there is a slightly different list. It includes “Christmas” in its ranking. But it also includes a company’s support of pro-life views and treatment of Christian employees.

It’s called Faith Driven Consumer.

So far the companies nationwide have a miserable index average of 32, on a 100 point scale.

The list below may surprise you…

Christians are encouraged to support faith friendly companies. They say on their website to approach companies with “Christ-like love and grace as missionaries in the marketplace where we spend the vast majority of our time on this earth.”

Here is a sampling of companies’ scores (the higher the score, the better they treat their Christian employees and consumers):

Bank of America: 11

Orbitz: 15

Pfizer: 16

Microsoft: 17

Apple: 19

United Health Group: 23

Verizon: 23

CVS: 23

Macy’s: 23

Progressive: 24

American Express: 27

Starbucks: 27

Best Buy: 29

Staples: 29

Delta: 30

McDonalds: 33

Hilton: 33

Lowe’s: 40

United States Postal Service: 45

Walmart: 51

Cracker Barrel: 53

Tyson: 60

Interstate Batteries: 61

Hobby Lobby: 62

Chick-fil-A: 63


Note how many companies came close to the most hostile companies – Apple, Bank of America, Microsoft, and Starbucks.

  1. I TRY hard to avoid anti-American & anti-Christian companies. However, we are being squeezed like crazy.

    1. Yeah, there’s less and less competition in some categories, such as Walmart taking over most of our generalized shopping. I used to like Mervyn’s but they’re out of business, and there’s only Kohls left now for dedicated clothing. It’s depressing that so many businesses have gone under in recent years, giving us less choices of where to shop. My wife and I make a particular effort to frequent Chick-fil-A as much as we can because they are pro-Christian and their employees are so much more friendly than anyplace else we go to. Thanks to you Craig for making a list of these companies, because we have never found any rankings like this.

  2. It is interesting to me that Bank of America is the bank used by the State of California as the interim of providing state funds thru debit cards to disabled individuals receiving disability funds.
