I’m no fan of WalMart’s. Too much disruption of the retail world at the expense of the global environment and workers around the world and too little attention to the needs of its own workers. My side of the political fence is not friendly WalMart territory, to be sure. It turns out that right wing religious whackos also hate WalMart. Oops. Sorry. They love WalMart, which is why they want to ruin its business. From the Christian Newswire:
In a statement to the American Family Association yesterday, Wal-Mart agreed that they, “…will not make corporate contributions to support or oppose highly controversial issues unless they directly relate to our ability to serve our customers”. To this we say, “NUTS!”
“Wal-Mart is running scared! It fears the power of the Church of Jesus Christ to move in people’s hearts and change them – to change even where they shop. Wal-Mart needs to fear the God of Sam Walton!”
Wal-Mart is still a “corporate member” of the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, and will continue a financial stake in promoting the radical homosexual agenda.
- Wal-Mart still dispenses the “Plan B” abortion pill that kills unborn children.
- Wal-Mart has not issued an apology for its actions.
- Wal-Mart has not fired its homosexual marketing agency.
- Wal-Mart has not removed the many filthy books for sale on its website.
While Wal-Mart has caved on controversial corporate sponsorships, the Gospel continues. Christians from across the nation will bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club stores this Friday, November 24th. They will call Wal-Mart’s corporate leadership to true repentance, repentance that goes beyond last minute face-saving efforts, half-way apologies, and crocodile tears. (Savewalmart.com)
This is apparently a new kind of deity: The God of Sam Walton. I suppose He’s Cheaper and more Efficient than all the other Gods. Made in China? But this God is angry because his Church is advancing the dreaded homosexual agenda, which is on special this week at WalMart. What’s mildly amusing about this screed is the sexual innuendo. It’s entitled, “Don’t Believe the Hype: Wal-Mart is Still in Bed with Homosexuality” and it continues with a remedy that’s a fetishist’s dream:
“Every executive at Wal-Mart that allowed this to happen needs a good old fashioned spanking” said Flip Benham, Director of Operation Save America, creators of the SaveWalMart.com website.
Do we detect a preoccupation here? Is homophobia a lifestyle or are these people born with it?
