Walmart Employee Quits Over Gay Issue

And the Worldnutdaily is hot on the story.

The Ohio woman, after hearing the shocking confirmation directly from the mega-corporation's international headquarters that the company is, in fact, contributing to the financial and moral agenda of the nation's "gay" chamber of commerce, she quit. And she's not a bit worried.

"I got God backing me. That's where I stand on it," she told WND in an interview.

I don't think God is gonna help you get unemployment benefits. And you're gonna love the rest of the article:

Baird had worked for the corporation, in various branches including Sam's Club and Wal-Mart, since 1992. It was a recent tip she received from her brother that was the beginning of the end, because he told her "my company had joined the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce."

It was during an interview with WND in August that Wal-Mart spokesman Bob McAdam said, "It is correct that we have a dialogue with the (gay chamber). This is just what businesses do."

"Sam Walton was such a moral man, he wouldn't even allow music to be sold in his stores if it had bad language," Baird said. "When it comes to moral values, first of all they started selling smutty magazines, then they brought in nasty music and videos, even ones others refused to sell, like 'Brokeback Mountain.'"

Now this comes along. "I sent an e-mail (to the company) asking, 'What have you done to Sam Walton's store?" Baird said.

McAdam had told WND the move was just another business outreach, much as the company's affiliations with other chambers of commerce, such as the Hispanic organization.

But to Baird, it wasn't the same. She called the corporate office for its response. "The lady said, 'Yes.' When I asked if the money I spent shopping at Wal-Mart would go to support same-sex marriage, she simply responded, 'Sales are sales.'"

"I let her know how long I had worked at Wal-Mart and told her that I would no longer work for this company and never spend another dime there. She replied, 'I hope you don't mean that.' I did mean it. The next day I went to the store and quit. The manager that signed my exit papers had no idea about what had been going on in the leadership of Wal-Mart."

Now she's staging protests in front of that store, and others nearby, to let people know of the company's affiliations and commitments.

I wonder if they carry signs that say "Walmart sells food to gay people." I'm sure this dolt will be sorely missed at Walmart.

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.

Walmart has decided to join the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, in an obvious attempt to sell products to a group of people with significant disposable income. The result, predictably, is a major freakout by the religious right. Now I know, we hear from conservatives all the time…

I don't think God is gonna help you get unemployment benefits.

The sad thing is that she's going to get lots of offers of material aid and assistance from those who believe she's doing a brave thing, and she'll be in another job in no time. And so "God's Providence" will have been "shown" to be with her.

The red states (especially the poor in red states) have suffered more from this debacle than the blue states.

Can we ask the terrorists to aim the planes at the red states next time?

Let us bear in mind that (a) some of the yay-creationism battles are being fought in so-called blue states, and (b) all states are to a greater or lesser degree purple, in fact. Most of the divisions in the last president election were smaller than 60/40, red state or blue state. This means that you've got lots of people who voted for the "wrong" candidate (no matter who that is) in any state... plus lots of people who voted for the "right" candidate.

Don't nuke all of us just because a little more than half of the people around us voted the wrong way.

Apparently, the woman (the former employee) is too dumb to realize that, to Wal-Mart, she is fungible. Her quitting isn't going to harm Wal-Mart at all.

I got God backing me.

That's funny, I don't see any halos or anything.

That's where I stand on it,

Oh okay. That explains it then.

I don't think the terrorists should be aiming anything at anything, thank you very much.

As a long-time Wal-Mart employee, all I can say is good riddance to her, and I'm glad I didn't have to work with her. ;)

That takes me back. I remember when the DX was a separate chip.

I dont understand the big issue of gays working at Walmart. I am in the US Navy Reserve and they "dont ask or don't tell" and they dont kick us out. That is why I am still in the US Navy Reserves. They don't ask and I don't tell." Why can't we all just get along with each other and leave our sexual side of our lives alone. I am fine as to who I sleep with and its none of nobodys business who I sleep with, whether its a male or a female. They have so many rumors flying around in Walmart stores across the nation, that everyone knows who is gay, bisexual or just plain straight. Just leave us alone and allow us to do what we want. Thank you....
