CHARLOTTE, NC, Nov. 22 /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.
"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. "What Wal-Mart has done is sin! It is a betrayal our Lord Jesus, of Sam Walton's Christian legacy, and Christian families everywhere. Wal-Mart must bear the fruit of repentance."
"Sam Walton is dead. He can't fix the sorry estate Wal-Mart finds itself in. He faithfully ran his lap of the race and served his Lord well. Now it's our turn!"
We continue to encourage men and women, dads and moms, grandpas and grandmas, Christians from every walk of life to call on Wal-Mart to change its course and return to traditional family values and the Biblical principles that made it great.
We are not a protest. We are a proclamation that Jesus Christ is Lord! We are calling an "old friend" back to its Godly roots. Wal-Mart can be saved and so can America. It begins with God's Church!
