MEDIA ADVISORY, Nov. 21 /Christian Newswire/ -- On Friday, November 24, 2006, the busiest shopping day of the year, Christians from across the nation will bring the Gospel of Christ to the very gates of the largest retailer in the World – WAL-MART!
In Charlotte, North Carolina and at over 300 other Wal-Mart Stores across the nation, a Gospel information explosion will take place with brochures, preaching, praying, and Christian witnessing. Christianity is moving out of the closet to become biography in the streets to come to the aide of America’s “favorite” store! God blessed Wal-Mart and it became America’s favorite store because Sam Walton chose to honor God and run his business according to Biblical principles. That has now changed.
Here is what has happened:
• On August 21, 2006, the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce” (NLGCC) announced a “partnership” with Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.
• Wal-Mart is now a corporate member” of the NGLCC.
• Wal-Mart gave a one time $25,000 gift to join the NGLCC.
• NGLCC leads efforts to abolish the definition of marriage - union of one man and one woman.
• Wal-Mart will now prefer companies with lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered owners.
• A Wal-Mart vice-president will serve as an advisor to NGLCC.
• Wal-Mart will now sponsor (pay for) some programs of the NGLCC.
• Wal-Mart now dispenses the “Plan B” abortion pill. Wal-Mart now helps kill little baby boys and girls in the privacy of American homes.
• Wal-Mart sells homosexual sex manuals through their on-line store.
Our schools, businesses, government, and churches are being extorted and being forced to honor things that are an abomination to God. It’s time for Christians to take a stand! It’s time for us to come out of the closet and allow our theology to become biography in the streets. The gates of hell cannot prevail!
We are not a protest. We are a proclamation that Jesus Christ is Lord! Wal-Mart can be saved and so can America. It begins with God’s Church!
