BUENA PARK, Calif., Nov. 25 /Christian Newswire/ -- Dr. Wiley S. Drake Sr. pastor of First Southern Baptist Church of Buena Park California, and newly elected 2nd Vice President of the Southern Baptist Convention, announced today that he is calling all people from all walks of life to boycott Wal Mart until the company repents and returns to the family roots put down deep by Christian businessman Sam Walton.
Drake said on his 63 birthday he sent the following letter to Lee Scott, President of Wal Mart:
Dear Mr. Scott,
Please accept my appreciation for Wal-Mart taking a stand to remain neutral in the cultural wars.
However as long as you are killing babies with your selling "Plan B" I will not return to your stores.
Also as long as you are still a member of the Homosexual Chamber of Commerce I will not return to your store.
I could go on but the list is long, and until Wal Mart Repents I will do all I can to keep people out of your stores.
I am pastor of First Southern Baptist Church of Buena Park California, and I am 2nd Vice President of the 16 million strong Southern Baptist Convention.
I am not speaking for my Church or my Denomination, but as the pastor, and member of my Church I do speak against you. I do not speak for the Southern Baptist Convention, but I do speak as a member against what you have done to my brother's company. Sam is a fine Christian, and now in Heaven, I'll see him again, and will be glad that I can say, I did all I could to bring WAL MART back to the Christian roots you planted.
Pastor Drake said I am asking all families to do what the Drake family is going to do. If only 5% of Wal Mart customers would stay out of their stores, and not spend with them what we spent last year it will cost them $200,000,000 dollars, and even to a giant like Wal Mart, that's a lot of money. The little guy and his family can make a difference.
