Posted on 09/29/2006 9:14:41 AM PDT by restornu
We've just begun a serious discussion at our house about whether we will withdraw from shopping at Wal-Mart. They are close by; we spend thousands of dollars there a year; but they have succumbed to pressure and are actively promoting the homosexual agenda and homosexual marriage. Just look at what they are doing in Idaho, where Family Leader is working hard to pass a state marriage protection amendment.
Enough is Enough
Wal-Mart Sponsoring Diversity Week
The following is a report from our friends at the American Family Association. We work in coalition with them on several projects through our Washington D.C. affiliation.
Wal-Mart has given its full endorsement to the homosexual agenda and homosexual marriage. Boise State University in Boise, Idaho, will observe LGBT Diversity Week October 9-13. One of the sponsors for the Diversity Week is Wal-Mart.
Wal-Mart is joining the Pleasure Boutique (an adult bookstore which bills itself as "Idaho's largest selection of adult movies and DVDs and largest adult toy selection in Idaho") and other groups in sponsoring the week. Diversity Week is a week of celebrating homosexuality and promoting the homosexual agenda and homosexual marriage.
Among the events being sponsored by Wal-Mart is Idaho Votes No Campaign Update and Information Workshop. Voters in Idaho will be voting on a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage in November. This Wal-Mart sponsored event will inform voters how to oppose the amendment and how to get others to do so. Wal-Mart is putting their money behind the effort to legalize homosexual marriage.
Other events being sponsored by Wal-Mart: Gay History of Idaho, Diversity in the Workplace, Women's/Lesbian Issues, Hate Based Crimes, Heterosexism, Homosexuality and Disabilities, LGBT Youth in Trouble, MCC-Faith and LGBT, and a youth dance for those age 24 and under.
Wal-Mart is throwing their clout and cash behind the homosexual marriage effort.
Our nation defends gay rights as well. Are you going to protest by moving to China?
Why does every business decision have to be politically calculated? How about not shopping there because their stuff is garbage, the employees are incompetent, and management is rude? That's been my Wal-Mart experience and my reasons for not shopping there.
Well, it seems the Left will have to go easy on Wal-Mart from now on;)
"**On Friday morning and afternoon following Thanksgiving day, November 24, 2006, we are calling upon Christians to allow their theology to become biography on the streets in front of local Wal-Mart stores.
We have dedicated a new website www.Savewalmart.com that will enable you to find out the latest news and register your local Wal-Mart where you will be taking your stand for Jesus.
*Please enlist your Pastor in this incredible missionary outreach. *"
Well, they feed excessive consumerism, which is a form of greed. Supporting other forms of sin would be no surprise, methinks. All part of the same package (see tagline).
That's nice - I mean, instead of a discussion on the points, just insult the poster - so much easier.
I love Walmart.
It attracks many customers.
While all those customers are shopping in Walmart, I can go to Freds Discount, Family Dollar or Dollar General, and avoid the crowd.
I love Walmart.
"How about not shopping there because their stuff is garbage, the employees are incompetent, and management is rude? "
Because none of that is true?
Gays do have rights but NOT to same sex marriage!
There stuff is garbage? I can buy a B&D cordless drill at WM for about 15-20 less then I can get it anywhere else. Is this drill any less quality then the identical one bought at Sears? I can name you many many items from TV sets to food that are less at WM. As for the employees, I don't condone rudeness but then I seldom need an employee in any store save to point their finger in the direction of the product I want to purchase. I do not socialize with WM employees in any way and all I need them to do is open the door at the correct time and have the lights on and the cash registers manned so I can make my purchase, save money and be on my way.
People who rant against WM remind me of an acquaintance who refused to shop at a certain discount store in the area that specialized in selling merchandise purchased from bankrupt companies. He would come up with dumbest reasons imaginable but the bottom line was he felt he would somehow demean himself by shopping in (in his mind) a low class place like that where he had to walk among what I'm sure he considered the riff raff (bargain seekers). This guy drove a truck for a living.
That's not nice.
We have stopped shopping at Wal-mart, mainly because of the Gay Chamber of Commerce issue.
We spen(t) alot of money there each week, not that I'm boycotting or anything...shopping there doesn't seem right anymore. I'll be cutting up and cancelling my Wal-mart credit card, also.
Our local Walmart stopped taking checks. They only do electronic withdrawals (echecks). I would not dream of trusting their employees with my banking information. I had a bad experience and just don't do e-checks.
Myself and my company simply quit going there. Haven't missed it whatsover.
I'm a WalMart supporter and shop there every week. But this is a bad business decision by WalMart.
Liberals feel, they don't think. Since they already "feel" that WalMart is bad, promoting the gay agenda isn't going to change that, but it does have the potential to turn off shoppers in middle America.
Bad move, WalMart.
