Why Wal-Mart?


I am one of those people who is no longer shopping at Wal-Mart, but as I talk with other Christians I often get the response that they're going to continue shopping at Wal-Mart because probably all of the other stores we would shop at in place of Wal-Mart are also doing sinful things and/or supporting gay and lesbian groups etc. What is your response to this? Do you know if Kmart supports gays and lesbians? Do you have a list of businesses which Christians can support in good conscience?

I believe if I can address this issue I could be more effective in encouraging people not to support Wal-Mart.

                            Thank you,

Hi Eileen,

Why Wal-Mart?  It's very true that many other stores have also been bullied into supporting gay issues and have engaged in other evils, but Wal-Mart is special.  It is the single largest private employer in America with 1.3 million employees.  It is the largest retailer and the largest privately-owned retailer in America , with 127 million weekly customers. It boasts a $300 BILLION a year business .  Wal-Mart is the biggest in everything! And it started out under Sam Walton as a godly, family-friendly operation. If we can fight and win at Wal-Mart, we'll be sending a strong message to other companies that they too need the support of American families to succeed and they won't get it by stomping on our values and encouraging and promoting those things that God abhors.

I hope this helps!

God bless your efforts for His kingdom.
