AFA Urges Members to Cast Wary, Homophobic Glances at Wal-Mart
Filed under: Right Watch
This report comes from Agape Press:
…A pro-family activist says America’s largest retailer is helping to further the homosexual agenda of destroying the traditional family. Wal-Mart has announced its approval of a “Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Associates” affinity group for employees. Some pro-family advocates believe is only a matter of time before this group demands same-sex partner health benefits, financial support for homosexual meetings, “pride” parades, and workshops.
Randy Sharp, special projects director for the American Family Association, is advising pro-family shoppers to think twice before patronizing a store that openly promotes the homosexual lifestyle. He says by embracing homosexuality, Wal-Mart is now pulling away from the ideals that have helped the retailer foster longtime positive relationships between customers and its neighborhood stores and allying the company with pro-homosexual interests.
“Wal-Mart’s decision is normalizing a very dangerous and unhealthy behavior,” Sharp warns concerned citizens, “and you should care because Wal-Mart is helping to advance [homosexual activists’] agenda, and that final agenda … is same-sex marriage — to destroy traditional marriage as between a man and woman.”
The AFA spokesman is encouraging Wal-Mart customers to voice their objection to the company’s endorsement of homosexuality. [Rusty Pugh]
The AFA apparently had no comment on Wal-Mart’s poverty wages, or on a report that claims that in 2003 California taxpayers forked over $32 million in health care costs for underinsured Wal-Mart employees.
