Walmart and the Rainbow Flag
Whether it be selling mostly foreign-made merchandise or promoting homosexuality, Walmart is no longer the store Sam Walton envisioned. He would not have announced opposition to the Arkansas Religious Freedom Restoration Act earlier this spring, nor would he have allowed his company to be a sponsor, let alone a platinum sponsor, of this Sunday’s New York City Pride parade . . . and of course there’s the sale of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition! Unfortunately, all of the above is true in today’s Walmart stores.
After the tragic killing of nine African Americans attending a Bible study last Wednesday evening, Walmart and other corporations have announced they will pull all merchandise displaying the Confederate flag. However, “family friendly” Walmart continues selling a flag that most Christians find offensive because they have been targeted by the bearers of that flag — the rainbow flag
During the announcement about the banning of merchandise with the Confederate flag, Brian Nick, spokesman for Walmart said, “We never want to offend anyone with the products that we offer. ” The rainbow flag is offensive to Christians who have been targeted by those bearing that flag. It is time to let Walmart know that unless they change their ways, we will take our shopping dollars elsewhere.
