Oh No - not Wal-mart too!!

My brother had read/heard that Wal-mart was join the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and wanted to make sure it was the truth! Here is the e-mail below.

Is this article true?Wal-Mart asks for, and receives, permission to join homosexual marriagegroupWal-Mart comes out of the closet

Dear Brian,Wal-Mart, the largest retailer in the world, has asked for and receivedpermission to join the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. The NGLCCis a leading promoter of homosexual marriage. Read "Wal-Mart Partners With Gay and Lesbian Group" Although Wal-Mart has never excluded homosexuals from being employees,customers, or suppliers, the company wanted to be more closely identifiedwith promoting the homosexual agenda. Wal-Mart is now a "corporate member"of the NGLCC, putting their approval on the NGLCC's efforts to abolish thedefinition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. A Wal-Martvice president will serve as an advisor to the NGLCC, helping them promotehomosexual marriage.Wal-Mart agreed to give $25,000 to the NGLCC and to pay for two conferencesscheduled by NGLCC. Also, Wal-Mart will give homosexual-owned businessesspecial treatment when making purchases. Companies not owned by homosexualswill be moved down the list.NGLCC called Wal-Mart's action "part of the company's ongoing commitment toadvancing diversity (homosexuality) among all of its associate, supplier andcustomer bases." Wal-Mart is offering the same kind of support for homosexual marriage whichFord Motor Company has been giving to homosexual groups for years.

Bless your heart if you were taken in by that sub-standard hoax; be brave and contact Wal-Mart yourself and learn the truth. Sadly, I expect you know it is not true, and you just don't care that He knows you know.

Sydney - thanks for leaving your comment. I did do my research and this blog of correspondence between my brother and Wal-mart is an actual e-mail. I would be glad to forward that e-mail to you, but you left an anonymous blog comment. Here is my brother's quote, "Yes, Leigh, the answer I received was directly from Wal-Mart corporate as an answer to my email/question of Is this true?" My brother is constantly revealing hoax e-mails that "we" send out from time to time. This was his very own dialogue with the corporation of Wal-mart. I have no idea your stance on this matter, but i hope this at least just lets you and others aware of where Wal-mart stands. I am so proud of my brother going the extra mile to get a direct quote from Wal-mart and not just assuming.

Have a wonderful day!
