Walmart speaks against religious freedom bill

A traditional values leader believes Walmart is choosing a direction that might convince Christians to do business elsewhere. Few are happy with the company’s position.

The company recently stated that a religious freedom bill would paint the wrong message about Arkansas. Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality says that Walmart is becoming more outspoken about supporting the gay agenda.

LaBarbera, Peter“It appears that Walmart is escalating its pro-homosexual, pro-transgender advocacy,” he says. “Now they've come out against a bill that would protect religious freedom in Arkansas, and this follows their subsidizing of so-called gay pride events including parades across the country in previous years.”

The Human Rights Campaign, which is the largest pro-homosexual activist group in the nation and receives money from Walmart, has given the company a 90% ranking in terms of bowing to the homosexual agenda. However, only 1.7% of the population – and of Walmart’s potential customers - identifies as homosexual.

“It’s obvious that Walmart is pandering to homosexual and transgender activists,” he tells OneNewsNow. “But they do so at the cost of alienating their Christian, pro-family base of customers, and I'm hoping that Walmart sees the folly of its ways. In the interest of gaining gay consumers, they're going to lose a lot of Christian and moral minded consumers.” 

LaBarbera says that Christians need to tell Walmart to stop promoting homosexuality and stop funding homosexual pride events. Christians will have to deliver that message en masse to get the point across.
