Operation Save America will be boycotting and protesting at Wal-Mart stores because Wal-Mart refuses to discriminate against gays and lesbians.
Why? Why do they think they have some God-given right to “save” America? And, from whom are they saving America?
From the men and women who pay the higher taxes because they can’t get married and file married tax returns?
From the hardworking people who put food on the table for their families?
From the millions of churchgoing gay and lesbian Christians who pray to God everyday for the souls of those who have been misled by hatred and fear?
From the ones to whom Jesus himself referred when He said, “Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.” (Luke 6:22)?
Yeah, those are the ones that Operation Save America wants to “save America” from.
But, what about the big businesses that pollute our soil?
Or, the factories that do not pay a living wage?
Or, better yet, why aren’t they boycotting Wal-Mart because of the financial drain it places on our state’s (and in turn, country’s) economy because its employees do not have healthcare?
Where were the self-righteous groups such as Operation Save America and the American Family Association when the rest of us were boycotting Wal-Mart?
And, one last question, the average Wal-Mart shopper isn’t college graduated. Go on any day and you won’t see the part of society that is driving a Lexus to work. Wal-Mart’s prices are so low that many of the families who shop there really can’t afford to go somewhere else. The flip side to this is that these are the same families who are counted among Operation Save America and the American Family Association’s members. They really should’ve kept that in mind before they called for a boycott of a store at which the majority of their members shop. They won’t get far with this boycott.
People only care about “morals” when it doesn’t affect their wallet.
