Proof We Are Not Helpless in the Culture War

Wal-Mart had jumped into the Culture War with both feet- on the side of the homosexual agenda. The American Family Association had called for a boycott of Wal-Mart this Friday through Sunday. This is the busiest shopping weekend of the year.

Many predicted that Wal-Mart would just shrug it off. They have a reputation of digging their heels in. They like to win. They make calculated, well thought out moves long in advance before they act. They are a gigantic international company, and some group of nuts (like you and me) headed by an old preacher in Mississippi was not going to change their direction. The fact that they bought a glut of ads on Christian radio stations throughout the south only strengthened the view that they were going to try to muscle their way past the boycott.

Imagine what happened when the Ad Execs were told to buy up ad time on Christian radio stations in Arkansas, home state for Wal-Mart. The execs could only report back that this would be impossible, as almost every christian radio station in the state is run by AFA! They don't take ads, and if they did it would not be from Wal-Mart!

Somehow, the Titanic turned on a dime. The announced boycott was only two days old before Wal-Mart announced that it would no longer involve itself in controversial issues. AFA has declared itself satisfied with the change and called off the boycott. Do I trust Wal-Mart, or more specifically the homosexual activists who have wormed their way into the corporate structure and have an agenda over and above helping the company prosper? No. They will try again. But now we see that it is possible to stop them.

The main thing we should take out of this is that we are not helpless in the face of cultural decline. If we band together in groups like the AFA, we can make a difference. We don't have to take the poor quality of political leaders we have been offered either. More about that in a future edition.

You have a "Ted Haggard"-like obession with homosexuals. Something you want to tell us?
