  • Wal-Mart is FAR from christian, somebody please update this page. They are openly supportive of gay rights and contribute thousands and thousands of $$$ to gay rights organizations. Please, please, please update your page so people won’t be deceived. Thank you.
  • I am shopping my faith this Christmas and participating in the #ChristmasBUYcott—directing my hard-earned dollars to brands that are more faith compatible than their competitors.
  • “Sam Walton founded our company on the principal of ‘respect for the individual.’ It was a nice idea, but we prefer making money. So instead of caring about people, we’re going to partner with firms overseas that use underpaid labor (and in some cases, child labor) to produce goods at a lower cost. Then we’re going keep the costs low by keeping our staff as close to minimum wage as possible, keeping their hours low so we don’t have to offer benefits like insurance or vacation, all so we can attract more customers to our ‘Christian-values-based’ business.”
  • Please….! Walmart is ANTI-CHRISTIAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    We use to shop there all the time but they will not get a penny from our family. I encourage all Christians to STOP all buying from them ASAP. Walmart’s actions in INDIANA regarding protections for Christians in MARRIAGE (1 man/1 woman) was absolutely deplorable!!!!!!! They are as ANTICHRIST as they get! I would rate them with a “9” total. Please reassess; all Christians stop ALL purchasing from them until they remove the executives who drove their actions in Indiana.
  • I worked for walmart for a brief period. They are a hard company to work for because they spend days teaching you their rules and regulations and then they tell you that if you do what they teach you you will be coached which is their method of writing you up. If you are written up you lose all standard privileges for at least six months. I fired wall mart after five weeks of being a greeter and told them I already knew how conduct myself with my fellow human beings and did not need a brain washing. One thing I will tell any one who reads this. Great place to shop. Generally friendly. Not a good place to work if you are a christian who believes in what GOD teaches his children. Thank you.
