    Wackos. Might as well shut the company down if they were to give in to this nonsense.

      Yeah, because no person of any intelligence ever had faith in a higher power or the belief that maybe we’re here for some sort of purpose.

      I attend church with my family because it gives me a sense of peace. I see how happy my children are with the activities and sense of community they have found in our church.

      I do not judge others who choose not to believe, nor do I believe my way is the only way. I am a Christian because I believe in the overall message of peace, love, forgiveness, and goodwill, which are doctrines central to most of the world’s major religions. There are parts of the Bible I take literally and others I take metaphorically and in the context of when it was written.

      I’m not against gay marriage or homosexuality. I’ve been to Texas a few times and met some great people there and some who I couldn’t bother with. I enjoy heavy metal music (and am listening to Motley Crue as I type this, believe it or not). I despise abortion but believe it needs to an option for situations of rape, incest, or the health of the mother (a painful personal experience led to this conclusion). I’ve voted for both Republicans AND Democrats for president. I also don’t believe you NEED to be a religious person in order to be a GOOD person.

      I’m happy for you that you are so enlightened that you feel compelled to belittle anyone who may believe in something. Please, grow up.

        You appear to be a very normal human being that these people are afraid of. Excellent comments.

      I swear, atheists like you are by far the worst kind of people. I’m not religious by any means, but the petty and childish insults aimed at belittling people that don’t think like you are entirely the reason atheists have a bad reputation.

    If you don’t like what they sell, don’t invest in the company.

    Nonsense it is……and “buttus interruptus” as well. On the other hand, if it wasn’t for people like these, we wouldn’t have those great photos of “Wal-Mart Shoppers” to laugh at!!

    Why invest in a company if you dont like their business practices?
    Oh, thats right, it keeps the courts busy with lawsuits.
    Good grief!

      What the hell does that scripture have to do with this article? You sound like some kind of fruitcake.

    More of the PC Nazi’s run amok. Essentially, these people seek to circumvent the rights of free people to purchase things that they feel are offensive by mob thuggery. This is social engineering posing as religious outrage, when in fact those so called religious people seek to deprive others of their natural rights. God help us, literally.

    Fun Fact of the Day: The black and white “Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics” stickers that began appearing on album jackets starting in the 1990s are called “Tipper Stickers” because of Tipper Gore’s public crusade against potty language. In fact, Tipper’s crew is still active to this day, involving themselves in such critical matters as being offended by album jacket art.

          Zappa’s interviews regarding the PMRC and the censorship they wanted are absolute gold. Frank Zappa was one of the most intelligent musicians to fight back against the PMRC.

    Ha! How ridiculous are they that they think $2,000 worth of Walmart stock gives them the right to dictate their views to the company as paramount importance.
