Sam Walton, the founder of Walmart and Sam’s Club was a strong family man who believed in traditional family values.
He built his multi-billion-dollar corporate empire on those family values.
In 1992, Walton died from a form of bone cancer, turning his empire over to others who did not fully share his strong family values.
Some are saying that if Sam Walton knew what his predecessors have done to his company, including a new ad campaign that features a dating gay couple, which clearly goes against Sam’s strong family values.
OneNewsNow – Corporate attack on traditional marriage ‘more like a betrayal’ – Walmart has launched a “gay dating” video as part of an advertising campaign – a corporate move that the American Family Association says likely has Walmart founder Sam Walton “rolling over in his grave.”
The retail giant has posted an online video that normalizes homosexual relationships. The video – posted on Facebook – is part of an ad campaign called “Love is in the aisle: A dating show at Walmart.” The ad features “Pat” and “Andy,” two homosexual men on a “blind date” as they meet at the store, embrace, and then shop together. The objective, according to the video, is “to see if love is in the aisle.”
OneNewsNow spoke with AFA first vice president Buddy Smith. “We’re very disappointed in Walmart with this video that’s actually two-and-a-half minutes long; so it’s not just a few seconds of an ad that normalizes homosexual relationships,” he says…
I have friends who worked at Walmart and they say that many things changed after Sam Walton died and most of the changes were not good.
Not only did the new leaders of Walmart turn from the traditional family values of their founder, but they also abandoned their loyalty to their employees.
Walmart has changed from a family and employee friendly corporation to an anti-family and anti-employee company.
