Unless they were a hypocrit. Walmart's actions are not compatible with Christian ideals. The direct and indirect use of slave like labor, of low wages, short hours and getting people to leave after 18 months to save on benefits and many other actions speak of an amoral enterprise whose god is money at all costs.
Walmart exploits everyone including the Chinese. I admire what the Chinese have done and how far they have come in the last thirty years. Things are still bad there, but they are moving in the right direction at least. Walmart is known to be cheap and wants vendors to cut corners on human rights, pollution and quality.
You begrudge Sunday only Christians while you slander, slur, and smear WMT 7 days a week. At least the Sunday people get it right one day a week.
How is your smear campaign against WMT living according to Christian values ? Does your ends justify your means in your self defined Christian world ?
You claim to live by Christian values while you seek to deny Chinese people economic advantages you yourself already enjoy.
That you do to the least of his brothers, you do unto him as well.
And lastly, you begrudge the Walton heirs for their generosity and use yourself as the benchmark they should measure against.
Does "judge ye not" sound familiar ?
Does "render unto Ceasar" sound familiar ?
You are a false Christian which is worse than a Sunday or EC Christian.
PS Buffet, Gates and Soros gave a far bigger percentage of their wealth while they were alive. She gave far more to her family than they did to theirs. What about her abused employees? Did she ever speak up and try to support American industry and create good jobs? A hypocrit Christian if there ever was one.
She gave all of her wealth. All of it.
Helen Walton, 87, died Thursday in Bentonville, Ark., home to the retail giant founded in 1962.
Her Wal-Mart stake is worth about $16.4 billion, ranking her No. 29 on the most recent Forbes list of the world's richest people. She had long planned to leave her stock to the Walton Family Foundation, the family has said.
Costco practices Christian values. Just listen to the chairman and it makes you realize what scum the Walton family of pseudo Christian is. Please don't make any comments if you haven't seen his interviews because if you haven't you don't know and would be commenting from ignorance.
Why don't istead of giving guilt money, just take care of their workers better? You didn't answer my question about Sunday morning Christians? They remind me of the actions of the Walton family. What percentage of their wealth have they given. Very little compared to Buffet, Gates and Soros. In fact almost nothing compared to them. I have given more percentage wise and I know many that have.
1) You state your Christian then quit judging Christians for shopping and working for Walmart. Most people do what they have to so they can survive.
2) I have stated many times I regret Kresge/Kmart taking legal action aganist the bluelaws which closed stores like Kmart and Walmart on Sunday and this law was declared illegal due to Kmarts actions.
3) The Walton family are Presbyterian and have donated millions to the Church and the giving spirit which Walmart has lived by is the results of Ms Helens request to Mr Sam.
