Anti-Wal-Mart Group Asks, What Would Jesus Do?

"Their ad campaign is shameful, particularly in this season of peace and goodwill. While the union leaders are wasting their members' dues on an attack campaign, Wal-Mart is benefiting tens of millions of working families through its low prices and quality job opportunities. And once again this year, Wal-Mart is partnering with the Salvation Army in its red kettle drive to raise millions of dollars for worthy causes."

"When we celebrate Christmas, we mark the birth of Jesus Christ who gave the moral imperative of the Golden Rule, a rule that should challenge Christian consumers to consider where they shop. That should challenge Wal-Mart to change its corporate practices for the better."

WakeUpWal-Mart also plans to hold local candlelight vigils and a day of prayer at Wal-Mart stores in over 40 cities and 24 states, including Florida, Alabama, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Mississippi, and Missouri.
