Walmart funds leftist homosexual groups and perverse LGBTQueer “pride” parades, markets “gay” products like “Heather Has Two Mommies”
Folks, below is a piece I wrote earlier this month for LifeSiteNews, an excellent pro-family and pro-life website (subscribe to their e-list HERE). Walmart’s capitulation to the demands of the leftist, anti-Christian–and very pro-Democrat–Human
If Walmart can go “all gay,” any corporation can, and sadly the Bentonville, Arkansas-based retail giant’s moral capitulation shows how complete and entrenched America’s godless homosexual revolution has become. Nevertheless, liberal (pro-) LGBTQ “snowflakes” in post-Trump distress everywhere are acting as if the USA is on the verge of becoming like Saudi Arabia–despite Trump being the most PRO-homosexual Republican presidential nominee ever!
As it has in recent years, Walmart again sponsored New York City’s homosexual-transgender-sadomasochism (LGBTQueer) “pride” parade in 2016 (see page 35 of the “NYC Pride Guide”; also, see AFTAH’s photo-story exposé on the 2015 NYC “pride” parade sponsored by Walmart). And Walmart was among the corporate sponsors at a far-left-biased “International LGBT Leaders” conference (attended by this writer) in Washington, D.C., earlier this month, put on by the Gay and Lesbian Victory Institute.
Despite its pro-disordered-sex-and-gender “philanthropy,” Walmart received a “Nice” (not “Naughty”) rating from our friends at American Family Association for celebrating Christmas, and was praised as a “pro-religious liberty” company by AFA in 2015. That confused some AFA followers who noted Walmart’s newfound support of homosexual “marriage” post-Obergefell. Moreover, Walmart reportedly fought against a religious-freedom-protection bill in its home state of Arkansas (and in other states).
Ironically, under HRC’s horribly skewed “Corporate Equality Index“ (CEI), if Walmart were to give a direct grant to AFA (or Americans For Truth), it would LOSE 25 points and fall off the CEI’s “100-percent” list (see story below). Having the leftist HRC judge corporations on homosexual and “gender” issues is about as fair as having the far-left, pro-LGBTQ Southern Poverty Law Center serve as an arbiter of “hate.” Utterly absurd, and yet the corrupt media honor both rankings and report them as objective “news.”
I’ll say this: you have to hand it to Walmart’s executives: cynically playing both sides of the LGBTQ-vs.-the-natural-family “culture war” and seemingly getting away with it. Or will they? I suppose that’s up to pro-family Americans, who correctly understand that the homosexual/transgender social-legal revolution is incompatible with the First Amendment and freedom of conscience. — Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH; @Peter LaBarbera

Walmart earns 100% gay approval rating on homosexual group’s corporate scorecard
By Peter LaBarbera
December 6, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — For the first time ever, Walmart has scored a “perfect” 100 percent ranking on a leading homosexual lobby group’s “corporate scorecard,” meaning that to keep its score the retail giant will now cover transsexual employees’ “sex reassignment surgeries” as part of its healthcare coverage.
The decidedly anti-social-conservative “Corporate Equality Index” (CEI) is produced by Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the world’s largest homosexual-bisexual-transgender lobby organization. Companies are ranked by whether or not they adopt pro-LGBTQ workplace and giving policies. From year to year, HRC usually makes the criteria more stringent, thus driving corporations to adopt ever-more radical pro-LGBTQ internal policies and commitments to maintain their “perfect” scores.
Walmart’s new 100 percent score (up from 90 percent on last year’s scorecard) marks its steadily growing embrace of LGBTQ advocacy at the expense of its wholesome, pro-family image. In recent years, the corporation has begun funding “gay pride” parades, in which lewd behavior is paraded in front of children, and homosexual activist groups like the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund.
Lose points for backing natural marriage
Moreover, according to HRC’s biased “Index,” corporations are punished (losing 25 points) for giving to pro-natural marriage groups and causes while they are rewarded for giving money to LGBTQ causes. According to “Criterion 5 of the “Index,”
In recent years, to accrue points toward a 100 percent ranking, major corporations like Walmart have stepped up their giving of large grants to LGBTQ organizations and events.
HRC announced on page 6 of its 111-page CEI report:

Walmart settles with “gay” legal group
Meanwhile, Walmart announced that it has settled a class-action lawsuit with another homosexual lobby group to pay past compensation to its homosexual employees who had become same-sex “married” between 2011 and 2013 but were denied family health benefits.
A Walmart executive, Sally Welborn, senior vice president, global benefits, signaled that the settlement is part of the retailer’s pro-LGBTQ ethos (Walmart did not admit guilt as part of the terms):
GLAD states that the number of people collecting from the class-action lawsuit is “expected to include no more than a few thousand current and former Walmart associates. Walmart employs nearly 1.5 million associates in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.”
Walmart plays both sides
Interestingly, unlike many other corporations adopting pro-homosexual policies, Walmart plays both sides of the social-issues “culture war.” It does this by cultivating good relations with both homosexual activists like HRC and Christian conservative organizations like American Family Association (AFA).
Last year, Walmart received high praise from one of the most prominent and respected pro-family leaders in America, Tim Wildmon, son of Don Wildmon, who founded the Tupelo, Mississippi-based AFA. See this 2015 article, where AFA president Tim Wildmon gives Walmart a “perfect 100” on its “Corporate Religious Liberty Index” because of Walmart’s answers “demonstrating that the corporation respects and values religious freedoms.”
Other “perfect” pro-LGBTQ corporations
The following corporations are among those that joined Walmart as Fortune 500 companies scoring 100 percent on HRC-skewed “Corporate Equality Index” (2017):
Ben and Jerry’s
Crate & Barrel
Hallmark Cards Inc.
Hyundai Motor America
John Hancock Financial Services
Johnson & Johnson

Help AFTAH Counter the “LGBTQ” Revolution!
Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) is one of the few organizations in the world that directly fights and exposes the homosexual-bisexual-lesbian-transgender-sadomasochism-pansexual-[insert latest perversion here] agenda. Please help us defend moral Truth and expose the reality of the destructive anti-Christian LGBTQueer movement. Help us today with your donation–go HERE to give safely online with our user-friendly form!
AFTAH is the conscience of the pro-family movement on the “gay agenda.” We simply don’t do “PC.” For example, we don’t pretend like some other pro-family groups that the homosexual “marriage” debate is somehow NOT about homosexuality. (Of course it is.) And while we love sinners as Jesus does, and condemn real “hate” (toward anyone), we do not “love” or respect homosexualism, transsexualism–or any other branch of deviant “gay” sexual ideology–which is at war with God’s plan for sex, marriage and family. Sin is neither a “civil right” nor the basis for a healthy identity. And AFTAH celebrates godly EX-“gay” change.
