American Family Association told the truth, despite Sears telling customers otherwise
May 6, 2011

When AFA reported Sears was selling pornographic DVDs on its website, Sears initially told AFA supporters that it was untrue. Finally, Sears called AFA on May 6 after AFA supporters flooded the company with calls and emails. During the call, Sears again vigorously denied they were selling pornography. However, AFA clearly showed Sears the material on their very own website! When Sears realized they were wrong, they issued this statement to AFA: “We sincerely apologize to any customers who were offended. Our agreements with our vendors prohibit content that is pornographic or sexually explicit in nature. We are removing these items that do not meet our guidelines. We regularly review our processes to ensure compliance by our vendors, and we encourage our customers and community to help us flag any items that they believe might violate our guidelines.” Within the space of a half-hour, Sears removed hundreds of pornographic DVDs from its website. Because you and thousands of others chose to get involved, Sears is no longer selling pornography.

Thank you for taking action and convincing Sears to get out of the pornography business. Together, and with God’s help, we are making a difference.

[ Friends, All too often I hear that people get discouraged and they tell me that writing an email or making a call doesn’t make a difference. Here’s another example to encourage you.  It made all the difference to Sears, did it not?  It does work. Discouragement is Satan’s most effective tool. Be a Christian, Pro-Life, Conservative, Outspoken Activist! Be a laborer. The harvest is ripe. This is our time, my Christian friends, to shine the Light of Jesus Christ in a darkened nation! Be a Doer of the Word! Be the voice of righteousness!  Be a voice of the Holy Spirit crying out in the wilderness!  For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass (James 1:23 – King James Version) — Donna Calvin ]
