Sears is Selling Hard-Corn Porn. Tell them to STOP!

posted by Donna Calvin

I received a very disturbing alert from The American Family Association. I took action, and I hope you will too.  This is what AFA wrote in their TAKE ACTION ALERT.

Under the new leadership of Chairman Edward Lampert, Sears is now offering hard-core pornographic DVDs and music. Not just a few x-rated products, but scores of them!

AFA ordered one of the DVDs to see if it really came from Sears. It did! It was mailed to us in a Sears envelope, with a Sears shipping label, from a Sears distribution center. See it here.

Not only does Sears’ website allow children to view its pornographic offerings online, it will sell them to children. During our online check-out process, we were never asked to verify our age.

I hope you will take my word for it, but if you must see the proof, AFA has set up a Sears Project page with more information, including a short video showing AFA navigating Sears’ website quickly and easily to access hundreds of explicit products. Warning: the material is extremely graphic and offensive, although it has been edited by us.

Technology allows Sears to remove and stop selling these products within minutes, if they want too. AFA has tried more than a half-dozen times to reach out to Sears quietly and professionally. Basically, their single response was, “We’re going to keep on selling them!”

Take Action

Unless Sears hears from you, they will continue to sell hardcore pornography. If you can only do one thing, please:

Please call your local store manager and politely ask him to pass your concern along to his district manager. You can find your local store phone number here, or in your local yellow pages.

Additional steps you can take to make your voice heard:

1. Send an email in your own words using Sears’ website feedback form.
2. Make a call to the Sears’ Public Relations Department at 847-286-8371, option 1.
3. Make a personal phone call to Sears, so your concerns are clearly understood. Call Sears’ corporate headquarters directly and ask to leave a message with Chairman Edward Lampert’s office. The number is 847-286-2500.

It is very important that you forward this alert to your friends and family members.

THE FOLLOWING IS WHAT I EMAILED TO SEARS.  I HOPE YOU WILL CONTACT THEM TOO.

Sears has been a family standard for years. I’ve been shopping at Sears for more than 60 years. The first TV my parents ever bought in 1948 was from Sears. However, under the new leadership of Chairman Edward Lampert, Sears is now offering hard-core pornographic DVDs and music. Not just a few x-rated products, but scores of them! Not only does Sears’ website allow children to view its pornographic offerings online, it will sell them to children. Technology allows Sears to remove and stop selling these products within minutes, if they want too. The American Family Association has tried more than a half-dozen times to reach out to Sears quietly and professionally. Basically, Sear’s single response was, “We’re going to keep on selling them!” That is why you are hearing from us. I hope you listen to my concerns and that they are clearly understood. Stop selling porn or you’re not going to be getting the business of families.  You have until June 30th to get rid of the porn.

The part that I agree with is that all Christian parents are called to raise up our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. “Billos” is right there. Where I disagree with “Billos” is that as parents while we are called to provide the cleanest environment for our children to grow up in at home, that environment extends far beyond the walls of our homes. For example, we know we should not keep candy bars on the coffee table to tempt our children with 24/7? Of course not! We know we should not play on TV in front of our children the beheading of Danny Pearl by Muslim terrorists? I hardly need to mention such extremes! We know as parents we need to take responsibility for what goes into our children because we know what goes in eventually will come out. However, it doesn’t end at our front porches. Pornography is the extreme of the extreme! It does not even reflect true, married sexual relations. What is in the stores, what’s available on-line, in schools, in libraries, in books, in the entertainment industry, on the radio, in the movie theaters and on the streets have much influence on our children and allowing them to be exposed to the extremes of pornography is insane and most sinful. We are called by God to try our best to keep those extended environments free from evilness and sin-filled garbage as well as our homes. Why isn’t it just as important to try to keep a godly, clean environment for our children every where, not just inside our homes? Moreover, I don’t see that AFA people are slashing and burning anything. They are not saying, burn the DVD’s. They are saying, don’t allow them to be made available to youngsters for sale on-line and in a store that has been a place where families shop since I can remember! In fact, I might add that perhaps if “Billos” hadn’t been exposed at the tender age of nine to graphic pornography, he might not be so fond of keeping porn around for other youngsters to have access to. Once it passes through the eyes and into the brain, those images are burned there forever and ever. I am a person who advocates for the free market, but I don’t advocate selling that which is contrary to God’s Immutable Laws! God decides what is good and righteous, not man! “Billos,” I implore you and everyone else reading this, take a look at the Ten Commandments and learn to live by them! They’re written in God’s Holy Word in Exodus. We cannot leave it to children to make adult decisions. “Billos” apparently gobbled up his uncle’s porn and he still remembers it vividly today and it is still obviously inflaming him. That is why we read in scripture:

“The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.” (Proverbs 29:15 KJV)

We are not to leave children to themselves. We are to called to control their environment, at home and outside. We are called to love our children, not to leave them to their own devices.

I guess I don’t really see the big deal, nor what the fuss is about. “Raise up a child in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not depart from it”. Teaching your children whats right and wrong is priority. If they’re looking at porn you can only blame yourself, not Sears. Wasting your time going around slashing and burning every questionable thing you may find is no way to properly live the life that God intended for us. There are so many MORE IMPORTANT issues that threaten our children, folks! This is typical intolerant nanny state stupidity. I found my Uncles porn stash when I was 9 years old and ..well..I’m sexually normal with healthy relationships. Its like the AFA never wants their kids to actually grow up and develop the internal skills to cope with the world.
