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.
