Last Saturday night on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” the network aired a violent and gory segment mocking Jesus and the Christian faith. Jesus was portrayed as a vengeful murderer bent on killing the Romans who crucified him! According to Scripture He actually said (while hanging on the cross) “Father forgive them for they know not what they do!” Saturday Night Live has a long history of attacking the Christian faith, and both Sears and K-Mart are unapologetic in their sponsorship of these anti-Christian segments.
Sears Holdings owns both Sears and K-Mart, and they have been asked to pull their sponsorship from Saturday Night Live, and apologise to those they have offended. Sears Facebook page contains dozens of apologies to customers for poor customer service or faulty products, but there is not a single apology to the hundreds of Christians who contacted them about their advertising! Do you think they would hold the same position if Saturday Night Live did a segment offensive to Islam? It seems the Christian faith is fair game in the Country that was founded on Christian values, and has “In God We Trust” on its money!
I have contacted K-Mart and Sears and let them know that I will no longer be a customer of their businesses. I have an extended family of over 80 and I will get the word out to them as well. Call the Sears corporate headquarters number at 847-286-2500, and let them know your feelings on their tepid response to the Christian community. You can also visit the Sears Facebook page and leave a comment there. If corporations listen to anything it’s the sound of money leaving their business. Maybe then they will get the message that it isn’t a good business practice to attack the Christian faith.
