Wal-Mart has Joined
the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce-Truth!
Wal-Mart is Donating 5% of All
Online Sales to a Homosexual Group in Washington D.C.-Fiction!
Summary of the eRumor: A couple of messages say that Wal-Mart
has become a member of the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of
Commerce and is linking arms with that group to promote homosexual
marriage and that Wal-Mart has agreed to give 5% of all sales online to
a Washington D.C. gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender group.
The Truth: According to both Wal-Mart and
the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), it is true
that Wal-Mart has become a member of the NGLCC.
The report that all online sales for Wal-Mart are going to a Washington
D.C.group is not true.
Although Wal-Mart has not taken an official position on the issue of
same-sex marriage, the NGLCC is harshly critical of what it calls
efforts by the "far right" to write discrimination into the
constitution with efforts like the Federal Marriage Amendment, which
would define marriage as between a man and a woman and applauded
congress for turning it down.
A release by the NGLCC on August 21, 2006 says that Wal-Mart's Dee
Breazeale, vice president of divisional merchandise, SAMíS CLUB
Jewelry, will be serving on the NGLCC's Corporate Advisory
Council. The release describes the council as "...composed of
NGLCC corporate partners whose mission is to discuss issues upon which
members of the NGLCC and CAC work together to educate Corporate America
and the public on the economic benefits of providing a diverse workplace
and creating mutually beneficial relationships with the LGBT and LGBT-friendly
business community." (LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual,
and transsexual.) The release also says that Wal-Mart has
sponsored two conferences for the NGLCC.
Other members of the NGLCC include IBM, Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase,
American Airlines, Intel Corporation, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, Lehman
Brothers, Motorola, Travelport, Merrill Lynch, American Express, Cisco
Systems, Avis, Orbitz, Intuit, Kodak, Fannie Mae, Millennium Hotels and
Resorts, and Kimpton.
Regarding the online sales eRumor, Wal-Mart told TruthOrFiction.com that
the Washington D.C. gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender group is
simply one of many that applied to be an affiliate with Wal-Mart and to
have links on its website that would sell product from Wal-Mart
online. The affiliates get 5% of whatever is sold through the
links. Wal-Mart says the group has been an affiliate since 2002
and as of 11/10/06 has sold only about $41 in products.
A real example of the eRumor as it has
appeared on the Internet:
Wal-Mart asks for, and receives, permission to join homosexual
Read "Wal-Mart Partners With Gay and Lesbian
Wal-Mart, the largest retailer in the world, has asked for and received
permission to join the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.
The NGLCC is a leading promoter of homosexual marriage.
Although Wal-Mart has never excluded homosexuals from
being employees, customers, or suppliers, the company wanted to be more
closely identified with promoting the homosexual agenda. Wal-Mart is now
a "corporate member" of the NGLCC, putting their approval on
the NGLCC's efforts to abolish the definition of marriage as the union
of one man and one woman. A Wal-Mart vice president will serve as an
advisor to the NGLCC, helping them promote homosexual marriage.
Wal-Mart agreed to give $25,000 to the NGLCC and to
pay for two conferences scheduled by NGLCC. Also, Wal-Mart will give
homosexual-owned businesses special treatment when making purchases.
Companies not owned by homosexuals will be moved down the list.
NGLCC called Wal-Mart's action "part of the
company's ongoing commitment to advancing diversity (homosexuality)
among all of its associate, supplier and customer bases."
Wal-Mart is offering the same kind of support for
homosexual marriage which Ford Motor Company has been giving to
homosexual groups for years.

on the Friday and Saturday following Thanksgiving. Time is short. Act
Help recruit 1,000,000 families who
will agree not to shop at Wal-Mart or Sam's Club (owned by Wal-Mart) on
the Friday and Saturday following Thanksgiving. Here's why:
In a show of support to help homosexuals legalize same-sex marriage,
Wal-Mart has agreed to automatically donate 5% of online sales directly
to the Washington DC Community Center for Gay, Lesbian Bisexual and
Transgender People. The cash donation will come from online purchases
made at Wal-Mart through the homosexual group's website. This move
follows Wal-Mart's joining the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of
Commerce and agreeing to give generous financial help to that
Every purchase made online for books, music, videos, clothing and
accessories, children's clothing and toys, and electronics at the site
will automatically send 5% of the sales to the CCBLBT People. The
agreement is an indication that Wal-Mart is totally committed to
supporting the homosexual movement.
Wal-Mart also gave a generous cash donation to the Northwest Arkansas
Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Community Center, helping to provide
a place where homosexuals can come together to "socialize."
Many observers feel it would have been a wise business decision for
Wal-Mart to remain neutral in the cultural battle over homosexual
marriage. But this was an ideological decision by Wal-Mart - not a
