Would Jesus shop at Wal-Mart?

Which is more ungodly, Wal-Mart’s agency review or its business practices? In this new ad from Wake Up Wal-Mart, pastor Joe Phelps, a Baptist minister from Louisville, Ky., questions the morality of shopping at the retailer, particularly during the Christmas season. “Jesus said, ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,’ ” Phelps says. “But if these are our values, can we continue to shop at Wal-Mart without insulting God?” Also, some 130 evangelical ministers have also written a joint letter to Wal-Mart CEO Lee Scott, urging him to make Wal-Mart “a Golden Rule company.”
