Wal Mart has been a bastion of free speech and consumer choice in the past. This is the chain that has refused to carry a variety of different music CDs by Marilyn Manson, Snoop Doggy Dog, and that in-the-closet gang-banger, Sheryl Crow. The chain is currently turning a deaf ear (or perhaps the other cheek?) to the concerns over this game.
Of course Wal Mart should carry this despicable game – especially right now during this season of love and hope in which the Christian world celebrates the birth of the Prince of Peace. And Wal Mart should also stock their CD bins with rap tunes and their book shelves with erotica. But they are about “community standards” and apparently, the communities Wal Mart caters to are perfectly amendable to violence and hatred, as long as it’s wrapped up in a Jesus banner.
