Hello Americans, I’m Todd Starnes. Stand by for news and commentary next.
Walmart is facing national outrage after a store in Millington, Tennessee refused service to a pro-life organization.
The executive director of Confidential Care Ministries had wanted to purchase $100 gift cards for some of their clients – newborn mothers.
But when the person at the checkout counter learned that the gift cards were for a pro-life ministry, he stopped the transaction.
“I’m not comfortable with that,” he said.
He said it was against company policy.
Cathy Waterbury – the executive director – pushed back – but the Walmart worker held firm.
She told the Walmart worker he violated her rights.
“It’s the first time I’ve ever experienced discrimination,” the pro-life ministry leader told Van Horn.
“These are moms that just want our help and we just want to bless them with a gift,” Waterbury said.
She went to a nearby Kroger and they were more than happy to sell gift cards.
Mrs. Waterbury called Walmart’s corporate complaint line – but she was told the issue did not merit further discussion.
I disagree. When a major company discriminates against a pro-life ministry — it should become a national conversation.
And that starts with picking up the phone and calling the Walmart in Millington, Tennessee.
