STOP SELLING BOOKS & VIDEOS ON BEASTIALITY and OTHER PORNOGRAPHIC ITEMS

WITH SEARS' WEB SITE, A COUPLE OF CLICKS TAKES YOU TO  HARDCORE PORNOGRAPHY!

Sears in its online store has offered a wide range of nudity, from pornographic videos such as “Curse of the Pink Panties 2″ and “Hot & Exotic” to “art posters” such as one that revealed four couples with arms and legs intertwined who appear to be wearing nothing but each other and some foamy waves.

Now the store that once served as an American icon for families has kicked its offerings up a notch, featuring bestiality in its latest round of promotions.

“Last year, Sears promised to stop selling these type products,” AFA said in its alert to constituents about the problem today. “In our subsequent monitoring of sears.com, AFA found that Sears resumed selling sexually explicit products.”

In a statement by the AFA, officials said, “Along with explicit nudity, Sears now adds bestiality to its website.”

The statement continues, “After our last Action Alert in May, Sears assured AFA it was updating filtering equipment and enforcing strict guidelines to prevent sexually explicit products being available on their websites.

AFA took Sears spokesman at their word and … they shouldn’t have. Sears made the same promise in 2010. They broke their word then too.

Less than two months after Sears’ latest promise on May 2012, the pornography has returned,” the organization said.

Explained AFA, “But that’s not the worst of it. Sears also sells books on bestiality and zoophilia. Titled ‘Dearest Pet, On Bestiality’ and “Bestiality and Zoophilia: Sexual Relations with Animals,’ these books are ‘how to’ manuals for people who want to have sex with animals.”

The warning continued, “I don’t want to be too graphic, but they contain descriptions, drawings and sketches beyond belief.”

The family organization said technology allows Sears to “remove and stop selling these products within minutes, if company executives want to. … Unless Sears hears from you, the company will continue to sell hardcore pornography!

      This is cruel & inhumane treatment for animals. Strictly my opinion & God's. I can't think of a product that I need to purchase that isn't sold by a company that does not promote this nasty behavior. I'm sure there are companies that look at morality besides profit. Maybe you should read some of what you're selling so you can see why it is be-

      ing protested. Please consider this & thank you

      You stopped selling porn once, then started again. I am sorely disappointed but will not spend any money at Sears until you pull the porn for good.
