Walmart is known for its falling prices. Turns out the mega retail chain is also about to be known for selling a book that says you can be delivered from homosexuality.
Staff members from QSaltLake bring this news, noting that over 100 Walmart stores are set to carry a book by Mormon author Janice Barrett Graham, where Graham champions ex-gay therapy and curing people of their homosexuality. The book, Chased By An Elephant: The Gospel Truth About Today's Stampeding Sexuality, is intended to "shed the clear light of truth on today's dark and tangled ideas about male and female, proper gender roles, the law of chastity, and the God-given sexual appetite."
The book also includes an introduction by Janice Barrett Graham's son, Andrew, who professes that the "gay lifestyle" is predatory and deviant.
Is this the type of written word that Walmart should be selling on its shelves? Send the retailer a message that giving this book the green light was a bad decision, and that they should reconsider their decision to sell a book that flies in the face of science. Ex-gay therapy has been condemned the world over by major scientific and medical associations. It shouldn't thrive on the shelves of Walmart, either.
