An apology for Wal-Mart, part 1

Last night I searched through the internet looking for information on Wal-Mart's IS technology. While I was searching, I came across a lot of anti-WM people making "intelligent" complaints about WM. As a WM associate, I am offended. As a reasonable, intelligent, logical person I am appalled. There was not one single logical argument against them. Not one. There were many unfounded, unsupported accusations, many heated, passionate statements of dislike, but nothing worth listening to.

I have heard these before, and I have read quite a few, and I am sick and tired of people who don't have a clue what they are talking about making snap judgments about a company that hasn't done anything wrong, because it has done many things right!

more to come . . .

Yes, very true!
In fact, I have come across a site just like it a year ago. A majority of websites should not be allowed on the internet. Who and what can prevent poor quality websites to operate?

Nothing. Its the great thing and the bad thing about having freedom of speech. For every quality piece of expression, there are bound to be thousands of horrible ones. No worries though. As often as not, rants like those are seen for what they are.

As my brother pointed out, nothing can be done, and nothing should be done to restrict the content put out for the public to read. Instead, this should be seen as a challange to the church to reach the hearts and minds of the writers, when that happens, they will restrict themselves.

It all comes down to accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and the change will come through faith and obedience!
It takes boldness to plant seeds for God but it must be done in His timing and way.
Just think how this world would be if everyone stopped planting?
That is why witnessing is so important!!
