After a local business owner publicly denounced the Christian way of life, Christians in the area have largely reacted with indifference.
Businessman Frank Wallace announced during his guest spot on a morning radio program Thursday that he would not include the idea of Christian values in his advertising nor would he cater to anyone who held them. He went on to state that anyone who didn’t like this was free to buy from another business.
The response from Christians around town has been calm as many say they will continue to shop at Wallace’s Grocery despite the rant against Jesus.
Martha Grant, a devout churchgoer and long time patron of the store, stated “we need to respect other people’s opinions, no matter what so long as they aren’t promoting laws which discriminate against Christianity. He has a right to his opinion and we shouldn’t be upset over that.”
There are some though who are gearing up to begin boycotting the store. At the forefront of those efforts is John Woodard. He states “why should I give my money to someone who opposes Christian values? When we buy from his store we are effectively saying that his views are completely acceptable. This is why I’m leading the boycott against Wallace’s.”
Some are even going out of their way to buy from the grocery store just to spite boycott efforts.
This is a developing story.
