Just when you think that Wal-Mart couldn't possibly go any lower, the company stoops to even new depths. Several stores are now carrying Chased by an Elephant, the Gospel Truth about Today's Stampeding Sexuality, a book by Janice Barrett Graham, that claims gay people can be cured of homosexuality.
According to the Standards of Liberty Web site, the book is available at 104 Walmart stores in the Intermountain West, the Brigham Young University bookstore, and through its sister sites.
"This charming, unique, and important book is a must-read for leaders and parents to use as they see fit that stunningly and resoundingly echos the truths and warnings presented in President Boyd K. Packer's conference talk this past Sunday," the announcement said. "For the sake of our children and youth, we can no longer afford to be silent on this topic. Given the licentious world around them, they need to be purposely taught the correct information and attitudes concerning human sexuality and God's law of chastity."
The Grahams claim that their son, Andrew, successfully changed his sexual orientation and is now a happily married man.
In case anyone is counting, that's Reason #72,496 not to shop at Wal-Mart.
