When we heard about the recent changes at Wal-Mart which support the radical homosexual, pro-abortion agenda, we knew that we could not remain silent. We had recently become "official" members of their corporation by becoming members of Sam's Club.
A letter from "card-carrying" members of Sam's Club might make a difference, we thought, so we waited for a response before making a final decision about renewing our membership. Our sincere hope and desire was that Wal-Mart would repent, and that we could continue to do business with Sam's Club and Wal-Mart.
By the time our membership expired in early November, we still had not received a response. We called Gabriel back, and he asked us to send our letter again. We continued to play this game for a while, re-sending our letter repeatedly. Finally it became obvious that this Wal-Mart representative didn't even have the courage to issue a response to our letter.
Apparently the Wal-Mart corporation has come a long way since the days when founder Sam Walton said "There is only one boss: The customer. And he can fire everybody in the company from the chairman on down, simply by spending his money somewhere else."
We have made the painful decision to no longer shop at Sam's Club or Wal-Mart. Apparently many others joined us in this decision, because Wal-Mart's sales showed a decline on the busiest shopping day of the year while other retailers showed an increase. I hope you will join us in our decision to boycott Wal-Mart and Sam's Club, and in our hope that this corporation will repent of its evil agenda.

Dear Mr. Magdaleno,
After being Costco members for many years, we decided last year to become Sam's Club members.
Even though we received cash back on our Costco purchases, we have often found ourselves preferring to
shop at Sam's Club, and have purchased many items both for our organization and for our family.
Of course, we had shopped at Wal-Mart for many years before becoming Sam's Club members. Even
during this past year as Sam's Club members, we probably spend more money at Wal-Mart than at Sam's
We recently received our Sam's Club renewal notice. About the same time, we received a press
release dated August 21, 2006, from the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce announcing a
new partnership with Wal-Mart Stores, which includes the provision that Dee Breazeale, vice president of
divisional merchandise for Sam's Club Jewelry, will serve on the NGLCC Corporate Advisory Council
(CAC). We also learned that Wal-Mart has caved in to the pro-abortion lobby by agreeing to sell human
pesticides (the so-called "Morning After Pill", which destroys tiny human lives).
As parents of 11 children and leaders of a Christian ministry, we cannot in good conscience continue
to do business with a company which has chosen to promote the homosexual agenda which has become
such a great threat to our nation (please review the enclosed information about some of the negative health
issues related to homosexuality). We hope that Wal-Mart and Sam's Club will reconsider this decision,
and that you will return to your roots as a great American institution. I'm sure you know that Sam Walton
would never have supported this homosexual, pro-abortion agenda. If you choose to continue turning
away from your great heritage, we will be among the many customers who will stop shopping at Wal-Mart
and Sam's Club, and we will encourage others to join us in a boycott.
If the information we have received is in any way erroneous, we would appreciate the correction.
Of course, we understand that corporate decisions by Sam's Club and/or Wal-Mart are beyond your
control, but we thought you should be aware of this because our efforts to inform people about this will be
most intense here in Bakersfield.
In Christ's service,
Tim and Terri Palmquist, co-chairs of LifeSavers Ministries, Inc.

Medical Consequences of the Homosexual Lifestyle
The following information on the medical consequences of the homosexual lifestyle is available from
various medical publications:
(Houston Chronicle, Nov. 8, 2005) -- Men engaging in homosexual activities accounted for 64 percent
of the syphilis infections in 2004, compared with about 5 percent in 1999...increases in venereal disease
are generally assumed to be precursors of increases in the transmission of the AIDS virus, which is much
more difficult to combat..."We have very good and sound information showing increases in high-risk
behaviors among men having sex with men since 1999," fueling the increase in syphilis, Valdiserri said.
More disturbing, the rate of antibiotic resistance among men engaging in homosexual activity was 23.8
percent, eight times the rate in heterosexuals.
The following information comes from the Centers for Disease Control
Increasing cases of P&S syphilis among MSM [Men Who Have Sex with Men] are believed to be
largely responsible for the overall increases in the national syphilis rate observed since 2000. Until very
recently, CDC has not collected data by risk group. However, the male-to-female ratio for P&S syphilis
has risen steadily between 2000 and 2004 (from 1.5 to 5.9), suggesting increased syphilis transmission
among MSM. This increase occurred among all racial and ethnic groups. Additionally, CDC estimates
that MSM comprised 64 percent of P&S syphilis cases in 2004, up from 5 percent in 1999.
Medical problems which arise from homosexual activities:
parasites passed through oral-anal intercourse, hundreds of sex partners in a lifetime, almost universal
HPV infections among homosexuals, anal cancer, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, liver cancer, gonorrhea of the
rectum, throat gonorrhea, syphillis, gay bowel disease, proctitis, proctocolitis, herpes, enteritis,
HIV/AIDS, bacterial vaginosis and Hepatitis C among lesbians, alcohol abuse, domestic violence among
gay men, abuse of lesbians by lovers/partners, long-term depression or suicide, significantly reduced life
expectancy, and breast and ovarian cancer among lesbians.
In an article entitled "Major Alert for California's Parents," by Devvy Kidd, April 8, 2006,
NewsWithView.com, the following statements appear.
Besides the fact that the life span of a homosexual male is about 38 years of age, the diseases spread
by their perverted sexual preferences is massive. According to Dr. Ben Joseph, a retired internal medicine
physician in California, the discussion regarding homosexuals and lesbians should be centered on the
issue of public health, not civil rights or discrimination:
"Homosexuality is not normal. It is a filthy and germ ridden sexual perversion. It is killing people. The
health department exists to discover the sources of diseases and eradicate them. Somehow, homosexuality
with all of its harmful effects has escaped scrutiny. I know the gay community is powerful and has friends
in all the high places, but this is ridiculous. To introduce homosexuality to our public schools as just
another normal lifestyle is appalling. It's as normal as wanting to get hit over the head with a baseball bat.
"The Centers For Disease Control (CDC) reported on November 28, 2003, that AIDS infections
continue to rise among homosexuals, bisexuals, Blacks, and Hispanics. TVC's report on homosexual
diseases has been updated to reflect these new statistics. TVC's report, " Homosexual Behavior Fuels
AIDS and STD Epidemic," has been updated to reflect new statistics just published by the CDC.
"The CDC statistics show an overall increase of 5.1% in AIDS infections in the U.S. between
1999-2002. Homosexual and bisexual infection rates have increased 17%. Blacks account for 55% of
these new infections; Latinos accounted for a 25% increase. There was a 7% increase among
Anal sex is dangerous, it's filthy and the cost to human life is simply awful. Here's a short laundry list

"gays" work in restaurants and handle food?
Hepatitus A and B - a viral liver disease spread by fecal contamination (A), or by blood (B). The latter
type is considered to be transmitted "by 'parenteral injection' of saliva or semen positive for B antigen
through breaks in anal or oral mucosa during anilingual (tongue/anus) contact or proctogenital intercourse
(penile/rectal sodomy)" (New England Journal of Medicine, 1980, p.302.)
