A couple days ago I wrote on how Sears was selling hardcore pornography on their site. It was vile filth mixed in with their movies and games. I have received follow-up.
“We sincerely apologize to any customers who were offended. Our agreements with our vendors prohibit content that is pornographic or sexually explicit in nature. We are removing these items that do not meet our guidelines. We regularly review our processes to ensure compliance by our vendors, and we encourage our customers and community to help us flag any items that they believe might violate our guidelines.”
That is a statement release by Sears after they were cornered with the truth. They had been denying that the content was on their site but an action group walked them through the site and showed them the content. The material was removed within the hour.
While the threat from Sears no longer exists, let this be a warning to parents and Christians out there that we have to be vigilant. We must be careful and then when we find error, we must do everything in our power to protect those in danger. Because of hundreds of calls and e-mails, Sears was made aware of a problem (they say) they were unaware of and that door to the gates of death was shut. We can still have an impact in the fight against pornography. You are still able to protect those you love.
