Letting Heaven Sink In
I was about to close down the 'puter for the night. I decided that checking Facebook might illicit some chuckles or righteous indignation. I scrolled one last time through the "home" feed.
Amidst the many anti Trump meme's, the cute pet vids, and the "I have to have this" ads, I came across the story of a small grocery chain in Arkansas who stepped on their sanity when they posted their latest special ads in local newspapers.
I realize that Arkansas is in the heart of Bible Country. More of the faithful exist there per square mile than say here in the pucker of Maine. So it was probably not a stretch for whoever writes their copy to assume that this innocuous Christian based slogan would be welcomed.
"Heaven has a wall, a gate, and a strict immigration policy. Hell has open borders. Let that sink in."
They obviously were not prepared for the backlash. While God may indeed be a Republican, apparently many of his faithful adherents are not. They and I am guessing the few heathens living in the area got their panties in a knot.
I think it is hilarious. I think it is absolutely the best example any business should use to not mix religion and politics in their day to day activities, regardless how true this slogan is if one believes the Heaven and Hell crap.
