A grocery store sparked controversy after sending out a weekly sales flier that appeared to make a pro-border wall political statement.
According to CBN News, Mac’s Fresh Market – which has locations in Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi – was under fire this week after they sent out a weekly advertisement adorned with a quote of the week that read, “Heaven has a wall, a gate, and a strict immigration policy. Hell has open borders. Let that sink in.”
The timely statement reportedly in sighted anger in some people. The store’s owner Reggy McDaniel said some people called him racist and one person even sent him a death threat.
One person named Pete Abbotsford criticized the store on Facebook writing, “How about we build a wall around your store to protect people from your racism and fake religion? You are what’s wrong with Louisiana. Never, ever, will I refer anyone to your so-called ‘store’”
Another person called Nicholas Biegel wrote, “Hells open to whomever wrote this ad.”
Yet another person named Celia S. Valada criticized the store calling the ad maker a “bigot.” Valada wrote, “Theological scholar, or just another bigot using Religion as a weapon? This is no different than how extremeists (sic) use Islam to oppress others.”
Despite the onslaught of angry comments, McDaniel told the Christian Post that between “85 and 90 percent” of the feedback was positive.
