Walmart may, like God, be everywhere. Yet unlike the Lord, they don't possess a Christian heart. They don't believe in biblical teachings if the following passages are still considered part of the good book:
Philippians 2:4 - Look out for Others Interests
do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.
Hebrews 13:16 - Doing Good and Sharing
And do not neglect doing good and sharing; for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
Galatians 6:2 - Help with Burdens of others
Bear one another's burdens, and thus fulfill the law of Christ.
Now I'm not religious, and you needn't be either to understand that doing something to help someone in trouble is considered loosely, "the Christian thing to do."
What do you call someone who, on his lunch break, sees a stranger being accosted and forgoes his own safety and intervenes? A hero? A good Samaritan? Walmart calls him "fired."
HARTLAND, MI (WXYZ) - "The last thing I expected was to not have a job," said Kristopher Oswald, 30, who was fired from Walmart this week after he intervened to help a woman who was apparently being assaulted in the parking lot of the store.
Oswald, who worked stocking pet food on the overnight shift at Walmart, was spending his lunch break in his car when he heard a woman screaming and a man hanging onto the hood of her car.
At first, Oswald wondered if it was just people horsing around recklessly, but when he walked over to see if the woman was really in danger, he says the man began to attack him, punching him in the head while yelling "I'm going to kill you".
So Kristopher jumped into action, fled the store to help and here's the story in his own words:
With brave actions like his, Walmart should have made him Employee of the Month, not unemployed of the future. I'm not shopping Walmart for a number of reasons -- but they all stem from how they treat their employees. This outrageous action by Walmart moves to the top of that complaints list.
