Walmart Is Anti-Christian: "You're Fired For Being A Good Samaritan"

Holy Bible

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."

WXYZ ACTION NEWS:

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.

    I have never set foot in a MalWart, and I never will. As grotesquely unjust as this story is, it doesn't surprise me in the least. Anti-trust laws should be applied to this malevolent corporate entity on a market-by-market basis. In places where they choked out most of the other small businesses, there should be sanctions. And yes, break them up. If MalWart is the only grocery and/or pharmacy and/or tire center and/or bookseller and/or whatever in TinyTown or Cornpone County - break them up! I'll leave it to the lawyers to figure out how, exactly, to do that. Teddy Roosevelt did it 100 years ago to equally powerful interests... so can we. Create competition where it was stifled. Correct the 'market forces' whose only standard is profit, not ethics. This is, after all, what government is for.

    And one more thing: speaking as a atheist/humanist, it's more than a little offensive to see heroic, altruistic concern for one's fellows described in purely christian terms. What was the attacker's spiritual bent? The victim? The boss who fired the 'Good Samaritan'? These values did not originate with the bible, or any other magical book. These are human traits, human responses, human failings. All of them: the attacker, the victim, the intervenor, the employer, the reporter, the readers. Even the commenters. We are all part of the same society, the same civilization, the same world. Behavior is not christian or muslim or jewish or hindu or atheist. It is human: the good, the bad and the indifferent.
