Wal-Mart Sued Over Evanescence Lyrics

As much as I hate Wal-Mart...



Oh, man. Only in the fucking USA.

I could understand the complaint if the material contained intensely violent or sexual material, but one F-word? This is Evanesence (or however you spell it), people. Funny stuff.

Yesterday my mother told me about an exchange she witnessed at Wal-Mart. While standing in a checkout line, she overheard the clerk and a customer exchange "Merry Christmases" and briefly chat about Jesus as the true meaning of the holiday--then she heard the next person in line complain to the clerk about how she was offended that the clerk mentioned Jesus in a public space. She asked to speak to a manager!



She was probably one of those heathen that listen to Evanescence.

That is sad. I understand that, people should not be told what to believe, but we live in America. We are, supposedly, the biggest blend of cultures that there is. If anything we, as Americans, should embrace the differing cultures and belief systems that make our country the place it is. It?s one thing to be offended by something that is actually offensive, but to verbally attack someone for having a spiritual belief about a holiday, especially in this time of year, is just closed minded, and cruel.

Is there a list of behaviors that are Officially Offensive?
