Or to put it more accurately, God will humble proud Tesco, in answer to prayer.
As the Daily Mail has reported, retail giant Tesco have stopped sponsoring Cancer Research UK and switched their support to that annual display of aggression and depravity, London Gay Pride. But the Bible says: When pride cometh, then cometh shame (Prov 11:2).
Mr Richard Littlejohnsaid: ‘If gays want to dress up as Carmen Miranda or mince up and down The Mall in nothing but their knickers, that’s fine by me. But why would Britain’s biggest supermarket want to be associated with such an event, at the expense of cancer victims?’
And this is on top of Tesco secretly selling halal lamb and chicken to unsuspecting shoppers.
There are five important and effective things Christians can do:
1 Pray that God will send repentance into the Tesco boardroom, and that they will reverse their grant to gay pride..
2 Boycott Tesco and encourage others to do the same.
3 Mount a witness with banners and/or give leaflets out to shoppers outside Tesco’s high street stores ‘Tesco Direct’ (they can throw you out of their car park, but you have every right to witness on the street). Contact us for leaflets. The text of the LEAFLET is HERE
4 Email/write to the Tesco Group Chief Executive, Philip Clark, [email protected] and their Marketing Director, Richard Brasher: [email protected]. You can also write to their new Chairman, Sir Richard Broadbent, at New Tesco House, Delamare Rd, Cheshunt, Herts, EN8 9SL. His email seems to be: [email protected] (HERE is what one ex-Tesco-customer wrote.)
5 Sign our petition ‘Boycott Tesco’. Make sure you right-click and then open it in a new tab or window to keep this page on-screen.
There are a couple of other really effective things to do as well, but we shall let Christian Voice members exclusively know about them at the proper time through our newsletter which never goes up on the web!
Tesco’s spin centres on ‘diversity’ as an ‘inclusive store’ – they even have an ‘Out at Tesco’ webpage promoting sodomy amongst their employees and a page commending staff for taking part in the 2010 parade – and ignores the fact that Gay Pride is a provocative and aggressive display of indecency and perversion. For all their posturing, would Tesco actually like a gay pride march through one of their stores? And if they are really interested in diversity, will they be sponsoring the ex-gay movement? Don’t hold your breath.
If you can bear it, here is a video link of Soho Pride, part of the London set-up in 2008. And it that was not enough, here is a video link showing just what the gentle, tolerant gays and their supporters think of those who disagree with them with music from someone called Lily Allen. Thanks, Anglican Mainstream.
Tesco have denied that sponsoring gay pride was at the expense of Cancer Research, but the facts are that Tesco’s support for the annual fundraising Race for Life, the UK’s largest women-only charity event, helped Cancer Research raise more than £400million for the fight against cancer since it began in 1994.
Tesco announced it would be a headline sponsor of Pride London just days after ending their partnership with Cancer Research. Tesco’s Head of Research and Development, a militant anti-Christian homosexual called Nick Lansley, lobbied hard for that decision.
Here at Christian Voice we have a soft spot for cancer charities ever since Maggies Centres courageously turned down tainted money from the blasphemous Jerry Springer the Opera in 2006 and were rewarded by making far more from the publicity around that decision than what they would have received from the show. Why on earth should Tesco think that dumping a cancer charity to take up with Gay Pride is a clever (even a good commercial) decision?
The militant atheist magazine Freethinker helpfully points out that the Co-op sponsor Manchester Gay Pride (as well as throwing Christian Voice out of their bank) and that ASDA’s parent Wal-Mart give benefits to gay partners of employees in the USA. Unless ‘Christian fundies want to starve themselves’, they chuckle, ‘they better (sic) start thinking fast of joining the grow-your-own movement’.
Well that’s a good idea in itself, but have they forgotten Sainsbury, not to mention your local shops? In addition, as we pointed out in our video on the supermarkets and halal, if you want to be sure of avoiding halal-slaughtered fresh meat, just shop at M&S or Morrisons.
Some words from Proverbs and from Mary on the subject of pride to inform your prayer. Remind the Lord of his word as you pray:
Prov 8:13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
Prov 11:2 When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.
Prov 13:10 Only by pride cometh contention: but with the well advised is wisdom.
Prov 14:3 In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them.
Prov 16:5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
Prov 16:18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
Prov 29:23 A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.
Luke 1:49 For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. 50 And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation. 51 He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. 52 He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.
James 4:6 Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
