WKRN Video Journalist Fails to Mention that Church Boycott is a Matter of "Almighty Dollar"

Originally posted on Free Tennessee:

News 2 Video Journalist Mick Scott reports on the Columbia Church boycotting Wal-Mart for affiliating with the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.  He said that the pastor of the church believes that Wal-Mart's decision was motivated by the "almighty dollar."  He did not note that the pastor's endorsement to her church to boycott Wal-Mart has a much to do with dollars as it does with divinity.

He also let go unchallenged her definition of gay and lesbian orientation as a "lifestyle," as if being attracted to the same sex was more like choosing between ski boats and less like being subject to hormonal and emotional drives.
