Sears Defends Selling Pornography Online

Last year, the American Family Association (AFA) contacted the popular chain store Sears due after finding pornographic materials posted for sale on the company’s website. Following a nine-month battle, Sears removed the items, sending an apology to AFA for causing offense with the products and vowing to ensure that such items will never again be offered for sale.

However, AFA recently re-visited Sears on the web only to find that the problem has worsened. The company now purportedly offers an entire page of sexually explicit material from books to DVDs.

When confronted about the reappearance of the products after specifically being told that the company would prohibit rated x material from its vendors, it replied that the products met the “terms and conditions” of Sears and therefore did not warrant being removed. Consequently, AFA is calling upon the public to tell Sears to stop selling pornographic material by contacting the corporate office at 847-286-2500.

AFA claims that it contacted Sears undercover about one of items and was told that it was a “wonderful choice.” It also test-ordered one of the products and received it with no questions asked.
