The Arkansas grocery store owner who has come under fire for his store’s “heaven has a wall” advertisement is standing by his ad and suggested that those who have been critical of it are from “out of the country” or “somewhere way away.”
“We’ll have one of those people latch on to us from out of the country or somewhere way away, they talk so filthy and pitiful, I don’t know why Facebook lets it stay up there,” Reggy McDaniel, the owner of Mac’s Cashsaver, said during an interview with “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday.
He claimed that he originally saw the phrase — “Heaven has a wall, a gate and a strict immigration policy. Hell has open borders. Let that sink in.” — on Facebook and said his motivation for including it in his weekly ad was purely spiritual.
“I wanted people to realize that heaven has walls and borders and we have to get in that gate,” he said. “The open borders represents any lost person who supposed to be, that don’t want — they can do all the sin and do it as much as they want to, but God has a place for us to go, he has a salvation for us and that is what I was trying to do. I had no idea it would be this big, but the bigger it got the more the message is gonna get out there. I’m proud we done it and I’m really, I’m really proud of it.”
