A YouTuber with a strong conviction in his own faith has gone on a bit of a rant about Wal-Mart’s book selection. This blogger is not in the business of defending Wal-Mart but does notice the YouTube account is called “GodGunsGutsGlory4KJV” and is associated with the website of the same name.
What’s the connection between guns and God?
In fact, what is the word “glory” in there for? Sounds like a word old warriors might use when riding into battle under a religion banner. Is that the intent? Is this YouTuber preaching holy war or Christian extremism? It’s hard to say for sure but at one point in the video below you can hear him muttering about buying the book – just so he can burn it. Shocking.
Some of the books pulled out from the “Witchcraft” shelf include Richelle Mead’s (who he called a perv) Bloodlines, Lauren Kate’s Passion and P. C. Cast’s Chosen. It’s tempting to buy them – if just to keep them safe from burning.
Everyone is welcome to their own personal beliefs. Problems arise when people have extreme views (such as viewing fiction as Witchcraft manuals) that they seek to impose on others. Has Mr Guns’n’Glory gone too far with this video?

What do you think about Wal-Mart’s teen selection? Should they have had more openly religious books in there? Should they have had more bibles?
