Just when you thought it was safe to shop at Wal-Mart...

Looking around CNN Money, I see this headline Wal-Mart shuns gay groups.

NEW YORK (FORTUNE) -- Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, has decided to curb its support of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) organizations after conservative Christian groups threatened a boycott, and after some of its own employees expressed disapproval.

The move comes a year after Wal-Mart had put on a gay-friendly smile. The company joined the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. It sponsored the annual convention of Out & Equal, a group that promotes gay rights in the workplace, and sold gay-themed jewelry in stores.

So is Wal-Mart ever going to figure out one way or the other if they are really going to support everyone or no one? Does the gay community even care about Wal-Mart and should we care about them?
