Last week's run on a Wal-Mart reveals the truth that man has not changed. Hello, this is Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. A week ago this past Saturday some food stamp recipients took advantage of a glitch in the Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) system and went on a shopping spree. The shelves in the Mansfield, La. Wal-Mart were emptied as word spread and a run on the store ensued. When the EBT system restarted and the recipients balance and limits were activated, dozens of carts filled with groceries were abandoned as would be legal looters left the store. One observer said he believed it was just a natural reaction that led people to fill up carts with groceries during the glitch. Another said, "It's just plain theft." Both are right. Despite claims to the contrary, man has not evolved to a higher state of moral awareness. Just like Adam who picked up forbidden from the produce isle in the Garden of Eden we all have a sinful nature. That's why all we need a savior.
