'Heaven has a wall' and South Arkansas has other grocery stores

KARK/Fox 16 reports
on the latest message in the grocery mailers distributed by Mac's Cash Saver, a grocery chain with stores in Magnolia, El Dorado, Camden and northern Louisiana. The message:  ‘Heaven has a wall, a gate and a strict immigration policy. Hell has open borders. Let that sink in.’

Mac's, a family-owned "Christian" grocery store, has long included messaging in its mailers. It tells KARK it will keep at it and has no apologies for this one. Many have complained about the latest message, but KARK's report notes others are fine with it.

If I might suggest a future Bible passage for Mac's circulars, admittedly from the Old Testament:

You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. 
PS: The story has gone national.

Some quick ideas on that:
