Walmart And Several Christian Stores Refuses To Carry New Stryper Album, "God Damn Evil"

In a surprising and ironic turn of events, several Christian stores, as well as major chainstore Walmart, have refused to stock the new album from Christian metal pioneers, because they object to the title of the record, "God Damn Evil." The record is set to be released tomorrow (April 20th) but fans may have to look to other retailers to find the album.

"We’re disappointed," says frontman Michael Sweet. "Stryper has always been about making people think outside the box. Our new album title 'God Damn Evil' is a statement that's needed in our society. We've seen evil rise to new levels and this title is simply a prayer request asking God to damn or condemn all the evil around us. Many chains have joined us in making such a statement. Walmart unfortunately has not. The odd thing is of all the chains out there we assumed Walmart would be one to understand exactly what our point and purpose is. Unfortunately not. Although we respect their decision and what's done is done, it's frustrating to see something that's meant for good get misinterpreted and misunderstood."
