Whither Walmart?

The Catholic League put up a post today about some very offensive costumes being sold by Walmart on its website (not sure if they're being sold in the stores as well).  The offending costumes are a Blessed Virgin Mary with blood coming out of her eyes called "Scary Mary" and a racy nun outfit that is called "naughty nun."

According to the Catholic League, when it complained about the offensive items, Walmart responded with this particularly bland reply:
We apologize if we offended you. Because we have multiple buyers of customers, we try to provide them with plenty of options. However, we have documented your concern in order to improve our inventory at and in stores.”
 I say no shopping at Walmart unless they pull these items and respond with a truly sincere apology.  It is getting really irritating how the culture of materialism and greed has replaced all sense of decency and just plain good manners.  Enough is enough!  Let Walmart rely on its "multiple buyers of customers" (whatever that means).  All people of good will should keep their wallets closed until there is a change of attitude.

Just so you can see what Walmart does not consider offensive, here is the image of one of the costumes from the website:
