(FOX NEWS) -- A Southern grocery store chain is facing backlash online after including a controversial blurb in its latest weekly ad that the owner acknowledges is "political."

Mac’s Fresh Market, with locations in Louisiana, Arkansas and Mississippi, shared a photo of the savings circular on its Facebook page and website. At the top of the ad is the quote drawing so much attention: “Heaven has a wall, a gate and a strict immigration policy. Hell has open borders. Let that sink in.”

Dozens of people have since called out the store for the circular, with some calling it "disgusting” message, vowing to no longer shop there.

“Nice ridiculous political message. I guess y’all don’t have foreigners in your heaven. Disgusting.”

“Y'all just had to get political huh?”

“Christian Values??...What does this mean, Sir?? I’m so confused. You have MILLIONS of people from every walk of life who support this business. If a Christian would conduct themselves like this I’d hate to encounter a siner!!! Shame on you Mac’s SHAME!!!! God said THOU SHALL NOT JUDGE!!!! He also said to treat people the way you want to be treated. I’m so disappointed.”
