Franklin Graham and Wells Fargo part ways over 2 mommies commerical


From Franklin Graham’s Facebook page:
Have you ever asked yourself–how can we fight the tide of moral decay that is being crammed down our throats by big business, the media, and the gay & lesbian community? Every day it is something else! Tiffany’s started advertising wedding rings for gay couples. Wells Fargo bank is using a same-sex couple in their advertising. And there are more. But it has dawned on me that we don’t have to do business with them. At the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, we are moving our accounts from Wells Fargo to another bank. And guess what—we don’t have to shop at Tiffany & Co., there are plenty of other jewelry stores. This is one way we as Christians can speak out—we have the power of choice. Let’s just stop doing business with those who promote sin and stand against Almighty God’s laws and His standards. Maybe if enough of us do this, it will get their attention. Share this if you agree.
What is Graham saying? He disagrees with the Wells Fargo bank’s stance on same sex relationships. This should come as no surprise to anyone. Franklin is a fundamentalist, strict construction Christian and it should come as no surprise that he would encourage his followers to follow his lead. This morning Whoopi Goldberg of The View took aim at Graham and she went as far as to question his Christianity. She has a right to her opinion just like Graham, but is it possible to disagree without the anger. It is possible to live in a world that respects everyone’s opinion not just the ones that agree with yours. Is this possible or does this thinking only exist in Utopia?

    Ms. Goldberg is a bully. How is what Mr. Graham did any different from those who called for a boycott of Chick-Fil-A? I like his approach.

    Goldberg IS a bully. a racist bigoted one at that. Wells Fargo is entitled to run any commercials they want, and Graham is entitled to do business with whomever he wants. Welcome to America, baby!
