Peterson’s ‘Foolproof Plan’ to Beat The Gay

Jesse Lee Peterson has come up with a “foolproof plan” to defeat that evil gay agenda, which is to boycott every company that supports equality. I wholeheartedly support this idea, which he got from Franklin Graham’s ill-fated withdraw from Wells Fargo and into the also-pro-gay-rights BB&T bank.

From the Forbes article, “Rev. Graham told Family Research Council last Monday that BB&T would receive his charities’ funds, only for media outlets to note that the bank sponsored a Miami Beach Gay Pride Parade fundraiser last year, an event where two men were married. … BB&T received a score of 80 on the LGBT group Human Rights Campaign’s “Corporate Equality Index.” Wells Fargo received a perfect 100 on the same index.”

Said Rev. Graham in response, “It is true that a local BB&T branch in the Miami area hosted a fundraiser for a program called Legacy Couples, which recognizes same-sex couples who have been in committed relationships for 10 years or more, but the bank did not promote this program through a national advertising campaign (or we would still be looking for another bank).”

It’s certainly possible that BB&T may only be marginally better than Wells Fargo on the moral meter. But if anything, that just shows how far major corporations have bent over to accommodate the homosexual lifestyle. Why do they do that?

In Wells Fargo’s case, note first that the company is headquartered in San Francisco. For a group that registers at less than two percent of the adult U.S. population (according to the CDC), homosexuals are sure loud and proud.

Uh, Jesse…what does that last sentence have to do with the one before it? You seem to be just ranting incoherently here. That won’t surprise anyone.

Wells and other companies that place high on the Human Rights Campaign’s index are being pressured by radical homosexuals, and see issues such as gay marriage continuing to gain traction.

Contrast that with the relatively meager influence of the “Moral Majority,” or more appropriately, the “Silent Majority.” Though the percentage of self-identified Christians has dropped almost seven percentage points between 2007 and 2014, seventy percent of Americans still identify themselves as Christians, according to the Pew Research Center. Yet the Christian “lion” no longer roars – it meows.

There’s a rather simple and obvious explanation for this: Not all Christians agree with you. In fact, a large percentage of them don’t. They’re fine with gay rights. Merely being a Christian does not require taking your position on The Gay.

Rev. Franklin Graham’s strategy can restore the roar! For all the media’s clamoring about his move “backfiring,” it’s actually impossible for this strategy to backfire, if it is deployed.

Why? Because investing your money in that which supports your values, and divesting your money away from that which does not support your values cannot fail. Note the left’s successful use of these strategies to divest funds and therefore support from South Africa in the ’80s, and now Israel.

Are the American people really powerless to stop the juggernaut of evil that has engulfed our land? Hardly – consider that, in addition to the tiny percentage of self-identified adult homosexuals:

Liberals – though growing somewhat – still make up a much smaller number than conservatives.

Publicly traded companies are known to bend to the demands of noisy minorities. Yet their real Achilles heel is their need to please their stockholders by making profits. Therefore, our boycotts can trump their boycotts!

Have you heard of the phrase, “Vote with your pocketbook”? Well, I believe this is the last, best chance traditional Americans have to “rock the vote.”…

Putting our money where our morals are, and pulling it from companies that don’t represent our values, is a foolproof way to win the culture war.

Except that only about 1/3 of Americans now oppose same-sex marriage. And when it comes to discrimination policies, only about 20% think businesses should be allowed to discriminate against gay people. You simply don’t have the numbers to intimidate on this issue anymore. You lost. So sad.

But by all means, I absolutely agree that you that you should stop doing business with every company that supports equality. You can figure out which companies to avoid by looking at the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index. 781 companies rated well on LGBT equality, with over 300 of them receiving a perfect score of 100. A full 89% of the Fortune 500 have policies that forbid discrimination against gays and lesbians.

What this means is that if you refuse to do business with pro-gay companies, you’ll be able to do almost nothing. You’ll be hard pressed to find a car company, bank or investment company, or insurance or pharmaceutical company. You’re pretty much going to have to stop shopping in stores or buying most food at the grocery store. Even your beloved Walmart scores a 90% and recently forced the governor of Arkansas to refuse to sign the RFRA+ bill passed by the legislature.

You can’t buy a computer from pretty much anyone and you couldn’t use the internet if you did because the companies that make the routers through which your data travels are all pro-sodomy. Hell, even the email program that the internet runs on was written by a gay man. So yeah, I’m all for your boycott. I look forward to you going to live with the Amish and never being heard from again.

    ““Moral Majority,” or more appropriately, the “Silent Majority.”

    The ‘Moral majority’ has never been moral, a majority or silent.

    Coming from you, Jesse Lee, it would have to be.

    Jesse Lee Peterson is terrified to be in a minority. I think this might be because he sees how he treats them.

    @3. My favorite paragraph from that story (which proves God actually exists and loves Ed):

    But as well known as he is, Mr. Trump is also widely disliked: A recent Quinnipiac University poll found that about seven in 10 voters nationally hold an unfavorable view of him, including 52 percent of Republicans.

    I have a lot of experience with the extensive number-crunching most large companies use to make decisions that would, on the surface, seem pretty simple. I guarantee that every large company that deals mainly with consumers has done extensive studies of the risk to their business of a consumer boycott from evangelical Christians over gay rights. And I guarantee you that they find, time after time, that the impact of even a highly successful boycott by Christians will not be enough to affect their financial results and thus to affect their stock price. I’ve heard that a lot of these companies won’t even bother to meet with extremist groups any more to pretend to listen to their agenda.

    Consider that Franklin Graham claims to be pulling $100 million from a bank with $1.7 trillion in assets. In other words, $1,700,000 million. He’s got 1/17000th of their asset base. Barely a pimple on their corporate ass.

    He vastly underestimates the foolishness of his audience. After all, they listen to him.

    Why does this boycott threat sound so much like the old “Banned in Boston!” campaigns?

  • briandavis

    Why bother trying to bully existing corporations into bending to their will? Why don’t the leaders of the “pro-family” movement just band together to create their own purity-test-passing bank? They can advertise just how proud they are to discriminate against gays in both hiring and lending. It should be a huge success if they’re right about the number of conservatives who are fed up with pandering to the gays.

    I’ll even help them out with the bank’s name and slogan. “Lot’s Bank: Leave your other bank, and don’t look back.”

    Well, at least they can still eat at Chick-fil-A. Unfortunately, they won’t be able to drink anything, because they have to boycott the soda companies. Also, the chicken was probably produced by a pro-gay company, so, I guess they can’t eat either. I guess they can just sit there and bask in each other’s hatred of the Gay.

    That might have something to do with every single boycott announced by the anti-gay right on a company that seems too pro-gay to them (and for Wells Fargo, that means acknowledging lesbians exist) failing miserably. Experience is a great teacher.

    In Wells Fargo’s case, note first that the company is headquartered in San Francisco.

    Yeah, and it was started, in part by Jews. You want to use that as an excuse to boycott it as well? At one time, that would have been enough to prompt a “Christian” boycott of a business.

    @ #4 Jesse Lee Peterson a/k/a Uncle Ruckus is terrified of minorities, that look like the perp staring back @ him in the mirror!

    A very funny paragraph. The rationalizations run deep with Rev. Graham.

    It’s certainly possible that BB&T may only be marginally better than Wells Fargo on the moral meter. But if anything, that just shows how far major corporations have bent over to accommodate the homosexual lifestyle. Why do they do that?

    Another paragraph that doesn’t fail to amuse. They just can’t resist this kind of rhetoric.

    Because investing your money in that which supports your values, and divesting your money away from that which does not support your values cannot fail.

    Of course it can. There’s the obvious issue that he’s assuming more people will back him than will either ignore him or be prompted to support companies he boycotts, but even aside from that, investing in something doesn’t guarantee its success. He might simply invest in “that which supports his values”, only for that investment to fail. It might even fail because those values are bad business.

    I think we need to start breaking out the Waaaaaahhhhhbulance for all the anti-gay bigots. The supreme court case has whipped them into a lather and they are taking their ball and going home before the game is even over.

    And the father of modern computing was also gay so anything that contains a CPU and performs computations must also be boycotted.

    Hey, they can still shop at Hobby Lobby. And I heard of a bakery that would be glad of their business…
