Franklin Graham, Who’s Boycotting Pro-LGBT Companies, Moved His Money to a Gay-Pride-Supporting Bank

I posted yesterday about how Franklin Graham told his Facebook followers to boycott LGBT-friendly companies:

He took his own advice, too. Upset that Wells Fargo used a gay couple in one of its ads, Graham said that the “Billy Graham Evangelistic Association [is] moving our accounts from Wells Fargo to another bank.”

Turns out that bank is North Carolina-based BB&T.

And BB&T is actually a proud supporter of the Miami Beach Gay Pride Parade:

I haven’t laughed this hard in a while…

Brian Tashman at Right Wing Watch also points out:

A bank spokesman said the company hopes to “support the individuals and organizations that broaden our perspectives and strengthen the diverse fabric of our communities. That’s why BB&T is proud to be a part of this day of pride and celebration of the 2015 Legacy Couples.

In fact, BB&T hosted a same-sex couple’s wedding reception earlier this year “in a makeshift chapel at event sponsor BB&T Bank South Beach branch.”

So far, Graham is silent on where he plans to move his money now that the whole world’s gone gay. Maybe he can just buy a Jesus-approved private jet.
