Rev. Franklin Graham announced last week that he would pull his accounts from Wells Fargo after the bank aired an ad featuring a gay couple, but the evangelist preacher did not have the best of luck finding a new bank that does not “promote homosexuality.”
Graham told Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch” on Monday that he would switch to BB&T, a bank based in North Carolina. However, as Right Wing Watch pointed out, BB&T is a sponsor of the Miami Beach Gay Pride Parade.
The bank hosted a fundraiser for Miami Beach Gay Pride in February to honor “Legacy Couples,” where the bank also held a wedding ceremony for a gay couple at a makeshift chapel in the bank’s South Beach branch.
I have a suggestion as to where Franklin can stick his money, but he probably won’t like it.
