Franklin Graham’s LGBT-Friendly Biz Boycott Backfires, and Rachel Maddow Loves It
(So do I, by the way)
If there ever was any doubt about Karma, this is a perfect example of it. This is a serious topic because it depicts the bigotry and intense hypocrisy that conservative “christians” show in regards to marriage equality and the LGBTQ community in general.
However, life has a way of setting some things right and this is one of them.
I don’t wish any ill on anyone … there’s no need to.
Life will take care of it.
Take a look!
Rachel Maddow is glad to report that evangelist Franklin Graham traded one gay-friendly bank for an even gay-friendlier one.
If we learned anything about Rachel Maddow from her MSNBC show, it’s that she’s a big fan of instant karma.
As The Advocate reported, Christian evangelist Franklin Graham was so upset with banking titan Wells Fargo on account of its commercial featuring a lesbian couple adopting a deaf child, he announced a plan to boycott the popular bank and switch to another one.
But as Maddow was happy to report, his plan backfired in the best — and gayest — way possible.
As it turns out, the new bank that Graham switched his financial accounts to — North Carolina-based BB&T — is actually a platinum sponsor of the annual Miami Beach Gay Pride festival and parade, one of the country’s biggest pro-LGBT celebrations.
“I love this story so much I want to take it to Franklin Graham’s new bank and marry it … if it’s a lady,” Maddow said on her show.
Graham is defending his decision to switch banks and his call for a boycott.
According to Maddow’s report, BB&T is also the chief sponsor of the “Legacy Couples” program, which “is a fundraiser that celebrates same-sex couples in committed relationships for 10 years or longer” and that the Miami branch of the bank even built a special chapel to let a gay couple get married there.
“Franklin Graham threw a Facebook hissy fit and moved his accounts because of a commercial showing two women adopting a deaf little girl, but it turns out his new bank is so much gayer than his old bank,” said Maddow.
“The universe has a way of making these things work out!”
“As it appears in … full read/full credit”

Rachel Maddow reports that televangelist Franklin Graham found a Wells Fargo ad featuring a lesbian couple adopting a deaf girl so out of line with his Christian faith that he moved his money to a new bank … that also actively supports the gay community.
