Do You Agree? Franklin Graham Pulls His Bank Accounts After Wells Fargo Features Lesbian Couple in TV Ads

Gays are less than 4 percent of the US population but it seems that everywhere you go their lifestyle is being jammed down all our throats. Now famed minister Franklin Graham is responding to this onslaught by taking his own personal bank accounts out of Wells Fargo over their gay-themed advertisements.

Graham is also calling on Christians everywhere to follow his move and protest Wells Fargo by removing their accounts, too.

“This is one way we as Christians can speak out – we have the power of choice,” Graham wrote on Facebook over the weekend. “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.”

Reached Monday, a spokesperson for Wells Fargo said the bank has proudly supported the LGBT community for a long time – a commitment echoed by the ad.

“At Wells Fargo, serving every customer is core to our vision and values,” said Christina Kolbjornsen. “Diversity and inclusion are foundational to who we are as a company. Our advertising content reflects our company’s values and represents the diversity of the communities we serve.”

The ad features a lesbian couple learning American Sign language so that they can talk to the little deaf girl they are going to adopt.

Here is the ad…

So, what do you think? Do you agree with pastor Graham?
