Wells Fargo Suffered from Foolish Ad

Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo is probably regretting its hurried decision to feature a lesbian couple in its national ad after it triggered a religious backlash.

The first to salvo, of the many expected in the coming days, came from Christian evangelist Franklin Graham, who has decided to no longer do business with the San Francisco-based bank.

Graham, son of the Rev. Billy Graham, pulled all bank accounts for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association out of Wells Fargo. Several prominent religious leaders and multinational associations are also considering pulling their accounts to protect their investors sensibilities and standards.

"This is one way we as Christians can speak out — we have the power of choice," Graham wrote on his Facebook page. "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."

Graham's move is a sharp reminder that imposing lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender lifestyle (LGBT) on the majority of people who does not want anything to do with it any type of deviant behavior is not a good business move. American are still overwhelmingly against any form of same-sex marriage, as evident by the number of legislators filing bills and measures banning such act.

The only legal source of support for LGBT came from solitary decisions of federal judges, who were not elected by the majority, but tend to impose their will on what most voters wanted to do with their state and country.

"Have you ever asked yourself — how can we fight the tide of moral decay that is being crammed down our throats by big business, the media and the gay & lesbian community? Every day it is something else!" Graham said.
