Franklin Graham, son of the famed evangelist Billy Graham, believes Christians should boycott any business either run by an LGBT individual or supportive of the movement.
Taking to Facebook, Mr. Graham ranted over Tiffany’s advertising wedding rings for gay couples (Tiffany & Company are a well-known jewellery retailer, specialising in luxury products).
“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! Tiffany’s started advertising wedding rings for gay couples.
“Wells Fargo bank is using a same-sex couple in their advertising. And there are more. But it has dawned on me that we don’t have to do business with them,” Franklin Graham continued. Wells Fargo is an American multinational bank, and the second largest in America.
“At the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, we are moving our accounts from Wells Fargo to another bank. And guess what—we don’t have to shop at Tiffany & Co., there are plenty of other jewellery stores.
“This is one way we as Christians can speak out—we have the power of choice. 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. Share this if you agree.”
Franklin Graham has become increasingly “anti-gay” in his speeches, and has recently called gay rights groups campaigning for gay marriage “evil that hate the name of Christ.”
Franklin has largely taken over his Billy Graham’s work, his father is now 96 years old and has largely retired from the public eye.
