This Is the Ad That Made Franklin Graham Pull His Money Out of Wells Fargo

The Reverend Franklin Graham is positively outraged about a banking ad depicting two women learning sign language in order to adopt a deaf child. These two mommies love the child enough to learn her language. Who can plumb the depths of that moral depravity?

The kicker: Rev. Graham took his millions billions out of Wells Fargo and shoved it (without doing the proper research, as it turns out) into BB&T in Charlotte. Take that, you gay-loving bank!

But now it comes to light that
...BB&T has received an 80 percent score in the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index and this year is the sponsor of the Miami Beach Gay Pride Parade, along with the chief sponsor of Miami Beach Gay Pride’s “Legacy Couples” program, which celebrates same-sex couples in “committed relationships of 10 years or longer.”
A bank spokesman said the company hopes to “support the individuals and organizations that broaden our perspectives and strengthen the diverse fabric of our communities. That’s why BB&T is proud to be a part of this day of pride and celebration of the 2015 Legacy Couples.”
That would constitute a big ole oops for the Rev. Franklin, wouldn't it?

We're also waiting for the pious pastor to give up his Facebook pages, since that corporation is notoriously gay-friendly too.
