Evangelist Franklin Graham may want to look a little more closely at the financial institutions he patronizes.
Graham, who is president and CEO of his father's Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, announced last week that the group would no longer use Wells Fargo because the bank had run an ad featuring a lesbian couple. He also urged Christians to boycott other LGBT-friendly companies.
But Graham failed to take his own advice, choosing a new bank that's also supportive of LGBT causes.
He told the Family Research Council on Monday that his organization was moving its funds to BB&T, Right Wing Watch reported. The Winston-Salem, North Carolina-based company is a "good bank," Graham said on the "Washington Watch" radio program.
Graham said Monday that his evangelical association would save $100,000 a year on lower fees at BB&T, so maybe it's all just about the money.
