Franklin Graham: ‘PayPal Gets Hypocrite of the Year Award’ for Boycotting North Carolina over Transgender Bathroom Bill
The Rev. Franklin Graham has said that PayPal deserves “the hypocrite of the year award” for its refusal to expand its business to Charlotte, North Carolina after the state passed a controversial transgender bathroom bill.
The Blaze reports that Graham criticized the company
in a Facebook post
, stating that although PayPal refused to do business in Charlotte, North Carolina because of the new law preventing transgender individuals from using the bathroom of their choice, the company conducts business in many countries where homosexuality and transgenderism is severely persecuted.
“Congressman Robert Pittenger made a great point yesterday: ‘PayPal does business in 25 countries where homosexual behavior is illegal, including 5 countries where the penalty is death, yet they object to the North Carolina legislature overturning a misguided ordinance about letting men in to the women’s bathroom? Perhaps PayPal would like to try and clarify this seemingly very hypocritical position,’” Graham wrote on his Facebook page.
