Don’t Touch That Dollar Bill. It’s Been Near A Gay Person.

Rangelife points to this story from Focus on the Family (a misnomer if there ever was one):

Focus on the Family has fired its banker; Wells Fargo because the bank is among the largest corporate contributors to homosexual causes.
In 2003 alone, Wells Fargo gave $2.1 million to more than 95 non-profit agencies serving the homosexual community. That brings their total giving since the 1980’s to more than $14 million.
Focus on the Family is sympathetic to the homosexual community but opposes the radical agenda by activists. The ministry will be switching all its banking to First National Bank Omaha, described as a family-friendly institution. Wells Fargo declined to comment.
Wells Fargo has won several awards for recognizing the GLBT community including scoring a perfect 100 on the Human Rights Campaign’s “Equality Index.”

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. In order to both celebrate and critique the industry, I started AdPulp in Chicago in 2004. In 2006, I launched and led an agency content department at BFG. Today, I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
