Focus on the Family Boycotts Wells Fargo Because of its Support for Gay Rights

Focus on the Family announced last week that it would be “end[ing] its banking relationship with Wells Fargo, motivated primarily by the bank’s ongoing efforts to advance the radical homosexual agenda,” according to a statement made by Focus on the Family president and CEO Jim Daly posted on the group’s website. At issue is a gift made by Wells Fargo to GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation).

Glennda Testone, spokeswoman for GLAAD, said in a written statement, according to the Associated Press, “Thankfully, corporate America knows that discriminating against a group of people based on who they love is not only bad for business; it’s just plain wrong É Let’s just call this what it is – another attempt by an anti-gay group to try to intimidate companies into not supporting or doing business with gays and lesbians.”
