Franklin Graham: PayPal Gets The Hypocrite Of Year Award So Please Donate To Me Via My PayPal Button

“PayPal gets the hypocrite of the year award! This company says they’re not coming to North Carolina because the legislators and Gov. Pat McCrory have passed a law to protect women and children against sexual predators by not allowing men to use women’s restrooms and locker rooms.

“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.’

“PayPal operates in countries including Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, and Yemen for Pete’s sake. Just last month PayPal announced they would be expanding in Cuba, a country in which homosexuals and transgender people have been imprisoned, tortured, and executed. PayPal only agreed to come to Charlotte in the first place after holding out for millions in corporate incentives. And under the current law that they are so strongly protesting, PayPal could have chosen their own corporate bathroom policies.” – Franklin Graham, who today is accepting PayPal donations on all his grifting sites.

    Yes, and your followers live from Walmart, which sells stuff that is mainly made in China, the abortion capital of the world. And you love Israel, which has abortion on demand, and gets billions of our tax dollars.

            then who were you sipping those lattes with? 😉

        • JT

          If it’s made in China (ahem), look for it to be in use for about a year or two.

          • Cuberly

            Aren’t all Kitchenaid appliances made in china now?

          • Sashineb

            No, I think they’re still made in USA. They might be using parts from China, though. The quality went through a drop in the 90s, with some reporting gears stripping, or black oil dripping from the overhead motor into the mixing bowl. I think they’ve had enough complaints that they’ve tried to correct the issues.

          • Cuberly

            Ah, good to know.

            I think I’m the only card carrying gay guy that doesn’t own one of the iconic mixers.

          • Traxley Launderette

            Starting out poor as a young adult made me appreciate the quality of some older things. I just never bothered to trade up; it was easier to just find coordinating stuff to complete the collection. I own a 1961 Sunbeam Mixmaster. Works wonderfully, as does my 1961 Dormeyer Fri-Well, my 1958 Toastmaster toaster, my 1966 Oster Classic Eight blender, my 1965 Magic Chef electric stove, and my 1946 General Electric refrigerator. All chrome, all thrifted or gifted, and trouble-free.

            Striking thing, however, is that I and all these appliances are the same age. Except the refrigerator… She’s the Dowager Countess of my kitchen.

          • Cuberly

            Wow, that’s pretty cool.

            My mother passed away last year, one of the things I found going through her things was an old Sunbeam iron. It was all chrome, I think it was a wedding gift. That thing weighed a ton, and she used it since the day she received it in 54. My brother kept it and said it does a better job and heats up more evenly than his newer one.

          • Traxley Launderette

            They do! I had my mom’s. She used it for 50 years. When it finally died, I replaced it with a series of lightweight contemporary models. Each lasted about a year, including a higher end Rowenta. Finally I found another heavyweight Sunbeam at a Goodwill. Back to good again.

          • Sashineb

            I had a Sunbeam Mixmaster before I got the KitchenAid. I wanted the bigger machine to knead bread dough and for heavier mixtures. I found a good home for the Mixmaster, and it’s still getting used regularly. And you have a 1946 GE fridge? Wow! Pretty amazing.

          • Traxley Launderette

            The GE was lucky. I happened to check Craigslist for vintage stuff and there it was, about thirty minutes away for 50 bucks. My old refrigerator was an early 90s model that I hated and had only because I needed something for the house when moved in.

            I got my neighbor to drive me over in his truck. The owners said the refrigerator was the original one in the house since in was built in 1946. (They bought the house from the original owners.) They needed something larger, so it’d been in the garage less than one year as a beer fridge. Brought it home and he and I carried it into the house. It’s quiet and uses less energy than you’d think because it’s well insulated. Checked the serial number on GE’s site ans verified: built in August 1946.

          • Sashineb

            That is just amazing! My grandparents had a GE fridge, from around 1950. It was white-enamelled and I remember Grandpa saying they paid $400 for it. Four hundred dollars in 1950 was a lot of money. You’ve done very well to get such a vintage at such a price — especially when people today are paying really big bucks for retro-looking appliances.

          • Mark

            I have my grandmothers Sunbeam Mixmaster from the early 50’s.

          • Sashineb

            Wonderful! The Eaton’s department store near me used to have a sales rep from Sunbeam demonstrating the mixers, and she was always speaking of the quality that was built into their products. Your mixer speaks of that quality.

          • vorpal

            You are not alone.
            I’d love one, but there are things I’d rather spend the money on.

          My mom gave me her old 1960’s Kitchen Aid (Avocado).

          Nah, they’re on back order.

            thanks, its been in family since new,and is still ‘very active’ in the kitchen lol

          • Cuberly

            That’s pretty amazing. Built to last, unlike so many newer ones with that built in obsolescence.

            Gorgeous color of green though……

        • madknits

          I have my mother’s mixer like that, and it still works. It’s also solid steel.

          • Orion Dumptee

            sure,the Sunbeam line was well made,they rarely wore out, and vintage ones still command good price on ebay

        • olandp

          I have my mother’s Good Housekeeping cook book from Home-Ec class, published in 1946. It talks about the “new electric mixers”.

        • Duane Dimitrov

          Seriously?

  • Todd20036

    Except Paypal has customers in countries where homosexuality is illegal – doesn’t mean they operate there or pay taxes there.

    But it does pay taxes in the US, and decides where it sets up shop.

    It’s adorable when RWNJs try to use logic, and fail miserably

    • Rebecca Gardner

      Thank you! I was going to post pretty much the same sort of comment.

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      “Like watching dogs try to tie knots,” as one of my co-workers used to say.

      • sherman

        My aunt actually had a dog that would tie knots. I don’t know why she did it, but it was amazing why and how she would manipulate the string or whatever.

    • Chris Baker

      Right. I doubt PayPal has office in Saudi Arabia. They have customers there.

      • Jeff Chang

        But the do in Malaysia.

        • Chris Baker

          OK, and in Singapore, too.

          So are you saying that fact precludes PayPal from making any other business decisions based on perceived injustices? A business decision in North Carolina can have an impact on state politicians. A business decision by PayPal to not locate in Singapore over Singapore’s polices on gays will not affect Singapore’s leadership because there is a lot more cultural baggage to overcome. The NC law has a chance of being overturned in the next few years, whereas Singapore and Malaysia have a decade or so to go before change happens.

          • Jeff Chang

            So the act of funding a government (through taxes) that persecutes it own people is justified because they are more savage than us?

            At what point does such a company advocate for social change?

          • Chris Baker

            So because a company has never advocated for social change, they can never start? So if a company decides not to open an office in NC, they must therefore close all it’s offices around the world in unfriendly countries?

            Or are you saying that since PayPal has offices in Malaysia, they should just go ahead an open the office in North Carolina too?

            Do you think that PayPal’s cancellation of the office in NC as a direct result of HB2 has a different message (perhaps stronger or more direct) than closing an office in the country of Malaysia — or never opening one in the first place?

          • Jeff Chang

            Are you stating that Paypal will criticize the Malaysian goverment for its stances?

            As to closing offices, perhaps. We hear all this crap from progressives about not investing in Israel, no? The call to devest funds?

            But when it comes to Muslim countries, they are pretty freaking silent.

            As to the efficacy of the message, when does it becomes okay to make a buck, sir?

            Is there this magically line where once the effect is to difficult you tell the gays, sorry faggots but I just wont work.

            I really enjoy yoyr destruction of Western Values. Perhaps you will go easier on a rapist from a backwards culture because the effect on there community will be less profound.

            Nothing like differing standards to judge what you to precieve as savages

          • Chris Baker

            You will need to direct your questions to PayPal. i don’t know what they will or won’t do, or how they make their corporate decisions.

            Maybe you have an idea of how we can impose all our ‘modern, enlightened’ western values on every other person on earth, because it seems pretty complicated to me.

          • Perceived injustices? Are you claiming that some countries aren’t horrible when it comes to human rights?

          • Chris Baker

            I meant that PayPal is the one viewing these as injustices. PayPal, as a company, perceive the actions of the NC to be injustices and are this acting on those beliefs.

    • Paula

      Really! I bought a fossil from a reputable company that is in Russia once. That doesn’t mean that I support Putin. Logic does escape them, doesn’t it?

    • TimJ

      Yes, PayPal pays American taxes unlike grifter Franklin Graham.

    • Jeff Chang

      They have offices in Malaysia and pay taxes in many of these countries.

  • crewman

    That’s not what “hypocrisy” means. A hypocrite is a religious leader shrieking from the top of his lungs about the sanctity of marriage, while simultaneously committing adultery. On the surface, it appears PayPal is applying its reasoning inconsistently, but that could reflect several things:
    1) companies often are forced to take different stances for different countries;
    2) their view may be evolving and this may be the start of a roll-out of new policy;
    3) being closer to home, it’s harder to ignore.

    • Chris Baker

      Right. PayPal has no leverage or power in Saudi Arabia, or Yemen, or Cuba, but they have some political power in the US, via where they locate their businesses and who they benefit.

      In certain countries, being a modern, western, liberal presence can have an influence and effect on the local people. On the other hand, when modern countries take a step backwards, your approach is different. Stopping Saudis from using PayPal on hurts the citizens, Choosing to not locate a large office in a state hurts the state’s image, reputation and tax income.

      • Jeff Chang

        Did not the Ban on trade to South Africa hurt its citizens during the Aprtheid?

        • Chris Baker

          I suppose it did, in the same way PayPal’s decision hurts people in NC because of the loss of potential jobs. But people in NC vote, and if they are upset about the loss of jobs, they can vote in a new legislature. Similar to trade ban on SA, the backlash is also hurting NC’s reputation and that is what is important to state leaders, because it’s harder to attract people and business to the state.

          • Jeff Chang

            Then why not boycott Malaysia? Wouldnot exactly what you cited apply to Malaysia?

    • Steverino

      And that door swings both ways: notice these countries are allowing LGBT-friendly companies to have operations there. In that context, they have a more welcoming attitude than Todd Starnes!

            Love to you for remembering linoleum floors, hon.

            Do the young ones today know about linoleum floors, do you think?

            My impression is they all want the wood stuff these days.

          • Rebecca Gardner

            My first apartment, back in the mid-80s, was this shitty 5 floor walk up on E 54th St. It was all I could afford back then and this place was literally falling down. All the apartments leaned towards the stairway in the middle of the building. Which was interesting. Like living in a fun house. It was also infested with roaches and rats.I still sometimes have nightmares about that place and all the cockroaches.

          • another_steve

            I grew up in NYC near the ocean, girl. Coney Island, to be precise. I know about cockroaches.

            My sister used to freak out when she found one crawling on the peanut butter and jelly sandwiches our mother put out for us on the counter. Me, not so much.

            Queer 12-year-olds are quite inquisitive.

        • EdmondWherever

          Ooof, I remember being woken up in the middle of the first night in mine, from the roaches that were crawling on my face.

            I’ll take your word for it.

          • ColdCountry

            Cockroach capitol of the world – or so say I! I remember being in a restaurant there and a cockroach came walking across the table. I took the upside down coffee cup off the saucer and set it over the roach. When the waitress came to take our order, she reached for the cup, but I stopped her, telling her about the roach. I thought she was going to faint. Then there was the SIZE of the whatever it was on the wall of the hotel room….

          • That_Looks_Delicious

            There are a lot of them all along the Gulf Coast. And not just in
            buildings. We noticed that when we were working on bridges in New
            Orleans, Lafayette, Baton Rouge and Lake Charles, Louisiana.

            Maybe because it never freezes down there? I know it’s almost unheard of to find roaches outdoors up in Cleveland or Pittsburgh.

          • Ray Taylor

            Lived in Honolulu for a year. The roaches under my cottage were more than an inch long, sometimes two inches. the only good thing was the spiders were bigger than the roaches and would suck them dry.

          • I lived in a garage apartment for awhile in Montrose. The landlady had my apartment fumigated to get rid of the bugs. I didn’t really see that many, but she was paying so okay. The next day my floor looked like a deleted scene from The Ten Commandments. And then a few months later they did it again and while fewer they were everywhere. I think it’s the weather. There’s never a freeze to kill any bigs so they breed year round.

    How nice of him to pretend to give a crap about what happens to LGBT people in other countries considering he is fully on board with the laws in Russia that call for LGBT to be fined and jailed.

    • boatboy_srq

      Wasn’t he also onboard with that FSMawful legislation in Uganda? Russian law is tame in comparison to that mess.

      • Yes, he was.

    • I was opening the mail for the CEO of one of those companies right after they adopted their nondiscrimination policy. They got a few hate letters. (Not a deluge by any stretch but a trickle of a few a day for awhile). At one point head of HR made a point of personally apologizing to me for having to read that crap. I told her I was from East Texas and was used to it. But it was a nice gesture on her part. They didn’t budge (but I think mostly because they didn’t lose that many customers over it and none that were huge contracts. Had they lost corporate accounts costing thing millions that might have been another story.) Most big companies now have similar policies. It was the 90s when most of that happened and in the late 90s the job market was such that it was hard to fill many positions so offering a safe workplace for everyone was a real plus and once a few started doing it, everyone pretty much had to as well. Baptists had a freak-out over Disney adopting such a policy but the reality was that most major studies had already done so and they were losing people (especially in animation) to other studios as everyone was adding animation. it cost them nothing and added a great deal of appeal for creative people to know that everyone would be respected.

      • Clive Johnson

        Thank you for that interesting background.

        • I worked all over the company as a temp in between singing gigs and eventually wound up on the executive floor. (Great view, long hours, kind of surreal) Basically in that company a group of gay employees went to HR and asked to be added to the nondiscrimination policy. HR asked if there was any discrimination happening. There wasn’t really. So basically they could make a lot of employees happy by doing something that cost them nothing and was basically the policy anyway, just not in writing. No problem. And then they started using that policy as a selling point when recruiting college grads to come work there. (That used to be a thing. There were actually more applicants than jobs near the end of Bill Clinton’s second term. Seems like a fairy tale or something. If only I’d know it wasn’t going to last I’d have made very different career choices. Oh well.)

  • Rebecca Gardner

    “by not allowing men to use women’s restrooms and locker rooms.”

    No, the law prevents women from using women’s restrooms and locker rooms and men from using men’s restrooms and locker rooms.

    • PLAINTOM

      Sing it sister.

    • CPT_Doom

      And allows straight male predators to claim to be trans men so they can get in women’s spaces without even changing their clothes. Awkward.

    • douglas

      So exactly where do they think Transgender people have been peeing all along? And there wasn’t a single incident like the ones they are trying to prevent with this bill.

    • CPT_Doom

      And yet the list of straight men who have raped, beaten and/or killed women they claimed to love is so long as to be unprintable, which would imply we should just keep straight men away from all women. Maybe a new use for Gitmo?

    Unlike some xtian businesses, Paypal is unconcerned with whom their customers are sleeping. It really is none of their business. On the other hand, Franky thinks he should know who’s fucking who. Hence, his immense appetite for gay sex – cuz we do it sooooo much.

    • He’s just jealous because someone somewhere is getting laid, and he isn’t.

      • Steverino

    …Congressman Robert Pittenger made a great point yesterday:

    That North Carolina has bigots for legislators?

  • BobSF_94117

    Interestingly, Franklin makes almost as much in salary as Paypal’s CEO.

    [edit] I mean from Samaritan’s Purse. For all I know, Franklin makes buckets more from other grifts.[/edit]

    • Clive Johnson

      It’s tough being a persecuted religious minority in America.

      • Damn! I had no idea being persecuted pays so well!

        • Clive Johnson

          You might even say it’s a privilege to be persecuted so lavishly.

    • abel

      The Graham Empire is probably worth a billion or so. So many fingers in so many pies, all of it carefully constructed and tax free and much of it carefully hidden.

  • OUTinMinnesota

    When CEO Graham says: PayPal could have chosen their own corporate bathroom policies he’s lying. It’s a lie of omission.

    It’s true that a business in the state of NC can establish corporate policy. But it would be UNenforceable policy, wouldn’t it? It would be unenforceable because employees would flout the policy by claiming “sincerely held blah blah blah”.

    A lie of omission.

    • m_lp_ql_m

      Well, they’re getting better, aren’t they? Usually, xians just flat out lie.

    All Hail, Mammon!!!

    • abel

      Oh, no! They ONLY serve one master. The rest is just theater.

  • Franciscan

    I think what he and Tony need is for Pay Pal to create a separate brand for grifting right-wing Web sites. It could be called, for example, Pay Jesus.

    Sit on a telephone pole, Franklin, and see dog.

  • Bad Tom

    The old they kill gays in XYZ country, so you should suck it up here argument.

    NOPE.

    • Steverino

      Similar to the “blacks should be happy their ancestors were sold into slavery and brought to America in chains, because had they remained in Africa, their descendants would be living in a hellhole.”

      No thanks to the European colonialism, greed, (and today) American missionaries, that helped make it that way. And no thanks that, as Flip Wilson once quipped over 45 years ago: “The negro didn’t give the blues to America, America gave the blues to the negro.”

      • Jeff Chang

        No thanks given to the Blacks that sold their brothers to the White man ir how Liberia consisted of freed slaves only for the smBlack slaves to inslave other Blacks?

    • Jeff Chang

      So why is paypal not concerned with plight of gays in the other countries?

      • Friday

        Cause it’s not hypocrisy to expect more from free countries? Or to say they don’t support taking the United States down to their levels?

        • Jeff Chang

          Ah…So you dont think that the other countries should be held to Western standards?

          Are they supposed to be pittied becuase they are savages?

          • There’s a sort of bizarre bigotry on the left these days in which horrible practices in some countries are accepted and we are racist for mentioning them. I don’t know what went wrong with that crowd but they are fucking insane.

            Yes, we should be for universal human rights and shame on anyone who isn’t.

          • Friday

            I didn’t say that, …you are. I said it’s not *hypocrisy* to expect more from our own country. It’s Graham trying to drag us *down* to the level of oppressive nations.

      • Bad Tom

        What makes you think they’re not?

  • Richard B

    Our mission should be to first clean up the superstitious bigoted republicans states in the United States before we can take on the rest of the world. Since odious Tony Perkins announced the FRC is dropping PayPal, why doesn’t odious Franklin Graham do the same? Since the tech companies are squarely for LGBTQ rights, lets encourage all of our knuckle dragging opponents to stop using technology.

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      Well, it seems like he supports PayPal because it operates in homophobic countries. Or something.

  • Michael Aaron

    Paypal charges nonprofit organizations like his $.30 plus 2.2% of the transaction. I just donated a quarter. I hope I just donated to PayPal, plus cost him $.056. Wonder if that works.

    • Necessitas

      Wouldn’t that cost him 5.55¢ or, expressed in dollars, $0.0555?

      • Michael Aaron

        That’s what I’m thinking 😉

  • easygoingmister

    This man (and his ilk) should loose the religious tax exemption he currently enjoys on the double-digit millions he pulls in each year.

  • Necessitas

    People can still use cash or a credit card to visit his mother’s grave, it’s just past the animatronic cow…

    • Wait! Is that true? He charges people to visit his mother’s grave? I have no idea why they would want to visit her grave, but to charge those that do is shocking!

      • jomicur

        Maybe there’s no rest room nearby.

  • Jude Newton

    If Pat Mccrory really wanted to “protect women and children from sexual predators” he’d do PSA’s on warning said women and children from joining religious organizations.

    • And if they MUST join, to keep them away from all Youth Group leaders and priests!!

  • anne marie in philly

    bwhahahahahaha! condemn from one side of the mouth and embrace it with the other side. frankie and tony baloney better put up or STFU on this issue!

  • Tor

    They’re getting a lot of mileage claiming transexuals are just men in dresses.

    • Steverino

      That’s because both they and the people who listen to them are idiots. And they donate, and vote.

      But I’m being Captain Obvious, here.

  • Mike in Texas

    Tony and Franklin have eradicated the dividing line between satire and real life.

    • Jimmie Z

      It’s a MIRACLE!

  • Kissmagrits

    Yes, Franklin. I’ll donate to your Jeebus fund after I figure out how that particular substance can be sent electronically.

  • Phil2u

    I’m from N. C.; the Graham klan are notorious charlatans. I became convinced of my atheism following one of those Billy Graham crusades, having been hauled there by my parents. I was about 15 years old.

  • Mark Neé Fuzz

    How much you wanna bet guys like Franklin Graham also run Craigslist ads seeking chicks with dicks? Maybe they hope to get a show in the men’s locker room. The only other explanation for that outlook is stupidity. Surely THAT can’t be it.

    • Mark Neé Fuzz

      FG by the way is another who can shove his Bible up his ass and push it deeper with the top end of a crucifix

  • bambinoitaliano

    Says the guy who can’t keep his money out of the gay bank.

  • Anti-gay bigots are in a real conundrum. They can’t really boycott anti gay businesses while living in the 21st century. There just aren’t any big banks, computer operating systems, and other basic tools for doing business these days that don’t support gay rights.

  • JustSayin’

    So basically he is saying that he uses paypal because he supports them doing business in countries that kill gay people…..derp!

  • James

    Not that I agree with the rest of Franklin’s bullshit argument, but he’s not wrong aboug corporations (and countries) being held to account for doing business in/with countries/entities that support or engage in discrimination.

  • djcoastermark

    I think he is misleading people. at first glance it looks like Satans Purse. I am sure it’s intentional to get the unawares money too.

    • Jimmie Z

      • djcoastermark

        ok, my bad

  • David Walker

    This sounds an awful lot like PerKKKins and Graham-Cracker did not compare their bigot blurtings before issuing their statements. It’s just so fucking confusing when The Truly Religious offer different, even say “conflicting,” viewpoints on the results of their hatred. It’s always interesting, though, to watch all The Truly Religious fuckwads vie for Pharisee of the Year.
