|The Family Research Council hates PayPal for hating|
North Carolina's anti-LGBT law, but at least for now
you can donate to the FRC via PayPal. Hmmm.
As noted previously, PayPal announced earlier this week they wouldn't be locating a processing center in North Carolina after all.
PayPal executives were understandably annoyed with North Carolina's legislature and governor adopting a weird law that would, among other things, make transgendered people use bathrooms that correspond to their birth certificate, and not to their current gender.
There's also some other anti-LGBG goodies in that law.
Anyway, the law goes against PayPal's corporate philosphy about inclusiveness, so they'll look elsewhere to locate their new office.
(Note: Already, other states, including here in Vermont are yelling for PayPal: Over here! Over here! Come here! We'll see how that goes.)
Predictably, various and sundry evangelical and right wing activist groups are annoyed with PayPal for being annoyed with North Carolina's law.
These groups want us to boycott PayPal, and donate to their organizations to fight the heathen PayPal.
According to JoeMyGod, at least two of these groups, the Family Research Council, and Franklin Graham's outfit, tell us the best way to donate to fight PayPal is through, um, PayPal.
Tony Perkins of Family Research Council says they will remove the PayPal option soon. Let's see if they do.
Franklin Graham complains that PayPal operates in countries that are very abusive and hostile to gays and that's true. But they don't have their corporate offices in these countries.
Nevertheless, Graham says PayPal is hypocritical for backing out of North Carolina when it does business in oppressive countries
But Grahams's web site invites you to donate to him via PayPal.
No that's not hypocritical, uh-uh.
