AFA joins Graham in call to withdraw from Wells Fargo

A prominent pro-family organization has joined a widely respected evangelist in calling for Christians to close their Wells Fargo bank accounts.

Last month, Wells Fargo released a commercial video featuring two lesbians preparing to adopt a little girl. The move prompted Franklin Graham to say the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association was closing its account with Wells Fargo. The Mississippi-based American Family Association has since joined Graham in calling on Christians to close their accounts at the financial institution.

Vitagliano

Ed Vitagliano, executive vice president for AFA, says Wells Fargo has been promoting the homosexual agenda for well over a decade.

"In 2003, AFA began warning people of this," he notes. "They actually were supportive in the late 90s, but this is a company that has been out front in its support of the homosexual agenda."

In 2005, Dr. James Dobson and Focus on the Family announced it was withdrawing funds from Wells Fargo after the company supported homosexual activist organizations. Vitagliano is hopeful Wells Fargo listens to its constituents – both current and potential.

"For folks who are a Wells Fargo customer, pulling your funds from that bank sends a message to the leadership, one we hope that they would pay attention to," he states.

"If you are not a customer of Wells Fargo, you can simply let them know through the various avenues of contacting the company that if you were considering it, you would certainly not because of their open support for a secular view of marriage and family."

The pro-homosexual Wells Fargo commercial can be viewed below.
