Fight Cultural Evil With Your Wallet

Famed preacher Franklin Graham, known for his steadfast refusal to play nice with liberals, is asking Christians to withdraw their monetary support of businesses that lobby for gay marriage.

“Have you ever asked yourself – how can we fight the tide of moral decay that is being crammed down our throats by big business, the media, and the gay & lesbian community? Every day it is something else;” Franklin wrote on Facebook. “Tiffany’s started advertising wedding rings for gay couples. Wells Fargo bank is using a same-sex couple in their advertising. And there are more.”

According to Franklin, Christians can fight this cultural evil with their wallets. He is encouraging believers to push back against companies that support the homosexual agenda by taking their business elsewhere. “Guess what,” he wrote. “We don’t have to shop at Tiffany & Co., there are plenty of other jewelry stores. This is one way we as Christians can speak out—we have the power of choice. Let’s just stop doing business with those who promote sin and stand against Almighty God’s laws and His standards. Maybe if enough of us do this, it will get their attention.”

Beyond Voting

This is an avenue of protest that has been ignored by conservatives for too long. If the fight over religious freedom this year taught us anything, it’s that big corporations have a great deal of influence when it comes to state policy. In both Indiana and Arkansas, companies like Wal-Mart, Angie’s List, and Apple put pressure on lawmakers to add LGBT exemptions to their freedom bills. In both cases, Republicans cowered before the almighty dollar.

That should tell us all we need to know about where the power lies. And despite what the media may have you believe about the decline of American Christianity, people of faith still make up the vast majority of the population. The news may not have much interest in putting these people on TV, but to hell with the news. To hell with the media, and to hell with LGBT/feminists/liberals. We don’t need their permission to preserve this country. Remember the old saying, put your money where your mouth is? It’s time.

Shopping with your beliefs takes effort. It takes sacrifice. But if you really feel in your heart that the LGBT agenda is taking this country down a dangerous path, this may be the only way to stop them.

    well its like this if you do not like how Walmart treats their employees and you want to make a statement stop shopping there. If you are a deyed in the wool gun carrier and a store don’t want guns (target comes to mind shop at a store that welcomes gunowners (kroeger or fred meyer which is a subsidiary) when you want to talk put your money where your mouth is or shut up. rev franklin is right when there are anough Christians if you want to make a statement the power of where you as a consumer by your goods and services is a powerful tool.. but you have to do it in numbers.

    • The numbers thing is the trick. But lately it’s hard to get any number of people together to do anything but riot or burn down towns. It’s much harder to get them together to do good. That’s because it takes effort.

      • it is easy to get clowns to demonstrate…fill them with BS, give them a ride to the “spot” (Ferguson, Mo), dope them up, and promise to pay….works every time due to the “demonstrators” being “available” and their welfare payments are now direct deposit…

    • I stopped shopping at Target the day I learned they were totally pro-gay. Like you, I substituted them for Fred Meyer.

  4. The problem with this approach is by the time you make the list of companies you can’t do business with, you won’t be able to do business anywhere. Yes, I know, it’s an overstatement, but you get my point. I guess the next best thing is to go after the worst offenders. I think the reverse might work as well. Make sure to patronize businesses that stand up for values (i.e. Hobby Lobby, Chick Fillet, etc.)

  5. The only thing is that Walmart has just about shut down all of the mom&pop stores all across America. It would be hard not to go there because there isn’t anything left to go to, at least not in my area.
    But if you could tell me where there is an ALL-AMERICAN-MADE store, I would go there in a heartbeat. Can’t be done, though.

    • PB, Walmart did not shut down all the m&p stores in America. They gave people what they wanted and those same people gave them their business. They too started as a mom & pop, they just it better.

      That said, I attempt to buy as many US made products as I can and support/boycott those establishments that do not meet my standards.

      There is MinYards, Albertson, and Tom Thums that is all American since the beginning of time.

  6. I would very much like to know how many folks will ditch their Apple products or boycott other companies products who are pushing the issues of small groups of agitators who squeak louder than a rusty hinge and cave in to their incessant babbling and agitation which the main line media loves. Worried about their image in whose eyes ? The kings of the world will mount a fierce battle but every “neon light” they made as their will go up in smoke. Support businesses and others with compatible world views that are morally obvious under even natural law.

  7. Alleged Comment

    I do that all the time. I try not to support companies that go FULL RETARD!

  8. I do not frequent stores that openly cater to gays mostly because I do not like the store for other reasons as well. If everyone would do what is suggested here it would bring about some changes. Money or the lack thereof, is a major factor in any business. Works for me. But I personally do not hate gay people, I just do not subscribe to their way of life. I will not engage in anything that suggests I approve of their lifestyle. What they choose to do is none of my business.
    These kinds of issues are not going without specific outcry. The two major Christian TV networks are making lots of noise. I would hope churches do as well. I do and mine does.
