The Hypocrisy of PayPal
PayPal has vowed to discontinue the expansion of its services in North Carolina after its governor passed a law to protect women and children against homosexual predators by not allowing biological men to use women’s restrooms and locker rooms.
In answer to the PayPal boycott, on Facebook Franklin Graham, son of the legendary evangelist Billy Graham, said, “PayPal gets the hypocrite of the year award!… 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’s boycott against North Carolina, the land of Billy Graham, makes no sense, since PayPal has no boycott policy against Saudi Arabia and other Muslim nations that arrest, torture and kill homosexuals.
A “small” hypocrisy eventually leads to bigger hypocrisy. The PayPal hypocrisy began in 2011, after an international campaign against ten pro-family activists, including me, Julio Severo. The campaign accused us of “homophobia,” PayPal accepted its lies and closed my account definitively. The campaign was orchestrated by U.S. homosexualist group AllOut, denounced by WND (WorldNetDaily), which run this headline: PayPal blacklists Christian writer.
PayPal has never discontinued its services to Saudi Arabia and other Muslim nations in a boycott against their “homophobia.” I was targeted exclusively because of my Christian values and stances.
The official PayPal answer to my case was very hypocritical. To me, PayPal explained that I am ineligible to receive donations from my friends and readers because “you are not a registered non-profit organization.” To AllOut, PayPal explained that it closed my account because “We take very seriously any cases where a user has incited hatred, violence or intolerance because of a person’s sexual orientation”.
Since 2011, I have been hindered from receiving donations from my friends through PayPal.
In a listing of the top ten anti-Christian acts in 2011, the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission ranked the gay pressure on PayPal as fourth top anti-Christian act, as reported by Charisma magazine.
