If we learned anything about Rachel Maddow from her MSNBC show, it’s that she’s a big fan of instant karma.
As The Advocate reported, Christian evangelist Franklin Graham was so upset with banking titan Wells Fargo on account of its commercial featuring a lesbian couple adopting a deaf child, he announced a plan to boycott the popular bank and switch to another one.
But as Maddow was happy to report, his plan backfired in the best — and gayest — way possible.
As it turns out, the new bank that Graham switched his financial accounts to — North Carolina-based BB&T — is actually a platinum sponsor of the annual Miami Beach Gay Pride festival and parade, one of the country’s biggest pro-LGBT celebrations.
"I love this story so much I want to take it to Franklin Graham's new bank and marry it ... if it's a lady," Maddow said on her show.
Graham is defending his decision to switch banks and his call for a boycott. Click here for that report.
“Franklin Graham threw a Facebook hissy fit and moved his accounts because of a commercial showing two women adopting a deaf little girl, but it turns out his new bank is so much gayer than his old bank,” said Maddow. “The universe has a way of making these things work out!”
