Focus on the Family dumps Wells Fargo for "pro-homosexual agenda"

Focus on the Family announced it was going to be looking for new bank, because of Wells Fargo's perceived "pro-homosexual agenda." The anti-Gay organization is upset with the bank after its logo appeared on a GLAAD Internet fund-raising campaign.

The Scripps Howard News Service quotes Focus on the Family leaders:

James Dobson, Focus on the Family's chairman, told group followers that Wells Fargo was part of a larger trend in which "gay and lesbian activist groups have picked off all the big companies in the United States."

Focus CEO Jim Daly said 49 of the Top 50 Fortune 500 companies "have adopted pro-gay policies. Looking at the entire list, 85 percent of the Top 500 companies have done so."

Daly was probably referring to the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index, which rates rates businesses on their treatment of Gays.
