Did you know that PayPal is making it easy for some of the world's most violent anti-LGBT hate groups to raise money online to fund their hateful agendas?
One of the groups using PayPal, Abiding Truth Ministries, frequently sends their leader Scott Lively on trips to build a standing army of extremists dedicated to discriminating against LGBT people. After one of these trips, Lively bragged that he delivered a “nuclear bomb against the gay agenda in Uganda." Just days later, his Ugandan hosts introduced the horrifying “Kill the Gays” bill.
PayPal already has a policy that prohibits use of its service “for activities that [...] promote hate, violence, racial intolerance” - but groups like Abiding Truth Ministries - and 10 others we've found - are falling through the cracks. If enough of us speak up, PayPal will shut down the accounts before these groups raise even one more dollar. Please join me in asking PayPal put hate out of business by shutting down their accounts and banning all anti-LGBT extremists:
