One Million Moms Tell People To Cancel Paypal Over Decision To Pull Out Of North Carolina

pp258The media pressure group One Million Moms is having a hard time of it of late. No one seems to have listened to their campaigns to stop people from sponsoring the Fox TV show Lucifer based on the DC comic book of the same name. So they turned to petitioning the network to drop the show.

Instead, it has been recommissioned for a second season.

Well now they have their least-likely-to-succeed campaign of all. For people to stop using Paypal.

They say it concerns the recently passed North Carolina law that would require people to use the bathroom of the gender assigned on their birth certificate.

Shortly after North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory signed HB2, PayPal announced it was pulling plans to open a new global operations center in Charlotte, which would have created 400 new jobs with an investment of $3.6 million in the area.

In response, we have canceled our use of PayPal and encourage you to do the same.

As a pro-family organization that continually works to strengthen and protect families across America, we cannot sit idly by while a company like PayPal supports laws that punishes a state like North Carolina for protecting women and children.

 

And how does One Million Moms justify their reasoning?

The bullying by PayPal over common sense legislation is reason enough to cancel their services.

That's right, boycotting someone is bullying. This is the viewpoint of One Million Moms, the organisation that boycotts everything from Olive Garden to Red Lobster, depending on where they advertise.

Thing is, Paypal is really, really handy. And convenience beats conscience anytime. Even if you are as nutty as One Million Moms…
