Franklin Graham Calls PayPal ‘Hypocrite of the Year’ for Canceling NC Expansion Over Transgender Law

Leading evangelist Franklin Graham has labeled PayPal “hypocrite of the year” after the organization announced Tuesday that it is aborting its plan to open an operations center in Charlotte, North Carolina, because of an objection to the state’s recently passed transgender law.The California-based organization, which serves as a popular online payment alternative, announced two weeks ago that it was going to expand to Charlotte with a new operations facility that would have employed about 400 skilled workers.But after North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory signed legislation into law that prohibits the city of Charlotte and other local governments from enacting ordinances that force places of public accommodation to open restrooms to members of the opposite biological sex, the leaders at PayPal decided to take a political stance by abandoning their plans to move to the state.
