Franklin Graham, the son of the famed evangelical preacher Billy Graham, is calling on Christians to boycott gay-friendly corporations:

“This is one way we as Christians can speak out – we have the power of choice,” Graham, who heads the Charlotte-based BGEA, wrote on Facebook over the weekend. “Let’s just stop doing business with those who promote sin and stand against Almighty God’s laws and His standards. Maybe if enough of us do this, it will get their attention.”

As of Monday morning, more than 92,000 people had approved of Graham’s message by clicking “Like.” More than 41,000 people had shared his message with their Facebook friends.

No word on which other ‘sins’ he’ll be urging his flock to boycott over. Or maybe the extent of his grief will solely concern the gays.
