PayPal Has Stopped Funding Four Anti-Gay Hate Groups, But Six Remain

A few weeks ago, AllOut.org spearheaded a petition asking PayPal to revoke the accounts of ten international anti-gay hate groups for “[promoting] hate, violence, racial intolerance” in violation of PayPal’s terms of service. PayPal initially fretted over these groups’ “religious rights,” but with over 37,000 petition signatures PayPal finally discontinued the accounts for Truth in Action Ministries, Brazilian extremist Julio Severo’s sites, Noua Dreapta, and Dove World Outreach Center. Nevertheless, the six remaining hate groups continue to collect money through the online payment site. Perhaps another 37,000 signatures would help?

    So where is the link to petitions to sign to get those off! Put them with AVAAZ or on CHANGE and get it done!

    Thanks Queerty for covering the campaign! We really need to spread the word to make sure PayPal drops these extremist groups. Do you think you could add a link to the petition at http://allout.org/paypal ?

    Who are the remaining 6?

    We must keep signing until demands are met.

    You all are great examples of the Hate and Intolerance you seek to find in others!

    @Just A Thought: How is preventing violent groups from getting funding being intolerant?

    Oh, you are one of those “if I can’t oppress others then I’m being oppressed” types.

    Wanker.

    Calling someone a Hater or a Hate group because they don’t agree with your views and espouse diametrically opposed views and trying to put them out of business and shut them up (by preventing from getting funding) sounds both Intolerant and Hateful to me!

    @Just A Thought: So by your logic, people should just completely ignore hate groups and people who demonize others? Yeah, no.
