Why Is PayPal Supporting International Hate Groups?

PayPal’s terms of service explicitly say that users “may not use the PayPal service for activities that… promote hate, violence, racial intolerance.” So why is it allowing several international hate groups to use its services?

Let’s take a look at several of their more hatey customers:

Abiding Truth Ministries said that “the Nazi Party was entirely controlled by militaristic homosexuals.” New Generation Ministries says that all homos were raped and abused as kids and now want to do the same to other kids. Noua Dreapt? helped plan violent attacks on Pride parade marchers in Romania and Moldova. The man behind Julio Severo’s Last Days Watchman Site says that gay men “drink urine, swallow feces and experience rectal traumas on a regular basis”, while they are “drunk, stoned or in orgies.” Faithful Word Baptist Church say that “sodomites… recruit through rape and… molestation.” The Family Research Institute calls gay people predatory, diseased perverts. Americans for Truth About Homosexuality call homosexuality a “lethal behavior addiction that is “neither normal nor benign.”

Yawn. We’d be offended if we hadn’t already heard all this from the National Organization of Marriage and their friends.

Anyway, there’s a petition to call PayPal out for violating its own principles. Join in. You never know, you could save a life in Moldova.
