My wife and I and our children bank with SunTrust. We’ve been with them for decades. My business accounts are also with SunTrust.
Then I read an article posted on the DailyCaller website that made by blood boil and just before I was to have a life screening battery of tests.
Here’s the story from the first Daily Caller article about David and Jason Benham who got booted from HGTV because of pressure from a left-wing pro-homosexual and anti-Christian group. The Benham brothers did not lash out. They believed in principle over money.
Soon after the old heave-ho, they got word from SunTrust Banks that their accounts would be closed:
“SunTrust Banks is cutting ties with would-be reality stars David and Jason Benham after liberal activists attacked them for their conservative views on abortion and gay marriage, The Daily Caller has learned.
“In a statement provided first to TheDC on Friday, the Benham brothers confirmed that SunTrust Banks has pulled all of its listed properties with the Benham brothers’ bank-owned property business, which includes several franchisees across four states.
“The move comes just a week after HGTV announced it was canceling a planned home renovation show hosted by the brothers.
“‘If our faith costs us our HGTV show and our business, then so be it,’ said Jason Benham on Friday.
“‘We were caught off-guard with this one,’ David Benham said of SunTrust’s actions. ‘Keeping us off television wasn’t enough, now this agenda to silence wants us out of the marketplace.’”
When my wife and I read the article, we were incensed. I promised that I would use every means at my disposal to get the word out that SunTrust could not be trusted with my money. I would have put the full force of this website and many more under my care to encourage people to pull out their money.
