I have written about how billionaire Paul Singer funded GOP politicians to make it acceptable for them to become pro-gay marriage if they lost Christian money. Singer has a gay son. Terry Bean, who I wrote about when arrested for raping a teen, was a rich gay founder of LGBT organizations and mega donor and bundler for President Obama. These are wealthy men funding the change they want to see executed by politicians.
This goes even deeper, and Rolling Stone's June profile did all of us a favor in pulling the curtain back on a multimillionaire who funded so much for the LGBT cause in a way to praise him, Tim Gill. This is a fantastic section to describe the high funding this social evolution.
Gill's sprawling network of LGBTQ advocacy groups rivals any big money operation in the country. The Gill Foundation, which he started in 1994, underwrites academic research, polling, litigation, data analytics and field organizing. Gill Action, a political group launched a decade later, has helped elect hundreds of pro-equality lawmakers at the local, state and federal levels. OutGiving, his donor club, coaches the country's richest pro-LGBTQ funders on how best to spend their money.
There is nothing organic to this. This is one homosexual that wants to see his vision of the world accepted, rationalized and justified. Yes, that photo of him with the man thirty years younger than him is his husband.
Gill is not stopping. Even though the Ford Foundation, CIA's old money conduit for social change, has stopped and declared victory, Gill is directing money to go after deep red states. Gill is also going after the religious freedoms moves that states have made to protect those religiously inclined to say no to gays. Religious freedom to not force churches to perform ceremonies or to protect people was a key part of Maryland passing the gay marriage vote as it pacified enough of the black community, along with President Obama saying it was okay to support gays and be black.
This is not a culture war but a religious war. Here is Gill's quote, "We're going into the hardest states in the country. We're going to punish the wicked". Those are the words of a religious man. Sure gays live in the South, but he wants to impose his worldview on them, the wicked. He has matched that religious fervor with over $300 million into his foundation endowment and other organizations.
There is no evolution in ideas. There is a high that uses its wealth and influence to force what it wants on the low. Opinion polls show that support for gay marriage keeps rising, and this is all under the threat of enforcement from top down. Look at everything he funded. Each piece of academic research was written with his money. Polling had quirky wording and selection with his money. Gill bought politicians for his pet cause.
The man on the street just went along. How many 9 figure donors were donating for anti-gay marriage advocacy? Even if they did, they carried the risk of being outed and chased out of polite society or their position in society (see Eich or Chik-fil-a). These mega-donors are aligned with a media/academia complex that wants to see this degeneracy pushed. The money only makes its execution simple. There is no Christian theocracy to be scared about because in no way does it have the resources, the media and academia control and power of the progressive one.
