Skip to comments.Gay marriage in Washington: Amazon's Jeff Bezos gives $2.5 million
Posted on 07/27/2012 1:19:16 PM PDT by Uncle Slayton
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie, have given $2.5 million to fund efforts in the state of Washington to legalize same-sex marriage, effectively doubling the current electoral war chest of proponents.
The gift was announced by Washington United for Marriage, the coalition working to pass Referendum 74 in November. It's believed to be the largest individual gift to secure or protect the freedom to marry, the group said in a statement released on its website. Washington is one of four states where the issue of same-sex marriage will be on the ballot this year.

Amazon has no idea how many Pro Family, Anti Sodomite Christians will forever Boycott Amazon!
Sorry, I assumed there was an actual marriage ceremony.
Never fall for the lie that this has anything to do with marriage or equality. This is about legitamizing perversion in our society
What alternatives are there to Amazon?
Pretty much everything on the internet.
Barnes and Noble.
At this rate, there won't be anyone left for me to do business with.
“What alternatives are there to Amazon?”
Someone posted bonanza.com on another thread. I’ve used Amazon regularly since 2000. I prefer to wait 3-5 days than get something immediately from Wal-mart. Living in Las Vegas, I don’t go out and battle traffic unless absolutely necessary. No more Amazon for me, and I currently have an order in transit. No more of my Kindle Fire. I won’t be able to use it and not think about Amazon supporting sodomy. I’m sickened that the profits they’ve made off me have gone for supporting that.
Amazon is an Anti Christian organization that discriminates against families consisting of a man and a woman.
I think we need to boycott them.
Drat! My daughter recently gave me a new Kindle Fire and I love it. What to do to download books — any suggestions?
So why isn’t this “controversial” or “causing a stir” like the Chick-Fil-A deal is? Huh, LA Slimes? No slant to your “stories”, huh?
Smash the Kindle.
Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie certainly got it right when they created Amazon. It is a great website that I use frequently.
Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie should not support heresy; it will do them no good, nor will it help Amazon. Maybe a competitor to Amazon will appear on the horizon. I would go there.
While these folks understand the market need for a web based retail business, they do not understand basic biology, sexual union, and the purpose of marriage between a man and an woman. I hope and pray that they repent.
“What alternatives are there to Amazon?”
I can’t speak to all manner of goods, but I found a toaster oven I’ve been looking for at the local Belks. It’s the same price as amazon. I know where I’ll be buying my oven, and the place doesn’t start with the letter “A.”
Probably just as many as boycott Apple, right?
I assume you’re giving up computers too since Apple is run by a gay guy and the Bill Gates Foundation supports liberal causes worldwide?
Time to boycott Amazon. Buy your books at a used book store or another online outlet.
“I assume youre giving up computers too since Apple is run by a gay guy and the Bill Gates Foundation supports liberal causes worldwide?”
Maybe I’ll switch to Linux. I still have the right to pick and choose who I patronize. Also, I don’t have an Apple computer and I haven’t seen where Bill gates gave in support of Gays.
I have had an Amazon account for years. I did give them plenty of business.
I just cancelled my account and will send out the information on this God-hating liberal far and wide.
I was just looking into buying a Kindle Fire for my wife’s birthday. I no longer am.

Somebody correct me if I’m wrong, but Ref. 74 would repeal what the WA Legislature passed, which was same-sex marriage. So Bezos would be donating to a group that OPPOSES Ref. 74.
Thanks for sharing that.
I’m off Amazon as of now.
It is disappointing to see things like this happen, but people are foolish if they think they are doing business with companies that don’t support liberal causes. It is the feel good, public image of companies anymore.
A law was passed by Washington’s legislature to legalize same sex marriage. Then, a group gathered enough signatures to put a referendum on the ballot to vote yes or no on the law.
Yes on the law means they want it to stay.
No means they want to get rid of it.
Bezos donated to the side running ads for “Vote Yes”. So Bezos and Amazon are advocating for the recognition of same-sex marriages.
Thanks for clearing that up.
Thank you so much!
