    A prominent LGBT activist who has donated more than anyone else to LGBT causes has said that "wicked" people who advocate for laws protecting the religious freedom of conservative Christians to act in accordance with their views on marriage and sexuality need to be "punished."The Rolling Stone recently published a lengthy profile piece examining the contributions of Tim Gill, a software entrepreneur who has quietly been at the forefront of the push for same-sex marriage and LGBT rights in the United States over the past several decades.The article explained how Gill, who is gay, has spent over $422 million to advance...
  • Ultra-Rich Gay Activist On Targeting Christians: It’s Time To ‘Punish The Wicked’

    The Federalist ^ | 7/19/17 | Bre Payton
    In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, tech millionaire turned LGBTQ activist Tim Gill said he’s aiming to punish Christians who don’t want to participate in same-sex weddings. For more than two decades, the software programmer has poured an estimated $422 million into various gay rights causes. After the Supreme Court ruled gay marriage legal in all 50 states in 2015, Gill turned his attention and resources to targeting Christians. The election of Donald Trump, who claims to support gay rights but stocked his administration with anti-LGBTQ extremists, has only emboldened those looking to erase the gains of the...

    Free at last! I’m silent no more. Now, the story can be told. Democrats here in my adopted state of Colorado did not want the new political documentary I hosted to see the light of day. They lost. This week, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals issued an emergency injunction declaring that our movie deserved the same free-speech rights as a “traditional” (translation: old-guard liberal) news organization. “Rocky Mountain Heist,” produced by David Bossie’s Citizens United and directed by Jason Killian Meath, tells the story of how a wealthy quartet of liberal millionaires and billionaires in Colorado — known as...
  • Shadowy Dem Operative Looms Large in Recall Fundraising ( Colorado Gun Grabbers )

    The most pivotal figure in the Colorado recall election may be an unseen Kentucky woman who’s directing the Democratic fundraising. Julie Wells, the registered agent for more than two dozen groups since 2006 raising and spending millions to benefit Democrats, is also the registered or designated filing agent for at least two committees contributing funds and airing ads on behalf of Democratic state Sens. Angela Giron and John Morse. Her latest group is We Can Do Better, Colorado, which launched a television spot Thursday accusing Republican recall candidates Bernie Herpin and George Rivera of supporting personhood, the Colorado Democratic Party’s...

    It's such a respectable name for an outfit dedicated to character assassination: Accountability for Colorado. With such respectable men and women behind the respectable front, too. They include two of Colorado's richest citizens, Tim Gill and Pat Stryker, as well as the Colorado Education Association, the AFL-CIO and the corporate leadership of Xcel Energy and Comcast. Gill and Stryker each gave the independent political committee $75,000 in recent months — pocket change for them, perhaps, but serious political money — while the CEA chipped in $105,000, the AFL-CIO $50,000, and Xcel and Comcast 10 grand each. For what purpose? In...
  • Gay Activists Bankroll Opposition to Pro-Marriage State Senator

    07/30/2009 2:31:59 PM PDT · by Gopher Broke · 7 replies · 488+ views
    Gay Activists Bankroll Opposition to Pro-Marriage State Senator by Kim Trobee, editor Pennsylvania state Sen. John Eichelberger, R-Hollidaysburg, sponsored a constitutional amendment in May that would protect marriage from redefinition. In response, activists set up Keystone Progress, an entity dedicated to "progressive" politics in the state, but specializing in bringing down the Republican freshman. The group has ties to Tim Gill and others who have set up similar organizations in other states. The tactic, according to Eichelberger, is designed to send a message to other lawmakers. "They're going to be afraid to come forward, they're going to be afraid to...

    Openly gay Congressman Jared Polis (D.-Colo.) has a peculiar habit of creating enemies. Silicon Valley's movers and shakers loathe him. His fellow rich Colorado gays shun him. And now the media hates him, too! The now-defunct Rocky Mountain News, which published its last edition on Friday, endorsed Polis's opponent in the November election which put him in Congress. He just couldn't resist dancing on the newspaper's grave: "I have to say, that when we say, 'Who killed The Rocky Mountain News,' we're all part of it, for better or worse, and I argue it's mostly for the better," Polis said...

    The amount of money that the Gill Action Fund has contributed to the Log Cabin Republicans — about one-third of its total budget in some years — is raising questions about Democratic influence over the GOP organization and its search for a new president. Tim Gill, founder and chair of Gill Action, is widely known for funding the campaigns of pro-gay politicians, many of them Democrats. He’s a wealthy entrepreneur and founder of Quark who has donated tens of thousands of dollars to various Democratic causes and candidates, including to the campaigns of Sens.

    You might have heard about the Colorado "Restroom Chaos" law signed by Governor Bill Ritter a couple of weeks ago. It allows men who "think" they're women or "feel" like women to use the ladies restrooms and locker rooms. But apparently the law had some more bad stuff in the fine print: politically incorrect Biblical truth has been outlawed in Colorado outside the walls of the church.

    Despite the insistence of the authors of ColoradoPols.com that the site is nonpartisan, during the last election it became increasingly clear the site was nothing more than a vehicle for releasing opposition research on Republican candidates into the mainstream. The reality of the matter is ColoradoPols.com was a stealth project launched with the intention of manipulating media coverage in Colorado to favor Democrats. John J. Miller explained the forces at work behind the scenes in the article “The Color Purple” in the latest issue of National Review: The mini-Soroses of Colorado [Gill, Stryker, & Polis] aren’t merely dabbling in elections...

    Perhaps you've heard those mean-spirited, hyper attack ads on Denver radio slandering Colorado Secretary of State Gigi Dennis. They're sponsored by Clear Peak Colorado, one of those free-wheeling 527 groups that sprang up to get around campaign finance reform laws like McCain- Feingold. This one is bankrolled by Pat Stryker and Tim Gill, a pair of liberal Democrat fat cats who lavishly support a cornucopia of partisan and left-wing causes. According to Clear Peak's most recent IRS filing, through June of this year Stryker and Gill have poured in just under $180,000 to the cause. Former Colorado Democratic Party Chairman...

But the large checks and demanding style wielded by Democracy Alliance organizers in recent months have caused unease among Washington's community of Democratic-linked organizations. The alliance has required organizations that receive its endorsement to sign agreements shielding the identity of donors. Public interest groups said the alliance represents a...
