A staggering $20 million has been donated by Mormons to Proposition 8, the California initiative that, if passed, will overturn the court decision legalizing same-sex marriage in California.
No On Prop 8 revealed that $1 million came from a single donor, a software magnate and son of a former president of the LDS. He seems to be the black sheep of his ilk as dozens of business leaders of the tech industry have come out against the initiative.
“The Mormon Church deserves the same respect as all religions,” said NO on Prop 8 Executive Committee Member Geoff Kors. “But it is wrong for the Mormons to push their view of marriage on every Californian through the ballot box.”
