The Daily Beast reports:
The National Christian Charitable Foundation (NCF), the nation’s sixth-largest charity and one of the biggest bankrollers of organizations currently on the front lines in the fight against the Equality Act. The NCF’s list of high-dollar donors include some of the country’s richest and most powerful families.
Among them: Betsy DeVos’ eponymous family foundation, as well as the private foundations of the Anschutz oil dynasty, the late Republican megadonor Foster Friess, Hobby Lobby, and Dan Cathy, the billionaire owner of Chick-fil-A, the six-days-a-week fast foot chain which promised to stop donating to anti-LGBT causes last year.
Read the full article. Much of the NCF’s money is being funneled to the Alliance Defending Freedom, which, as the article notes, advocates for criminalizing homosexuality in the United States. Read it.
Instead of becoming law, The Equality Act is falling victim to what one LGBTQ movement leader called one of “the most sophisticated dark money operations” they’ve ever seen https://t.co/CvftD0GUSx
