Overstock.com Exec Starts Political Action Committee (PAC) to Protect Churches From Gays

Overstick

Jonathan Johnson, an executive vice chairman of Overstock.com has started a political action committee (PAC) called the First Freedom PAC to combat what he sees as an assault on the First Amendment and to preserve the role of churches and religious associations in society.

“It makes me feel like if a same-gender couple goes to an orthodox Jewish rabbi and says, ‘Marry us in your synagogue,’ the 22 percent would say he has to say yes,” Johnson said.

“I’m surprised that anyone thinks that the government should force religions to do things,” he said. “But because the religious liberties issue today is so tied to the same-sex marriage issue, I can see why it’s a sore spot for people.”

Overstock.com – Overstocked on bigotry and soon to be even more overstocked on merchandise as LGBT buyers will avoid the retailer site like a plague.
