Today the season ticket holders at Amway Arena in Orlando were met with protestors. Not against basketball, but because Rich DeVos, the owner of the Orlando Magic, had contributed $100,000 to efforts to constitutionally ban same-sex marriage and domestic partnerships in Florida.

DeVos is best known as the co-founder of Amway.

Further reason to boycott him ANYWAY: he’s tied to the Christian Dominionist movement, which seeks out a theocracy in America (a Christian theocracy).

In Michigan he’s touting himself (through various mouthpieces) as a businessman who can save the economy of the state. Sadly, many people are taking him at his word, not realizing that bilking citizens out of money for personal gain is not a plan that is actually going to solve the problems of a state or nation. His dominionist views are well-known, but people are overlooking them in light of the bad economy.
