An article from USA Today that talks about Amazon’s founder, Jeff Bezos, and his commitment to donate $2.5 million dollars to Washington United for Marriage to help defeat Washington State’s marriage amendment.
The article references other companies standing for marriage equality, including Microsoft, General Mills and JC Penney, and compares them to the recent media flurry surrounding Chick-fil-A.
An interesting read on big business and their role in these debates.
Ellen opens with Prop 8 news around how the measure was deemed unconstitutional this past week.
She also talks about her partnership with JC Penney and how One Million Moms wants to get her fired because she is gay. She goes on to talk about how JC Penney stood by their decision and how excited she is with their partnership (through humor, of course). She also reads some great posts from Facebook (both from One Million Moms and from her and JC Penney supporters).
Thanks Ellen. Thanks JC Penney. You’ve both got a new fan.
