There’s good money in bigotry!

A February 23rd article in the Wall Street Journal (subscription only link) offers the inside scoop on the Alliance for Marriage’s Matt Daniels, one of the leading supporters of the constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage:

In July 2001, Mr. Daniels held a press conference announcing the two-sentence text of the proposed amendment: “Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman,” it says, adding that neither the Constitution nor any state or federal law “shall be construed that marital status … be conferred upon unmarried couples.”

“The minute we did that, boom. I don’t know if anybody remembers what we did in our first year and a half,” says Mr. Daniels. Donations to the Alliance surged to $380,153 in 2001 and then to $1.3 million in 2002, according to tax returns. The new funds made it possible to pay six full-time staffers, including Mr. Daniels’ $96,000 salary.

Nice work if you can get it? Sadly, No!
