Move over Chick-fila, Orlando Magic has been put on the “Haters” list by those who want to redefine marriage. Wow, I wonder how Mayor Buddy Dyer will feel if Orlando falls from the ranks of the nation’s gay-friendliest cities! The Orlando Magic is owned by the DeVos family, founder of Amway. Far left radicals have discovered that the DeVos family’s Christian foundation contributed to the National Organization for Marriage which protects traditional marriage. It appears that the next on the radical left’s list to attack may be the Catholic Church itself. The leader of the boycott indicated that only the Knights of Columbus has contributed more to the
traditional marriage cause HATE groups than the DeVos Foundation.
Huffington Post reports:Amway, the Michigan-based direct selling company, has been linked to an anti-gay marriage group, and now a prominent activist for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community is calling for a boycott.The Douglas and Maria DeVos Foundation, a foundation that “seeks to share the importance of their Christian faith,” is supported financially by Amway president Doug DeVos. The company donated $500,000 to the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) in 2009, according to ABC News.That donation was used to fight equal rights across the nation, which is why Fred Karger, president of the LGBT advocacy group, Rights Equal Rights foundation, is asking for a boycott of Amway and its affiliates, including the Orlando Magic basketball team, which is owned by DeVos’ father and Amway co-founder Richard DeVos.

Showing no sign of succumbing to the bully tactics of the left, Amway stated that the company president, Doug DeVos, has a right to do what he wants with his personal money. In fact, the company points out the owners “believe the highest calling of any individual is to express their own personal beliefs.”
“As private citizens, the DeVos family supports causes and organizations that advocate for policies aligned to their personal beliefs,” said an Amway spokeswoman in a statement.
So it looks like we conservatives can enjoy our chicken sandwich, catch a Magic game and all the while be supporting our Christian values!
