WordPerfect Co-Founder Gave $1 Million to Ban Gay Marriage

In this NY Times story about how the Mormon Church tipped the scales in California’s recent vote on Proposition 8, the proposed gay marriage ban (same-sex marriages have been halted temporarily awaiting court decision on the legality of the discriminatory referendum), there was a mention of about how one Prop. 8 donor, Alan C. Ashton, the grandson of a past president of the Mormon Church, gave $1 million to the campaign. Turns out he’s a co-founder of WordPerfect. Read the story here on cnet.com.

One definite result of Prop. 8: A lot of us are becoming more careful about how we spend our hard-earned rainbow-tinted dollars.

Note to Ashton: Your software sucked anyway.
