Money: Howard Ahmanson Jr.

"The Episcopal Church split is only a small part of Ahmanson's concerted efforts to radically transform not only American religion, but the nation's moral culture and, thereby, the country itself. His money has made possible some of the most pivotal conservative movements in America's recent history, including the 1994 GOP takeover of the California Assembly, a ban on gay marriage and affirmative action in California, and the mounting nationwide campaign to prove Darwin wrong about evolution. His financial influence also helped propel the recent campaign to recall California Gov. Gray Davis. And besides contributing cash to George W. Bush's 2000 presidential campaign, Ahmanson has played an important role in driving Bush's domestic agenda by financing the career of Marvin Olasky, a conservative intellectual whose ideas inspired the creation of the new White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.

After more than 20 years of politically oriented philanthropy, Ahmanson is now emerging as one of the major financial angels of the right, putting him in the company of Richard Mellon Scaife, the oil and banking heir who bankrolled the groundwork for much of the conservative movement's apparatus and became a household name in the 1990s thanks to his $2.4 million dirty-tricks campaign against President Bill Clinton."

Quotes

  • "My goal is the total integration of biblical law into our lives. (Orange County Register, 1985)
Links
  • Three New Testament Roots of Economic Liberty, by Howard Ahmanson, Religion & Liberty 1997
    Ahmanson makes the biblical argument for no minimum wage, no right to healthcare, and no requirement for compassion towards the poor - good thing god made him a wealthy man (he inherited $300,000,000 from his dad at age 18)!
