Terry Caster and family major funders of CA Prop. 8Jul 30th, 2008 | By Jody May-Chang | Category: Uncategorized
Californians Against Hate are not stopping at boycotting Doug Manchester, a wealthy resort owner who donated $125,000 to get the homophobic Proposition 8 on the November ballot in California that, if passed will remove same-sex marriage rights granted by the state Supreme Court last month. Now the group is going after the next big fish and Manchester friend, Terry Caster.
In March Caster told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he believes that marriage between a man and a woman is fundamental to society. “Without solid marriage, you are going to have a sick society,” Caster said.
Californians Against Hate state that Caster and his family have contributed nearly $300,000 to the Protect Marriage campaign. Fred Karger, spokesperson for the group, says, “That makes the Caster family the biggest contributors from San Diego County, where 35% of the money came from to qualify Proposition 8 for the November 4th ballot.”
Other sources indicate the overall amount from the Caster clan is actually much higher, with $445 from Terry Caster alone as CEO of Caster Family Enterprises.
Acting as the “truth squad” so Americans can know just where the money is coming from that is supporting that anti-gay Proposition, Karger says, “People can chose whether or not they want to patronize the businesses owned by these major donors.”
