This is what a 21st Century CEO should be doing!  Jeff Bezos is smart enough to realize that gay marriage benefits EVERYONE!  Are you listening Dan Cathy?
SEATTLE — Amazon.com founder and CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie announced a gift Friday of $2.5 million to the campaign to defend Washington's same-sex marriage law.
Washington United for Marriage says it has raised more than $5 million for Referendum 74 on the November ballot. Last month Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and co-founder Bill Gates each donated $100,000 to the campaign supporting the law.
Referendum 74 was certified for the ballot in May after gay marriage opponents in the group Preserve Marriage Washington turned in more than 240,000 signatures.
The referendum seeks to overturn the law signed in February by Gov. Chris Gregoire. The law was supposed to take effect June 7 but has been put on hold.
A yes vote upholds the law and a no vote overturns it.
