45. Or maybe "Ruling Class" is a better descriptor of who donated so heavily
>>The term ruling class refers to the social class of a given society that decides upon and sets that society's political policy.

The ruling class is a particular sector of the upper class that adheres to quite specific circumstances: it has both the most material wealth and the most widespread influence over all the other classes, and it chooses to actively exercise that power to shape the direction of a locality, a country, and/or the world. Most of the upper class does not fit the fundamentals of this description, but some do.

Ruling classes tend to be looked at in a negative light because they are often viewed as having little respect or care about the rights of the inferior classes.<<

The enormous amount of wealthy donors contributing large amounts of money ( $1 million dollars for a single cause???) is really remarkable.

Is it that the ruling class decided to keep gays suppressed and the churches were simply the organizational foot soldiers?

This was probably always business as usual for them but this time, the inter net has made it possible to blow their cover, as donor lists emerge.

Kinda makes one recall the whole vast right wing conspiracy idea. We have seen it in action before.
