My goal is the total integration of biblical law into our lives.” Howard F. Ahmanson
According to the Californians Against Hate Dishonor Roll:
Howard F. Ahmanson donated $1,395,000 to the “Yes on 8” campaign.
Fieldstead & Co. is a company owned by the heir of the Home Savings & Loan fortune, Howard “Howie” Ahmanson, Jr. is a major contributor to numerous far right religious political causes. His past association with R.J. Rushdoony’s controversial Christian Reconstructionist movement was an early influence on Ahmanson’s political viewpoint. Ahmanson has stated that his “goal is the total integration of biblical law into our lives.”
Referring to his close friend Rushdoony, Ahmanson is reported to have “never supported his mentor’s calls for the death penalty for homosexuals,” rather, as the Orange County Register reported many years later in 2004, “he stops just short of condemning the idea”, saying that he “no longer consider[s] [it] essential” to stone people who are deemed to have committed certain immoral acts. Ahmanson and his wife Roberta completed a four part interview with the Orange County Register in 2004 in an attempt to clarify the rumors that swirled around them.
