Focus on the Family spent millions battling gay marriage this election cycle, and is believed to be the single biggest donor to Amendment 2 sponsors Florida4Marraige (Homophobe in Chief John Stemberger was awarded the "Family Champion Award" by the group, and has close ties to leader James Dobson).
