Conservatives have criticized Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos' support for gay marriage as he buys The Washington Post.

Last year, Bezos gave $2.5 million to the campaign to uphold a marriage equality law approved by Washington state lawmakers.

On Monday, news broke that Bezos had agreed to purchase The Washington Post for $250 million.

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM), the nation's most vociferous opponent of marriage equality, greeted the news with the headline, Get Ready for Washington Post to Get a Whole Lot More One-Sided About Marriage Debate.

“Those expecting an ideological shift at the Post … will likely be disappointed,” NOM wrote in the blog post.'s Dan Gainor called the news “bad,” saying that it likely means that the Post “won't change [its] 'values.'”

And Bryan Fischer of the Christian conservative American Family Association (AFA) tweeted: “New owner of WaPo gave biggest donation IN HISTORY to cause of sodomy-based marriage.”
