Last week, Kelvin Williams, founder and owner of 373K, announced his company would depart from Georgia after the State Senate passed FADA. The announcement was picked up by numerous media outlets and sparked a debate within Georgia over the possible economic impact of Religious Freedom legislation.
It should be noted 373K is a telecommunications vendor for the Democratic Party and Kelvin Williams is an openly gay man. It makes sense for him to be displeased about the passage of the First Amendment Defense Act. Given the circumstances, his departure is anything but surprising.
After conducting a bit of research on Kelvin Williams, it turns out the man is a piece of work. His Google+ and Twitter accounts are laden with posts promoting violence, misogyny, Christian-bashing, and rape. It’s pretty sick, actually. Democrats and Republicans jumping to make Mr. Williams the poster-child for the side effects of religious liberty legislation should think twice before using him. He might represent the potential economic impact of religious liberty, but he also represents violence, bigotry, and the rest of the aforementioned ugliness.
We grabbed these screenshots this afternoon from Williams’s public Twitter and Google Plus feeds, and have linked the screenshots to the original posts. You can click any image to make it larger. If the links don’t work by the time you get to them, you can imagine why.
Will is an active member of the Georgia Republican grassroots. He previously served as Chairman of the Georgia Association of College Republicans, 2nd Vice Chairman of the 7th District Republican Party, and Treasurer of the Forsyth County Republican Party. Promise Land = Forsyth County.
