America’s Chief Anti-Gay Marriage Strategist
Frank Schubert is managing four statewide campaigns to try to stop gay marriage.
For Schubert, a stocky, white-bearded 56-year-old, the cause has been a perfect union of his professional background and personal values.
Earlier this year, Schubert gave up the 15-member consulting firm he co-founded in California, which he said billed $2.5 million in a slow year, to become a one-man shop in a field that is “far less lucrative.” But he said his work “has deepened my own faith, deepened my own marriage.”
He said not everyone understands his choice, even in his own family. Schubert has a younger sister raising children with her lesbian partner.
“I love my sister very much, and I wanted her to know that my working on this issue was not a reflection of me seeing her as a less valuable person,” he said.
