Lifeway Christian Resources is a “Democrat donating machine,” at least according to a little-known app featured by Forbes, CNET, and Washington Post. Singular in purpose, it shows you a company or brand employee’s political contributions before you make your online or eventual in-person purpose, ensuring the ability to vet companies that are hostile to personal political convictions before they are financially supported.
Progressive Shopper, the Chrome extension that lets you know to which political parties or super PACs your favorite companies or company employees are donating, has the usual mix of big names, giving them ratings based on how liberal or progressive they are.
Cnet records that “Etsy, Lego, REI, and Toms seem to be more interested in ideological purity: All were 100 percent in the Democrats’ column in terms of donations. Meanwhile, The Home Depot, Gymboree, and Citigroup all donated about $2 to Republicans for every $1 they pledged to Democrats.”
Then Lifeway came up. They show that nearly 80% of political donations from their employees went to Democrats, receiving a highly recommended designation from an organization dedicated to promoting progressive bedfellows and beliefs.
According to Progressive Shopper, “The data on the site covers the 2016, 2018, and 2020 election cycles” and all the information comes directly from the FEC, which has a searchable directory that is unwieldy and not user friendly. They further inform that:
“The data provided by the FEC is open to the public and includes:
- donations of more than $200 in a cycle
- the name, address, employer, and occupation of each donor
- the beneficiary of the political donation (for example, candidates, political parties, and independent groups).”
The site then aggregates them all together in a smooth, snappy and concise manner, serving as a quick reference and high-level view to determining if a company you’re about to shop at is woke enough for you to go broken.
Of course, these numbers do line up with FEC reports that records and notes which party Lifeway employees are overwhelmingly contributing to. Some of the names expectedly are relatively high up in the corporate foodchain, but for our purposes, we’ve blurred them all out so as not to distract or make it about individual people.

A CALL TO ACTION
Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by censorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
So we have some great ways for you to EASILY support our work that will take less than 3 minutes of your time to do.
First, check our our page explaining this all at detail at https://supportpolemics.com
But in short, you can support us on Patreon and get exclusive rewards like the FULL non-truncated episodes of the bi-weely Polemics Report podcast ONLY available on your Patreon app. It's super easy to use. Get exclusive updates from JD. Get all that and support our work for only $5.95 a month. You'll also get a PAID subscription to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" once a day for 50 news links to banned content you can't find in social media. For other patron tiers, you can join us live via zoom to interact with JD during the Bulldgomatic Bible study, get free theology books in the mail, and more.
Or, if you don't want to use Patreon and don't want the rewards, subscribe to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" for free (three days a week) or $7 dollars a month (notice that's a dollar more than getting it through Patreon) or $70 dollars a year.
