Issues

  • Same-sex marriage

Pidgeon is the CEO of BiblePlex.com, and the founder of DecaLogos International and The Faith Coalition, a Washington group that promotes the definition of marriage as between one man and one woman. If elected attorney general, he said he would focus heavily on preventing the legalization of gay marriage.[3]

  • Religious Freedoms

He provided a list of priorities on his 2012 campaign website. Among the list, he cited “protecting the rights of street evangelists to distribute flyers on public sidewalks and citizen journalists to freely assemble, keeping churches from being zoned out of selected areas of Washington cities, and protecting pastors from persecution.”[4]

Personal

Pidgeon lives with his wife and five children in Snohomish, Washington. He has lived in Washington since 1996.[5]
