Pastor Farris Wilks

A Texan bricklayer turned billionaire, Pastor Farris Wilks grew up in a goat shed but now owns an airport and his own aircraft. Firmly anti-gay marriage and often described as a “dirt farmer”, Wilks and his brother Dan made their fortune in oil and gas and gave £9.7 million ($15 million) to the Republican Presidential contender Ted Cruz in September 2015. Of his contribution, this moral crusader and owner of 398,000 acres across Idaho and Montana commented: “We support [him] because he believes in the morality of the free market, in keeping our country safe, and in the right of the unborn not to be killed in their mother’s womb”.
