Ban On Gay Marriage

Florida, like many other states, may be considering a Constitutional amendment that would ban any type of legal unions for gay couples. While the initiative is still in its infancy, and the Petition will need many more signatures before it will get on a public ballot, the fact that there are so many people contributing money to raise awareness of such an initiative shows how people are committed to banning gay marriage. Florida is a state that leans conservative, but still has its share of people who are liberal and would vote to make sure that such an amendment never made it onto Florida's Constitution. While getting this initiative on the ballot is one step, there is still a major issue of actually getting the initiative to pass. Nevertheless, there are people very committed to making sure that marriage continues to be defined as a union between a man and woman. Whether their money, their voice and their initiative make it to election day is another story.
