Florida and Arizona Voters Approve Marriage Amendment

leave a comment »

It has been confirmed that both Florida and Arizona Voters Approved Marriage Amendment’s to their state’s constitution.  In Florida this was accomplished by 60% or more of the voters saying yes to amending their state’s constitution.

From the Liberty Counsel we read:

Amendment 2 defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman and will prohibit polygamy, group marriage, and same-sex marriage from being recognized in Florida. The amendment states: “Inasmuch as marriage is the legal union of only one man and one woman as husband and wife, no other legal union that is treated as marriage or the substantial equivalent thereof shall be valid or recognized.” This amendment prohibits same-sex marriage or same-sex marriage under a different name. The fight to pass this amendment was a coordinated effort by many individuals, organizations and churches.
