CFC responds to attack on Marriage in Florida!
"A small band of anti-voting extremists have disrespected millions of Florida voters by filing a discriminatory lawsuit seeking to overthrow Florida's constitution and the constitutional respect for the institution of Marriage as the union of one man, one woman."
This issue is one of settled law. The U.S. Supreme Court, in last June's Windsor case, reiterated that states have the 'historic and essential authority to define the marital relation.'
Marriage equality already exists in Florida. All Floridians have the equal right to marry under the same equal terms and conditions. However, no one, be it the plaintiffs in this lawsuit or a member of the judiciary, has the right to overthrow the will of the people and inflict disrespect on the Constitution and the institution of Marriage. Certainly, no ethical, responsible judge would tyrannically overturn the will of Florida voters."
