Florida to vote on anti-gay marriage amendment in November 2008
December 13, 2007

Florida voters will have to chance to vote on how the state defines marriage after state officials confirmed today that anti-gay marriage groups have secured the required 611,089 signatures to place an amendment banning same-sex marriage on the November 2008 ballot. The efforts by conservatives to place a marriage amendment on the ballot are not new (gay marriage opponents tried unsuccessfully to place a marriage amendment on the ballot in 2006) and have been vigorously opposed by marriage equality supporters, including Equality Florida and the bipartisan Florida Red and Blue.

Florida Governor Charlie Crist (R) has signed the petition, although he has condemned the state GOP - which is the primary financial backer of the group advancing the anti-gay signature campaign - for spending money to place the amendment on the ballot.

Constitutional amendments in Florida require 60% of the vote to pass.

Once again, the GOP displaying its "compassionate conservatism (fascism)".
