DAYS OF LOT- Homosexuals Sue to Overturn Florida’s Constitutional Amendment Protecting Marriage


Six homosexuals and their partners have filed a lawsuit in Florida in an effort to overturn the state’s constitutional amendment enshrining marriage as being between a man and a woman. The San Francisco-based National Center for Lesbian Rights is representing the plaintiffs, who were chosen out of a reported 1,000 volunteers. “These laws are out of step and outdated,” legal director Shannon Minter told reporters. “What’s happened over that time period [since the amendment passed] is a real awakening by most people in Florida to the humanity of lesbian and gay people and their families.”  Florida’s constitutional amendment barring the recognition of homosexual unions passed during November 2008 election. It was approved by 61.9 percent of the vote.  “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,” the amendment reads. “Our ultimate goal is to secure a victory in the Florida Supreme Court holding for the entire state that Florida’s marriage ban is unconstitutional, so that everyone in the state would be able to marry,” Minter stated. But John Stemberger of the Florida Family Policy Council wrote in a news release on Tuesday that he believed the lawsuit was nothing more than a “publicity stunt.” More
