Florida Republican Gov. Crist Won’t Push Anti-Marriage Amendment

Jim Burroway

December 28th, 2007

The signatures are in and the campaign is on. Florida will be voting on a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriages — marriages which are already banned under state law. The Florida Republican Party put up nearly three-fourths of the funding to gather signatures, funding which abruptly ended when Gov. Charlie Crist took office and instructed the state GOP to not contribute any further. And now that the proposal has been certified to appear on the ballot, Gov. Crist has declined to offer his endorsement:

And even though he signed a petition to support the same-sex-marriage ban while he was running for office, he says he’s not interested in pushing the issue anymore.

“It’s not something that moves me,” he said last week.

Although I’m against an anti-gay amendment, I’m even more against hypocritical politicians who say one thing while campaigning and do another once in office. Shame.

Too bad the press has been hiding this Crist political posturing information from the public.

Crist should not be in that office.

This country was founded on God-fearing Christians and the Bible came first then and should be fore-front today. Scripture is totally clear on the gay issues.

I pray that Florida has enough citizens of faith to pass this one in November. I don’t give a hoot what this RINO governor says.
