Members of SupportMarriage.org, an organization working to pass the dangerous and deceptive Amendment 2, are traveling the state to urge church leaders to tell their flocks to vote yes. Rev. Clayton Cloer, pastor of Orlando's First Baptist Church of Central Florida, is urging pastors to "wake up" to the notion that the sanctity of marriage needs protection, "speak up" about Amendment 2 and "show up" to vote for its passage.
Also behind the pastoral push is the "Christian Law Association"- whose very nature is puzzling to me since I have this crazy view that like politics, the law should be non-denominational... But that's just me, I guess.
This group of bias-pushers is also spreading a scare campaign by saying that if Amendment 2 doesn't pass, "Christians will be taken to court and punished for speaking to or acting on their beliefs." Scare-mongering and lies? That doesn't sound very Christian to me.
I am beyond tired of these fundamentalists pushing their narrow views on all of us. Using religion, which can be a beautiful and comforting thing, as a wedge to take away the rights of others is beyond despicable.
