A group of Fort Lauderdale Democrats rallied behind an amendment to the state Constitution that would make it harder for a judge to overturn Florida's same-sex marriage ban.
A ballot measure to ban gay marriage has already won the support of many religious leaders and Republican politicians.
On Tuesday, it received another endorsement -- this time from a group of Democrats.
In a press conference headlined by Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jim Naugle, the community leaders -- including pastors and civic activists -- said marriage should be defined as the union between a man and a woman.
Amendment 2, if passed by voters on Election Day, would do just that by changing the Florida Constitution to say, ``No other legal union that is treated as marriage or the substantial equivalent thereof shall be valid or recognized.''
Gay marriage is already illegal in Florida, but the proposal -- if approved by 60 percent of voters -- would make it difficult for a judge to overturn.
See we are being used to get these jerks into office only. At least the GOP tells us to our face that they hate us, the Democrats do it behind our backs.
