Here’s a post from the No on Prop 2 group on Facebook:

On November 4th, Fla. Prop. 2 passed due in large part to a multi-million dollar disinformation campaign funded by its proponents. This cannot stand! Our Constitution is at risk. Without an informed citizenry, Amendments like Prop. 2 get passed. Amendment 2 does nothing to protect marriage. But it does take away important family protections, health care insurance, hospital visitation and medical decision-making authority, from all unmarried couples, gay and straight. It permanently bans civil unions and dismantles domestic partner benefits that seniors, teachers, police officers and firefighters rely on in more than 18 communities across the state. To maintain the integrity of the people of the State of Florida, PROPOSED AMENDMENT #2 MUST BE REPEALED.

This amendment reads as follows:

“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.”

Fight for the right of ALL Americans!!!

******6 Reasons to Say NO to 2******

Taking Away Benefits
**********************
Amendment 2 could take away existing benefits from all unmarried Floridians.

Hurting Seniors
******************
Amendment 2 could force seniors to choose between important benefits like sharing health care and important government benefits.

“Gay Marriage” Bait & Switch
****************************
Amendment 2 claims to ban “gay marriage” but Florida already clearly defines marriage as only between a man and woman in the state statutes.

Massive Government Intrusion
*******************************
Amendment 2 puts the government where it doesn’t belong – regulating the personal relationships of Floridians.

Hiring Expensive Lawyers
*************************
Amendment 2 could force unmarried Floridians to hire expensive private lawyers just to protect their basic legal rights.

Dramatic Consequences
*************************
Amendment 2 could take away job benefits from university employees and be used as a defense to domestic violence – as has already happened in other states after passing similar amendments.
