Amendment 2 Proponets Tell Supporters To Break the Law

I’m loathe to include the video or the link, lest we give them more traffic, but this video seems to be a direct request by religious right nutjob Mat Staver to Floridians to break the law:

Staver actually wrote Amendment 2 and is pushing the for people to sign petitionsnot just once, but twice:

2:19: “even if someone has already signed it, it doesn’t matter. They can sign it again.”

He explains that they can go ahead and sign the petition again, even if they’ve already done so and that the government will sort them out. Forget that this is the direct encouragement of waste in government, it is also illegal:

A person who knowingly signs a petition or petitions for a candidate, a minor political party, or an issue more than one time commits a misdemeanor of the first degree…

Showing once again, that nothing to do with this Amendment has anything to do with right or wrong, Staver is telling his followers to break the law in an attempt to add hate to the Florida Constitution.

These people are trying to win at all costs for political reasons…

  1. One thing I do not understand is why you guys do not listen to Mr. Stemberger. He has said SO many times why we need the marriage amendment. You guys keep arguing that we do NOT need it because there is already a law…a law is not definite, as you see in California. Judges can interpret a law but they cannot interpret or change an amendment. That is why we proponents of the amendment see a need for it. Marriage is to be only one thing…what it has always been since the beginning of time…..the union between one man and one woman. The amendment will NOT mess with the benefits or whatever that gay couples want. That has been proven.

  2. Wow, if that is what you really think then maybe you should read this article. I agree with you, judges can interpret the law anyway they want, and once an amendment is made they are free to interpret that as well.

    The amendment itself won’t mess with benefits “or whatever” gay couples want, but the judge who interprets the amendment will. That has been proven also, I am backing up my statement with fact, where are your “proven” facts?

  3. >One thing I do not understand is why you guys do not listen to Mr. Stemberger.

    Because he’s a lying hatemonger.

    >He has said SO many times why we need the marriage amendment. You guys keep arguing that we do NOT need it because there is already a law…a law is not definite, as you see in California. Judges can interpret a law but they cannot interpret or change an amendment.

    None of this is true. Amendments are often vague and can be interpreted.

    >That is why we proponents of the amendment see a need for it.

    No, the reason you see a need for it is because you are a hatemonger.

    >Marriage is to be only one thing…what it has always been since the beginning of time…..the union between one man and one woman.

    This isn’t even remotely true. Throughout most of recorded history, the most common form of marriage was polygamy. Besides, just because something happened a lot in the past doesn’t mean that it is right. Slavery used to be common, it was wrong, too.

    >The amendment will NOT mess with the benefits or whatever that gay couples want. That has been proven.

    No it hasn’t. The language of this amendment is similar to those in other states and in those states, benefits have been taken away. They’re already absent here in Florida, and this would further enforce that.
