In 2008 election, Florida voters overwhelmingly approved a state constitutional amendment protecting traditional marriage. The amendment was placed on the ballot by a citizen-led initiative process. It passed by the large margin of 61.9% to 38.1%.
However, today, Orlando’s city council used the power of its office to defy the people’s will and join the sex activists’ lawsuit to overturn this vote.
In a 5-2 vote, the council approved filing the friend of the court brief in the pending Florida lawsuit threatening to redefine marriage. The two republicans on the council voted no. The mayor was among the five voting in favor.
