Christian Family Coalition (CFC) Endorses Julio Robaina, a common-sense, fair-minded, pro-life, pro-family candidate for mayor of Miami-Dade County

MIAMI-Today, the Christian Family Coalition, (CFC), Florida's largest human rights and social justice advocacy organization endorsed Julio Robaina for Mayor of Miami-Dade County.

"After a long and deliberative process which included a careful screening and thoughtful discussions with all the major candidates for mayor of Miami-Dade County, the Christian Family Coalition Candidate Qualifications Committee believes Julio Robaina is the most qualified candidate for Mayor of Miami-Dade County", stated Rev. Keith Butler, member, Christian Family Coalition Candidate Qualifications Committee.

Mayor Robaina has a proven track record of balancing the budget in the city of Hialeah, without raising taxes. 

Julio Robaina supports:

-The sanctity of human life

-Protecting marriage and believes marital benefits should be reserved for the the union of one man, one woman

-Instituting a County-wide Faith-based advisory board

-Protecting all people from discrimination, including Christians

As mayor of the city of Hialeah he issued a "Sanctity of Human Life Day" proclamation, in remembrance of the women and children who have died in the tragedy of abortion.

Julio Robaina supports the Marriage Protection Amendment, (Amendment 2), overwhelmingly approved by Florida voters 62% - 38% in November, 2008, which supports and protects marriage and all of its benefits for the union of one man, one woman.

As mayor of the city of Hialeah, he instituted a Faith-based advisory board, which he has promised to bring to the county.

The race for Miami-Dade Mayor will be difficult and will require the strength of our community to secure a common-sense, fair-minded pro-life, pro-family candidate. Only 9,000 votes separated Julio Robaina from his opponent in the special election. I don’t need to remind you of what can happen if we do not have an family friendly Mayor of Miami-Dade.

Between now and June 28th, we will need your help. Here is how you can make THE difference:

· HOST A PHONE BANK- Gather friends, call neighbors & members of our community, get out the vote for Julio Robaina.

· VOLUNTEER - Get people to vote, take a small army of volunteers over the next few days to encourage others to vote.

You support tearing apart people who have made a commitment to one another, that is not Christian. You support causing pain to people on their sick bed, that is not Christian and you support a known loan shark? That is not Chrstian.
Your agenda of self-righteous judgement will not prevail in this election.
Shame on you all for pretending to be Christian while spreading hate and judgement in the world.
