News release from Log Cabin Republicans of Miami:
Log Cabin Republicans of Miami again stand dismayed at the assumptions of some Republican leaders. Last week Attorney General Pam Bondi stated she would uphold Florida’s Constitutional Amendment passed by voters in 2008, but that was 6 years ago. A lot changes in 6 years, including voter opinion. Quinipac’s recent poll dated 4/30/14 in Florida shows support for same sex marriage polling at 56-39, that’s is a 17 point margin in favor. Equality is what the voters of Florida want in 2014. In regards to “significant financial and logistical problems for the state's pension and health insurance programs if same-sex marriages were recognized”, we would like to challenge the Attorneys office to show us – the voters – some proof that this is, indeed, the case. As of today, there has been no such evidence to substantiate this claim. We here at Log Cabin Republicans of Miami believe 100% in Individual Liberty and Personal Freedom. Here is the bottom line, opposing gay and lesbian equality is inconsistent with the GOP’s core principles of smaller government and personal freedom. Let’s stop excluding and start including ALL conservatives and ALL people and stand on our strong platform of Limited Government, Strong National Defense & Individual Liberties.
