Florida U.S. Senator Bill Nelson agrees with Christian Family Coalition, rejects Obama on homosexual so-called "marriage" 

More Democratic Senators backing away from Obama, even independent voters reject new position on marriage

 

 

MIAMI-Today, the Christian Family Coalition (CFC), Florida's premier human rights and social justice organization announced that Florida U.S. Senator Bill Nelson agrees with the CFC on homosexual so-called "marriage".  Despite Obama's recent announcement that he NOW supports the imposition of homosexual so-called "marriage" on America, Florida U.S. Senator Bill Nelson, has backed away from Obama's stance.    

According to a story in Saturday's edition of the Hill.com, Nelson said the federal government should not interfere with state laws, here is the statement he issued as it directly relates to marriage: 

“I believe marriage should be left to the states, and Florida voted on same-sex marriage in 2008,” he said in a statement to The Hill.  
 
Florida passed a constitutional amendment respecting marriage and all of its benefits for the union of one man and one woman by a 62% margin, the Christian Family Coalition (CFC) gathered over 60,000 signatures in support of the referendum to help qualify it on the ballot.
 
CFC issued the following statement in response to Senator Nelson's position:

"We applaud Senator Nelson, he respects Florida's constitution.  When your own party rejects you on homosexual so-called 'marriage', you know your position is extreme.  Furthermore, according to a Gallup poll, at least 40% of voters say Obama's new position will affect their vote for him.  Among these, 27% say they are less likely to vote for him, while only 13% say they are more likely to vote for him.  Among those less likely to vote for him, half are independents.  In a close election, such as this one, every single vote counts."

Other Democratic Senators who also reject Obama's new position on marriage include: Sens. Jon Tester (Mont.) and Claire McCaskill (Mo.), Sens. Joe Manchin (W.Va.) and Bob Casey (Pa.).
