Florida, Arizona Ban Gay Marriage


So, it’s official – gay marriage has been banned in Florida:

Florida voters have narrowly approved adding language to the state constitution that bans same-sex marriage.

The constitution will define marriage as only between a man and a woman. Florida already has a prohibition against gay marriage in state law, but supporters say the new definition was important to prevent court rulings allowing same-sex marriage like those in Massachusetts, California and Connecticut.

With 99 percent of the expected vote counted early Wednesday, the amendment had just over 62 percent support. It needed 60 percent to pass.

Meanwhile, in John McCain’s home state of Arizona, voters also decided to prohibit same-sex nuptials. Change may have come to America, but perhaps not for all of us. Shame…
