An Open Letter and Invitation To:
Florida Christian Pastors and Leaders
For Immediate Release: Sent via e-mail to:
Saturday, October 18, 2008
Dear Christian Pastor or Leader:
We at Citizens For A Better America (R) (CFABA.ORG) are
sending this Open Letter to Christian Pastors and Leaders in the state
of Florida with public e-mail addresses on public websites. If you have
received this Open Letter by mistake, my apologies.
Please Note: Some who are opposed to "Protection of
Marriage" amendments have among other things accused us of spamming.
The sending of this "Open Letter supporting Constitutional Amendment 2"
is completely compliant with all state and federal laws including the
CAN-SPAM ACT of 2003, but if you are unhappy you received this e-mail
please put remove in the subject line and reply to this e-mail and we
will remove you from our list and confirm we have done so by e-mail. If
however you decide to write to us anything more than just remove me
then we consider those comments to be an "Open Letter" to us. Please
read sections 9 of our Email Policy by clicking on the following link: http://www.cfaba.org/cf01022.htm#9
I am writing you about a solemn issue that I believe we as
Christian Leaders need to address.
It is my hope, desire, and goal to both educate you as well
as encourage you to do all you can to protect marriage between one man
and one woman.
If you believe with me that homosexual marriage is not
supported by the Word of God, the Holy Bible, then please continue to
read this letter.
Please allow me to briefly introduce myself. My name is
Robert Colaco. I am the Volunteer National Chairman and Founder of
Citizens For A Better America (R) (CFABA.ORG). I founded Citizens For A
Better America (R) (CFABA.ORG) on October 15, 1992 for the primary
purpose of electing morality and values based candidates to public
office from the very lowest to the highest political positions all over
the United States of America.
Ever since our founding we have taken positions on ballot
measures in California as well as across the United States of America.
I am writing you this open letter to encourage your support
of Constitutional Amendment 2.
If you have not already looked it over, on page two (2) of
the Florida State voter guide titled, "Proposed Constitutional
Amendments to be Voted on November 4, 2008" it states the following:
ARTICLE I, NEW SECTION
FLORIDA MARRIAGE PROTECTION AMENDMENT
This amendment protects marriage as the legal union of only one man and
one woman as husband and wife and provides that no other legal union
that is treated as marriage or the substantial equivalent thereof shall
be valid or recognized.
Financial Impact Statement:
The direct financial impact this amendment will have on state and local
government revenues and expenditures cannot be determined, but is
expected to be minor.
ARTICLE I, NEW SECTION
DECLARATION OF RIGHTS
Inasmuch as marriage is the legal union of only one man
and one woman as husband and wife, no other legal union that is treated
as marriage or the substantial equivalent thereof shall be valid or
