God and the Florida constitution



"We did it -- You did it -- And ultimately God did it! After four long years of hard work and some rather stunning opposition along the way, the Florida Marriage Protection Act is now a permanent part of the Florida Constitution under Article I, Section 27. This is simply a remarkable and historical victory," wrote John Stemberger, who ran the campaign to ban gay marriage in the constitution, in a letter to supporters.

Later, he added: "The day before the election former President of the United States Bill Clinton made a quarter of a million robo calls trying to scare people into voting no on 2! We prayed that God would give us favor higher than any sitting President."
