Information Get the word out on Prop 8 in Florida
http://www.au.org/content/florida-amendment-8

Was listening to Center for Inquiry podcast on Stitcher and learned of this issue.
Have since posted the following on my facebook:
If you live in Florida, please learn more about Prop 8 which you will vote on this Fall, and just say NO to another way to spend your tax dollars!

It is a law to allow tax dollars to be used for private, tax exempt religious organizations and businesses that currently cannot as a result of church/state separation protections. It is marketed as religious freedom, but it is really about tax dollars. Stop the ever increasing subsidizing of "everything" with our tax dollars! We have to stop bleeding money!

This is America. Tithing is and must remain an individual freedom, not a government mandate.

The Right talks of activist judges but it was the supreme court in early 2000s who limited federal standing & merits with respects to the establishment clause. Our state laws in support of the establishment clause are our best hope for staying a strong and secular nation in regards to separation of church and state.

Your beliefs do not make you a better person, your behavior does.

Please Florida do not allow this pass, keep it a private matter.

RE: Get the word out on Prop 8 in Florida
can you direct me to the wording of the amendment? All I am finding is class size regulation.

Humanism - ontological doctrine that posits that humans define reality
Theism - ontological doctrine that posits a supernatural entity creates and defines reality
Atheism - political doctrine opposed to theist doctrine in public policy
I am right, and you are wrong - I hope you die peacefullyCool

There is a good set of articles in Commonweal this month by some pretty impressive legal scholars, who rip the USCCB's statement "Our First Most Cherished Liberty", (in response to the Obama contraception section/negotiations of the health mandate). They seem to apply to this.

I think you'll get a state divided on this issue. Northern Florida will vote in favor of this while sounthern Florida will not.

Tax exempt is a tax subsidy.
When churches pay no tax, others must pay more.
Push to stop indirectly financing religion with tax dollars.

The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.
