ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- To ensure continued delivery of vital community social services by religiously-affiliated non-profit organizations while eliminating discrimination against those same groups, Citizens for Religious Freedom and Non-Discrimination today announced the "YES on 8 ad campaign."
The radio spot reads: "Amendment 8 stops religious discrimination. Nothing more. Nothing less. Amendment 8 simply means that our Florida government can continue to partner with faith-based groups – as it has for decades – to provide critical community services like homeless shelters, soup kitchens, and elder care…services our most vulnerable Florida neighbors rely upon."
To see the growing list of endorsers such as former Governor Jeb Bush, Senator Marco Rubio, the News Press published in Ft. Myers, the Northwest Florida Daily News and others visit www.sayyeson8.com/amendment-8-endorsements/.
The ad focuses on the purpose of the amendment rather than rebutting opponent's erroneous claims that Amendment 8 would undermine public education through vouchers. Vouchers remain unconstitutional and nothing in Amendment 8 addresses schools. The amendment also has no effect on the state establishment clause, free exercise clause and public morals clause.
Yes on 8
Citizens for Religious Freedom and Non-Discrimination ("Yes on 8") is focused on ending discrimination against religious organizations and preserving much-needed social services through the passage of Amendment 8 for Florida's Constitution.
