Former Governor Jeb Bush Endorses Amendment 8
ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Former Governor Jeb Bush today announced his support for Florida Amendment 8.
"For decades, faith based organizations have provided Floridians with access to high-quality public services including medical care, housing, food, after school programs, and disaster relief. These are basic services that serve Floridians in a time a need," said Governor Bush.
A pending court case in Florida, Council for Secular Humanism v. McNeil, mounts a constitutional challenge to a prison ministry based upon the current law and has the potential of putting every faith-based social service program here in Florida at risk, according to Citizens for Religious Freedom and Non-Discrimination.
"To restrict these organizations from providing this service through government funding is nothing more than discrimination. I encourage all Floridians to vote 'yes' on 8 on election day."
Yes on 8
Citizens for Religious Freedom and Non-Discrimination ("Yes on 8") is focused on ending discrimination against religious organizations and preserving much-need social services through the passage of Amendment 8. Visit www.sayyeson8.com and on Facebook and Twitter @sayyeson8.
