The quotes, below, are from Christian Family Coalition, a Miami, FL based fundamentalist group. I have no idea what an “anti-voting extremist” is. As for Windsor, these people tend to read only what they like. Justice Kennedy was perfectly clear when he wrote that state marriage laws must respect the constitutional rights of citizens. I am trying to imagine some drooling cretin saying to himself; “Yeah. They’re right. Marriage equality already exists in Florida.” They have not responded to email requesting clarification on their opinion on Windsor.

Anyway, here’s your daily helping of bat guano (via an email blast). They cannot help themselves:

CFC responds to attack on Marriage in Florida!

“A small band of anti-voting extremists have disrespected millions of Florida voters by filing a discriminatory lawsuit seeking to overthrow Florida’s constitution and the constitutional respect for the institution of Marriage as the union of one man, one woman.”

This issue is one of settled law. The U.S. Supreme Court, in last June’s Windsor case, reiterated that states have the ‘historic and essential authority to define the marital relation.’

Marriage equality already exists in Florida. All Floridians have the equal right to marry under the same equal terms and conditions. However, no one, be it the plaintiffs in this lawsuit or a member of the judiciary, has the right to overthrow the will of the people and inflict disrespect on the Constitution and the institution of Marriage. Certainly, no ethical, responsible judge would tyrannically overturn the will of Florida voters.”
