Please help us stop SB 196 (Gay Civil Union Bill) in FL Senate-- One Last Time

Please forward this email to all your friends and family:

It’s back… And needs to be killed one final time.
 
Deceptive Domestic Partnership Bill
to be Heard and Voted on in Florida Senate
Committee Monday, April 1, 2013 at 3:15pm
 
Please call and e-mail the two swing vote senators
below and ask them to VOTE NO to SB-196
  

Apparently emboldened by all the "gay rights" talk in the national news with the US Supreme Court oral argument, this bill will come up again for a vote Monday, April 1st (No April Fool's joke) 2013, in the Senate Children, Families and Elder Affairs Committee and we need you to call two key swing vote senators on the committee today (one more time) asking them to VOTE NO to SB 196
 
Deceptively named by its Democrat sponsor Senator Eleanor Sobel the “Families First” Domestic Partnership bill, this proposed law is intended to lead to same sex marriages as has been the case in every single state that now has civil unions or has legalized same-sex marriages.  See the chart documenting this fact HERE: If you have any doubt why domestic partnerships are bad please check out this chart above and read John Stemberger's Open Letter to the Senate Committee on Domestic Partnerships HERE:
 
This bill is labeled as a Domestic Partnership but the bill is just designed to lead to a full-blown civil union and same-sex marriage measure as evidenced by the previous version of the bill which was a de facto civil union and homosexual marriage bill which would have violated Article One, Section 27, the Marriage Protection Amendment passed by 62% of Floridians in 2008. 
 
We need your help to make sure this BAD BILL will DIE in this committee.  Right now, please send emails and make TWO swing vote phone calls to members of the committee on SB-196 the Domestic Partnership / Gay Marriage bill. 
 
Call the two swing votes: Republican Senators Charlie Dean of North Florida and Senator Miguel Diaz de la Portilla (DLP) and say:
 
"Hi, my name is _____ and I am calling to urge Senator _____ to vote AGAINST SB-196 in the Children & Families Committee on Monday April 1, 2013.  Please VOTE NO on SB 196."
 
CALL THESE
SWING VOTE SENATORS TODAY:

Sen. “Charlie” Dean, Sr. (R) (Inverness)
(850) 487-5005    DISTRICT: (352) 860-5175 Dean.charles.web@flsenate.gov
 
Sen. Miguel Diaz de la Portilla (R) (Miami)
(850) 487-5040   DISTRICT (305) 643-7200 Portilla.miguel.web@flsenate.gov
 
All the Democrats are expected to vote in favor of the bill and only one Republican is likely to vote for it, Nancy Detert.  Republican Senators Alan Hayes, Denise Grimsley and Thad Altman are expected to vote against the bill.
