    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (BP)--A constitutional amendment to protect traditional marriage will be on the November ballot in Florida because supporters gathered 92,000 extra petitions, or signatures, in about two weeks after learning a computer glitch had dropped the previous tally below the 611,000 petition requirement.

    Best way to protect marriage? Don't get a divorce.

    This is just a way to get the "two-issuer voters" to the polls.

    "The text of the proposed amendment says, "Inasmuch as marriage is the legal union of only one man and one woman as husband and wife, ..."


    Sounds like the way God intended it to be.
