TALLAHASSEE, Fl. - The “Pastor Protection Act” (HB 43) has just passed the Florida House Civil Justice Subcommittee.
In a statement, Carlos Guillermo, Government Affairs Manager for Equality Florida, says he just left a meeting where the bill was approved 9-to-4 by Republicans.
The Pastor Protection act is a proposal that would protect faith leaders from having to perform marriages if they believe such unions would be contrary to their principles.
Guillermo said that none of the democrats on the party line vote supported the bill.
