.- Following the recent electoral victory of a marriage amendment proposed for the Florida constitution, homosexual activists plan to demonstrate outside the church wedding and reception of Florida Gov. Charlie Crist next Friday.

The governor is to be married to Carole Rome at the First United Methodist Church of St. Petersburg.

The activist group Impact-Florida has called for its members to gather in pink T-shirts outside the church and plans also to demonstrate outside the wedding reception at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort in downtown St. Petersburg, the Tampa Tribune reports.

“After the positive congratulatory observance, there will be a candlelight vigil close to the [Vinoy] in downtown St. Pete to mourn the loss of gays right to get married,” the group’s web site states.

In fact, same-sex marriage was not established in Florida even before Election Day, when voters passed Amendment 2 with 61.9 percent approval.

Gov. Crist supported the passage of the amendment.

A press statement from the Florida Family Policy Council placed the protest “under the category of lower than low” and claimed the protesters were “crashing” the wedding.

The Florida Family Policy Council encouraged Floridians to support the governor and his fiancé by sending them a wedding card and “earnestly praying for them as they become husband and wife.”
