Background:

On November 6th Florida voters will be asked to vote YES or NO on Amendment 8, deceptively titled, the “Religious Freedom Amendment”.


Why is it important to education employees?


Amendment 8 could rob badly needed revenue from our public schools at a time when the weak economy has already forced deep budget cuts in our public school funding.


•    Amendment 8, the so-called religious freedom amendment is one of eleven proposed constitutional amendments on the November 6th ballot.
•    But Amendment 8 isn’t about Religious Freedom at all.  
•    It is about taxpayer funding for religion.
•    Amendment 8 undermines the separation of church and state provision currently in the Florida Constitution.
•    Amendment 8 says that the government cannot deny tax dollars to any group or sect claiming to be a religious organization.
•    Amendment 8 would allow taxpayer money to be used to fund religious activities…including religious schools.
