Florida Family Policy Council Praises Governor Scott for Veto of “Whiskey and Wheaties”

05/25/2017 0

(TALLAHASSEE, FL) On Wednesday evening, Governor Scott vetoed SB 106, dubbed “Whiskey and Wheaties” by the media. The bill, if passed, would have allowed grocery stores and big box retailers (like Walmart and Target) to sell hard liquor in the same way that they sell other food and consumer products. Currently, hard liquor must be sold in a stand-alone store or a wall must separate the main store and the liquor store. Supporters of the [More…]

Call Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry Immediately and Tell Him to Keep His Promise & Veto the HRO

02/15/2017 0

Last night, the Jacksonville City Council passed a Human Rights Ordinance (HRO) creating a weapon to punish Christians seeking to live and work according to their faith without government interference and allowing men to use women’s showers, locker rooms, bathrooms and dressing areas.  This anti-liberty proposal is the worst possible piece of public policy any elected official could support. It violates the dignity, safety and the security of women and children and disregards religious liberty. [More…]

01/09/2017 0

Members of the Jacksonville City Council have just filed the bad Human Rights Ordinance (HRO) bill again, which was defeated twice before thanks to your efforts.  Do not be fooled.  Despite the claims of “new compromise language,” the new Jacksonville Human Rights Ordinance (HRO) 2017-15, still puts women’s privacy, safety and dignity at risk while using showers, locker rooms, spas and bathrooms by allowing men to use these intimate facilities.  It seeks to allow the [More…]
