Michael Schiavo is campaigning against Amendment 2, the ballot initiative that would put a prohibition on gay marriage in the state constitution. Opponents like Schiavo believe the “Florida Marriage Protection Amendment” will go beyond barring gay marriage and threatens domestic partnerships between heterosexual couples and seniors as well.
Schiavo’s involvement in the anti-Amendment 2 campaign on behalf of Progress Florida, a liberal political group affiliated with Denver-based Progressive Future, reignites his battle with conservative Christians, who support the amendment and waged fought for years to prevent him from removing his wife Terri from feeding and hydration tubes.
“If the radical rightwing leaders behind Florida’s Amendment 2 really cared about the sanctity of marriage, they would have respected mine,” Schiavo, a former Republican, said in an e-mail distributed today.
