  • by: James Smith Sr. 02/05/09

TALLAHASSEE (FBW) – The man who last year led the successful effort to amend Florida’s constitution to protect traditional marriage says it’s now time for pastors, churches and individual Christians to examine their own marriages, asking “hard questions” about why the Sunshine State leads the nation in divorce.

At a Feb. 3 Tallahassee news conference, John Stemberger, president of Florida Family Policy Council, announced “Strong Marriages Florida,” a campaign that will seek a 10 percent reduction in the state’s divorce rate, saving taxpayers $100 million per year.

Other goals of the campaign are to increase the number of couples receiving premarital counseling, strengthening existing marriages, and creating community awareness that celebrates marriage.
