UNDATED (AP) - Voters in California, Florida and Arizona will decide Tuesday whether their state constitutions should define marriage as the union of a man and a woman.
Passage of the measures would preserve traditional marriage in Florida and Arizona, and would put an end to same-sex marriage in California, where it's been legal since June.
The issue has divided religious groups, depending on whether they view homosexual behavior as sinful.
Roman Catholics, Mormons, Southern Baptists and members of the
Lutheran Church Missouri Synod are among religious groups that have
campaigned for traditional marriage.
Episcopalians, Unitarians and the United Church of Christ have opposed the amendments.
