See, It's Not All Bad News In Florida

A judge got ahold of a case, read the law and constitution, applied them properly and now the gay adoption ban in Florida is gone:

Florida's strict law banning adoption of children by gay people was found unconstitutional Tuesday by a state judge who declared there was no legal or scientific reason for sexual orientation alone to prohibit anyone from adopting.

Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Cindy Lederman said the 31-year-old law violates equal protection rights for the children and their prospective gay parents, rejecting the state's arguments that there is "a supposed dark cloud hovering over homes of homosexuals and their children." She also noted that gay people are allowed to be foster parents in Florida.

Anti-gay hatemongers, let this be a warning to you. You can't stop equal rights for LGBT Americans, you can only slow them down. Do the right thing and get out of the way of equality for all Americans.
