Florida Not Satisfied Being Told Gay Adoption Ban Is Unconstitutional

Gov. Charlie Crist, who loves himself some gay adoption banning, will be happy to see the state’s legal minions appeal the most recent ruling that labeled the law unconstitutional.

That ruling came in November by a Miami-Dade County judge; the state is appealing the ruling before an appeals court, because the original judge totally legislated from the bench! Judges aren’t supposed to make law, you see (but they often do). They are also, apparently, supposed to ignore the United States Constitution, but what do we know?

This means Martin Gill, the original plaintiff, is back in court today, wondering aloud why the F he can’t adopt his two foster children. Yes, Florida lets gays and lesbians become foster parents, but full adoption rights are reserves full parental rights for straight couples.
