In this crazy win-some-lose-some political season, no other issue has had a more mixed result than gay rights. Now a Florida judge has ruled the statewide ban on adoption by gay couples is unconstitutional. Wrap your head around this one: it’s now unconstitutional to gay-marry in Florida but constitutional to gay-adopt.
The state’s arguments were infuriating to say the least. According to the state, in addition to being drugged-out and wacky, gay unions are ”more unstable than heterosexual unions” and children adopted by gay couples suffer “a societal stigma.” Well, now whose fault is that??? You make it illegal – nay, unconstitutional – for them to marry then castigate them for having unstable relationships? GYAGGGHHH!!! Words fail.
Expect more interstate and intrastate chaos until the US Supreme Court sorts this out. Eventually. Let’s hope it’s a Court that can make the right call.
