Florida judge rules against gay adoption ban
The headline would have been more effective as “finally, someone from Florida shows common sense”, but the joke had to be sacrificed for the importance of this ruling. The Miami Judge found there was no rational basis for denying adoption rights to gays, and in the light of the tough times the homosexual community has endured, it’s good to see positive news for once.
There’s undoubtedly going to be legal saber rattling at this point, but it’ll be interesting to hear the other side of the debate argue there is a reasonable explanation for denying homosexuals the right to adopt kids. I’m sure it will be ‘enlightening’ to hear their homophobia disguised as legalese.
