A federal judge in Monroe County just struck down Florida’s ban on gay marriage. This small step is a historic victory. The wave of federal decisions in favor of gay marriage has finally hit the Sunshine State. In Monroe County, at least, marriage equality will exist for a while.
Hopefully, this historic ruling will not be overruled and will be followed by others.
Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is deplorably and predictably appealing the decision overturning the ban on gay marriage. While Judge Garcia said that gay couples could obtain marriage licenses starting on the 22nd of this, Bondi is asking for a stay. Let us hope she fails. If you are religious, pray. We must also turn that travesty of an AG out of office this November.
