Gay adoption ban violates FL's equal protection guarantees

Florida Judge Rules Against the Gay Adoption Ban

NPR's All Things Considered, November 25, 2008 ·
A Miami judge ruled Tuesday that there is no rational, scientific or moral reason that sexual orientation should be a barrier to adopting children, finalizing the adoption of two siblings by their gay foster father.

It saddens me that we need a judge to emphasize that statement above. It is a good thing, of course, but it is a real shame that we can't realize that humans are humans, sexuality is a spectrum, and who you love and are attracted to is just one piece of who we all are.

Also, the dad looks a little like Skinner from The X Files

i know, right? and considering how crappy the U.S. adoption process is and how many children are in foster care, you would think that making it easier for a couple (regardless of sexual orientation) to adopt would be the logical next step.

I know exactly what you mean - why does a judge have to even make this ruling?

Affirmative-action violates equal protection, but yet it exists also.
