Florida AG Wrong in Fight Against Same-Sex Marriage
Most importantly, the U.S. Supreme Court last year struck down a key part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, granting federal recognition to same-sex couples. According to the Human Rights Campaign, no state bans have since survived a court challenge.
Yet Florida continues to fight for the right to discriminate.
In court papers, Bondi said, “Florida’s marriage laws, then, have a close, direct and rational relationship to society’s legitimate interest in increasing the likelihood that children will be born to and raised by the mothers and fathers who produced them in stable and enduring family units.”
Bondi’s definition of family is nothing short of insulting to the same-sex couples who have adopted and raised children. It also makes you wonder how she feels about heterosexual couples who marry, but don’t have children. Does the state frown upon them, too?
