A step in the right direction for sure.
I wonder if this case will escalate to a higher court (or can it?).
seems to be a trend lately since the outrage over prop 8.....
lets hope the wave continues.
IIRC, doesn't the flow go from State Circuit Court -> State Supreme Court -> US District Court -> Circuit Court of Appeals -> SCOTUS?
Either way, it could be appealed to the State Supreme Court. I'm not sure of the flow after that on its way up to SCOTUS.
So we can't adopt... WTF... I'm gay and I don't believe in gay marriage. Mainly because marriage is a religious thing, so why do something that against someone's religion? What ever, I believe God can care less who I love and who you love...
But on the subject here... That's all I want, is to someday know that I can adopt a child or two. There's so many kids that could use a good home and so many good possible parents out there...
Marriage is not a religious thing, not LEGAL marriage. They are two seperate things.
No. There was a ban on gay adoption but now the judge lifted that ban. Florida gays can now adopt.
Oh, I read wrong
Thanks, for clearing it up! Happy day
that's too bad, I don't care what two consenting adults want to do, but they shouldn't be allowed to adopt and bring children into it.
Sweet justice for those who want to adopt. It's been a long time coming in Florida

My favorite quote
And bring them into what? a loving, caring, nurturing environment? Oh god forbid!
Yes, because living in an orphanage with 20 other kids and not getting the proper attention and care is a much better alternative
Or better yet, let's give free abortions to everyone so there are no kids to adopt. I bet that's an even better alternative
Well spoken my friend, well spoken...
Since this was a Florida appellate court, the next court in line is the Florida Supreme Court, and the US Supreme Court would be next, but only if there is a federal question.
If the current judge decided her case based on the Florida Constitution, then the road ends at the Florida Supreme Court.
Yes we've had this discussion ad nauseam.
Let me see if I can speed up the process:
You say: Gay couples will somehow mess up the children forever (make them gay, confuse them, etc).
Someone else says: Repeated studies show that children raised by gay couples do just as well (actually marginally better) compared to those raised by straight couples, and that children only really need love.
You say: gays with children is unnatural because that's not how god wanted it.
Someone else says: Infertile couples can have children, and what difference does it make as long as the child gets love and attention?
You say: Infertile couples aren't as "unnatural" as gays because they only have a problem with their plumbing, and that they still form the basic household unit.
Someone else says: What about single moms/dads?
You say: Bottom line, gays should not be allowed to have kids
OMG did I just finish the thread all on my own?
Great, now what are we supposed to talk about!
I suppose the children of straight parents who (one of them) have realized they are gay should be taken away from the mom/dad then.
I hope you never become a politician.
Why not? Scared it might make more gays?
It won't by the way. If that's how things worked we'd all be straight.
So how's the weather?
Clearly the choice only flows in one direction.
It's about damn time! It's legal just about everywhere else.
Take one step forward, two steps back.
If you're gay and live in Arkansas, I have to question your sanity.
Your right I'd much rather them be adopted by you...
