Florida’s Anti Gay Attorney General

By Charlotte Robinson, May 31, 2014
With all the advancements towards full marriage equality across the country Florida is dealing with an unenlightened Attorney General who believes that "Gay marriage would cause harm". Equality Florida responds to AG Pam Bondi's dated position stating, “Court after court across the country has found that there is no legal basis to deny some Americans the dignity of marriage to the person he or she loves, yet Florida’s attorney general continues to hold on to unfounded arguments to legitimize a law that serves no purpose but to discriminate. To quote U.S. District Judge Arenda L. Wright Allen, who ruled against Virginia's ban on marriage equality, ‘We have arrived upon another moment in history when ‘We the People’ becomes more inclusive, and our freedom more perfect.’ Judges appointed by Republicans & Democrats alike have come to the inescapable conclusion - 19 times in a row - that such bans are wrong & constitutionally indefensible. Attorneys General in states across the country have upheld their duty to the U.S. Constitution by refusing to defend a law that so clearly violates basic rights. We call on Attorney General Pam Bondi to reconsider this stand in this defining moment. A defense of the indefensible only squanders our state's resources & delays justice for hundreds of thousands of Florida families. The majority of Floridians stand with us in support of marriage equality. We look forward to our day in court and are confident that equality under the law will prevail.” Let AG Pam Bondi know how wrong she is & she should watch our historic gay marriage video & learn something...

Let's hope for enlightenment...
Attorney Generals must protect the rights of all within their states. Let's hope AG Bondi gets out from under the clouds and enjoy the sunlight down there in Florida. I'm sure she has more important issues, not non-issues, to tackle. Thanks.
