“It is past time for Florida to give up the fight. It’s a horrible, embarrassing, demeaning, costly fight. The quicker Florida throws in the towel, the better. Following all the other court rulings that a ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle said the ban is unconstitutional — the first time in Florida that a federal court judge has ruled that way. Still, the state continues the fight. They continue to appeal. They continue to spend taxpayer money. They continue to make same-sex couples wait for equality. How embarrassing. How idiotic. The state of Florida — actually, Attorney General Pam Bondi and Gov. Rick Scott — have lost. They need to admit it and give it up.” – Gary Stein, of the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel editorial board.
