'Herald'ing equality: Florida gets glimpse of 'controversial' non-controversy

by Jeremy Hooper

Florida-1Two weeks ago, we told you how a Florida circuit court judge put a chink in the stubborn armor of the state's gay adoption ban when he ruled that an openly gay Key West foster parent had the right to adopt a boy he has raised for the past seven years. Well now The Miami Herald has a through examination of the same-sex headed family at the heart of the case. Go check that out:

(H/t: Towle)

In legal terms, it has to be noted that this case is not a game-changer that will cause the Sunshine State's wretched adoption ban to fail. But in sentimental terms, it should be noted that cases like this, involving the TRULY "pro-family" love of a gay-headed family, will absolutely lead ALL anti-gay measures to fall from coast to coast. So we applaud The Herald for this portrait of loving "normalcy." These sort of stories are the keys that will eventually open the locks some folks have needlessly placed on peace.
