Salute the FL AG: McCollum adopts correct position

by Jeremy Hooper

6A00D8341C503453Ef0133F5090C83970BBig news out of Florida: Attorney General Bill McCollum, a conservative who's not exactly known for LGBT rights sympathies, has announced that he will not appeal the District Court’s ruling that finally ridded the state of its hideous, Anita Bryant era adoption ban:

BREAKING NEWS: End of Florida Adoption Ban will NOT BE Appealed [FL Equality]

Though it should be noted that McCollum didn't do this out of interest in LGBT people: His statement expresses hope that "someday a more suitable case will give the Supreme Court the opportunity to uphold the constitutionality of this law."

But whatever. For now we'll take a rhetorical "Harumph!" if it means protecting Florida families indefinitely!
