In a nutshell, the 33 year old ban was called unconstitutional by a state appeals court when a gay couple, which was legally fostering two boys, filed suit in order to adopt. I can't imagine being an approved foster family and knowing that at any time your kids could be taken away from you. How could it possibly be good for anyone to have kids growing up for years in a loving family and then being ripped away because their parents happen to be fans of Bette Midler and collect Wizard of Oz memorabilia?
All kidding aside, Florida has taken a step towards the 21st century with this ruling. There are many couples who live there that have wanted families but couldn't have them. I personally know a couple who moved from Florida, leaving family and friends, to go to California for the purpose of adopting. Leaving your extended family behind to have kids. Yup, that promotes family values.
On another note, the pastor of a mega church has been accused of going after 17 and 18 year old boys attempting to "seduce them with cars, money, clothes, jewelry, international trips and access to celebrities". Wow, he had me at cars and money. Proving once again that religion is more dangerous to our children than a loving same sex family.
