On Sunday night, the progressive website Raw Story published a story by reporter John Bryne, who says he obtained a document that reveals that Charlie Crist will come out this week (pardon the pun) in support of a variety of issues in support of gay rights, such as:
Crist's vocal support for gay couples, including hospital visitation, inheritance and adoption rights; opposition to the ban on gays serving in the military; support for anti-discrimination laws and appropriations for HIV and AIDS programs.
Heaven knows the Governor has bounced around in terms of some of these issues, but according to Raw Story, Crist will be coming out strongly in support of gays being able to adopt - Florida stands alone in denying that right.
"We need to take politics out of adoption decisions, the governor says in the draft. That is why I oppose Florida's current law that requires Family Law judges to ignore what is right for a child in order to adhere to what Florida law blindly demands. There is only one question that matters: What is in the best interest of that child?
