Kentucky Church Sees The Light! Overturns Ban On Interracial Couples!

Filed under: Icky Icky Poo

So the church that banned interracial couples from its worship? Yeah, they realized how wrong and disgusting they were being.

Thanks to the spread of information, the church felt a hellish heatwave of questions from believers and non-believers all over!

So they reflected and found the decision to be discriminatory and have decided to only promote "peace, love, and harmony" from now on.

GOOD! We were seriously concerned for humanity there for a second

Victory! Florida Overturns Ban On Gay Adoption!!!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersLGBT

florida lifts ban on gay adoption

The Florida Department of Children and Families announced that they would not appeal the September decision by the 3rd District Court of Appeals, which ruled that the state's ban on adoptions by gay men and women was unconstitutional.

Joe Follick, the department's communications director, said:

"We had weighed an appeal to the Florida Supreme Court to achieve an ultimate certainty and finality for all parties.

But the depth, clarity and unanimity of the DCA opinion — and that of Miami-Dade Judge Cindy Lederman's original circuit court decision — has made it evident that an appeal would have a less than limited chance of a different outcome."

Ugh. He didn't seem to thrilled by the decision considering that Florida was the only state remaining that still prohibited gay adoption.

It's a huge victory! The state agency has removed the sexual orientation question from adoption forms.

Licensed foster parent Frank Martin Gill is the first openly gay person to adopt a child in Florida in more than 30 years. He tried to adopt two boys who had been placed in his care after the Department of Children and Families removed them from their home for neglect. He sued to have the ban overturned.

Amazing! Equality for all!!!
