CNN.COM has just reported that a Florida circuit judge declared it unconstitutional to prevent gays and lesbians from adopting children, saying "the blanket exclusion" of gay applicants "defeated Florida's goal of providing dependent children a permanent family."
Florida is the only state that specifically bans all "homosexual" people from adopting children, although it does allow them to be foster parents.
This month, Arkansas voters approved a ballot measure to prohibit unmarried partners -- same-sex or opposite-sex couples -- from adopting children or from serving as foster parents.
Obviously, I'm biased when it comes to this stuff but I think the main concern for everyone should be the children. Children need love and support to grow into upstanding citizens or... lesbian comedians and it shouldn't matter who parents as long as the children are cared for.
